Sorry - you are wrong
 
We have finished counting up the people who registered, and there were over 2000 people that attended.

This, of course, doesn't include our great immigration voice friends Greg Siskind and Sheela Murthy. Who both walked with us side by side.

The post rally speeches were filled by CNN, covered by Washington Post and many other news organizations.

Congressmen even gave speeches

Don't spread disinformation, hater!

You quite obviously weren't there

Yes, there were over 2000 present. Rally was VERY successful!
 
I just came back from the rally to Dallas and yes, there were over 2000 people. It was a very successful event and the positive energy was amazing! We come from many different places and are from different disciplines, but we share a common heart. A heart that beats for America, and we will not let that heart stop beating! The only option is victory now! We are well on our way, together!!!!

Very few people attended, not covered much in any news channel except 2 (Business week and roll call are paid ones with volunteers contribution)
Finally it is a Total Diaster rally due to lack of partcipation from members.The members attended is around 400 to 500.

People may start jumping on me, but friends it is the mere fact and reality.
If somebody can not accept reality, it is their issue.

Registered = >2000 plus other joined later

>2000 people registered at the Washington Monument and then many more joined while we were marching, maybe we peaked at 3000, but it's 2000+ confirmed

Hey ArunAntonio! Nice to see you! Yes, you wouldn't believe how positive the rally was! Passers-by stopped to compliment us, help and encourage us, cars honked at us in approval. Everyone was so energyzed! Big group, 100+ meetings with congressmen, including Hillary Clinton, children came, we all bonded in one single voice and message. Logiclife and Aman gave awesome speeches, this is just the beginning! Today it was confirmed to me HOW MUCH we can do TOGETHER!!! It's proven and not just words!!! FEW PEOPLE REALIZE HOW STRONG WE ARE TOGETHER AND HOW RESPECTED IV IS, THANKS TO EVERYONE'S EFFORTS!!!
