March for Science on 4.22.17

This Saturday, April 22nd, protests continue as scientists (and science enthusiasts like myself) from all sorts of backgrounds, professions, and walks of life, come together to March for Science. This march starts at the National Mall of Washington D.C. and is, appropriately, taking place on Earth day. 🌳

While this march is made up of regular people embarking on a journey to spread awareness of science’s accomplishments, it’s also important in terms of our current political office. It is the reason why it’s happening! The Trump administration is challenging & ignoring that environmental policy is critical. Their upcoming federal budget cuts completely debilitate the EPA and their potential as our environmental protectors. These same people (the Dump admin.) are completely ignoring scientific evidence for the sole purpose of creating short term profit.

Avoiding to take care of our environment is also avoiding the earth that nourishes us as people, nourishes our plant-based foods, and animal counterparts. Marching for Science supports the scientific community and all of their findings. It shows this political office that we’re aware of the bullshit profit for short-term benefits! (For example: Dakota Access Pipeline) Empower & teach our youth to think for themselves… this world is ours to save from monsters driven by money.

March with Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (3.10.17)

On Friday, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe will march from the Mall at Washington D.C. to the White House starting at 10am. This march is requesting that President Donald Trump meets with its tribal leaders to speak on respecting the rights of indigenous peoples but also the environment as a whole. This is an ongoing issue as the Trump administration continues to completely dismantle certain government operations that took far longer to get into executing in the first place.

Once upon a time I had studied as an Environmental Policy major and I found it really interesting that corporations had to produce Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) to determine whether or not large scale decisions were environmentally sound. Trump’s decisions, although not obviously funded by corporations, is nonetheless and should be treated as such too. Creating a government that doesn’t respect the environment is not one that reflects the people.

It’s a shame how far greed can take people in power to avoid the needs of a planet that has only sustained them too.

Please visit this link, read about it, and spread this information about the March at Washington D.C. with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe by clicking the link or image above. I stand with Standing Rock. I respect indigenous peoples. Most of all, I respect our earth. #WaterIsLife ✊🏽
