Ecuador | 5:05 PM EDT A small but determined South American march Geologist Paul Baker who is working in Ecuador at Yachay Tech University emailed our Mexico City correspondent Lizzie Wade about one of the smaller marches today: “The March was great We had probably 250 people so perhaps a quarter of all of our students at the university We gathered on campus and then walked the 3 km uphill to the plaza of Urcuqui We even had an angry man pull his truck in front of us blocking the way but we just walked around and kept going There were few people along the way because we are in a very small community but we think it was important for the community to see us and to hear from us about what we do at Yachay Tech and what motivates our students On the plaza the mayor spoke briefly as did various students from Yachay Local high school students also attended (perhaps 60 or so) [and] a couple random people from Urcuqui spoke…I think it was the only March for Science in Ecuador" Attend a

generational divide in Mexico Hours before the March for Science here kicked off representatives from the Mexican Academies of Sciences Engineering and Medicine gathered for a roundtable to express their support for the global movement—though some tensions with the local march were clear "We’re in a critical moment for defending science around the world and in our country" said José-Antonio Arias-Montao of the Mexican National Academy of Medicine Several speakers expressed concern about US President Donald Trump’s denial of climate change Vice President Mike Pence’s creationist beliefs and Trump’s willingness to work with prominent antivaccine activist Robert Kennedy Jr "In the face of fanaticism and fear science is regaining its ethical and political stance" said Rosaura Ruiz Guitiérrez director of the Faculty of Science at the National Autonomous University of Mexico here The Mexican government must improve its support of science she said By law 1% of the country’s GDP must go toward research and development "But like many laws in our country this one isn’t being followed" Ruiz Guitiérrez said The number of government grants given to graduate students is also declining as Mexico faces an economic crisis and a weak peso Still it remained unclear how many of the senior scientists in the Academies would take to the streets later today for the march is organized in large part by graduate students Ruiz Gutiérrez called the event "the young people’s march" and said among more established scientists "marching hasn’t been our style"—though she believes that may change thanks to the example set by US scientists today She will be marching in an individual capacity she said –Lizzie Wade Mexico city roundtable Lizzie Wade Ny-lesund Svalbard Norway | 4:20 PM EDT Striding across the Norwegian Arctic drums at the ready Save for a trio of researchers who made their North Pole trek double as a march for science the honor of the farthest north march today was held by the small Norwegian research village: Ny-lesund on the island of Svalbard in the Arctic Ocean Some 11 nations staff small research stations there with the population swelling to up to 150 scientists and support staff during the busiest months Currently however there are just about 80 souls in town glaciologist Alex Messerli of the Norwegian Polar Institute told Science today by phone But a full half of them turned out for the March for Science “on this beautiful beautiful day” she says “We made lots of signs and had a banner at the front We had some drums and brass instruments to help us along There is no general public here so we were marching on our own and the bit of noise helped keep us going” The route was very short but “very scenic” she says “We went from the main service building at the center of the village where we have our meals thru town and then back” through the spectacular snow-covered landscape The group was diverse she noted representing numerous nations and fields of science “It really made sense for us to march” says Messerli who coordinated the event “because science at the end of the day is for everyone” –David Malakoff Alex Messerli BONN GERMANY | 4:10 pm EDT Closing thoughts from Bonn The science march in Bonn ended earlier today Police estimated the crowd at 850 There was some grumbling that organizers could have done more to increase turnout but most protesters agreed that the bad weather and the other protests scheduled for the weekend were to blame Kai Huntter a microbiology student at the University of Düsseldorf carrying a "vaccines work" sign said he had hoped for more particpants "But I’m not disappointed It’s a start" While there was no marching here protesters were entertained by a jazz band and scientific improvisation theater Many people here carried signs including one saying "homeopathy can be healed" a crowd favorite Catrin Muscheid 29 said she had no background in science but she had come from Cologne to support science and that she was thinking of children like her 7-year-old nephew and the world they would inherit "I want them to be able to enjoy nature the way that we have been able to" –Kai Kupferschmidt Kai Kupferschmidt San Diego California | 3:35 PM EDT “People are really reaching out" It’s a sunny day not a cloud is in the sky and the organizers of the March for Science in San Diego are hoping that not a negative word will be heard Helen Wilfehrt a neurobiologist who is self-employed has arrived early to spread the good vibe "I wouldn’t be here without science—literally" says Wilfehrt wearing the local march shirt that features a woman surfing through an atom "I was hospitalized within one month of birth with pneumonia" Another participant Savannah

