Hong Kong protesters hold the banner with the picture of Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan near the Japanese Consulate in Hong Kong on Friday, Sept. 17, 2010 as they demonstrate on a ship collision near the Diaoyu islands (Senkaku islands). Kan faces a host of serious problems, from reviving Japan's sluggish economy to diplomatic spat with China over a boat collision near some disputed islands in the East China Sea claimed by both countries. Kan leaves for the U.N. General Assembly next week, but has no plans to meet with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, partly due to the tension. The sign reads " Memorial of the “ 918 incident,” the 79 anniversary of the Japanese invasion of China. Oppose the revival of Japanese militarism. Japan get out of Diaoyu Islands." less
