The Boxer Rebellion was an uprising that took place in China in 1900. As European nations increased their influence on China, feelings against foreigners grew among the Chinese. An organization called the Society of Righteous and Harmonious Fists was formed to demenstrate the Chinese's discontent. They soon came to be known as the Boxers. The Boxer Rebellion began with a series of attack on Chinese Christians. Foreigners in the interior and foreign diplomats in Beijing were also attacked. Armies from Japan and the west crushed the uprising and forced China to grant more privaleges to foreign powers. China also had to pay a large indemnity. After the defeat many Chinese called for Western Reforms.

It was the 'Society of the Righteous and Harmonious Fists' desire to drive out all foreigners from China, that led to the Boxer Uprising (or Boxer Rebellion) - so the problem was not caused by any particular country.
