negative sentiments about the anti-science movement said its organizer Julie Kohn of Cornell University a visiting PhD student at the University of Cape Town Every person on the march received free entry into the science center which aims to improve the quality of science literacy among young South Africans Scientists also marched in the east coast city of Durban this morning At the forefront walked veterans of South Africa’s era of AIDS denialism: Glenda Gray Jerry Coovadia and Quarraisha Abdool Karim among others who stood up for science in the late 1990s and early 2000s when the

EDT In Paris a march sandwiched between a terror attack and presidential elections The March for Science in Paris will start in less than an hour at the Jardin des Plantes a botanical garden from where it will make its way past a series of research landmarks on the Left Bank to finish at the Place St Michel It’s one of two dozen events today in France and its overseas territories The French march often to express their political views and scientists are no exception; lab coats have flooded the streets and squares of Paris and other cities many times the past decade to protest lagging funding a lack of permanent jobs or proposed reforms to the academic system The organizers of today’s march say in a statement that the event is partly about Donald Trump’s “hostile ideology” with respect to science but also about threats in France including politicians’ focus on “innovation and the knowledge economy” How many people show up today is anyone’s guess It’s an extraordinary time in France and Paris is on edge Tomorrow is the first round of what could be the most consequential presidential electon in half a century; right-wing nationalist Marine Le Pen of the National Front abhorred by most French academics is expected to proceed to the 7 May run-off easily (Here’s a Science news story about the race) And this past Thursday a gunman attacked a police bus on the Champs Elysées a famous shopping boulevard here killing a policeman (The shooter a radicalized Frenchman with a violent and criminal past was also killed) Several of the main presidential candidates canceled their campaign appearances yesterday The French in other words have many other things to worry about besides the future of science which could put a damper on today’s event On the other hand it could also motivate people to come out and express their trust in science and reason It will be interesting to what extent the presidential race—in which science has been notably absent—plays a role in the march –Martin Enserink Marchers in Paris will pass the famous Collège de France this afternoon College de France/Wikimedia CAMBRIDGE UK | 5:15 am EDT London calling Science’s Erik Stokstad is heading
