Activists hold swords between legs to call for rational anti-Japan protests

Recently, two women and a man, clad in bikinis, were spotted holding Japanese swords between their thighs to call fellow Chinese to be well-behavored patriots and avoid irritional and violent anti-Japanese protests, on a street in Shenzhen.

Over the last weekend, China has seen the largest flare-up of public anger over Japan in years, after 10 Japanese right-wingers swam ashore and raised Japanese flags on one of Diaoyu Islands in East China Sea.

Tens of thousands of protesters took on streets across China to voice their opposition to the landing and call for a boycott of Japanese products.

Some rabid groups of protestors attacked Japanese cars, restuarants, shops and other businesses related to Japan as well during the demonstrations, which aroused opposition among the public.

But the publicity stunt apperantly turned off major netizens, who criticized the organizers aiming to gain attention in name of anti-Japanese protest.

Seven reported road collapses in nine days shake Harbin city

On August 14, a young victim’s family put up a photo of her at a scene of a road cave-in accident to mourn her tragic death and demand an answer from the relevant authorities in Harbin city, capital of China’s northmost Heilongjiang. The teen died after falling into a deep pit caused by a road collapse at Liaoyang Street of the city.

From August 9 to August 17, seven cases of road cave-in have reportedly occurred in the city, leaving two residents dead and two others injured.

But on the Internet, widespread pictures have suggested that more road pits had been spotted throughout the city in 8 days.

The incidents have put the municipal government under fire for shoddy construction, which said they were still probing into the cause of the incidents.
