How many thousands? I’ve read that 800,000 were officially estimated to have marched, while organizers claimed a turnout as high as 1.3 million. This Reuters piece claims that 17,000 marched; and—crucially—that the far-right presence was “small.” (Look for this protest to be dismissed by “our free press” as a neo-Nazi gathering, like anti-lockdown protests in the US.)
In any case, this is an encouraging development, in a land whose history has taught them to beware blind obedience to the government out of fear and anger.
