Update: the police estimate the crowd at 15,000 and that the attendance is going down. Their explanation of how they calculate crowd attendance is pretty convincing. The tightest you can get a crowd is about 1-2 people per square meter; so you look at the area occupied by the crowd, calculate how many square meters that is, and determine if the crowd is moving, or so tightly packed that no one can move. Their calculations and observations indicate the crowd isn’t tightly packed. Jejomar Binay, of course, claims 60,000 people are there.
