The CSIRO has lost 1300 jobs and over $100m was cut in the 2014 budget. Now it’s planned that more than 270 scientists working on critical issues like climate change, land, water, agriculture, cities and manufacturing are to be sacked.
Around 3,000 scientists from 60 countries have protested at these destructive cuts, along with national research organisations from the US, UK and Europe.
