March for Science in Berlin with Democrats Abroad

Democrats Abroad Berlin will be participating in the March for Science in Berlin on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017. We support their mission statement and efforts to show support of science and scientific facts. We are standing up against those who denounce science. This should not be a partisan issue – science is a common good.

The march itself is from 1-4pm, we’ll be gathering at 12:30pm to walk together in front of the Berliner Dom in the Lustgarten.

Please join us on Saturday to support science and real facts! RSVP here or share this event on Facebook — and bring a friend to the march!

“Research and science represent the so-called ‘art of the soluble,’ help to build worlds that bestow mankind with freedom. We appeal to all citizens who appreciate the importance of science in a democracy. Take action against backward and populist ideologies. Do not believe simple explanations. This world is complicated – which is exactly what makes it beautiful.”

Science Marchers are getting together to make signs on April 20th: https://www.facebook.com/events/127597444445435/
