You call it a mass. Or the masses. A mass is a mass, regardless of what it’s made of.
In physics, a mass is defined by the inertia (resistance) it opposes to anything trying to move it. The bigger the mass, the more inertia and more opposition to any change.
The most simple definition is mass is that which opposed to movement unless an external forces sufficiently is applied to it.
According to Newton’s Second Law of Motion (force equals mass times acceleration) a mass moves only and if only the amount of force applied to it is superior to its inertia.
This law also applies to the mass defined as a big group of people. To move the mass you need a lot of force.
If you don’t have the necessary force to move a big mass. Try to move smaller masses.
Physical force is the most effective. Emotional and intellectual forces are tools to get to physical force.

Just to say the African proverb ‘if you see a monkey swallowing a coconut it’s because she knows the size of her anus’.
Even a friend doesn’t peel a banana before giving to a friend. Kids as 2 years refuse that their mom banana for them.
