Before Christmas Get Ready For...
You may have heard the news this week that our train fares are about to increase by an average of 5.9% in January.
If you're sick of being ripped-off by private train companies and by a government which wants to rid itself of all responsibility for running our public transport system, then get ready to take action!
Bring Back British Rail is teaming up with Campaign for Better Transport, Climate Rush and Together for Transport to organise a national day of action on Tuesday 3 January to protest against these extortionate fare increases.
#FAREFAIL protests will be taking place online via text and Twitter as well as at major stations in London and elsewhere around the country from the morning of Tuesday 3 January 2012.
We're keen to recruit people to come along and to help us spread the word. It doesn't matter where you live, if you'd like to get involved, please email us with the subject 'ACTIVIST', sign up and order materials directly via the #FAREFAIL website or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the updates:
In the meantime, please also make sure you sign the e-petition via our website and share the link with all your friends and colleagues. We've created this short link for easy sharing:
Have a great Christmas, and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
