We included a picture of the man on the right, Li Zhao, in an article that we published earlier this week showing 16 of the craziest images from this weekend’s anti-Japanese protests in China.What may not have been immediately apparent is that Li isn’t threatening violence — he’s warning against it.
The sign that Li is holding on a road in Xi’an reads “CAR SMASHINGS AHEAD, JAPANESE CAR OWNERS SHOULD TURN BACK NOW”.
It’s a clear warning to turn back because an anti-Japanese mob is ahead.
Li’s kindhearted (and somewhat risky) action has lead to him being branded a hero by multiple users on Weibo.
