REAL NUMBERS: Global Day of Action participation Current rating: 0
22 Mar 2005
In an attempt to document the numbers participating in the worldwide Global Day of Action protests, data from IMC (and a few other sources) are used to offer an accurate portrayal of worldwide participation. It is unfortunate how this information was denied/ignored by many media sources.

GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION – MARCH 19, 2005
Protests worldwide March 18 – March 20, 2005

Compiled by: Rebecca Valencia, Springfield, Missouri


Although national and local media affiliates gave little, or no, recognition of the global peace movement, the numbers cannot be denied. One activist in Springfield, Missouri compiled the statistics from all the www.indymedia.org sources available. Other sources reporting protests in a particular city are noted.

Great work Rebecca.
btw, I spoke with Ira Harritt (of the KC American Friends Service Committe) yesterday about the protest numbers. He said that he had directed an assistant to count the crowd. The assistant reported back 'over 400 but he had missed some of the attendees.'

(Our local FOX News misreporter could only count up to "200." Guess they need a refresher course in basic mathmatics. Par.)
