Young journalists in Hong Kong on Occupy protests

From Nine To Noon, 9:10 am on 30 September 2014

It's being called the umbrella revolution - extraordinary scenes on the streets of Hong Kong, as young pro-democracy demonstrators face off against riot police armed with teargas and pepper spray. Tens of thousands of people have occupied part of the business quarter for a second night. The demonstrators object to China vetting who can stand as the city's chief executive in elections in 2017. Kathryn Ryan speaks to local Hong Kong journalist Isabel Wong, and Erin Hale, a Hong Kong-based freelance journalist, who writes for The Guardian.
