HONG KONG, October 6. /TASS/. The main government offices resumed work on Monday in Hong Kong where mass pro-democracy protests have been diminishing, a TASS correspondent reports from the scene.
Just dozens of demonstrators now remain in downtown Hong Kong, China’s special administrative region, and some roads are still closed, seriously disrupting the traffic of buses on a number of routes.
In general, the situation in the city, world's top financial center, is relatively calm. Studies resumed in secondary schools located in downtown Hong Kong. Primary schools and kindergartens remain closed.
Banks resumed operations in the zones of protests, and just seven branches are still shut down.
On Sunday, demonstrators promised to pack up the tent camp in Mong Kok, on the western part of Kowloon Peninsula, where 30 people have been detained as a result of fierce clashes over the past few days.
Up to 200 protesters remain in the area and are acting peacefully. Police have taken no steps to disperse the crowds.
Mass demonstrations demanding the democratization of elections in Hong Kong have been continuing for more than a week. A total of 165 people involved in the protests have been injured.
The movement has been labeled "the Umbrella Revolution" for the umbrellas that many people are holding to protect themselves from pepper spray and tear gas as well as to cope with oppressive heat.
