For the first time in 70 years, China decided to celebrate the victory of WWII with a military parade. During the run-up to the event, Beijing got ready with a never-seen-before level of ubiquitous security personnel-- police, armed police, security guards, security volunteers, as well as traffic restrictions, markets shut-down, etc., all in the name of security.
