Is a count of the protesters available?

There are estimated 8.4M people living in NYC. If they had less than 1% in peaceful protesters, they were inconveniencing many people on a work day to get this story out. They need to do better with their message to get that 1% out. That is how you get action.

A little bit of inconvenience is just that.

Imagine the inconvenience when climate change begins to affect the elite. Being late for a plane will be nothing compared to being too late for humanity.

I don't care about London. They can handle this their way. Nobody going to JFK or LaGuardia airports will be going through Times Square in NYC.

Get a permit. Have a protest. Grow a movement. Sing songs, get donations, get bills into legislatures, have an outdoor concert in central park, vote. Great. When you have 1% of the population willing to show up and disrupt local lives, protest when and where you like. Critical mass is needed, otherwise people just get mad.

Protesters in New York City brought traffic to a standstill in the city's busiest hub and an activist in London climbed atop a plane as climate change demonstrators entered the fourth day of rallies around the world.

These people, these protestors, are really, really, annoying, and I won't/can't hear anything they have to say while I'm stuck on the tarmac, or stuck in traffic.
