Hong Kong Protesters Make Subdued Return To The Streets
Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement marched Sunday in the first big rally since last year's Occupy Central movement collapsed.By Matt Picht | February 1, 2015
For the first time in over a month, pro-democracy protesters marched through the streets of Hong Kong Sunday to rally against Beijing's influence on the city's 2017 elections.
But the scene was much different from last year's Occupy Central movement, which featured massive crowds of protesters occupying the city center and clashing with police for months.
Sunday's assembly was much smaller in scope; protest organizers estimate 13,000 people took part in the procession, while police put the figure at 8,800.
