MARCH FOR SCIENCE

LAUNCESTON, TAS, AUSTRALIA | 22 APRIL, 2017
Why we march
TAKE A STAND FOR SCIENCE IN POLITICS

Science, not silence

A global event bringing together people from all walks of life who believe we need more evidence and reason in our political process.

The March for Science celebrates the public discovery, distribution, and understanding of scientific knowledge as crucial to the freedom, success, health, and safety of life on this planet.

We are a nonpartisan group, marching to demand action in the following areas: Literacy, Communication, Policy, and Investment.

Science belongs to everyone. It should be pursued for the benefit of all people and for the health of the environment we depend upon.

The March for Science Launceston acknowledges that we are meeting here on Aboriginal land. (Supplied by the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre.)

We recognise that science and scientific pursuits have been used in the past to disenfranchise many minority groups. We are committed to the promotion of science, now and in the future, as an endeavour which all persons have the right to pursue and enjoy the fruits of, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion or lack thereof, political affiliation, or socioeconomic status.

Diversity has strengthened and enriched scientific inquiry, and the inclusion of all peoples and the promotion of equal opportunity and training within science should be a goal pursued by scientists and non-scientists alike.
