We’ll be printing some placards for you to wave at the rally!

But here are some suggested slogans if you want to bring your own banners:

Science – It beats living in a cave!
Banking doesn’t cure disease
Up and Atom!
Science: More useful than a duck island.
Science: Because alchemy’s a myth
We need a fair share of the π!
Fair funding. It’s not rocket science.
No more Dr Nice Guy!
Science saves lives
Do the math. Science = Growth
Do you guys not want jetpacks or something?
My other coat is a lab coat!
Science: I’m Lovin’ It!
Cut the nonsense, not the funding

Feel free to suggest more below!
