Protesters Call On Obama To Reject Keystone XL Pipeline : NPR
Organizers say it was the biggest climate rally ever in the United States. They claim about 35,000 people participated — although there was no independent crowd count.

The crowd did stretch for several blocks [Wouldn't an actual crowd of 35,000 stretch for more than "several" blocks?] as it made its way around the White House. Despite a cold wind and snow flurries, parents brought along young children.

Is that really anywhere near 35,000 people?

Count the rows (by zooming in on the picture) and the ranks and this comes to about 3-4000 - which gibes with the 130 buses.
