Take Action

The aim of Knowmore.org is to raise awareness of corporate abuse, and to serve as a catalyst for direct action against corporate power.

Ethical Consumerism is an important movement toward corporate reform, through which individuals recognize their own role in systems of oppression, and take personal steps toward resistance and  positive change.

However, the problem of unchecked corporate power is systemic and goes far beyond the scope of any single boycot or campaign.

Once you've seen enough of Knowmore's data and familiarized yourself with our Issues section, check out our Direct Action page to get involved!

France's state-owned railway company, Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Français (SNCF), is still blazing a trail as the nation's primary provider of local and long-distance passenger and freight service. Passenger transportation, including both commuter trains and intercity service throughout France and into neighboring countries, accounts for the largest share of the company's sales. SNCF's Eurostar joint venture shuttles passengers between Paris and London via the Channel Tunnel, and Thalys links Paris with other European capitals. SNCF's high-speed TGV passenger trains travel at up to 350 mph. Overall, the SNCF network spans more than 30,800 km (19,100 miles) of track and about 4,000 stations. [1]

[edit] Business : "The Hell Train of Corruption"

"As L'Express indicates, the cartels did not only affect the structures and embankments of the TGV-Nord and Sud-Est They also concerned the placement of ballast, rails, overhead lines and construction of stations. In short, all contracts awarded by the national society"
