Organisers of a march in Samoa against changing the side of the road motorists drive on says historic numbers took part in the protest this morning.

Estimates put the numbers as high as 10,000.

The lawyer who organised the march, Tole'afoa Solomona To'ailoa, said during the protest that the turnout should send a message to those in power:

"Well I hope they are listening because with the number of people we have here today, I think this is the biggest march ever in the history of the country so I'm sure they will be bound to listen."
