The Malaysian Academics Movement (MOVE) joins in celebrating the ‘March for Science’. We regret not being able to join our comrades in the World Wide March for Science on 22 April 2017.
However, we do fully support the mission, principles and goals of the March for Science. There must be a greater appreciation of the role that science plays in our lives. Research producing insight into our world should be encouraged. Policies which restrict research must be dropped. We do not want a future where the need for scientific evidence is not required and is ignored. Evidence of these unfortunate tendencies can be seen in the current era of post-truth, alternative truth and safe space.
Good luck brothers and sisters in the march today. Be safe.
