Petition the government - STFC cuts

As part of the effort to combat the swingeing cuts that threaten fundamental physics research in the UK an online petition has been set up at

Please pass this information on to anyone who might care about Britain's place at the leading edge of scientific research and keeping it there.

This from the FAQ:

What will happen to my petition once it is finished?

Once your petition has closed, usually provided there are 200 signatures or more, it will be passed to officials who work for the Prime Minister in Downing Street, or sent to the relevant Government department for a response.

Every person who signs such a petition will receive an email detailing the Government's response to the issues raised.

The petition is open to UK citizens at home and abroad. At the time of writing 1456 people have added their names placing the petition at 144th in the list (the top petition has 242932 names).
