A week has passed since the protest movement in the main districts of Hong Kong started, but it has already begun to calm down. Some activists left the squares and went to their working places, however, hundreds of demonstrators are still in the streets.
About 300 protestors are in Mongkok – main trade district of Hong Kong. According to witnesses, most of so-called "demonstrators" are just bypassers and journalists, though.
About 20 protestors are staying in the front of the Chief Executive's office.
Near Causeway bay some high schoolstudent joined the demonstrators after the end of the classes, their total number has reached 50. In the crowd there were spotted some people who distribute blue silk ribbons (symbols of the Anti-occupy movement), but no clashes between the protestors and their opponents happened today.
The government promised to hold the negotiations with the representatives of protesting students today or tomorrow. According to the leader of Hong Kong Students Federation, if meeting takes place later than tomorrow, it will mean that the state has some doubts about the status and the shape of the upcoming negotiations.
"Will the demonstrators retreat or will they stay where they are, it's all up to the government", – says the leader of Hong Kong Students Federation Alex Chow.
