There are those who argue, quite reasonably, that the numbers do not really matter - the killing, maiming, starving and sickening of children, women, and men for the profit of a few white men, to prevent the embarrasment of the illegal Resident of the White House due to his own ill considered actions, or the global dominance of the United States, is immoral whether there is only one person saying it or billions.
Here is a comment from one Monpelier marcher:
"I heard that the official count was only 3,000 people at today's rally. Watching us all go by before I joined near the end, there were at least 4,000 who left from City Hall. I know others joined en route or at the State House. So my estimate is between 4,000 and 5,000. There were many more people at the State House than at our previous largest rally."
I was somwhere near the middle of the march from City Hall and I noticed people leaving the State House as I joined and they continued to leave thoughout - not surprising, it was only 12 F and the sun was so low it only provided glare.
Thetford - Lyme - we figured there was about 80 - 90% positive response. I was rather surprised and asked if that was a liberal area and the response was "far from it" tho Lyme may be somewhat. There were probaby at least 3 generations as well as the Dogs of Peace. At one point we almost could span the bridge holding hands. A log truck went thru and honked at the end (perhaps not wanting to blast us off the bridge) - I took it to be positive. Loggers for Peace!
Ledyard - There were twenty-two from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Upper Valley on the Ledyard Bridge.
Yesterday at the Ledyard Bridge 4-8th graders showed up with signs. They were there Monday and Tuesday too. It was very heartening to start to get youth there. They are all from Norwich and we got more honks and waves than ever before.
Walpole and Bellows Falls - Forty vigilers from both sides of the river (including at least a dozen from the Village Peace Assembly mailing list) were undaunted by wind-driven snow and frigid temperatures as they vigiled for an hour Monday, MLK day, on the (un-)arched bridge between Walpole and Bellows >Falls.
