China's central government is describing the so-called Occupy Central movement in Hong Kong as an "illegal gathering."

At the same time, mainland authorities say they're confident authorities in Hong Kong are able to handle it.

The Occupy group in Hong Kong is opposed to the new plans for universal suffrage in the city.

Hong Kong Chief Executive CY Leung says the Hong Kong government considers the Occupy movement illegal.

At the same time, Leung says his government plans to continue moving forward with the consultation process.

"And in so far as consultations and the question of constitutional development is concerned, it is also important to bear in mind that we have to operate within the framework of the stipulations of the Basic Law and the National People's Congress Standing Committee's decisions because these are the legal and constitutional frameworks for Hong Kong's constitutional developments to go forward in."

Protests this weekend in Hong Kong turned ugly, with police being forced to use tear-gas to disperse demonstrators who were trying to push through police lines.
