VIOLENT protests are rocking American
businesses in China as the country erupts with
demands for war.
Chinese citizens are demanding war with the US
after a longstanding territorial row exploded into
life last week.
More than a million square miles of territory in the
South China Sea are claimed by Beijing, but the
Hague dismissed its claim.
Now with America being blamed for the court’s
ruling, self-proclaimed patriots are protesting at
American businesses operating in China.
At least 12 Chinese cities have witnessed anti-US
protests outside KFC branches, according to
English-language news site Shanghaiist.
Cops have tried to disperse the crowds, but one
protest in Qinhuangdao – a city in China’s Eastern
Hebei province – turned violent.
Shouting “patriotism is not illegal,” the
demonstrators reportedly attacked a police officer
trying to seize their banners.
It comes after a wave of destruction targeting
iPhones – deemed American goods – swept
Chinese social media.
