domestic friends who support fishing protection have heard that there is a Japanese Youth Society in Japan. They are the ones who built a lighthouse on the Diaoyu Island. Japan Youth Association is a subordinate group of Suji society, one of the three major underworld societies in Japan. In 1978, eight members of the Japan Youth Association successfully landed on the island and built a lighthouse 5.5 meters high on the Diaoyu Island.

before the outbreak of the Sino Japanese War of 1895, Japan had not raised any objection to China’s sovereignty over the Diaoyu Islands. However, why are the Diaoyu Islands under the actual control of Japan?
Japanese adventurers initially wanted to collect bird hair.
precisely because Japan insisted that the Diaoyu Islands were ownerless, it is not surprising that Japanese history boasted that the first adventurer to land on the Diaoyu Islands and carry out development. This person is Gu he chensiro, born in 1856 in Fukuoka county. It is said that this man is restless and likes adventure. When Gu he chensiro was doing business in Shiyuan City, he heard others talk about the Diaoyu Island. He boarded the Diaoyu Island for the first time in 1884 and found that there were groups of albatrosses on the island, which was in the spawning period. He wanted to collect a large number of feathers on the island in order to make high profits, so he applied to the Okinawa Prefecture Government to open up the Diaoyu Island. However, Koga chensiro’s application was called back because the Japanese government did not know the ownership of the Diaoyu Islands at that time and was worried about causing dissatisfaction from neighboring countries. But soon, the Japanese government faded its hypocritical caution. On January 14, 1895, the cabinet meeting of Japan adopted a resolution to bring the Diaoyu Island under the jurisdiction of Okinawa Prefecture, and erected signs on the island.
in 1894, the Sino Japanese war broke out. With the defeat of the Beiyang fleet, China was defeated. In 1895, China and Japan signed the Treaty of Shimonoseki, and China ceded Penghu and its affiliated islands to Japan. Diaoyu Island is an affiliated island of Taiwan, and of course it is also within the scope of the treaty. And Japan took possession of these islands without waiting for the treaty to be signed.
on December 9, 1941, China officially declared war on Japan and announced the abolition of all Sino Japanese treaties, including the Treaty of Shimonoseki. On December 1, 1943, China, the United States and Britain issued a declaration in Cairo, insisting on Japan’s unconditional surrender, depriving Japan of all islands captured or occupied in the Pacific since World War I, and returning Chinese territory occupied by Japan, such as northeast China, Taiwan, Penghu and its affiliated islands, including Diaoyu Islands.
in 1945, Japan surrendered unconditionally and Taiwan returned to the motherland, but the Diaoyu Islands and other islands were occupied by the US military as a shooting range. In 1951, the United States and Japan illegally signed the San Francisco Peace Treaty with Japan behind the back of the victorious country China. Although Article 2 of the peace treaty stipulates that Japan waives all its rights, names and demands on Taiwan and the Penghu Islands, Article 3 mistakenly places the Diaoyu Islands and other islands stolen by Japan under the jurisdiction of Ryukyu under the custody of the United States.
Japan and the United States colluded with each other to seize resources
in 1968, Japan, the United States and the United Nations Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East confirmed that there were large oil fields in the waters near the Diaoyu Islands, so Japan colluded with the United States in an attempt to occupy the Diaoyu Islands. In November 1969, US President Nixon reached an agreement with Japanese Prime Minister Sato to return the Ryukyu Islands to Japanese control in 1972. At the same time, there were repeated reports that the United States wanted to hand over the Diaoyu Islands to Japan.
this practice of the United States aroused strong repercussions from Chinese at home and abroad, and the fishing protection movement began to reach a climax. On May 15, 1972, the United States illegally handed over the Diaoyu Islands and other eight islands to Japan as part of the “return” Okinawa treaty. Japan brazenly dispatched patrol ships of the maritime security agency, shouting to “show its ownership of the island with actions”.
at the time of the dispute over the sovereignty of the Diaoyu Islands, the Japanese government accelerated the pace of actual possession. In the late 1960s, after the United Nations Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East announced that the waters near the Diaoyu Islands might be rich in oil resources, Japan immediately took unilateral action. First, a number of oil companies went to explore and set up sovereignty monuments on the Diaoyu Islands and other islands before the transfer of jurisdiction over the Ryukyu Islands, that is, in July 1970, It also stipulated Japanese names for the eight islands of the Diaoyu Islands.
in 1971, when the United States and Japan signed the agreement on the return of Okinawa, they privately gave and received each other and included Diaoyu Islands and other islands in the return area. The deal was strongly protested by the Chinese government. In 1972, in the negotiations on the resumption of diplomatic relations between China and Japan, the two sides, proceeding from the overall situation of China Japan friendship, agreed to suspend the ownership of the Diaoyu Islands and leave it to be solved when conditions are ripe in the future. However, when China and Japan negotiated and signed the Sino Japanese Treaty of peace and friendship in 1978, some Japanese congressmen hostile to China proposed that China recognize Japan’s sovereignty over the Diaoyu Islands. The Japanese government complied with the requirements of right wingers and dispatched patrol boats and aircraft to monitor the fishermen working in the waters of the Diaoyu Islands.
in May of the following year, the Japanese government used inspection ships to transport personnel and equipment to Diaoyu Island, established an unmanned meteorological observation station on the island, and sent investigation missions and survey ships there.
Japan Youth Association is a triad.
after entering the 1990s, with the changes in the world situation and the balance of power among countries, Japan once again extended its hand to the Diaoyu Islands. In October 1990, with the permission of the government, some right wingers in Japan built lighthouses on an island of the Diaoyu Islands. Japan also sent 12 ships and two helicopters to prevent Taiwan fishing boats from approaching the Diaoyu Islands. On August 18, 1996, Japanese right wingers erected wooden signs painted with “Sun flag” and commemorating the dead on the Diaoyu Island. It is worth noting that these activities carried out by Japanese right-wing elements on the Diaoyu Islands have been condoned and supported by the Japanese government, and the government dignitaries cooperate with this, saying that the Diaoyu Islands are Japanese territory and requiring the Japanese maritime security agency to be ready to eliminate “interference” by force at any time.
domestic friends who support fishing protection have heard that there is a Japanese Youth Society in Japan. They are the ones who built a lighthouse on the Diaoyu Island. Japan Youth Association is a subordinate group of Suji society, one of the three major underworld societies in Japan. In 1978, eight members of the Japan Youth Association successfully landed on the island and built a lighthouse 5.5 meters high on the Diaoyu Island. Since then, the Japanese Youth Association has more than six or seven people and less than three or five people. They go to the island to repair and maintain the lighthouse every year.
what makes people angry is that the Japanese Youth Association handed over the lighthouse to the Japanese government on February 9, 2005, when it was taken over by former Anti China Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi. The Japanese government immediately sent personnel from the maritime security agency to board the Diaoyu Islands, set up management signs, and officially “nationalized” the Diaoyu Islands. The Japanese government secretly went from being afraid to act rashly about the Diaoyu Islands more than 100 years ago to being unspeakable, then to being blatant, and finally had to fight for justice.
