Japan has apparently reached an agreement with the private owner of several islands that are very rich with natural resources and a commercial transaction is pending. The problem is that both China and Taiwan are claiming rights of ownership for the respective islands.
Nationalists and generally misguided people in China have started a line of protests against the deal and Japanese businesses with factories and holdings on the mainland have suffered during the past days.
In a country with raging corruption and complete lack of interest about the citizen, people don’t fight for their rights as underpaid workers, but they seem to be content to protest about historical rights over some islands that offer them absolutely no benefit.
Workers in Chinese Panasonic
factories have reportedly
committed several acts of sabotage in various locations and the Japanese management has decided to stop production temporarily and let the workers relax a bit.
We believe the protesters will be considerably more relaxed when the monthly paycheck will be missing.
