China rules out HK concessions

A top Chinese envoy has ruled out making any further concessions to pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, just a day before the city’s embattled leader meets the public in a bid to defuse the months of chaos. 

Hong Kong has been rocked for more than three months by huge and sometimes violent protests pushing for greater democratic freedoms and police accountability. The movement represents the biggest challenge to Beijing’s rule since the international finance hub was handed back by Britain in 1997. Carrie Lam, the city’s unelected pro-Beijing leader, is set to meet 150 persons chosen by lottery on Thursday for the first of what is being billed as a series of “dialogue sessions”.
