What’s your secret spot in Beijing?
China protest against Japan and boycotts Japanese products.
My name is Angel Arvizu and I am an American living in China. I took this photographs during a protest in Yiwu city, about 1 hour away from Hangzhou, Zhejiang. There were not enough police officers to control the area, but luckly it was not a violent protest. There were thousands of protesters and only a handful of police officals. There was no destruction of property this time and no injuries that I was aware of. The city just stopped due to the large amount of people on the streets. They were chanting "Boycott of Japanese products!!!"
