Re-nationalise ScotRail online action

11th March 2015 | Demonstration / News

Another great example of the absurdity and injustice of privatisation – on the April Fools’ Day this year, the ScotRail franchise will be handed to the Dutch state-owned Abellio, meaning Scots’ train fares will soon be subsidising railways in Holland!

As part of 48 Hour of Action for Public Ownership (on 31 March & 1 April 2015), Bring Back British Rail is launching a Thunderclap action to protest. If you use Facebook / Twitter, please sign-up to support:

Day of Action for Public Ownership

On Tuesday 19 August, we will find out how much our already over-priced train tickets will increase again in the New Year. Bring Back British Rail is joining forces with our friends at We Own It, Action For Rail and the new All on Board campaign to protest against these increases and to propose public ownership as the common-sense solution, which could help reduce our ticket prices by up to 20%.

Join us at stations all around the country and at our big demo in London at King’s Cross Station.

All on Board for Public Ownership
Tuesday 19 August 2014
7:30 – 9:00AM
King’s Cross Station
(assemble in King’s Cross Square at front of station for 8:00AM photo-op)

Protest Against Transport Profiteers Govia

12th June 2014 | Demonstration / News

TSGN: Super-Bad Franchise
Bring Back British Rail is supporting our friends at Action For Rail in their day of action this Tuesday 17 June against the merger of the Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern rail franchises into one ‘super-bad’ franchise run by Govia.

The private company Govia is a ‘joint venture’ between transport profiteers Go-Ahead and their partners in crime Keolis, which is 35% owned by French state railways. This is the perfect example of the absurdity of our privatised rail system, where our extortionate train fares are used to fund dividends for private shareholders and subsidise public transport overseas!

Protests are taking place throughout the South East, including a central action at London Victoria station moving on to Go-Ahead’s head office close by.

Tuesday 17 June 2014
7.45am – 8.45am
London Victoria
Terminus Place (outside Superdrug)
London SW1W 9SJ

9.15am – 9.45am
Go Ahead
4 Matthew Parker Street
London SW1H 9NP

See Action for Rail’s website for other actions taking place throughout the South East!
