HONG KONG - OCTOBER 14: A pro-democracy 'Occupy Central' protester participates in a sit-in facing armed police who just removed barricades in Admirality on October 14, 2014 in Hong Kong. In the morning of October 14, police removed barricades and re-opened Queensway lanes for traffic. A third week of civil disobedience movements continues 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. Protestors are calling for open elections and the resignation of Hong Kong's Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying. (Photo by Lucas Schifres/Getty Images)
