March For Science Campaign: Demonstration Will Be Held On Earth Day 2017
The March for Science campaign is set to be held on the Earth Day 2017. Although the campaign was formed just a week ago. The campaign had drawn the attention of more than 1.3 million supporters across Facebook and Twitter. It aims to voice out the concerns of people who are anxious about the future of science under President Trump's administration.
The campaign was inspired by the women’s march held last month. The campaign has scheduled its demonstration in Washington for Earth Day 2017. Earth Day 2017 is on April 22. Lead organizer of the march, Jonathan Berman said that this campaign indeed is a protest, but denies that it is a political protest. The people making decisions are in Washington. The aim is to let these people hear the message of the people concerned about Science, “You should listen to evidence.”
Last week, Dr. Berman, proceeded to buy a web domain, design a logo and create a Twitter account for what was then called The Scientists’ March on Washington. Within three days the idea had more than 700,000 across the social media. Other collaborators quickly joined Dr. Berman’s efforts. One of them is, Dr. Caroline Weinberg, a public health researcher and science writer in New York. She was concerned about the current news circulating around about science at the Environmental Protection Agency.
According to the New York Times, Dr. Weinberg said that is heartwarming that so many people were concerned about Science. Those people are willing to exert effort and donate time for the March for Science campaign. However, organizers of the march might encounter problems.
According to CNN, a campaign that started in the social media, an idea spread across Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter. Gathered a following of hundreds of thousands online. Organizers are hoping that the March for Science campaign would be a success.
