13,000 on March in Glasgow on 6-11-21

Part of the AFFG Team in Glasgow on 6-11-21 to document an exact count of the march through the city centre.

Knowing the march routes in Glasgow, and knowing how long it takes to walk them, we knew that the figure of "100,000" was just insanity on stilts because "100,000" people walking from Kelvingrove Park, down West George Street, along the north of George Square, and out to the High Street and Glasgow Green would take hours and hours to pass any given point.

Using even the top estimate of 250 a
