Xi Jinping's image had been hilariously appropriated by Occupy Hong Kong protesters much to the confusion of Chinese mainlanders who visited Hong Kong during the Occupy Protests and saw their communist leader seemingly supporting the pro democracy protests.
C.Y. Leung is the third Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. In 2012 he won the Hong Kong Chief Executive Election with (57.4%) of a 1200 Beijing friendly Election Committee. Ending up with 689 of the votes, C.Y. Leung is referred to insultingly by Hong Kong residents as '689'.
Residents in Hong Kong created and display a poster in Mong Kok of C.Y. Leung with a yellow talisman across his face. This talisman is used to ward off zombies in Chinese culture.
During the protests C.Y Leung among many of his poorly managed media responses to protesters suggested they clear the streets and protest in parks.
In response to C.Y. Leung's comments about where they should protest, some protesters scaled 'Lion Rock' to unfurl a new banner.
In English the sign on top of Lion Rock translates as "I want true votes'.
The police later removed the sign by helicopter a few days later before the weekend, expecting a large turnout to scale the already famous peak.
The significance of the Lion Rock (besides being Lion shaped rock) can be read here.
Other people look on as a man poses in front of a sign saying "Protect the Students".
While many of the protesters were students and young people, other Hong Kong residents from different age groups came out to show their support even if opinions against the protests came from the older generation who didn't want their businesses disrupted.
Text reads - "Mum don't worry about me today I can see the world clearly at last".

Crowds gather round a poster.
Roughly translated, it reads as -
The Lately-Released Order
Because there is a large number of people taking part in the civil disobedience, and while the number of bus and taxi drivers who are against Occupy Central is comparatively small, this order is released to forbid those (bus and taxi drivers who are against Occupy Central) to access the main roads like Nathan Road, Argyle Street, Shanghai Street, Prince Edward Road, Boundary Street and Waterloo Road. Bus and taxi drivers who support the student movement are exceptions. Those who break this order will be sentenced to 15 years in prison.
