HK activists mull taking protest to Beijing


HONG KONG: Hong Kong’s democracy protesters are considering traveling to Beijing to directly petition Communist authorities as the Chinese capital hosts US President Barack Obama and other world leaders at an upcoming summit. The protesters have held continuous street rallies for a month, demanding free leadership elections for the semi-autonomous city in 2017. Beijing has refused to back down on its insistence made on August 31 that candidates in the vote must be vetted by a loyalist committee.
