Fix NSW Transport

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Fix NSW Transport rally and made it such a big success.

We had over a thousand people from over 25 community groups and unions attend. Our message to stop the tolls and put public and active transport first was heard loud and clear and we received prime time coverage on Nine, Seven and ABC news. A number of follow up articles appeared in the Blue Mountains Gazette, the Newcastle Herald, the Mosman Daily, the Inner West Independent, the South Sydney Herald and Australasian Bus & Coach.

A good video summary was produced by Green Left Weekly along with two follow up articles here and here.

Another video was produced by Mark Gould and features John Pilger:

Articles in the build up to the rally appeared in the South Sydney Herald, City Hub and Green Left Weekly.

The FIX NSW TRANSPORT organisers have begun planning for another big event in August. It will be a huge CBD lantern walk uniting even more of NSW into a powerful campaign to STOP WESTCONNEX, STOP THE TOLLS and put PUBLIC AND ACTIVE TRANSPORT FIRST.

Let's keep the conversation going. If you experience a transport FAIL, don't get angry, get active. Spread the word by sharing your experiences on social media using the hashtag #fixNSWtransport.
