President Xi Jinping has made it clear that the buck stops with the chief executive for bringing the "umbrella movement" to a close. Chief Secretary Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor has made it clear that there is to be no further room for negotiation with the students.

A reporter for Radio Sweden recently flew in to report on the "umbrella movement". She said the movement is like a breath of fresh air to many in Europe.

Leung Chun-ying has finally come out with the truth. His real reason for denying open nomination for chief executive candidates is because, he claims, more than half the Hong Kong electorate earns less than HK$14,000 a month, so voting would favour this sector.

Youth of Hong Kong, your demands for real democracy have been heard. Not only in Hong Kong, but in other parts of the world. You have acted with admirable self-discipline, respect and reason.
