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.

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
