    Spanish science needs no cuts

    Right now the tally of blogs supporting the "Spanish science needs no cuts" goes up to the thousands, and it's basically a slap in the face of the government, that has released all its mediatic power to try and convince somebody that it's the other way round, that we live in the best of all possible worlds.
    In fact, the money devoted to fund basic research and competitive grants has gone down sharply, and that's on the top of an even sharper drop the previous year, and an not-so-well-publicized drop the year before. It's already three years in a row with even prestigious groups known internationally having trouble to make ends meet, so we have finally said enough is enough and jumped to our blogs to make our voices heard.
    It's going to be useless, probably, but don't underestimate the power of under/post/and ultra grads with an open Internet connection.
