Among the two dozen official partners of the upcoming March for Science, a recent addition dwarfs the rest: The American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest general scientific organization.

The partnership represents a legitimacy boost for the march, planned for April 22 in Washington, D.C., with satellite marches in various other cities. But perhaps even more noteworthy, it marks a new level of political activism for AAAS, more generally known for publishing journals and sponsoring symposia than for staging political demonstrations.

  • POLICIES MADE TO USE MILITARY AS HUMAN STUDY SUBJECTS.
    I received the non-FDA approved anthrax vaccination at TAMC in Hawaii in 1998. I immediately experienced joint problems as well as severe gastrotestinal symptoms. This eventually led to my disability retirement as a forensic scientist. On January’s 19 of 2017, the policies for vaccinations were scheduled to change so there is absolutely no government accountability. Here are the changes made to utilizing military personnel for human trials. Disappointing.

    • I saw a documentary on this subject about Veterans receiving this Anthrax vaccines. I’m doing a documentary on the Hepatitis c drugs killing my community, causing cancers, Heart Problems and aneurisms, bone loss, that effect teeth, RA and other autoimmune disorders. The CDC pushed through the Sofosbuvir and now they are going to give it to children and to Zika patients because the Drs think is safe but after 3 years now that our community has used the Sofosbuvir in Sovaldi and Harvoni, our community are dying and I’ve lost 10 friends on Facebook. We have private group and we are seeing the horrible effects these Drugs have on our community. It’s a crime!
