The defined actions, of occupying Diaoyu islands and assaulting Chinese fishermen as well as ramming thier boats by the Japanese, were sanctioned by the Japanese government.  That is why the protest was directed against Japan.  But I agree we should separate the actors, like the Japanese soldiers, the Japanese officials, and the Rightwing Japanese activists, from the rest of the Japanese people, on first cut.

I'm not a racist in any way, shape or form. I'm just asking the question, why are the Chinese allowed to protest when it involves anger and hatred for another country (whether it is justified anger or not is not the point) and not allowed to protest over very serious human rights issues in their own country? Other countries protest about everything, internally, externally, they protest over wage disputes, they protest over union rights, they protest over bad government decisions, they protest over banks, they protest over bad leaders, bad bosses, bad government members, corruption, repression, abuse, they protest over ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING that they feel is unfair and wrong, including if they disagree with the actions of a foreign country.

So why are innocent everyday Chinese people allowed to protest, and ONLY allowed to protest about another country, and to show their anger and rage and fury over another country, and to destroy property of innocent people who have nothing to do with the island issue from another country. What are they showing to the world by displaying their anger and rage and fury?

Can someone please answer this question for me?

The "Master of the Flood Gates" ... regulate the flow of the water !
It is indeed very practical that the party is  judge, legislator, head of the army, executor  and  publisher  all in one in China.

The Chniese people have protested about everything, 10,000 protests or more each year, you were just not listening.  The Chinese government is not allowing more protests against Japan.  There are just more protests by the people against Japan.  Like right now, do you know why the Chinese people are protesting?
