Hong Kong Evicting Occupy Protesters

Last Occupy camp in Asia


Hong Kong on Tuesday sent bailiffs to evict protesters camped outside the HSBC bank headquarters, the last outpost of the anti-capitalist "Occupy" movement in Asia.

Unarmed officers began clearing around a dozen protesters from their camp on the ground floor plaza of the bank's office tower, which has been occupied since October last year.

Some of the defiant demonstrators were carried out but others remained despite remonstrations from the court-appointed officers.
