HONG KONG, HONG KONG SAR, CHINA - OCTOBER 03: An anti-Occupy protester yells at pro-democracy protesters, saying she works here and that they disturb her work, in Jardine's Bazaar, in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, on October 3, 2014. Protesters, who also have suffered attacks from anti-Occupy protesters, have started to regroup their supplies stations to stronger positions. Also 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. Protest leaders demanded the resignation of Hong Kong's Chief Executive C.Y. Leung Chun-ying, who failed to comply. (Photo by Lucas Schifres/Getty Images)
