The rail systems of the western world seem to be collapsing all at once. As the railroad workers have been telling us here in the US for years, capitalist ownership of the railroads has hollowed out the safety of the networks and left them in a dangerous condition. We saw this illustrated all too clearly in Greece, where a recent tragic collision between a passenger train and a freight train left over 50 people dead. We decided to sit down and discuss the recent upsurge in rail workers fighting back against decades of negligence. We discuss the ways the disaster in East Palestine, the 6 month long rolling strikes by rail workers in the UK, and the massive country wide mass strikes organized in Greece in the aftermath of this most recent tragedy are connected, and how our organizing should respond.
