This is not the first time that Chinese citizens have acted against the country’s political norms.
In August, four young men posed in Japanese military uniform against the backdrop of the Continental Bank Warehouse, where Chinese troops defeated an invading Japanese force in a week-long battle in 1937*2. Three of them were detained in Shanghai weeks later, after authorities tracked them down despite a lack of surveillance cameras in the area*3.
The same month, two other men were also detained in Guangxi’s Binyang county for disturbing public order after they posed in Japanese second world war military uniforms outside a railway station*4.
