Bloemfontein, capital of the Free State, saw a reported half a million people arrive for the event. People were parking up to 10km away and walking from there to the farm where the rally was held. Events such as these in the past have often only attracted white Afrikaner men, due mostly to the organisers having links to the apartheid past. But this event saw more black people and whole families attending.
