Twin Bay Area "sister marches" on Saturday, in solidarity with the massive Women's March on Washington in protest of Donald Trump's inauguration, look to have been about equal in size in both San Francisco and Oakland, with Oakland's occurring earlier in the day, and with less rain.
As KRON 4 reports, Oakland police put the crowd there at about 100,000, though an earlier publicized estimate had it at 60,000. Marchers filled much of the two-mile parade route from Lake Merritt down Grand Avenue to Broadway and Frank Ogawa Plaza. And "There were so many people that an I-880 off-ramp was closed and BART experienced delays, but overall the march was peaceful."
Later in the day, the San Francisco march drew an estimated 100,000 attendees, making it the single biggest demonstration in over a decade, since a 2003 anti-war march.
