Schools reopened and civil servants returned to work Monday morning after protesters cleared the area outside the city's government headquarters, where they had gathered for more than a week.About 25 protesters, mostly students, refused to budge from the site, and some say they plan to stay for as long as they can. Tens of thousands of people, many of them students, have poured into the streets of the semi-autonomous city since Sept. 28 to peacefully protest China's restrictions on the first direct election for Hong Kong's leader, promised by Beijing for 2017 .The protesters also are demanding the resignation of Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, the city's current leader, but he has refused to step down.
