Protests in Hong Kong

Thousands of protesters have taken over the streets of Hong Kong in pro-democracy demonstrations. The protesters are responding to China's decision to allow only Beijing-vetted candidates to stand in the city's election in 2017 for chief executive, Hong Kong's top civil position. The protests became violent during a police crackdown, with more than 40 people injured, but participants remain camped out in the streets.

 

Are you in Hong Kong? Have you witnessed the protests or taken part in them? What do you think China's response should be? Share your photos, videos, and thoughts, but please do not put yourself in any danger. Please share original images only.
