In hundreds of cities around the world held marches in defense of science
Moscow. April 22. INTERFAX.RU Thousands of scientists took to the streets of hundreds of cities around the world in protest against what they viewed as a political attack on scientific facts.
As marks “Bi-bi-si”, the action coincided with the Earth Day, which aims to draw attention to environmental issues.
The Central event will be held later in Washington. The organizers insist that it is not directed against the President of the United States Donald trump, but his actions indirectly influenced the decision to hold a March.
As recalled by “bi-Bi-si”, trump has previously described the issue of climate change fiction and his views caused concern in the scientific community.
