The Hand:

Represents China holding on to the General Secretary, a symbol of how much control the Chinese have over the Vietnamese government.

The Protesters:

Their various signs say, “Protect Hoang Sa and Truong Sa (Paracel and Spratly),” “Spratly and Paracel of Vietnam,” and “China is invading.”

The Puppet General Secretary:

“Quit protesting so loudly.  You are embarrassing us in front of the Chinese!  This is not the peoples’ affairs, this is the governments’ affairs!”
