Hong Kong activists in fightback after China vote decision

Pro-democracy activist Albert Chan (2nd R) prepares to take part in a 'slow drive' through the city, next to the Hong Kong government complex, on September 1, 2014Hong Kong activists launched their fightback Monday against Beijing’s landmark decision to limit voting reforms, heckling a senior Chinese official in angry scenes after hopes for full democracy were crushed. Li Fei, a member of the top committee of China’s rubber stamp parliament, was forced to speak over the cries of pro-democracy lawmakers and protesters during a meeting with local officials in the southern Chinese city. Brief scuffles erupted outside the venue as police deployed pepper spray to stop protesters from storming the hall where Li told delegates that China will not tolerate a local leader who is disloyal to the mainland. “Anyone who does not love the country, love Hong Kong or is confrontational towards the central government shall not be the chief executive,” he said.
