Occupy Central and Hong Kong Protests - How is this impacting your PR business?

Hong Kong is experiencing mass acts of protest to keep the democracy which was promised back in 1997 and is currently at risk of being taken away by the Chinese government of Beijing. The protestors are leading peaceful marches to protest against China's new plan for Hong Kong's 2017 election, which looked like China reneging on its promise to grant full democracy. However what is interesting and unusual for Hong Kong is the police are reacting to this with surprising force, including tear gas and guns firing rubber bullets which looked awfully militaristic. In response, outraged Hong Kong residents flooded the streets to join the protesters.

Over the last few days businesses have closed, shops have shut and firms have allowed staff to leave the office to join the protests.

Whether you are a Hong Kong citizen or running a business we would love to hear your views on how the last few days has and will impact the PR industry.
