Documentary to Feature Hong Kong Democracy Protests — Read in Chinese | 点击查看本文中文版 A year has passed since the police fired tear gas on pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong, setting off a huge sit-in protest movement that took control of a large portion of the center of the city for more than two months, generating headlines the world over and shocking the Communist Party leaders in Beijing.

Protests in Hong Kong Have Roots in China’s ‘Two Systems’ — It is the wording of the Basic Law, and the legislature's interpretation of what it means, that set off the dramatic street protests in Hong Kong last week. Article 45 of the law, which was ratified in 1990, states that Hong Kong's top leader, the chief executive, should eventually be chosen "by universal suffrage upon nomination by a broadly representative nominating committee in accordance with democratic procedures."

Occupy Central Series: Dan Garret on Beijing’s Role in Candidate Filtering — Mike Forsythe continues his excellent coverage of Hong Kong politics, with his third Question and Answer piece with Michael Tien. Tien argues that, "the referendum is pushing for a nomination procedure that is without restriction, and that is steadfastly being ruled out by China, and they're very serious about it.
