HONG KONG, HONG KONG SAR, CHINA - OCTOBER 01: Two protestors draw an umbrella on the pavement, as part of a pro-democracy sit-in known as 'Occupy Central', blocking traffic on Yee Wo Street, an otherwise busy multi-lane thoroughfare in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, on October 1, 2014. Now sometimes called 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.
