Hong Kong students lead fight for democracy

Thousands of students skip classes to attend protests against Beijing’s decision to impose restrictions on 2017 polls.

The pressure on the Chinese government is building up to reverse that only a couple of vetted candidates will be allowed to run in Hong Kong’s 2017 elections.

Students are leading the fight, with thousands skipping classes to attend demonstrations.
