Occupy British Consulate calls it quits after 178 days

As Occupy Central descended upon Hong Kong and was dismantled 79 days later, a less visible protest held on for dear life while the city resumed normal activity.

Pro-democracy protesters have been camping outside the British Consulate in Admiralty for almost six months, but finally decided to end their campaign on March 29.

The organiser, Daniel Ma, announced that he no longer believes the occupation serves a purpose, since protesters have already spoken to the British Parliament and British MPs are currently busy with their upcoming elections.
Ma added that he also wants to concentrate on studying for his exams, which of course, are also very important.
