Houston Protest Rally Draws Big Numbers

According to the Revolutionary Worker Online, the online mouthpiece of the American Revolutionary Communist Party, last Saturday marked the tenth anniversary of...
...the National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. In cities across the country people marched and rallied to say "No more" to police murder and brutality.
You would expect such a momentous occasion to be met with large crowds of disenchanted citizens in this, the nation's fourth largest city. And you would be right. According to Peter, commenter at the Lone Star Times:
Extremely reliable sources put the turnout at two. Yes, you read that correct. In a city with a population of more than 4 million, the sponsor (Revolutionary Communist Party) was able to muster a turnout of two. A far cry from last year's crowd of 50.

I wonder what the [Houston] Chronicle reported as the turnout?

Nary a word from the Houston Barnicle. (The reporter assigned to this newsworthy event must have been too busy participating in the affair.)
