HONG KONG, HONG KONG SAR, CHINA - OCTOBER 01: A demonstrator holds high a lit cellphone to form a 'sea of lights' in Admirality, as part of a pro-democracy sit-in known as 'Occupy Central', blocking traffic on Gloucester Road, an otherwise busy multi-lane thoroughfare in 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.
