Hundreds of pro-democracy protesters clashed with police in Hong Kong on Sunday, indicating the two-month long demonstrations against the Chinese government would not quietly die out. Protesters gathered in the central business district in an attempt to close in on government buildings. Protesters chanted "surround government headquarters" and "open the roads,” as police pepper-sprayed the crowds and dragged at least two people to the ground. The protest comes after four nights of clashes in the rougher, working-class district of Mong Kok. However, it is unclear what the lasting influence of these protests will be. Although younger Hong Kong citizens still appear committed to the protests, the overall interest has dropped. Protester numbers have fallen from their peak of over 100,000.
