HONG KONG: Planned summer demonstrations by democracy activists were behind China’s decision to snub Hong Kong in favor of Beijing as host of a key Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) finance ministers’ meeting. Democracy activists from the “Occupy Central” group have threatened to flood the streets of Hong Kong’s business district with thousands of protesters to try to force officials to guarantee electoral reform.
