“Thousands of people gathered on the lawn of the Ohio State House Saturday morning to demonstrate for the importance of public policy that supports science.
Organizers for the Columbus March For Science — who estimated the attendance at around 4,000 people — held an hourlong rally in front of the Statehouse which was followed by a two-block march down High Street to Columbus Commons, where Earth Day events were planned for the afternoon. It was one of more than 600 marches taking place globally to express displeasure with public policies the movement sees as obstructive to scientific progress. The flagship march took place in Washington, D.C.”
