Hong Kong students fine-tune plan to take democracy call to Beijing

(Reuters) - Students calling for full democracy for Chinese-ruled Hong Kong are hoping to take their protest to Communist Party rulers in Beijing and are expected to announce details of their new battle plan on Thursday.

The plan signals a shift in the focus of the protests in the former British colony away from the Hong Kong government which has said it has limited room for maneuver.

But China is highly unlikely to allow any known pro-democracy activists into Beijing, especially if the trip coincides with this weekend's Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum there.
