Hong Kong’s leader unbowed after massive weekend protest


Hong Kong’s leader on Tuesday again ruled out further concessions to protesters who marched peacefully in their hundreds of thousands this past weekend. The six-month protest movement has five demands, including that Hong Kong’s leader and lawmakers all be directly elected and that police actions against protesters be independently investigated. The only demand that has been met was the withdrawal of the proposed extradition legislation that triggered the movement in June. The protest march Sunday on Hong Kong Island was one of the biggest since the mass demonstrations started against the now-withdrawn bill that would have allowed criminal suspects to be extradited for trial in Communist Party-controlled courts in mainland China.
