Share via E-Mail Bookmark HONG KONG: Activists in Hong Kong plan to stage sit-ins at shopping malls and student rallies on Saturday (Sep 14) after a night in which protesters took to the hills to form lantern-carrying human chains, the latest demonstrations in months of unrest. They also plan to gather outside the British Consulate on Sunday to demand that China honours a Sino-British Joint Declaration that was signed in 1984, laying out the former British colony's future after its return to China in 1997.

The spark for the protests was a now-withdrawn extradition Bill and concerns that Beijing is eroding civil liberties, but many young protesters are also angry about sky-high living costs and a lack of job prospects.
