Hong Kong pro-democracy protests 2014-2015

Editor's note: The reform plan that was rejected by Hong Kong's legislature would have allowed citizens to vote for their leader for the first time but required that candidates be vetted by a pro-Beijing committee, the Wall Street Journal reports. Twenty eight lawmakers voted against the reform package and most pro-government lawmakers staged a walkout during the vote. The proposal set off last year's massive protests. - Stephanie
