Mure Dickie: Chinese police warns against anti-Japanese protests

From the Financial Times:

Chinese police have sent a message warning against anti-Japanese demonstrations to more than 30m mobile phone users as part of a campaign to prevent protests planned for next week’s May holiday.

The warning, sent as a text message to mobile phones in the eastern province of Jiangsu this week, underlines the government’s determination to counter the use of wireless technology by activists to mobilise and win greater reach for its own propaganda.
