A group of people against the "Occupy Central" movement in Hong Kong have initiated an assembly to gather people's signatures to demand demonstrators leave the streets.

Leticia Lee, an organizer of the anti-Occupy assembly, says they aim to gather more support from local residents to put an end to the occupation actions.

"We have had enough of this. Over the past weeks, the movement has brought us many inconveniences and troubles, especially to the residents in Mong Kok. We have received many complaints as you can see a mess there."

Lee also said that they will launch a "counter-encirclement" movement to push the occupants to evacuate from the street if the government does not clear them before Tuesday.

Hong Kong has witnessed waves of demonstrators blockading roads in key commercial areas, disrupting traffic and business activities over the past two weeks.
