Small demonstration at the Japanese Embassy
It was fun to be at the scene of a small-scale protest against Japan. This is a rather typical anti-Japanese protest, unlike the nationwide marches that took place over three weekends in April 2005.
China Daily has the officially sanctioned story. The Hong Kong-based Phoenix TV has similarly abbreviated coverage. This Chinese blogger was more impassioned in his retelling of the 30-minute protest. Some of the comments ask why there weren't more participants.
Of the 20 protesters, only Zhao Ronglai and Feng Jinhua accepted interviews.
