Hong Kong Protests: How Many Took To The Streets On July 1? by Reuters
Reuters deployed its own teams to Hong Kong's July 1 march route to gather data on the number of protesters passing through. The project provided a new perspective on crowd size in the city.
The size of protesting crowds is a contentious issue in Hong Kong. The headcount is often treated as an indicator of popular sentiment, and can itself become a political struggle between protest organisers and government leaders.
