MPL Joinville - for a life without turnstiles: Demonstration July 2!

MPL Joinville - for a life without turnstiles: Manifestation July 2!: The recent demonstrations in Brazil demonstrated the power of organized people. After several weeks of struggle, fares of public transport decreased in Sao Paulo, Goiania, Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre and other cities. The struggle for a real public transport must not stop.
In Joinville, the reduction of ten cents in no way alters the fundamental problem of transport: it remains private, without public control, and still very expensive. In January 2014 the contracts of Transtusa and Gidion end. The city aims to make a bid in which everything will be the same. It's time things change.
The Free Pass Movement fought for more than eight years in Joinville and has a project for public transport. The Zero Tariff, Free transportation project, funded by progressive taxes (property tax on high luxury mansions, vacant land, property taxes on the second car etc..). This is a project that is already fully performing in more than 50 cities around the world.
The bidding city will decide the next 15 years of transportation in Joinville. It can still be expensive and with no quality control by the population, or we can fight for public transport with real workers' and users' control.

Come fight with us for Zero Tariff in Joinville Brazil and everywhere!
