Thousands demonstrate in Hong Kong

Twenty-thousand pro-democracy demonstrators rallied outside Hong Kong government buildings on Sunday. The protestors are demanding a better government, the removal of the China-backed Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa, as well the right to elect their own leader. The rally is the latest in a series of protests which began on July 1, when half a million people protested against an anti-subversion law planned by the Tung government, which it then postponed.
