After last weekend’s successful Women’s March on Washington and this week’s news of the Trump administration issuing gag orders to government scientists , a group of scientists have been moved to plan a march on DC to “take a stand for the responsible application of science in government”.
The march is currently still in the planning stages, with no set date, however nearly 400 000 members have joined the march’s Facebook group as of today. The march’s website states that “Anyone who values empirical science” is invited to participate. We look forward to seeing how this develops and strongly encourage scientists and science enthusiasts to get involved in fighting anti-science policy. Watch this website for future news on the march, and join the march’s Facebook group.
