Some of the people attending this year's event were commenting that this seemed to be the biggest turnout yet!
Let's hope it works!

What a great lookin bunch of people and the pictures are fantastic. Although it may seem like a exercise in futility, I'm quite sure I will be there next time. Thanks for sharing it with us.

For those that weren't there or haven't seen this yet, the Springfield local station had a camera crew filming the marchers. Here's the link I found yesterday:

Good pics. You can find more pics on You Tube for 2010, 2011 and 2012. My first time this year, going again in 2013, don't want to miss out again.

I was interviewed, but it wasn't used.

If one were to listen to the news, they state hundreds of people supported I Gold. By the look of a couple pictures, it sure seemed like it was in the thousand range to me.

I've heard two different numbers. One is 6,500 the other 7,500. It's difficult how to figure out why a few hundred people receive all kinds of media attention. Over 6500 IGOLD demonstraters was mentioned on only one Chicago TV station in a 20 second item with not even one picture. Well, I guess it's not that hard to figure out. All the Chicago TV stations were called the 6th of March, and were informed of IGOLD.

Dave - the ISRA people were passing out copies of their quarterly newsletter to the attendees. I didn't get to look at it for a couple of days but it had a picture on the from from last year's rally with the caption estimating over 6,000 people there. During the march, I overheard several of the organizers talking about how this one may have been the biggest ever.
If you look at the pictures, the one marked "At the Lincoln Steps" you can see how many were already there. The next picture was taken looking back at how many were "Still Coming", taken about a minute later. The marchers were still stretched back 3-4 blocks! And this was a 6-lane (2 for parking) road!

Frizzyt, Yes I know, I was there. But when I GOLD has 6500 -7500 marchers and 15- 20 seconds on on TV, and some other cause with a few hundred gets all kinds of media coverage, something is not right.
