    Protesters in Hong Kong have been out on the streets for 16 weeks, resisting what they say is Beijing’s growing control over the semi-autonomous region.

    But the latest front in this battle seems to be happening in Hong Kong's business sector.

    Some analysts say China is putting pressure on companies in Hong Kong to make their employees toe a pro-China line.
