Global Voices Online :: As the tension between China and Japan over the disputed Diaoyu Islands has elevated, large scale anti-Japan protests have taken place all over China in more than 80 cities over the weekend.
Some of the demonstrations turned violent, protesters started attacking Japanese style restaurants, shopping malls (watch the video below, source: FMN) and shops; some even tried to set fire to Japanese vehicles.
[Oiwan Lam:] Yet, in a country where online activities are closely monitored and public security forces are extremely effective, many wondered what made these nationwide protests possible.
