Anti-Japanese Demonstrations Appear "Staged"

Wednesday, April 20, 2005 Posted: 04:46 PM JST

New York based independent news organization The Epoch Times reports today that anti-Japanese demonstrations in China appear "staged". According to the Epoch Times internet sources indicate that at least one demonstration in Shenzhen consisted of "mostly plain-clothes police".

It is widely known that demonstrations in China are usually not allowed. They tend to land the organizers in jail, or worse. We all remember what happened on Tiananmin Square in 1989. The Epoch Times however reports that the permit application for the Zhongguan Village anti-Japanese parade was submitted on the date of the parade. It was approved at the scene by the police. The article then produces a list of what happened to previous applicants of such permits. Many ended up in jail.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
