Phoenix March for Science April 22, 2017

Along with thousands of other attendees, John and I were there.  The march began at 10:00 a.m. with a rally and public speakers in front of Historic City Hall. After the rally we marched; not only for science and the politics that surround it, but for the real role that science plays in our lives every day. It was estimated the attendance was about 8,000.

Many carried signs and the slogans were fantastic.

  • No science, no beer
  • I’d make a protest pun, but I’m no good atom
  • There is no Planet B (which became a chant during the march)
  • Have you hugged your Higgs boson today?
  • Got plague? Yeah, me neither. Thank a scientist.

Met some wonderful people and had a great time. We are proud that we were able to participate in a wonderful event.
