A gross overestimation by ncstoptorturenow.net

I was there. I did a rough count and it was about one third the number, maybe 125 or so, people that attended the protest in Smithfield on Saturday. According to the web site:
Nearly 350 peace, justice and human rights supporters gathered in the seat of Johnston County for a march and rally and at the headquarters of Aero Contractors in a memorial for victims and survivors of war and torture.
Nope...certainly NOT 350. There may have been 350 if you added all the counter protesters, bloggers, and police in attendance in the count.

Here is a video of the event as posted on their Google video account. You will not see 350 people in the march.
