  1. Is the Umbrella Revolution Folding?

    After nearly 60 days, the Mong Kok protest site in Hong Kong was dismantled on Wednesday morning. Police arrested more than 100 people, including leading student activists Joshua Wong and Lester Shum. When the site was previously cleared on October 17, it was almost immediately reclaimed by crowds. But the police now appear more organized and the protests — demanding greater popular participation in elections — have lost public support. Attention will now turn to the largest remaining occupied site, located near police and army headquarters.
