Organizers said Saturday that an estimated 750,000 people turned out to downtown Los Angeles for the national Women’s March, many more than expected.
A Facebook page for the event showed 93,000 indicating they would attend, but organizers said some 750,000 people showed up, according to a local Los Angeles NBC affiliate.

Marches are taking place across the country, with some of the largest demonstrations taking place in Washington, D.C., Chicago and Los Angeles.
Parade routes had to be altered in D.C. and Chicago after more people showed up than expected and the demonstrations became a safety issue.
And remember, approximately 250,000 attended Donald Trump’s inauguration.
