Save Your Railway

18/06/2012

On top of rocketing energy bills, the government wants us to pay inflation-busting rail fare increases of up to 30 per cent – or even more – over the next three years.

At the same time the government’s policy calls for fewer, more overcrowded rail services, ticket-office closures, the axing of tens of thousands of front-line railway staff, the break-up of Network Rail into ‘mini-Railtracks’ and reduced safety standards.

But the railway companies are being given the green light to make even bigger profits on top of the astonishing £11 billion of YOUR money that has been drained from the industry since privatisation.

Elsewhere in Europe railways are cheaper and more efficient because they have been kept in a unified structure in the public sector.

Come to the public meeting and discuss how we can save our railways and campaign for a rail network fit for the 21st century.

Speakers:

Mike Sargent, executive member Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers’ Union

(Crawley MP Henry Smith invited)

7.30pm, Thursday 21 June

St John’s Church Hall The Broadway,

Crawley Town Centre,

RH10 1HE
