hong kong protest

Thousands of protesters take to the streets calling for universal suffrage and chanting slogans against new Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying in Hong Kong on July 1, 2012 only hours after Chinese President Hu Jintao completed his three-day visit to the southern Chinese territory. Hong Kong's new leader Leung Chun-ying, who earlier in the day was sworn in at an inauguration ceremony, took over the city of seven million people amid falling popularity ratings, a series of setbacks and protests over his leadership before he even started his term.
