The car being smashed below looks like it has Shaanxi Province plates. According to a report on the Sichuan Daily website , the demonstration started with 300 students from Sichuan universities but then swelled quickly.

A report on the demonstrations in Tokyo (which presumably set off the Chinese demos in Xi’an, Chengdu, Beijing and maybe Hangzhou on Saturday. On Sunday there was an anti-Japanese demo in Mianyang, Sichuan, a military industrial city that does some nuclear weapons) made it seem like the Japanese police had the demonstrations there under tight control. Demonstrators were only allowed to approach the Embassy in groups of three or four, yell their slogans and depart so the next grouplet could come. http://udn.com/NEWS/WORLD/WOR3/5915581.shtml
A search on Chengdu on Twitter and came up with many results in both Japanese and Chinese. http://twitter.com/#search?q=%E6%88%90%E9%83%BD
