With budget cuts looming on top of the damage done by maladministration at the STFC on two occasions, organised resistance to further cuts to science has begun to be formed.
The group is presently organised by the Science is Vital facebook page (they’ll have a website ‘soon’, apparently) and the march on Central London has been set for 2-4pm on the 9th of October, details here. Lobbying will occur in Parliament, Early Day Motions are being mooted too as well as a campaign of letter writing to MPs.
They’re also getting a bit of attention in the press.
More info on events leading up to all this is here.
