Taiwan’s Next Media Animation has a satirical take on China’s heavy-handed response to calls for anti-government protests. Keep an eye out for the panda goons, who you may recognize from their previous roles in ‘Hu Jintao Goes to Washington‘ and ‘Tiger Moms.’

As TIME’s Austin Ramzy reported on Sunday, online appeals for demonstrations in major Chinese cities yielded crowds composed mostly of security personnel, tourists and foreign reporters. SeveralĀ  journalists were reportedly attacked and a reporter for Bloomberg TV was badly beaten by a man dressed as a street sweeper.
