You cant see much in the video but you can geta feel for the crowd size which is in the thousands and could be as high as 10,000.

Yesterday's demo and the consulate was inspiring: so many people, many of them children with their families. The authorities had no choice but to let us take the street! I should know better than to even consult the mainstream media... but I tuned in to KOFY's report once we finally made it home. The called us "anti-Israel," accused us of "mob-like" behavior (we were chanting), and interviewed a "Pro-Israel" woman who said that we had no idea about the historical context of the current bombing raids on Gaza....ridiculous.
