Hong Kong, Sep 28 (ANI): Tens of thousands of people massed in the heart of Hong Kong to move forward with Occupy Central protest movement late on Saturday demanding more democracy, as tensions grew over Beijing's decision to rule out free elections in the former British colony. Thousands of people converged on the headquarters of Hong Kong's government overnight into Sunday. Leaders of the movement Occupy Central with Love and Peace said the protest marked the beginning of their plan to blockade the financial district, hoping it will escalate into one of most disruptive protests in Hong Kong for decades. The crowds swelled less than 24 hours after riot police used pepper spray to disperse protesters around government headquarters, arresting more than 60 people opposed to the Chinese government's tightening grip on the city.
