Renationalise the rail

Some 75 people came to a 'Renationalise the rail' public rally in Nottingham last week. Speakers included Alan Simpson MP, Jim Creamer, branch secretary of East Midlands RMT, and a Dudley hospitals striker. The meeting brought together Labour Party activists, Socialist Alliance members, environmental campaigners, and members of the World Development Movement. Some 13 people joined the Socialist Alliance, which will be standing a candidate against John Heppell in Nottingham East. Heppell is John Prescott's parliamentary private secretary and refuses to support the call to renationalise the railways.
