Hong Kong, China

A student does her homework at the Causeway Bay site as behind her bystanders are reading pro-democracy posters. Not all protestors are youthful students as can be seen from the man beside her. The 'Occupy Central' (or 'Occupy Central with Love and Peace') movement in Hong Kong has been organising events of civil disobedience, such as sit-ins on busy roads, to protest against the Chinese government's electoral policy for Hong Kong. The activist's main demand is that elections for the post of Chief Executive, due in 2017, be open to all candidates. However, the Beijing authorities have insisted that the candidates in the election will only be drawn from a pre-approved list.
