In the spirit of this weekend’s March for Science in Washington, D.C., over 600 satellites marches in cities such as London, Sydney, Berlin and even Birmingham, Alabama, took place to advance the same cause.

“It might have been ignited by Trump, but it’s not about Trump,” the march’s honorary co-chair Lydia Villa-Komaroff  told CNN. “It’s about the importance of science in society and continuing the support for the science community in keeping our edge.”

Signs held by scientists attending the march around the world expressed frustration at lawmakers for not creating policy based on the evidence they believe science provides.

The march also follows President Trump’s budget, released in March, which detailed a $54 billion in cuts, which included scaling back agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services and the National Institute of Health.

With the march now over, the March of Science website now states that “a movement in motion stays in motion.” The website details a week of planned activities that will continue in pursuit of making science a larger part of society and government.
