HONG KONG, HONG KONG SAR, CHINA - OCTOBER 13: A giant umbrella made of umbrellas adorn the pavement in the 'Occupy Central' camp of Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, China, on October 13, 2014. The 'Umbrella revolution' or 'Occupy Central' is a civil disobedience movement that 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. Thousands of pro-democracy supporters are calling for open elections and the resignation of Hong Kong's Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying. (Photo by Lucas Schifres/Getty Images)
