On Air Date: 2013.06.24 (Mon)
Occupy Central. Pro-democracy groups say it's a plan for civic disobedience if demands for genuine universal suffrage were not met for the 2017 chief executive election by July 1st next year. But pro-establishment elements are warning of widespread chaos and threats to HK's image. The movement has already attracted radicals, retirees and hardcore capitalists alike. And The Pearl Report finds both advocates and opponents feel it gives them a new sense of purpose whether in promoting it or in stopping it.
