Protester: Chinese censors no match for foreign media coverage

Hong Kong (CNN) - A spokesman from the Hong Kong Federation of Students is undeterred by the efforts of the Chinese government to block social media sites and censor coverage of massive protests in Hong Kong, saying it's a "hurdle" they expected.

"In China, democratic movements encounter many hurdles and one of them is no matter how many people are out there on the street, they will try their best to suppress instead of hearing the voice of the people," Yvonne Lang tells CNN's Jake Tapper. "Provided that there are a lot of foreign media who came to Hong Kong for news regarding this movement, I believe that the message could be spread all over the world, including mainland China."
