March for sci­ence planned for April 22

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Hamilton sci­en­tists and sci­ence ad­vo­cates are plan­ning a sol­i­dar­ity march to co­in­cide with an up­com­ing demon­stra­tion in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. for the same cause.

Dis­mayed by “re­cent rhetoric,” Amer­i­can sci­en­tists plan to march on Wash­ing­ton and cities across the United States.

The Wash­ing­ton D.C. group’s twit­ter ac­count @ScienceMarchDC, ac­ti­vated Jan. 23, now has close to 300,000 fol­low­ers.

Lo­cal or­ga­nizer Court­ney Shep­pard says the Hamilton group, @SciMarchHamOnt, is “in com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the cen­tral or­ga­niz­ing team.”

The Hamilton group an­nounced Tues­day that the date for the lo­cal march will be April 22.
