Hong Kong police have been clashing with pro-democracy protesters near the government complex, after a week of escalating tensions.
Dozens of demonstrators were arrested, with hundreds vowing to stay put to continue the protest.
Protesters are demanding one-man-one-vote from the Chinese government which wants to select candidates for them to vote on.
