Workers start clearing away barricades at an occupied area outside government headquarters in Hong Kong Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2014. The removal comes after a Hong Kong court granted a restraining order against the protesters last week requiring them to clear the area in front of a tower in the central part of Hong Kong as well a separate order against a second protest site Mong Kok brought by taxi and minibus operators.
