Turnout for Jena 6 Protests

21 09 2007

The Chicago Tribune reports:

Louisiana state police estimated that the crowd numbered between 15,000 and 20,000 people, but organizers said they believed there were at least twice that many demonstrators filling this two-stoplight town of 3,000.

Houston Chronicle said:

Event organizers put the attendance closer to 60,000, largely summoned by a campaign through black radio, Web sites, blogs and newspapers.
