The class boycott staged by Hong Kong students morphed into the long-awaited Occupy Central on Sept. 28, with riot police now using pepper spray, and tear gas against civilians.

Here’s a live feed via local media Apple Daily showing the current situation outside the government headquarters. (Current on Sept. 28 – note this video will expire).
