Collection of Anti-Vax Rally Articles

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The response to the anti-vaccination rally has been great. Here’s a collection of them:

  • Jamie Bernstein posted her thoughts via the Friendly Atheist.
  • Orec pulled together a variety of links and posted one concise post, “Is the Anti-vaccine movement fizzling?” (including quotes from here. Thanks!)
  • PZ Myers responded with a yawnish, “How the hell does this movement have any legs?” tone. Maybe that’s not what he meant, but that’s how I read it. It’s here. He also linked here. Thanks!
  • The Skeptical Teacher posted here and here.
  • Photos from Skeptic Dave.
  • Autism News Beat declares the rally a fizzle.
  • A Brit calls it a damp squib.
  • Almost didn’t include my posts: Here. Here. Here.

If I’m missing some links, please drop them in the comments and I’ll update this post accordingly.

  1. Thanks for post. It was obvious that the organizers were expecting many hundreds more. Less than 200 were in the park, including skeptics, vendors, press and volunteer staff. The sign in sheet had 35 names.

    1. You’re welcome.

      Because I was walking about with a camera with a large lens, I was given a press pack.

      There’s a press release inside that says, “100s will rally in Grant Park.”

      They can’t blame attendance on weather. It was a gorgeous day!



    1. Thanks again for passing along information.

      BTW, for some reason, wordpress is funny about people leaving more than one link in comments. I’m not purposefully screening your comments. Usually people are free to post whatever they want.

      I just didn’t want you to feel like I was a moderating kind of blogger.
