Londoners! This Saturday, 2,000+ scientists and lovers of science will rally in Westminster to tell the nation that "Science is Vital" and to protest cuts to science programmes in the new budget. Bring placards, lab coats, and scientific instruments. I'm going to try to bring my kid, who is the most sciencey thing in the house, a living applied developmental neuroscience experiment that I've been working on for about 31 months now.
The rally will be alongside HM Treasury, on King Charles Street, LONDON SW1A 2AH.

Saturday 9th October 2010, at 2 PM.
You! And another 2,000 scientists and supporters--if you haven't already done so, please sign the petition and check the box to let us know you're coming. To make a visual impact, we encourage you to wear or carry something that signifies science--for example, if you work in a lab, wear a lab coat; if you're an astronomer, bring a telescope; or simply carry a banner with a picture of something scientific you love.
Bring placards and banners with slogans saying why Science is Vital. We're also in the process of arranging a great lineup of speakers--details soon
