Hong Kong Democracy Protest Plan Worries Foreign Businesses

The Canadian, Indian and Italian chambers of commerce in Hong Kong joined brokers and executives in opposing a planned pro-democracy protest, publishing a letter that said the demonstrations may “cripple” businesses.

Organizers of Occupy Central, who are threatening to bring the business district to a standstill with protests if their demands for universal suffrage aren’t met, should rethink their plans and argue their case through other channels, the foreign chambers said in a quarter-page advertisement in the South China Morning Post newspaper today.
