Census Alert

Last two days to sign the e-petition against Lockheed Martin running the 2011 census!

The decision on whether arms manufacturer Lockheed Martin will be the main contractor for the 2011 Census is about to be made by the Office of National Statistics, and the online petition on the Downing Street website is due to finish on 15th June.

The petition is now in the top 40 petitions on the site and, to get even higher up the list, it needs to get as many new signatures as possible by the time it expires.

The petition calls on the Prime Minister to:

"stop the involvement of arms company Lockheed Martin in the 2011 Census for England and Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, because this company's history of working in American military intelligence will undermine public confidence in the Census process."
