I made an appearance around the "ENERGISING MINDS" British Science Festival, 2012, Aberdeen with my "persecuted scientist" board, seen here. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! The expanded polystyrene, which had been packing from a LCD monitor box, made a light stiff board to stick my paper on. The message was just hand-written but it seemed to do the job OK. The board message just says - PETER DOW persecuted scientist FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER @peterdow I couldn't attend any of the British Science Festival events not being welcome on the university premises by the local powers-that-be but I was able to display my board on the public street around the University of Aberdeen, Old Aberdeen campus. So it was very nice to speak to a few of my fellow scientists in person after being excluded from university all these years and left to rot in isolation without a second thought like the authorities were putting out the garbage or a stray dog.
