I'm posting this on Global Voices as well. One comment: 6,000-7,000 doesn't seem like a lot, unfortunately. Either this guy lipski isn't right - or the Channel 5 guy is being overly emotional. If only there existed a reliable way to do such estimates... Or, if only these numbers didn't matter to those who are not there, not with the crowd...

LJ user lipski reports (RUS) from Oktyabrskaya Sq. in Minsk for the second night in a row: weather's good; the square's not blocked; politically active young people decided not to set up a 'tent city' because officials have allegedly confiscated 1,500 tents, but there are plans to put up their own tents, tomorrow or the day after; many flags, including Ukrainian and the EU; many journalists; cars are honking in solidarity; sound is good today - lipski stands across the square from the stage and hears everything; 6,000-7,000 people and this is probably it; tried to put up a tent, but two cops came up and took it away.
