Hong Kong – Portrait of a Protest

1
John Ma (L), 62, a lecturer, and his wife May, 50, pose for a photograph at a rally ahead of an “Occupy Central” civil disobedience protest in Hong Kong September 26, 2014. As a former student leader, Ma said, “I support student protest and tell them to grab their chance”. China rules Hong Kong under a “one country, two systems” formula that accords the territory limited democracy. Tens of thousands of mostly student protesters are demanding Beijing give them full democracy, with the freedom to nominate election candidates. The unrest is the worst in Hong Kong since China resumed its rule over the former British colony in 1997. (Photo by Bobby Yip/Reuters)

Tens of thousands of pro-democracy protesters extended a blockade of Hong Kong streets on Tuesday, stockpiling supplies and erecting makeshift barricades ahead of what some fear may be a push by police to clear the roads before Chinese National Day.
