Scientists worldwide took to the streets Saturday along with students, research advocates and celebrities to push back against what they say are mounting attacks on science – including research budget cuts by Donald Trump.

The March for Science, coinciding with Earth Day, was anchored in Washington and set to be mirrored in 500 other cities, and attracted celebrities including Bill Nye the Science Guy and Doctor Who actor Peter Capaldi.

Although officially non-partisan, it was dreamed up at the Women’s March on Washington, which took place a day after Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 21 – and signs across the world made it clear that his cuts on science were a cause of some ire.

The sign that nine-year-old Sam Klimas held at the DC rally was red, handmade and personal: ‘Science saved my life.’ He had a form of brain cancer and has been healthy for eight years now.

His mother, grandmother and brother traveled with him from Parkersburg, West Virginia. ‘I have to do everything I can to oppose the policies of this administration,’ said his grandmother, Susan Sharp.
