No to EU Rail Privatisation Posted to RMTv October 9, 2013
Campaigners from RMT, Action for Rail, the ETF and our sister rail unions descended on the European Commission offices at the former Tory Party HQ in Smith Square to ram home the message against EU privatisation through the Fourth Rail Package and in favour of public ownership. The protest came just a day after the publicly owned East Coast service announced it was putting a billion pounds back into the treasury while the private operators soak up billions in profits and subsidies. The EU want to smash up publicly owned railways by diktat and roll out the British model of privatisation across the continent. This protest was part of an EU-wide day of action dedicated to stopping them. Filmed and edited by Andrew Brattle.
