It's been widely reported in the Western news that e.g. "Romanian diaspora’s anti-government protest turns violent":

A major anti-government protest held in Bucharest by Romanians living abroad turned violent Friday, with at least 250 people requiring medical care, local media reported.

Romanians drove for days from countries including England, Italy and Switzerland to protest against the policies of the ruling Social Democratic Party (PSD) [...]

Between 80,000 and 100,000 people gathered in front of the government building in Victoria Square, according to Romanian media.

That doesn't quite say how many of these protesters were actually from the diaspora. Is it really the case that a substantial enough number (e.g. a majority of these ~100k) were actually from the diaspora to make the headlines talking of the "diaspora’s protest" justified?
