That's 6,986,100 worldwide, or about the scope of 139,722 pro-war ralleys, and this does ignore many smaller scale marches occurring in smaller cities around the world, I know my parents did something of the sort in Flagstaff.

Damn, I hate being in the minority like that.

Numbers from Body and Soul who got the numbers from Atrios' comment page. Damn you Atrios, and your superior blog! I cannot escape.

Update: My Mom reports from the frontlines that 1500 people marched in Flagstaff, which encompasses maybe a fortieth of the population. So make the worldwide tally 6,987,600, or 140,022 pro-war ralleys. If anyone else has any info on ralleys and marches that occurred on Saturday,
