MUNI Riders & Drivers demand No Cuts & No Hikes!

Even after approving a devastating 10% reduction in MUNI services and price hikes for “premium” passes, the MTA (Municpal Transportation Agency), which is in charge of MUNI, announced their deficit is over $100 million for the next two years! The MTA’s solution? Proposing more cuts and more hikes!

Now, the MTA wants to declare a ‘Fiscal Emergency” for 2011-2012 in order to avoid having to study the impact that MUNI cuts and hikes will have on our communities and our environment.

In Sacramento, Regional Transit officials in charge of public transit have also declared a “Fiscal Emergency.” The media reports that this move was a “key step” towards the deep cuts that are expected in June. One of our very own MTA Board members, Cameron Beach, use to work for Sacramento RT and is well informed of the action those officials have taken…we will not let the MTA Board do what Beach’s colleagues did in Sacramento!

It is time to mobilize and demand a long-term solution to MUNI that doesn’t divide our communities or force us to fight each other for left over crumbs. The economic crisis of the MTA and the entire city cannot be solved on the backs of working and low-income families, seniors, or the disabled. MUNI Riders and Drivers United Against Cuts and Hikes! Chop from the Top, Tax the Rich!

DEMAND:

• NO Cuts! NO Hikes!
• Chop from the Top, Tax the Rich!
• Stop SFPD Attacks on MUNI!
• Riders and Drivers United for More Transit!

MOBILIZE TO FIGHT BACK!

¡Pasajeros y Conductores de MUNI demandan Alto a Recortes y Aumentos!

Después de haber aprobado una reducción devastadora de 10% a servicios de MUNI y aumentos en pases “de primera,” ¡el MTA (Agencia Municipal de Transportación), que se encarga de MUNI, todavía anunció que su déficit de los siguientes dos años es mas de $100 millones! ¿La solución del MTA? ¡Proponer mas recortes y aumentos!

Ahora, El MTA quiere declarar una “Emergencia Fiscal” durante el 2011 y 2012 para no tener que estudiar el impacto que los recortes y aumentos a MUNI tendrá en nuestras comunidades y a nuestro medio ambiente.

Es tiempo de movilizarnos y demandar una solución de largo plazo a MUNI que no divide a nuestras comunidades ni nos forzar a pelear entre nosotros por las migajas que sobran. La crisis económica del MTA y toda la ciudad no se solucionará sobre las espaldas de familias trabajadoras y de bajo-ingresos, los ancianos, o los incapacitados. ¡Conductores y Pasajeros de MUNI Unidos Contra Recortes y Aumentos! ¡Mochen Desde Arriba, Cobren a los Ricos!

DEMANDE:

• ¡NO Recortes! ¡NO Aumentos!
• ¡Mochen desde Arriba, Cobren a los Ricos!
• ¡Alto a los Ataques del SFPD a MUNI!
• ¡Pasajeros y Conductores Unidos para mas Transito!

¡Movilizase para Luchar!
