*Police* estimate: "At least 20,000"!

Police and corporate media estimate at least 20,000 at today's demo.
From an article on Oregonlive.com:

"Police pegged the number of demonstrators at "at least" 20,000, making it the one of the largest peace rallies ever in the city, far above the 12,000 who turned out to protest the Persian Gulf War in January of 1991."

... and that's the cops and mainstream media here, whose estimates are usually on the low side!
