Topic: More than 1,000 activists stage 'black cloth' march in Hong Kong


By Donny Kwok and Diana Chan HONG KONG (Reuters) - More than 1,000 pro-democracy protesters clad in black marched silently through Hong Kong on Sunday, holding banners saying they felt betrayed and angry at Beijing's refusal to allow fully-democratic elections for the city's next chief executive in 2017. "Beijing has breached our trust! Universal suffrage is hopeless!" read another one. Dozens of pro-establishment protesters gathered nearby waving banners and cursing the democracy activists and students. "Students should focus on studying!" shouted Pok Chun-chung, an organizer of the pro-establishment "Protect Hong Kong" movement.
