HONG KONG -- Protesters here reaffirmed their demands for political change Thursday night after Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam held her first dialogue with members of the public following four months of unrest.

The two-hour dialogue, held under heavy security and meant to air public grievances in the Asian financial hub, appears to have failed to calm the activists, as none of their key demands were accepted.
