Hundreds of thousands vote in Hong Kong democracy ‘poll’ in defiance of Beijing

“Nearly 600,000 votes have been cast in three days of an unofficial referendum on democratic reforms in Hong Kong, part of a civil campaign that has been branded illegal by the former British colony and by Communist Party authorities in Beijing.

Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule in 1997 with wide-ranging autonomy under the formula of ‘one country, two systems’, along with an undated promise of universal suffrage.”