Guy speaks out Bill Nye cycled to his first DC Earth Day more than 40 years ago and locked his bike to one of the National Mall flagpoles ("If you did that today you’d be disappeared and your bike would be taken away to be x-rayed" he jokes) Now on Earth Day 2017 he took the stage to cheers and chants of "Bill Bill Bill" from thousands of March for Science participants For Nye who just last night launched a new Netflix series called Bill Nye Saves the World focused largely on climate change a successful march would lead to "a stop to efforts to curtail environmental regulations" and for the nation to "start pursuing renewable energy earnestly" In a conversation with ScienceInsider Nye criticize President Donald Trump for "subdued" interactions with the public on issues like science and the environment noting no one could tell him where Trump is today as science supporters march in cities around the world "The unpopularity of this administration will catch up with them" he said "Look at all these people" –Lindzi Wessel Lindzi Wessel London | 2:45 pm EDT “I thought we all respected science” There was a slight drizzle before the start of the March for Science—London just enough that one participant rigged an umbrella above his sign There was a sense of anticipation “We have to leave the lab and show people why our work is important” said Eva Zacharioudaki a postdoc in developmental biology at the University of Cambridge “We don’t have to go back to a time of darkness” Thousands of marchers milled about in the street in front of the Science Museum “They’re a rather quiet bunch very polite” said a police officer who was not authorized to speak to the media “I’ve never seen a march start at the Science Museum before I guess they all know where it is” Many marchers hailed from London with a sizable contingent from Cambridge and some making a trip of several hours Organizers estimated the crowd at 10000 to 12000 For about a mile as the march passed along Hyde Park not many people were watching but the marchers cheered as open-top tourist buses passed by and black cabs honked Along Piccadilly toward Trafalgar Square spectators were slightly baffled “What’s the point of the march” asked Patrick Gleeson an accountant As if to answer a chant arose in the march “Respect for science” Gleeson looked puzzled “I thought we all respected science” he said to his wife Several participants said they were marching in support of researchers in the United States and other countries where they say science gets less respect “This is like a solidarity march” said Steve Canham who works in IT for clinical research at a university in Surrey “It’s easier to keep fighting if you know others are supporting you” added cancer biologist Isabel Quiros Gonzalez who works at the University of Cambridge She’s concerned about antivaccination groups and people “who doubt our work and our honesty” Erik Stokstad Paul Bradbury a banker stopped to watch some of the march and approved “Science is definitely helping us especially people with disease” Also taking it in was Janice Alexander a graphics designer who liked the signs and the fact that the mood was calm “If they’re saying science is important and we should believe in it then this is an appropriate way to show it We’re British; we like something orderly” Once the march reached Parliament Square speaker Andrew Steele of the advocacy group Science is Vital tried to turn up the heat “As scientists we don’t like anger we like evidence” he said “But let’s talk about funding” The amount invested in the United Kingdom as a share of GDP was much lower in than the United States and Germany he pointed out And then there’s Brexit: government has not reassured European Union citizens that they will be able to stay after the UK breaks away “That’s not good enough” Steele said his voice rising “I want you to help me make science a massive political issue” Brexit was on the mind of many because it could severely hinder the ability of European scientists to work in the UK Francisco Diego an astronomer at University College London reminded the crowd that science has shown all humans trace their origins back to Africa “How did we populate the planet By migration” he said to cheers The Palace of Westminster where Parliament meets was turning golden in the afternoon sunlight “Say it loud so they can hear” The need to reach out to the public was emphasized by many speakers “Each of you—tell someone not at the march why you came here” said Suze Kundu a materials chemist at the University of Surrey Sounding the single note of criticism science journalist Angela Saini exhorted the scientific community to do a better job addressing sexism and racism in its own ranks Closing out the rally was Robin Ince a comedian who mused on the inspirational in science “It’s about coming up with the least wrong answer That’s what’s great—it never ends There’s no child here who will ever hear the words ‘that’s science finished’” Organizers are hoping the same is true for the March for Science—London Story Sylwester a graduate student in paleopathology at Durham University told ScienceInsider that she would like it to become March for Science—UK with a continuing presence advocating for research –Erik Stokstad You guys This turnout Thank you so much for coming and being a part of something

nearly over Science reporters covering a number of the events assembled for an online chat to compare and contrast what they saw and heard The group included Gretchen Vogel who covered the march in Berlin; Kai Kupferschmidt (Bonn); Daniel Clery (London); and Martin Enserink (Paris) The chat was moderated and edited for brevity and clarity by David Malakoff based in Washington DC David Malakoff: What was the mood out there today Gretchen Vogel: Berlin’s march was quieter than I expected There were drummers at the start but the marching itself was mostly quiet with people chatting with each other but not chanting There were some whistles and boos in front of the Hungarian embassy (because of the Hungarian government’s efforts to shutter the Central European University) David: I was struck by the song sung at the end of the Berlin march Was that spontaneous Gretchen: It was quite moving The stage at the end had a choir from one of the universities The choir director led the crowd They hummed first then sang in unison then in harmony Martin Enserink: There was some singing at the March in Paris as well but overall people were quiet Daniel Clery: The London march was very jolly and good humored All ages present and at least two species (dogs too) The speeches