China’s anti-Japanese websites and Internet forums called for a second wave of rallies against Japan this weekend, as the government struggled with how to ensure nationalistic furore does not boil over.

In popular instant messaging forums, netizens spread word about the times and locations of planned demonstrations in major metropolises including Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenyang and Chengdu.

The protests were being timed for the visit of Japan’s Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura, who is scheduled to arrive in Beijing Sunday.
