    What are they protesting for? When did it begin? How many are the protesters?
  19. savehk Member

    Protesting for universal suffrage. We Hongkongers would like to have the right to nominate and choose our own Chief Executive.
    The Student Strike started on Monday, and yesterday(Friday), secondary school students joined the protest. As the gov't refuse to answer citizens' request for discussion, the organizer (The Hong Kong Federation of Students and Scholarism) called protesters to go in to civic square.
    The organizer have not yet announced the number of protestors. However, as we can see in the broadcasts, there's a few thousand of citizens. And more will join the protest in the morning.

    Please watch live broadcast for most-updated info.

    Leaders of the local Occupy movement are shit. They're helping China indeed.

    I was just watching this on CNN.

    For those younger folks who might not remember 1989 this was tried once with devastating results. My heart goes out to these students and may they be kept safe.

    I remember watching Tiananmen square in 1989 and crying in front of my television. These kids bring new meaning to the word Courageous

    from 1989:
