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.
