TfL cuts - Public Meetings at tube stations

Can you help bring the public on board?[London] 

The TfL proposed cuts will impact passenger safety, impact disabled passengers and lead to a worse travel experience for all. There is also a proposal to remove pay-as-you-go oyster cards and replace with a facility on contactless bank cards - so that TfL do not sort out any problems - your bank has to do that.

At the December London Fed a motion was passed: “The London Green Party will campaign against the TfL cuts and where possible will liaise with the relevant unions and Occupy.”

Can any members of the Green Party join with the RMT to hold a public meeting at their local tube station (for an hour - with a drink and discussion afterwards)? Please let me know asap if you can so we be as joined up as possible.
I will be at the Kings Cross one (with the Green Party Women's banner) and Wanstead, hopefully Leytonstone too and could get to others (but will not be able to be in two places at once).

Propose dates are
Fri 31st Jan    Kings Cross
Mon 3rd Feb    Whitechapel, Willesden Green
Fri 7th Feb
Mon 10th Feb
Fri 14th Feb

RMT will supply a speaker with a megaphone and their leaflets.

You will need:
Sufficient space close to tube entrance that is public and non-obstructive,
GP leaflets
Plan/person for dealing with officialdom if they turn up.

Ideally but not essential:
local party banner,
umbrellas, gazebo even if space
soapbox (equivalent) -
stall with GP leaflets (GPTU one – joining leaflet, Jean’s LGNs etc) and, donations tin, badges

There will be a mass meeting at Kings Cross this Friday from 18:00 for about an hour.

Please come and see how it is done.

Full disclosure - my husband is one of the staff who will need to re-apply for his job.
