The Chinese communist regime opposes Japan's nationalization of the Diaoyu Islands (Senkaku Islands). On the 11th, Xinhua News Agency claimed that two patrol boats were sent to surrounding waters of Diaoyu Islands to declare sovereignty. By the evening of the 11th, however, the Japanese coast guards could not confirm this information. Chinese people feel the Communist regime only talks empty words; domestically, it has no respect of people's rights and overseas, it does not defend its territory. Activists believe the regime is only displaying a gesture in foreign matters. What they are concerned about is no trouble breaking out prior to the 18th National Congress.
The communist regime voiced strong condemnation against Japan's purchase of the Diaoyu Islands (Senkaku Islands). The Liberation Army Daily published an article warning the Japanese government not to push the Diaoyu Islands issue to the brink of crisis. However, Osamu Fujimura, Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary, stressed rejection of China's protests at a press conference.
Mainland activist Zou Wei indicates that if the Diaoyu Islands are China's territory, but have up until now been controlled by another country, something doesn't add up. Zou Wei points out that with worsening human rights a constant problem in China, the people's first impression when the government speaks of territorial disputes, is that a conspiracy is transpiring.
Mainland activist Zou Wei: "We all know that China has been in political darkness for a long time. Consequently, people enjoy no human rights, and foreign sovereignty is not guaranteed. As a result, the Diaoyu Islands have long been controlled by another country."
Last month, anti-Japan protests of various scales took place all over China. People question the authority's inability to protect land and cease illegal house demolition. What capacity does it have to defend the Diaoyu Islands, they wonder. Some mainland netizens suggest that instead of anti-Japan, people should be anti-communist.
For years, forced demolition and land acquisition are one of the main methods of profit for the Chinese Communist regime. The Communist regime does not care at all about the people.
Consequently, many self-immolations in protest of demolitions have taken place in China.
According to a SOH radio report, Kong Xiangqi of Huludao, Liaoning, faced illegal forced demolition of the house he legally owned. In desperation, Kong Xiangqi protested by pouring gasoline on his body. The officials of the demolition team did not stop him, forcing him to ignite, said Kong's son.
Zou Wei: "We know a country is valued not for the economy or military, but for its human rights. It is simply embarrassing to talk about defending territory with domestic human rights not respected or protected."
The CCP mouthpiece, Xinhua News Agency, reported on the 10th that China Marine Surveillance ships 46 and 49 will arrive in the waters of Diaoyu Islands on the 11th to safeguard the sovereignty.
However, Japan stated that as of the afternoon of the 11th, no surveillance ship was observed in the Diaoyu waters.
Mainland activist En Guang: "It is a gesture. In fact,
I believe their true concern is to ensure no disputes break out before the 18th National Congress."
According to a BBC China report, media have cited an authoritative source which said that the Communist regime has negotiated with Japan over the Diaoyu Islands purchase. The CCP is willing to accept the status quo of Japan's control of the islands as long as Japan guarantees no development, no landing, and no investigation will take place after the islands are purchased.
The report revealed that the Communist regime has indicated to Japan that strong opposition remarks will be issued to appease Chinese sentiments.
