Splinter protest groups are springing up in Hong Kong and fast-tracking action plans ahead of a possible mid-week clearance of the main camp site at Admiralty. The Legco president warned on Monday that the demonstration area in front of the Legislative Council is no safe haven for protesters if the clearing campaign begins. 

"If the protesters enter the demonstration area during the clearance action, we can not stop the police from conducting law enforcement in this area. This is Police Regulations," says Tsang Yok-sing, president of HK SAR Legislative Council.

On Monday, protesters were thin on the ground at key arteries in Admiralty, the home to government offices. Local media say court bailiffs and police are expected to move in from Wednesday. In Mong Kok, police have been back on patrol during the night as some protesters returned, disrupting business and traffic flow. Earlier Hong Kong SAR Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying said action to remove the major camp site at Admiralty will be announced at what he called "an appropriate time".
