Hong Kong residents chanted, “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution now,” as results from local elections came in on Sunday. Pro-democracy opposition candidates won a landslide victory, gaining control of 17 of 18 district councils and winning nearly 90 percent of the 452 seats. An unprecedented 71 percent of 4.1 million voters in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory participated, compared to 47 percent in the last local election.
