Anti-Japanese protest broke out in Beijing this weekend
BEIJING, Sept. 15 -- Anti-Japanese protest broke out in front of the Japanese embassy in Beijing this Saturday. More than ten thousands of people gathered around the embassy, showing their anger towards Japanese Government.
The protest broke out for the Japanese Government's recent action on the Diaoyu Island（Senkaku Islands）. The central government of Japan finished a deal to make sure the island in control on September 11.
This action is believed to stop the Tokyo Government buying the island as a local government, avoiding more troubles between the two countries.
But most Chinese people think it is a naked threat to China. Some explain the disputed island is now belonging to Japan legally.
More than ten thousands people in Beijing, the country's capital, marched through the street in front of the Japanese embassy. “Down with the small Japanese”, people are shouting all around.
The flag of Japan was burned up. Some people threw empty bottle into the embassy yard but no severe damages were caused. Army police stood at the gate of the embassy, stopping people get to close to the embassy building.
The government didn't stop the protest, showing some kind of democracy. Some doubt those attending the demonstration were organised by the government itself. This similar situation happened in 1999, when the NATO bombed the Chinese embassy in FRY. College students were carried to the U.S. embassy by the buses offered by the government.
Protests happened in Xi'an, Shanghai, Chengdu and other major cities in China. Some protests lead to violence but most are under the police control.
