The crowds of protesters in Hong Kong swelled overnight with some estimates that 3-400,000 “will join in a show of people’s power,” on the eve of the two-day National Day holiday. With neither side showing any signs of backing down, protestors remain calm and police keeping their distance – though monitoring from on high – as the Occupy Central group said it will announce plans for its next stage of civil disobedience on Wednesday if Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying does not meet their demands for democratic reform, including true universal elections by October 1 and Leung’s resignation. Leung has called for Occupy Central leaders to “fulfill the promise they made to society” and immediately stop the protests, which he said have gotten “out of control,” adding that, for now, they could keep control without the help of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The protest meme remains one heard around the world – in addition to their concerns about democracy and out of control local government, Hong Kong’s younger generation are worried about low-paying jobs.
