Bring Back British Rail

Tuesday 5 November is a national day of civil disobedience. Meet at Euston Station - 7:30 am for the Protest Against Privatisation.

Bring Back British Rail Tuesday 5 November marks twenty years since John Major's government passed the opportunistic and short-sighted Railways Act, which permitted the breaking-up and selling-off of our beloved railways. Since 2009, Bring Back British Rail has been working hard to ensure that the history of our once proudly publicly owned railway is not forgotten. On our website, on Facebook and on Twitter, we are a growing movement of more that 60,000 people demanding a re-unified national rail network run for people not profit. Please join us today! Sign the Petition To mark the twentieth anniversary of privatisation, we are working with our friends at Action For Rail to co-ordinate a national 'day of action' for the Public Ownership of our railways. Please join us for the rally at Euston Station or see the Action For Rail website for details of protests taking place at more than 30 stations across the country on Tuesday 5 November, which is a national day of civil disobedience. Protest Against Privatisation Tuesday 5 November 2013 7:30 - 8:30 (8:00 AM photocall) Euston Station London NW1 2RT


Power For the People This autumn we are very excited to be launching our 'sister campaign' Power For The People - "the Bring Back British Rail for the Energy Industry". Power For The People aims to challenge the monopoly power of the UK's 'big six' energy companies - who continue to hike up prices whilst dodging their tax obligations - by popularising the commonsense idea of re-nationalising our country's energy production and supply. Sign the Petition Working together with Bring Back British Rail, we aim to draw attention to the disastrous consequences of the privatisations of the '80s and '90s which have seen prices soar whilst standards have fallen. Our website went LIVE today, so please follow the link and be one of the first to join us! www.bringbackbritishrail.org
