HONG KONG (AP) — Three protest leaders in Hong Kong — two professors and a pastor— are calling for an end to street demonstrations to prevent violence and take the campaign for democratic reforms to a new stage.
Benny Tai Yiu-ting, Chan Kin-man and Chu Yiu-ming said they plan to surrender to police Wednesday to take responsibility for protests that have shut down parts of the Asian financial center for more than two months.
They represent only one faction of demonstrators. Most of the protesters are students.
They say their surrender also will serve as a silent denunciation of Hong Kong’s government.
