Hong Kong: 130,000 march on New Year's Day
Marchers demand Chief Executive CY Leung's resignation and 'one person one vote'
An estimated 130,000 joined protest marches on 1 January against Hong Kong's leader Leung Chun-ying, also known as "CY".
His government is just six months old and the New Year's Day protests were only the latest expression of mass anger towards the unelected government, and the pressure is clearly mounting.
