Hong Kong protest falters

On Thursday, the massive tent camps in the center of Hong Kong were removed, along with 200 arrested protesters that remained. The protesting started months ago, demanding free and open elections. But the Chinese government refused to give concessions and basically waited the protests out. After months, the support for the protests started to die out, the people  felt that the students aren’t achieving anything political and are starting to desert en mass.Finally on Thursday, police arrived and removed the camps within 24 hours.
