NEW DELHI: A group of Indian students based in Japan on Sunday launched protests against Chinese President Xi Jinping’s aggressive polices across various parts of Asia.

The protests in the backdrop of the ongoing LAC standoff were held at famous Hachiko statue near Tokyo’s Shibuya station.

These protestors raised slogans against Xi’s aggressive policies against Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, India, Bhutan, South China Sea and East China Sea either by force and also against Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) projects, ET has gathered.


The Chinese leader is trying everything within his means to suppress the genuine voices of pro-democracy youth activists in Hong Kong which is beset with pro-democracy protests for over a year, according to the Indian students. The Indian students were also joined by other nationalities including Japanese and Taiwanese besides Tibetans.

The Taiwanese protestors felt that Taiwan a highly advanced and progressive country is also facing various pressure tactics from China and was recently denied representation at WHO at even though Taiwan was one of the two countries, other being Vietnam which put forward a counter-strategy to combat the spread of Covid-19.

Had the WHO paid heed to the early alarm raised by Taiwanese health authorities regarding COVID-19, the devastation wrought upon by Covid-19 would have been mitigated. Xi’s surreptitious handling of COVID-19 and lack of transparency has raised eyebrows. Many countries have complained about receiving faulty equipment including faulty test kits from China.

Xi, according to the protesters, manipulated Chinese Communist system to secure himself as a lifelong Chinese President.

What has been surprising is that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) under Xi Jinping’s leadership has initiated unprovoked violence in Galwan valley, Ladakh.

While the world’s biggest democracy has disclosed the details of the casualties following the June 15 clash, China has hidden the casualties.

The protestors demanded that China require a responsible leader who shall be democratically elected by the Chinese people.
