All you have to do is look (57)

An anti-China demonstration in Tokyo yesterday. The Chinese media said several thousand people were present, but the AFP news agency from France thought 800 was more accurate.
The sign the woman on the left is holding says that Japan-China friendship is a fantasy. The sign in the background asks why the Japanese government is still giving subsidies to students from China. The sign draped over the man at right says that the Self-Defense Forces should be stationed at the Senkakus.
The Chinese media said it was a “right-wing” demonstration. Had those been Chinese people with Chinese flags and signs that said “Kill Small Japan”, they would have said it was a patriotic protest.
The Chinese media treated it as one of the big stories of the day, while the Japanese media barely noticed. Some Chinese on the net saw that one of the Japanese demonstrators carried a sign that read, “Chinazism”. (Not bad, that.) They were so incensed they bought the domain name Chinazism.com. with the idea of using it to dump on Japan. You can see it here. The copy at the top reads, “Chinazism? What qualifications do you devils from small Japan have to use that word?”
