Bikini-clad Shenzhen girls call for “rational” protest against the Japanese

This one can be filed under “bizarre”.

Shenzhen has been dealing with the aftermath of large-scale protests on Sunday, in which Japanese cars were burned and the windows of Japanese shops were smashed.  Amid the melee, some called for more rational ways to express disapproval over Japan’s claims to the Diaoyu Islands.

The call for more sober-minded protest was articulated yesterday by a man and two young women in their bikinis.  They staged a “protest” in the crowded area outside of Shenzhen Book City with signs reading “Civilized Patriotism – Rational Anti-Japanese Protests”.  They had Japanese knives between their legs and held toy rifles.  (WTF?)

Anyway, their attention-grabbing performance drew quite a crowd, as you can see in the video below.
