More than a million were there; maybe even 2. Marching from 7Tir to Ahmad Abaad and back.

On a different note, on our way back around 11 pm, there were at least 200 Basiiji's in Ghettary-e neighborhood with sticks and helmet. We saw 4 mini-buses and one bus plus many toyota vans filled with Biz. Other neighborhoods in crisis that I am aware of are Tehranpars, shahrak-e gharb, saa'dat aabad, mohseni Sq. There are check-points here and there, one in Nyavaroon st.
