Pro-Democracy Protesters Return to Hong Kong’s Streets (Video)

Pro-democracy protesters returned in their tens of thousands to Hong Kong’s central district last night calling for full democracy in the former British colony.

The protesters, who are mostly students, resumed their peaceful protests after the pro-Beijing government cancelled talks on Friday. They rallied at the Admiralty protest site (now dubbed “Umbrella Square”) with some staying overnight in tents.

The protestors are demanding free and fair democratic elections and they don’t want to be told by the Chinese Communist Party for who they can vote for.

Going by what the protest leaders and their supporters are saying it appears they’re pitching in for the long haul.

According to the South China Morning Post, Hong Kong’s Chief Executive CY Leung and Chief Secretary Carrie Lam are now in China’s Guangdong province for meetings.

It appears that CY Leung and Beijing are playing the waiting game in a bid to turn public opinion against the student’s blockading parts of the city.
