HONG KONG, Nov. 6 — Hong Kong and Macao activists will protest against Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Beijing over a string of uninhabited islets in the East China Sea that are the crux of territorial disputes between China, Taiwan and Japan, a group member said Thursday.

Chan Miu-tak, former head of the Action Committee for Defending the Diaoyu Islands whose members landed on one of the Japan-controlled Senkaku islets in 2012 to declare Chinese sovereignty, said they will launch a protest during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit demanding Abe apologize and compensate China for Japan occupying the islets and distorting Chinese history.

"We will try to access the APEC venue, if we fail, we might go to the Japanese Embassy instead," Chan told Kyodo News by telephone before leaving Hong Kong. (PNA/Kyodo)
