Benny Tai talking to students gathered in Causeway Bay as part of the 'Occupy Central ' movement which is organising events of civil disobedience to protest against the Chinese government's electoral policy for Hong Kong. Hong Kong was supposed to be having direct elections for the post of chief executive by 2017 but the government in Beijing has said that the election will only be from a list of pre-approved candidates. Benny Tai Yiu-ting, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Hong Kong, is the founder of Occupy Central with Love and Peace (OCLP), often abbreviated to Occupy Central.
