More than 200,000 people are expected to attend a demonstration against travel magazine Travelers Digest for publishing a story about the Ebola outbreak.
The protesters have planned the march and are scheduled to march for two hours from Washington, D.C., to the New York Stock Exchange, according to a Facebook event.
Protesters will meet at the National Mall on Saturday afternoon.
They will continue to march down Pennsylvania Avenue, chanting, “Stop this war on the people, stop this war against the people.”
Travelers magazine said the story was published because of the public health emergency in West Africa.
The story was written to reflect the growing awareness of Ebola as the virus spreads through the region.
It comes after several major travel and lifestyle publications and magazines including the Associated Press and Forbes were forced to retract stories and pull articles about the outbreak in recent days.
“We regret that this story was not produced in an effort to inform the public about the dangers of the Ebola epidemic,” the company said in a statement, according a copy of the letter obtained by AP.
“The story was originally published in August, and since then has been the subject of multiple retractions and edits.”
Traveler’s Digest was forced to change its story to reflect that the Ebola pandemic is not a public health threat because the disease is a pandemic.
The company did not respond to requests for comment.
