That hoped-for protest against President Trump’s anti-science policies? It’s on. The newly-named March for Science is now slated to take place on April 22nd — appropriately, Earth Day — in both Washington, DC and satellite protests worldwide. The demonstrations will primarily voice opposition to gag orders, funding freezes and other White House attempts to censor climate change science, but it also represents a broader call for politicians to make decisions based on evidence, rather than ideology or corporate agendas.
If you’re interested, you can register for updates in your corner of the world. The protest’s financial sponsor, ScienceDebate.org, is also accepting donations to help fund the cause. Will people turn out in numbers large enough to compare to earlier protests? Not necessarily, but it’s clear that the March for Science is gathering momentum.
