Protest

Protesters fill a park in Portland, Oregon, during the March for Science on Saturday, April 22. Crowds <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/22/health/global-march-for-science/" target="_blank">gathered in cities around the world</a> to support science and evidence-based research -- a protest partly fueled by opposition to President Donald Trump's threats of budget cuts to agencies that fund scientists' work.

Raise your voice,

take a stand

dream a better reality

 

Defy silence

It is cowards who hide behind it

Complicity lies within reticence

People are cowed by it,

disunited and powerless

 

Injustice is the oppressor’s strength

Counter it, speak out

for protest belongs to democracy

 

Disobey that which is unjust

Dream, stand up, speak out

 

For the emperor

is still naked

Expose him
