The NY Times noted:
Thousands of scientists and their supporters, feeling increasingly threatened by the policies of President Trump, gathered Saturday in Washington under rainy skies for what they called the March for Science, abandoning a tradition of keeping the sciences out of politics and calling on the public to stand up for scientific enterprise...Their resolve deepened, they said, when the president appointed cabinet members who seemed hostile to the sciences. He also proposed a budget with severe cuts for agencies like the National Institutes of Health -- which would lose 18 percent of their funding in his blueprint -- and the Environmental Protection Agency, which faces a 31 percent budget cut and the elimination of a quarter of the agency's 15,000 employees.
Clever signs included "Keep your tiny hands off my science" and a raincoat emblazoned with: "I KNEW TO WEAR THIS BECAUSE SCIENCE PREDICTED RAIN."
