What If They Gave a Protest and Nobody Came?
Getty Images has some interesting photos from today’s “anti-war” demonstration in Washington, DC, hosted by the peace-loving Stalinists of International ANSWER.
The interesting part: no overall crowd shots so we can gauge the size. The only crowd shot I’ve seen so far is at Yahoo, where it looks like the turnout was much less than 100,000 people. The biggest crowd seems to have been at the free concert.
