Protests...were held in Australia, Asia and Europe, but many events were far smaller than organizers had hoped. In London, police said 15,000 people joined a march from Parliament and Big Ben to a rally in Trafalgar Square. The anniversary last year attracted 45,000 protesters in the city.The Times Square protest in NY drew a scant 1000 protesters, and the DC protest by the Vice President's residence only reported 300 attendees. This was an interesting comment:
Judging by the number of people that turned out, most people don't give you a moments' notice anymore, Reverend. And your "tapestry of resistance" is looking a little threadbare.
Rev. Graylan Scott Hagler of the Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ said the rallies nationwide are a "tapestry of resistance."
"Most people believe we aren't crazy anymore," he said.
