Action weekend June 2015

No more cuts – develop Europe’s long-distance rail!

Weekend of Action took place 19–21 June 2015

The European rail system could be the most connected, convenient, accessible and environment-friendly way of travelling across the continent. But many international rail services have been cut back or stopped completely in the last few years, including the popular night train routes Berlin – Brussels – Paris, Copenhagen – Basel, Paris – Madrid and Barcelona – Milan, and direct daytime trains such as Krakow – Berlin/Prague. And more trains are threatened.

Despite the focus on climate change with this year’s UN summit in Paris, greenhouse gas emissions from transport continue to rise as people travel more and more by car and plane, in part because it has become so difficult to take the train for medium- to long-distance trips.
