The clearance of Hong Kong's main pro-democracy protest camp will begin Thursday when bailiffs move in, authorities said, but some demonstrators vowed to stand their ground after more than two months of rallies.Protest leader Alex Chow of the Hong Kong Federation of Students (HKFS) told AFP that occupiers would remove barricades from the injunction zones to avoid action from bailiffs and police.Frustrations boiled over at the end of November when protesters and police clashed outside government headquarters, leaving dozens injured on both sides.Although the ruling only covers parts of the Admiralty protest zone, local media reports said that police -- who have always labelled the occupation illegal -- would clear the entire area, as well as a smaller protest site in the shopping district of Causeway Bay.Protesters would stay "until the last minute" but not directly confront police, said a 31-year-old artist at the Admiralty site who gave his name only as Wong.
