Hong Kong democracy activists blast 'shameful' Britain

Democracy activists rally in Hong Kong on August 31, 2014Hong Kong democracy activists hit back Friday at comments from Britain welcoming Beijing’s plans for limited voting rights in the southern Chinese city, describing them as “shameful” and “cowardly”. Activists in the former British colony had their hopes for genuine democracy dashed after China announced on Sunday that the city’s next leader would be vetted by a pro-Beijing committee. In a statement late Thursday Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office said: “We welcome the confirmation that China’s objective is for the election of Hong Kong’s Chief Executive through universal suffrage.”
