Image of Asia: Climbing for democracy in Hong Kong

In this photo by Kin Cheung, a hiker looks at the yellow banner reading "I want genuine universal suffrage" in Chinese and "Umbrella Movement" in English hanging from the face of Lion Rock mountain in Hong Kong. Democracy activists hung the banner on the mountain in support of the protest movement in which thousands of demonstrators have camped out on the streets of the southern Chinese financial center for nearly a month to press their demands for greater democracy.
