8,000 the estimate in Eureka, breaking the record for a Humboldt County demonstration established by the anti-Iraq invasion protest in 2003 which was estimated at 5,000.  Protest in Washington DC far outnumbered the body count of the inauguration.  3 to 4 million marched in nearly 400 cities across the country.  Demonstrations all over the world, including what may be the first ever protest in Antarctica.

I’ll put up some photos I took later on.  But the thing was huge!  It filled the streets from C Street to the Adorni.  Figuring out of county visitors, basically about 1 in 20 Humboldt County residents marched today, and that’s amazing!  I had thought about going to the Bay Area, but it was great to see so many friends in attendance.
