[Marxism] numbers for March 19

I've compiled a very incomplete list of figures for the March 19 
demonstrations around the world. I've included high and low figures for 
each demo including a column dealing with other suggested numbers or 
bogus claims (such as 500 in Toronto or 10,000 in London). They can be 
compared to last year's M20 demos at 
http://www.geocities.com/iscarleton/resource/

If anyone could help fill out the chart, please email me at 
djnesbit[at]connect.carleton.ca.

Cheers,
Doug Nesbitt
