Support a National Day of Action for Public Transportation

04.02.2012

Rally & Speak Out at the Massachusetts State House
Wednesday April 4, 3 – 5 p.m.
At Grand Staircase

Not Cuts to MBTA Services, No Fair Hikes for the 99%

The MNA/NNU has endorsed and will participate in a rally and speak out at the State House on April 4 organized by Occupy Boston as part of a National Day of Action for Public Transportation. Public transportation is a right and must be accessible to all. Service cuts and fare hikes will have a devastating and disproportionate impact on low-income communities, communities of color, students, workers, seniors and the environment.

Join us as part of the National Day of Action on Transportation to demand:
  • No service cuts
  • No fare hikes
  • No layoffs
  • No privatization of our treasured public transit system.
  • A comprehensive state-wide plan for affordable and sustainable transportation that works for the 99%.
The MBTA says it plans to raise fares and slash service.  The 99% have other plans.

April 4 is also the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic speech linking poverty and war – and his assassination exactly one year later.

Public transportation is a right and must be accessible to all.  Let’s show the Massachusetts’ Legislature and Governor Patrick what public transportation means to the 99%.

See you on the 4th! And please spread the word.  A downloadable flyer is available  here.
