Join Ilam Greens to 'Stand Up for Science' Christchurch! Bruce Tulloch of Ilam Greens will be there. Look for his Green banners and flags and help us carry them in this important parade for science and the earth.
We invite you (Scientists, Science students and Science supporters) to march from outside the Canterbury Museum, down Worcester Street, to Cathedral Square with us.
Once we arrive, there will be a few speakers and then we will disburse. The mission is to express to our community, our government and our world that we will protect Science and evidence-based research and facts.
We are also marching to support those who are being negatively effected by attacks on Science in the U.S and all over the world. We are marching to show that we support and value Science in our lives and that we will stand up to protect it.
This will be a peaceful march, we will not be focussing on how we don't all necessarily agree on everything each other stands for, but on what we do agree on: the importance of Science in our lives.
Please be aware that you may not agree with every message written on others' signs, but we don't have to all agree to stand united.
People from ALL industries, communities and departments of the Sciences are welcome - this is an inclusive march.
Children and families are more than welcome - this issue effects us all.
If you would like to volunteer for the March for Science in Christchurch, we'd love to hear from you. Whether you would like to volunteer to speak, sponsor, or help us with logistics (helping make sure the march is safetly carried out) - we need all the help we can get.
