FILE - In this Aug. 16, 2012 file photo, an anti-Japan protester tears Japanese Rising Sun Flag during a rally outside the Japanese Consulate General in Hong Kong as they demand Japanese government to release Chinese activists arrested in Japan after landing on Uotsuri Island, one of the islands of Senkaku in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese. Chinese government's sensitivity over protests that took place in several Chinese cities on Aug. 19 over the set of islands, known as Diaoyu in China and Senkaku in Japan, reflects its perpetual fear that allowing its people too much freedom to hold protests, any protests, could snowball into domestic dissidence.
