Former official warns of violent protests
(05-13 18:08)

A former senior civil servant has warned that "hot-headed" young people could hijack the Occupy Central movement, and turn the peaceful civil disobedience campaign into a violent one.
Rachel Cartland -- a former deputy secretary for Recreation and Culture -- said that while the organizers of the democracy campaign are hoping to occupy the streets of Central peacefully, they may not be able to keep some of their more radical supporters under control. --RTHK
