DERBY AND BELPER PROTESTS against RAIL FARE RISES AND CALL FOR PUBLIC OWNERSHIP ON TUESDAY 16 AUGUST
Belper Rail station – 07:45 – 08:15
Derby Rail station – 16:30 – 18:00
On Tuesday 16 August the government will announce yet another hike in our rail fares, but services are often late, overcrowded and under-staffed. Passengers and taxpayers are being asked to pay an ever increasing price for the failures of rail privatisation.
While fares keep rising, cuts to services and staffing are taking place across the network – with more ticket offices closing, removal of guards from trains, extension of driver only operations and fewer staff at stations to provide help when we need it. We’re paying more, but getting less.
Action for Rail is organising a day of action on 16 August . This is being supported by the Peoples Assembly, Momentum, Derby Climate Coalition and Derby Unite Community branch, as well as the Rail unions.
