Science is Vital Protest Today!

By Mark Trodden | October 9, 2010 11:17 am

Just a quick update about the Science is Vital campaign that I posted about last week. If you are interested, and close to London, thousands of people are gathering outside the Treasury today as part of Science is Vital to protest about the planned cuts to science funding in the UK.

I’d also like to correct an omission in my last post by giving credit to Jenny Rohn for founding Science is Vital. Thanks for doing this Jenny!

If I could be at the Treasury today, I would. If you can, I hope you make it.
