+ - UK Scientists leave labs to protest expected cuts->

Submitted by uid7306m
uid7306m (830787) writes "The UK government is planning an austerity budget, in the wake of the financial crisis and banking bailouts. This involves a 25% overall cut in the government budget, and the indications are that it will hit UK science and university budgets strongly. In response to this, a campaign has started that has managed to get scientists out of their labs and into the streets. The BBC has a story here.

It's not just about saving jobs: science builds the economy, is the basis for just about all the technical toys you can imagine, medicine, and perhaps one day will even sort your socks or save the ecosystem. So, there are good reasons to keep science funded."
