More mass protests planned in Hong Kong after peaceful weekend of ralliesHong Kong is gearing up for more protests this week after hundreds of thousands of anti-government demonstrators braved heavy rain to rally peacefully on Sunday, marking a change to what have often been violent clashes. The protests began more than 11 weeks ago as opposition to a now-suspended bill that would allow suspects to be extradited to mainland China for trial in Communist Party-controlled courts and have swelled into wider calls for democracy. Further demonstrations are planned in coming weeks, including another strike in districts across the former British colony.
