Save jobs and services - nationalise rail

  (Click to enlarge)

Socialist Party members and supporters of the National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) joined the RMT transport union's protest outside Waterloo station, London, against cuts to South West Rail services.

The RMT and others have highlighted that cutting rail services won't help with the vital task of encouraging people out of their cars and onto public transport.

People don't want to be crammed like sardines on commuter trains. SWR say it is prudent to cut the number of trains because the public already subsidises the railway with billions of pounds. But why should we be paying any of their big wigs' wages?

We will continue to fight for a reliable, affordable and publicly owned transport network, which protects jobs and ensures full safety for passengers.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
