A giant banner hangs in a street near the campsite of pro-democracy protesters in the Mongkok district of Hong Kong, on October 25, 2014Hong Kong's pro-democracy protesters were Sunday forced to suspend a planned vote on their next steps -- hours before it was due to begin -- due to differing opinions about how to move their month-long campaign forward. Four weeks after tens of thousands of Hong Kongers took to the streets demanding free leadership elections for the semi-autonomous Chinese city, protesters remain stubbornly encamped across several major road junctions. With Beijing insisting that candidates for the 2017 vote must be vetted by a loyalist committee -- an arrangement the protesters deride as "fake democracy -- there is no end to the stalemate in sight. The vote by mobile phone had been set to take place on Sunday and Monday evening to gauge protesters' opinions on what their next moves should be.
