Occupy Hong Kong Protests Continue After Camps Cleared (Photos)

This week the two remaining occupation sites of the Occupy Hong Kong protest movement (also referred to as the Umbrella Movement) were cleared. The protesters took over streets and occupied them for 75 days, demanding the right to nominate candidates for the chief executive elections, the next of which is in 2017.

While the camps were finally cleared after over two months, protesters in Mongkok continue to take to the sidewalks at night walking up and down and while "shopping". (The chief executive said people should go shopping after the camp in Mongkok was cleared.) Their protests attract a lot of police to keep them from taking over the roads or doing anything else they aren't supposed to do. It's a good place for editorial stock photos.
