HONG KONG: ‘ Protesters Announce They Will Lift Blockade of Key Government Buildings Amid Looming Deadline ‘

#AceBreakingNews – HONG KONG – October 05 – Hong Kong protesters have announced that they would lift a blockade of key government buildings, amid a looming deadline by the government to clear the streets.

Benny Tai, leader of the Occupy Central movement, said during a major demonstration late Saturday that protesters should cede to a demand by Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying to clear access to the government headquarters.  
“We only target CY (Leung), not other government officials. By opening a route, CY will have no reason or excuse to clear our occupation and spread foul rumors,” said Tai.

The decision came after Leung warned earlier in the day that the government was determined to “take all necessary actions to restore social order” and in particular allow 3,000 government staff to resume work by Monday morning.