at the end were generally humorous and comedian Robin Ince led the singing of The Meaning of Life (from the Monty Python musical) Kai Kupferschmidt: In Bonn it was fairly subdued The rain didn’t help You could sense people felt this was something they just had to do And several people told me they couldn’t quite believe that it had come to this standing up for facts for science The site the Hofgartenwiese hosted one of the biggest freedom demonstrations in German history with more than 300000 people attending By comparison the less than 1000 at the science march felt tiny Dan: The London march went right through the heart of the city past many major monuments It was I may add significantly longer than the anti-Brexit march of a few weeks ago Gretchen: In Berlin the weather was what Germans call “April weather” It sleeted all morning but the sun came out for the march Then afterwards it started raining again Martin: I did wonder what bystanders in Paris made of the march I don’t know if the message was very clear Scientists make very clever banners and signs but they tend to be rather small and aimed at making other scientists chuckle . I doubt that the waiters watching from their terraces got it Gretchen: There were lots of questions in the S-Bahn and on the street about signs people were carrying Everyone was very positive One waiter said “So the march is FOR something rather than against something That’s nice for once” Dan: Yes I got that comment too for rather than against David: The election of President Donald Trump played a big role in catalyzing the marches in the US Did Trump loom large in Europe Martin: Trump played a big role in Paris He came up in almost every speech I think European scientists are truly appalled And of course global warming is a big issue This is Paris of the Paris accords Dan: Yes lots of anti-Trump placards in London too Kai: There were anti-Trump signs in Bonn Several people had signs saying "grab them by the data" also an indirect reference of course But concerns went far beyond that: Turkey Hungary anti-vaxxers climate change Martin: Yes I agree that the issues go well beyond Trump That’s the interesting thing about these marches: everybody can project their local concerns on them Some scientists here in France don’t like merit-based funding … Not just that there isn’t enough of it; some just don’t like the whole concept Gretchen: I didn’t see any explicitly anti-Trump signs in Berlin though plenty against alternative facts Kai: Inevitably the Nazi era came up in almost every speech here There’s a strong feeling that Germany has an obligation to call out worrying developments like freedom being curtailed scientists being muzzled Gretchen: Germany’s past came up in Berlin too They also emphasized standing in solidarity with and doing what’s possible to help scientists under extreme pressure—in Turkey Hungary and various war zones David: Do you get the sense anything lasting will come of this Or did it feel like a one-time thing Martin: This is France so there will undoubtedly be another march; scientists have taken to the streets so many times What happens next will depend a great deal on the next government (Tomorrow we’ll know a little more about that) But I thought it was interesting that this was the first scientists’ march that had a global feel about it You could tell from the speeches and the placards In that sense this may well be the start of something new Also notable: at the endpoint here at Place St Michel a poem was read in English Kai: People in Bonn were definitely willing to do more but I think most of them don’t know what and how The whole affair could have been better organized (considering how many universities are involved – Bonn Cologne Aachen Düsseldorf and more—turnout should have been bigger) So I have little hope for this leading to anything concrete in the future On the other hand that might be the takeaway for some participants here: the need to organize to build up structures Martin: Labor unions were also very visible at the Paris march Dan: London also had an international feel and a very international group of marchers There was very little comment here about the upcoming general election Gretchen: The most visible groups in Berlin were science and academic ones No labor unions or political parties that I saw Martin: One other thing that struck me: Marchers like to claim credit for all of the good things science has brought—from beer and antibiotics to air travel but never any of the bad stuff Saying that science is the answer to everything seems a bit nave Thoughts Gretchen: There was one sign in Berlin that said “sorry for the atom bomb” Kai: Protesting is already a bit weird for most scientists and in general I felt the sentiments were very restrained David: Did you see signs on more controversial scientific topics as well such as genetically modified organisms (GMOs) Kai: I saw one on GMOs but most people stuck to the “safe” topics Martin: I did see mostly “safe” issues as well Nobody in defense of genetically modified organisms for instance which in France are extremely unpopular I did see some stridently atheist signs David: Well it’s been a long day for you Thanks for the insights WASHINGTON DC | 2:00 PM EDT Alchemists for Trump Science historian Amy Slaton from Drexel University in Philadelphia took brief refuge from the rain in Washington DC’s Ronald Reagan Building She wanted a sign that was anti-Trump but not necessarily pro-science: "I think it’s a little dangerous to say that anywhere you see a scientist you see good thinking and objective thinking and fair thinking" she says "Usually it’s in the hands of the wealthy the privileged people who already have a lot of success in the world" Today’s crowd she notes is "real white" –Kelly Servick Kelly Servick PORTLAND OREGON | 1:19 pm EDT Portland marchers brave the rain for science Seems appropriate that marchers in Portland start the day huddled under the Morrison Bridge as the rain comes down Speeches here set to begin in 15 minutes –Robert F Service Robert F Service Ice ice science Yes we even have scientists marching at the North Pole!
