Anti-Occupy Central campaign to start earlier
(07-10 16:48)

The Alliance for Peace and Democracy will start its signature campaign against the Occupy Central on July 19, two weeks earlier than the date set previously.
Alliance's spokesman Robert Chow Yung said his organization has received overwhelming responses, where more than 80 bodies endorsing the campaigns, a huge jump from 30 in the early stage.
''I will accept fate if we can only get 200,000 to 300,000 people signing for us,'' he told reporters, adding that the Occupy Central should listen to his organization if it receives more than 800,000 signatures. The campaign will also take signatures from everyone including children and tourists. The online section will start on August 2 as planned.
Chow's campaign is set to last on August 17, with the duration much longer than the informal referendum done by the Occupy Central movement.
