So when you read something like this, then you know that the problem still exists. I quote:
Japanese nationalists have forced plans to screen a film examining the
country's wartime excesses to be abandoned after a campaign of intimidation that
included blockading cinemas.
A new documentary film, Yasukuni, was due to open at cinemas in Tokyo and Osaka on April 12.
The film, by the Chinese director Li Ying who lives in Japan, is about the Tokyo shrine that honours the nation's war dead, and examines Japan's imperial ambitions in the early decades of the last century.
Japanese politicians and commentators attacked the decision by cinema
managers, who were targeted by ultra-nationalist protesters who parked vans
covered in nationalistic slogans outside the cinemas and broadcast military
anthems over loudspeakers.
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
