Hong Kong Protests


The protests sparked in late September when the Chinese government announced rules limiting who could stand as a candidate in elections for Hong Kong's leader. These elections are scheduled for 2017. The democracy activists Occupy Central then launched a civil disobedience movement. They were joined by students who began a separate class boycott. The original sit-in took place in the Central district. The Chinese government has publicly supported Hong Kong's Chief Executive CY Leung though the protesters in the streets are calling for his resignation.
