Thousands of pro-democracy protesters blanketed downtown Hong Kong Wednesday night for one final rally in what appears to be the end of the city's "occupy" movement — at least for the near future.
Thursday morning, Hong Kong police started to break down barricades and clear the streets at the main protest site. A recent court order allowed authorities to step in after more than two months of the so-called "Umbrella Revolution."
CNN spoke with a couple of protestors who said, while the current demonstrations downtown are coming to a close, the movement will persist.
