Do rallies and protests need to have a lot of people to be affective?

    I suppose it varies but as a rule of thumb, yes. Media coverage helps as well as blog buzz and large numbers helps things stick out. Forgetting for a second the fact that there is an intangible and untouchable force associated with crowds of large people trying to accomplish something or rallying behind something, there is certainly a power of looking over a sea of endless people. Crowds of people are more likely to impress passers-by and bystanders, so the more the merrier! A lot of times the media is able to fudge the numbers (like Fox News did with their 9/12 tea party protests) to make an event seem bigger than it is but more people certainly works better than less people.
