Anti-Japan protests in China

A few years ago the Chinese had massive protests against Japan, and it appears we could be in for a repeat.

Beware in China, Japan warns citizens
Japan has warned its nationals in china to take precautions ahead of likely anti-Japanese protests this weekend, when a sensitive anniversary will be followed by an expected announcement on whether Japan will prosecute a Chinese trawler captain seized in disputed waters.
In some sense, this is nothing new—see the 2005 anti-Japanese demonstrations.

Protests are picking up quickly though:
In Guangzhou, protestors hurled beer bottles at the Japanese consulate. In Tianjin, they damaged Japanese buildings and fired ball bearings at a foreign school. In Hong Kong, activists stormed the Japanese consulate.
