Demonstrations in Canada, the US, Bosnia and Britain are being planned as part of a wider global solidarity movement involving petitions, marches and “Yellow Ribbon Days” in favour of universal suffrage for Hong Kong.

The international events are taking place after a week-long pro-democracy student strike in Hong Kong and ahead of a series of sit-in protests organised by pro-democracy group Occupy Central. Dozens of students remain gathered at government headquarters where protest leader Joshua Wong was arrested last night.
