Three of the founders of Hong Kong's protest movement called Tuesday for an end to street demonstrations to prevent further violence and to take the campaign for democratic reforms to a new stage.Professors Benny Tai Yiu-ting and Chan Kin-man and Pastor Chu Yiu-ming said they plan to surrender to police on Wednesday to take responsibility for protests that have shut down parts of the Asian financial center for more than two months.Tai said it wasn't clear whether police would simply send them home, or detain them for inciting the protests, which the Hong Kong and Chinese governments have denounced as illegal.While the trio's call to end the protests threatened to fracture the movement, Tai denied they were abandoning the demonstrators.
