Join the action for a publicly owned railway!

On Tuesday 16th August, we’re teaming up with our friends at We Own It and Action For Rail to organise protests at stations all over the UK – from Brighton to Glasgow – to End the #RailRipOff. See the Facebook event for full details of times / locations and read on for some of the special events.

#SouthernFail Protest
On Tuesday 16th August, we continue the #SouthernFail campaign, demanding that the failing franchise be returned to public ownership. Join the protest at London Bridge station from 7:30-9am, in the forecourt of the main entrance (Exit 1).

Support the campaign against Abellio Greater Anglia
Through our Franchises initiative, we’re supporting the Norfolk 4 Nationalisation of Rail campaign. On Tuesday 16th August they are holding rallies at Norwich and London Liverpool Street stations from 11am-1pm. Go along to hear guest speakers from 12noon.

Stop the Privatisation of Network Rail!
For over a year, we’ve been campaigning to stop Network Rail – the only bit of our railway still in public ownership – from being broken-up and privatised. On Tuesday 16th August our friends at We Own It will be descending on Network Rail offices at 9:30am to hand in our petitions. Please make sure you sign and share them before:
