Japanese Executive Besieged in Dongguan over Pro-Japan Remarks

Posted: 07/1/2014 6:51 pm

The Japanese president of the Dongguan-based Chang’an automobile factory is trapped in a conference meeting room as more than 1,000 Chinese workers gathered outside to demand an apology over his remarks brushing off the Japanese invasion of China during World War II.

The Japanese executive was on a visit to the factory this morning (July 1) and told several executives in a meeting that Japan did not invade China during the war, but emancipated China from American colonialism, Guangming reported on July 1.

The remarks immediately drew a reaction from a Chinese executive named Zhang Hongquan, and quickly stirred up anger among other executives. By 11:30 am, about 1,000 employees gathered to tell the Japanese boss exactly how they felt about this remarks.

Apparently, the executive has offered to apologise.

    When all the workers will be replaced by robots, the only available job on the market will be to invade Japan. Well done, everybody (Chinese workers and the cunt Japanese boss), keep on living in the past.
