Reclaim Our Railway – People Before Profit


7.30pm, Tuesday 1 December

Momentum Brighton & Hove meeting

Friends’ Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton BN1 1AF

Speakers: Garry Hassell, RMT; junior doctors’ representative tbc

Peoples railway

One of the first changes under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership was Labour’s new policy to actively advance public ownership of Britain’s railway. It’s a huge advance that this policy is now being taken forward by Labour’s leadership, rather than pushed by members alone.  Following Jeremy’s election as leader, rail union RMT is among those considering re-affiliation to the Labour Party.

Momentum Brighton & Hove plans to organise local supporters to participate across Brighton & Hove during the next national Action for Rail protests, which will coincide with January’s rail fare increase. Hear about this from Garry Hassell of Brighton & Hove RMT and get involved at this meeting on Tuesday 1 December.

Tuesday 1 December is the first strike day planned by junior doctors in their dispute with the Government and a doctors’ representative has also been invited to speak at this meeting.  Sussex LRC joins Momentum Brighton & Hove in offering our solidarity and support to junior doctors in that dispute, as we do to all NHS staff, patients and campaigners fighting back to stop the Tories wrecking our NHS.

If you want to see Jeremy Corbyn elected as the UK’s next Prime Minister, we encourage you to go along to this second meeting of Momentum Brighton & Hove, and get active.  Momentum aims to unite, motivate, educate and organise socialists, both inside and outside the Labour Party, in support of Jeremy Corbyn.  Momentum Brighton & Hove plans to hold regular meetings and run street activities.  Rather than meeting separately in December, Brighton & Hove LRC members have decided to support this meeting of Momentum Brighton & Hove.
