Other protesters refused to leave their sit-in camps, the South China Morning Post reported.

The city's embattled leader, Leung Chun-ying, has warned that police will "take all necessary actions" to clear occupied streets by Monday, to allow government workers to return to work and affected schools to reopen. The mass civil disobedience campaign, launched Sept. 28 after a week of student class boycotts, has paralyzed several key commercial districts.

Robert Parry: Eyes Finally Open to Syrian Realities

AssadIn late summer 2013, Official Washington was rushing to the judgment that the “evil” Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had launched a barrage of missiles tipped with Sarin gas to slaughter hundreds of civilians in rebel-held neighborhoods near Damascus.

It was inconceivable to virtually every person who “mattered” in Washington that there was any other interpretation of the events on Aug. 21, 2013. Washington Post national security columnist David Ignatius even explained the “big picture” reason why President Barack Obama needed to launch punitive bomb strikes against Assad’s government for crossing Obama’s “red line” against using chemical weapons.

Jean-Claude ‘Baby Doc’ Duvalier dead at 63

baby Dic Ducalier diesJean-Claude-Duvalier, the self-proclaimed “president for life” of Haiti whose corrupt and brutal regime in the 1970s and 1980s sparked a popular uprising that sent him into a 25-year exile, died Saturday of a heart attack, his lawyer said.

Reynold George said the former leader died at his home. He was 63.

Duvalier, looking somewhat frail, made a surprise return to Haiti in 2011, allowing victims of his regime to pursue legal claims against him and prompting some old allies to rally around him. Neither side gained much support, and the once-feared dictator known as “Baby Doc” spent his late years in relative obscurity in the leafy hills above the Haitian capital.

UK Drops Charges Against the War Critic It Jailed for Seven Months

Moazzam Begg freedFormer Guantanamo detainee and War on Terror critic Moazzam Begg, who was arrested on dubious terror charges in February, is once again free. Earlier today, British authorities announced that charges against Begg had been dropped in full, and that he would shortly be released from Belmarsh Prison in London.

In a press statement regarding his release, West Midlands police said that:

New material has recently been disclosed to police and CPS, which has a significant impact on key pieces of evidence that underpinned the prosecution’s case….I understand this is going to raise many questions. However, explaining what this newly revealed information is would mean discussing other aspects of the case which would be unfair and inappropriate as they are no longer going to be tested in court.
