BEIJING — Anti-Japan demonstrations broke out in at least a half dozen Chinese cities over the weekend despite efforts by authorities to rein in the growing protest movement, reports said Monday.

Calls for more protests on Tuesday also circulated widely spread on the Internet, including a planned march to the Japanese consulate in the western city of Chongqing.

The ruling Communist Party newspaper issued an editorial calling the protests "understandable," but urging demonstrators to plunge into their work and studies rather than take to the streets. The government has encouraged nationalist outrage over Japan's seizing of a Chinese fishing boat captain in disputed water, but is also wary of public protests, which have the potential to spin out of control and possibly even challenge one-party rule.
