Background: About 150 scientists working in various Euratom research centres demonstrated outside the Council of Ministers building in Brussels this morning. The Council of Ministers was meeting to discuss Euratom, and particularly its future research programme. For the last few years Euratom has had a dicey time, with its funds curtailed and research programmes interrupted. For about two years its done almost no work. The many excellent scientists working in the centres around Europe have demonstrated often to try and get a research programme passed by the Council of Ministers...hence today's demo. Two police vans there, and more police were waiting round the corner, but demo was calm and almost good-humoured.
