Cal Anderson, starting point for Seattle’s ongoing shows of resistance, hosts March for Science again Saturday

March For Science

Speaking of Seattle’s robust roster of free speech events, Cal Anderson Park will, again, be the center of the Emerald City’s resistance Saturday. This time, the scientists are back:

Seattle March for Science 2018

The 2018 Seattle March for Science starts Saturday morning in Cal Anderson with a march to Seattle Center slated to step off at 11:30 AM. Last year, more than 25,000 people marched, organizers say. “One year later, despite significant successes, science and evidence-based policy are experiencing an ever-increasing assault by the current administration,” they write.

While the city is sorting out how to better cover the cost of policing its major events including rallies and marches, there is also some concern among local merchants around Cal Anderson Park about the resources available to help out when huge crowds descend on the public space and fill Capitol Hill’s streets. The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce recently brought business representatives together with representatives from City Hall to talk more about the issue and what resources could be made available to help.
