I don't know if 20 is the right number or perhaps there should be different numbers for vocal protests as opposed to silent ones. It does seem to make sense that there is some procedure for certification of groups of some number so proper security and fire protection/exits can be in place.
Or should it just be a free for all?
Free for all worked for tens of thousands of protesters showing up.
Ironically, if 400 nazis showed up unannounced, the impact would probably be minimal. If they wanted their march to be greeted with anything but a yawn, they'd have to announce it, in which case the police could prepare.
