If you are on twitter you might have seen that hashtag. And if you are a tax payer then we need you!

A petition has been lodged at the White House ‘We the People’ asking for all tax-payer generated scientific results to be made freely available.

This is how it works – If we get 25,000 signatures by June 19, then it will go to the Obama Executive Office. So you see, we do need you!

If you think you should have access to what you pay us the scientists to produce, then please go and sign the petition.
