Hong Kong protest: Demonstrators march to home of city leader after discussion break down

Up to 200 Hong Kong protesters today (October 22), marched to the home of the city’s China-backed leader (Leung Chun-ying) to push their case for greater democracy as calls for him to step down intensify.

This is coming a day after talks between student leaders and senior officials reached an impasse.

The protests have been against a central government plan that would give Hong Kong people the chance to vote for their own leader in 2017, but tightly restrict the candidates to Beijing (China’s capital) loyalists.
