Hong Kong protest shoppers show their true colours
Hong Kong protest shoppers show their true coloursWith retail sales down and tourist numbers plunging, Hong Kong's economy appears headed for its first annual contraction since 2009. HONG KONG: Seven months of unrest have taken a heavy toll on many Hong Kong businesses, but pro-democracy protesters are now seeking to reward shops and restaurants that support their cause by building a "yellow" economy.
