HONG KONG, HONG KONG SAR, CHINA - SEPTEMBER 30: Protestors sit under umbrellas to protect themselves from the sun, as part of a pro-democracy sit-in known as 'Occupy Central', blocking traffic on Hennessy Road, an otherwise busy multi-lane thoroughfare in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, on September 30, 2014. Now sometimes named the 'Umbrella revolution', the Occupy Central civil disobedience movement began in response to China's decision to allow only Beijing-vetted candidates to stand in the city's 2017 election for the top civil position of chief executive.
