The figures range from 340,000 to 800,000 or even 1 million demonstrators for this Sunday, January 13th. It would be the most important mobilization on a social project since 1984 for the free school.
How is the demonstrators counted?
Police headquarters: two civil servants are situated on each side of the march. They press a manual counter each ten people. They multiply the number by 10 at the end. The
margin of error would be 10%.
Trade unions: a trade unionist also presses a manual counter for each line of people. Are considered about.
20, 25 people per line, so the number in the manual counter is multiplied by about 20, 25 at each click.
In this case the counting was done at the level of the pont de l’Alma.
