Support academic freedom in Iraq

Here is a link to a Petition asking that the UK government support Iraqi academics. Colleagues in that country are currently under threat from more or less medieval forces. They're being kidnapped, tortured and murdered by sectarian barbarians in the country. The consequences for development are dire if teachers of medicine, nursing, architecture etc are leaving the country in order to save their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
