Alexa Olesen: Anti-Japan Protests Continue in China

From AP, via the Guardian:

erupted for a second day in China on Sunday, as Tokyo demanded an apology and better protection for its citizens and diplomats after demonstrators smashed windows and threw eggs at the Japanese embassy…

Some 10,000 protesters surrounded a Japanese-run Jasco supermarket in the southern city of Shenzhen on Sunday, said Ide Keiji, a spokesman for the Japanese Embassy in Beijing.

They shouted “Boycott Japanese goods!” and some threw plastic bottles of mineral water at the store.

About 3,000 people marched toward the Japanese Consulate General in the southern city of Guangzhou for a peaceful “spontaneous demonstration” and police were maintaining order, said a spokesman with the Guangzhou municipal government who refused to give his name when reached by telephone.
