Stop the Train Fare Rises!
Tuesday 16 August 2011
8:30 - 9:30 AM
Outside Waterloo Station
(corner of York Way and Sutton Walk)
If you're in / near London, please come down tomorrow morning and join us outside Waterloo Station as we demonstrate against government hikes in train fares!
We'll be unveiling our massive Bring Back British Rail banner and supporting the Campaign for Better Transport raise awareness for their Fair Fares Now campaign.
This article published in The Guardian today, outlines all the facts and figures behind these extortionate rises which clearly put the interests of the profit-making train operating companies before those of rail passengers. Read-up about it, get angry and come down and support us tomorrow!
