Passions run high as Hong Kong marches for democracy

Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying said his government would do its "utmost" to move towards universal suffrage and stressed the need for stability after nearly 800,000 people voted for full democracy in an unofficial referendum last month. #facebook #Arabic #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Mexico #democratic #opinion
