Major demonstrations in Hong Kong over election reform

The Alliance for Peace and Democracy organized a demonstration in Hong Kong involving tens of thousands of people to counter a proposed protest by the Occupy Central Group. This Group is opposed to perceived anti-democratic interference by Beijing and growing divisions over how Hong Kong's leader should be chosen in 2017 under the planned reforms. Occupy Central has threatened to block roads to paralyze the city centre and the financial district.
