We cannot wait anymore! Mobilization for Città della Scienza from Monday, May 27

An address to all our friends

Dear friends,

more than two months and a half have gone by since the fire that destroyed the Science Centre of Città della Scienza the night of March 4, 2013. An event which represented another severe blow to the difficult situation already faced by the whole structure and its workers. Since then, Città della Scienza has received countless proofs of affection and esteem.

From that day, despite aching for an unsustainable carelessness on the part of the national institutions, all workers have rolled up once again their sleeves and, despite numerous salaries not yet paid due to incomprehensible and guilty late payment by public bodies, they didn’t give up on their project.

Now, to go ahead, we need that the institutions fulfill the terms of their commitments, by paying the amounts for the MIUR contribution assigned to Città della Scienza for the fiscal year 2008 as well as the 2012 grant provided for the Law 6/2000 that supports the institutions of scientific culture in Italy.

For this reason, we invite you to participate and support us in the mobilization that will begin on Monday, May 27, at 11:00 am, when we will symbolically occupy with exhibits, experiments and science demonstrations, the spaces in front of the headquarters of the Ministry of Education of Viale Trastevere in Rome.

The mobilization will continue to the bitter end, until the material delivery of our fair share, by raising the awareness on the issues of science and culture, starting from our specific situation, in ways and forms that we will establish from time to time.

We thank you in advance for your support!
