A flashy supercar parade was organized by Chinese Australians in Sydney in protest against India over the Doklam standoff on its 70th Independent Day, according to Australia’s Sydney Today on Aug. 15.

Decorated with Chinese flag patterns and patriotic slogans, such as “Borderline is baseline” and “China, not an inch less,” ten luxury cars, including Bentleys, Lamborghinis, and Maserati passed by universities, Martin Place, Sydney Opera House, and other landmarks before they arrived at the Consulate General of India in Sydney and revved their engines loudly in protest against India’s intrusions into Chinese territory.

The organizer of the parade said the drivers followed traffic laws and driving rules. “We wanted to demonstrate our determination to defend our sovereignty in a civilized way,” he said. “The aim was to draw public attention to the issue, rather than to show off.”

In 2012, an “anti-aggression parade” was organized in Australia to protest Japan for denying past aggression with China, drawing lots of attention.
