Protesters carry a banner featuring with Hong Kong's Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying's picture and Chinese words "Step down now" in a downtown street during an annual pro-democracy protest in Hong Kong Monday, July 1, 2013. Tens of thousands of Hong Kong residents demanded their widely disliked Beijing-backed leader resign and pressing for promised democratic reforms so they can choose their own top representative. The march is an annual event that underscores the growing gulf between Hong Kong and the mainland 16 years after the city ceased to be a British colony and came back under Beijing's control.
