"HSBC Holdings Plc (5) won a Hong Kong court order for the removal of protesters who have spent almost 10 months under its Asian headquarters, one of the longest- running demonstrations sparked by the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Protesters must leave the area before 9 p.m. on Aug. 27, Master R. Lai said today at Hong Kong’s Court of First Instance. The court will assign a bailiff to execute the order, Lai said.

Protesters for Occupy Wall Street, whose movement to highlight income inequality spread from New York to other cities globally, were evicted in November, and others in London were forced to leave from their Finsbury Square camp on June 14. In Hong Kong, protesters numbering about 50 at the peak have pitched tents and laid out couches in the ground floor plaza under HSBC’s Central building."
