14/01/2015 HONG KONG - CHINA
A group of about 20 pro-democracy lawmakers opened up umbrellas, symbol of the protest movement, in the Legislative Council's chamber, urging Leung to quit. Outside the building, they continued their protest. In his first speech since last year's pro-democracy demonstrations, Hong Kong's pro-Beijing leader remains steadfast in his position. For him, "Hong Kong's power originates from the central authorities," and its "high degree of autonomy" is "not an absolute".
