Things are hotting up in Hong Kong with a mob now known as “Anti-Occupy Central” trying to break up the democracy protests.
The pro-Beijingers are wearing blue ribbons, and there’s evidence they’re being paid to provoke the students, and encourage police intervention to clear the streets.
Several students have been attacked with reports of sexual assaults, and some journalists have also been targeted.
Check out these tweets and vines from protesters, and journalists in Hong Kong:
