The online petition is here: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/senovpreservation/ - it currently has 582 signatures and closure is threatened by 1 April, so please if you feel this is important (as we do) add your support to the petition now.

Note: after you have signed the petition, you will be asked to support ipetitions by a small donations - this is not necessary for your signature to be valid, so just close that window. You will still receive an email advising you that your signature has been added anyhow.

More about the school here: http://www.supss.clnet.cz/stranky/en_novinky.html

And more about the closure in German here:

584 signatures... only 2 people from the GMB have signed since Simon posted this...  does no-one else care about the loss of this important glassmaking training school?  :cry:
