Young researchers performed a flashmob haka dance in Piazza di Spagna in Rome. Their motto was "ready to fight for the future of research in Italy".

Luckly, though, in Italy science is not under attack like in the USA; polls reveal that scientists are one of the most trusted categories.

Being maori, I think it's very cool that parts of our culture are internationally recognized. Lots of actors and musicians also sport maori tattoos.

We'll just have to teach US scientists how to do the haka!
