Just picked this story up off the wires.
Things look a bit leery in Lanzhou, a city in north-west China.
I watched the anti-Japan protests in my city (Xiamen), and there were people there that seemed to be there for no other reason than to vent at their frustrated lives.

The nation, as a whole, and from what I see, are well-controlled, but I do pick up on stories like this fairly regularly (without looking too hard). China - tricky country to manage. Downright difficult for some.
