For Torontonians

There ARE buses going from Toronto to NYC. Stop BUSH!
Get on the buses to New York!
Join the demonstration on August 29!

George Bush will be in New York City this August for the Republican National Convention. Hundreds of thousands of activists will be there too--from across the United States and around the world. In fact, New York City police are predicting at least half a million demonstrators. And over one thousand applications for rally permits have already been submitted to New York City Hall.

The Toronto Coalition to Stop the War will be sending buses to New York so that we can participate in these historic demonstrations in solidarity with the American anti-war movement.

Book your seat now!

The main demonstration will take place in Manhattan on Sunday, August 29 in the afternoon. Further actions and teach-ins will continue during the week.

Buses will leave Toronto from 720 Spadina Avenue on Saturday, August 28 at 7:00pm and will arrive in New York City on Sunday, August 29 at 7:00am (buses drive overnight).

There are currently two options to return to Toronto:

Bus 1 will leave New York on Sunday, August 29 at 7:00pm and will arrive in Toronto at 720 Spadina Avenue on Monday, August 30 at 7:00am (buses drive overnight).

Bus 2 will leave New York on Monday, August 30 at 7:00pm and will arrive in Toronto at 720 Spadina Avenue on Tuesday, August 31 at 7:00am (buses drive overnight).

Tickets cost $80.00 to $120.00 on a sliding scale. Pledge sheets are available at www.nowar.ca for those who'd like to self-fundraise.

Sunday night accommodations are available for an additional $5.00 for those passengers who take Bus 2.

PLEASE NOTE: All passengers crossing the U.S. border require a valid passport OR a valid photo I.D. and a birth certificate.

If you need to update your I.D., please do it as soon as possible as the wait may take months depending on your circumstances. It takes twenty weeks to get an Ontario birth certificate and only two weeks to get a Canadian passport. However, you may need a birth certificate to get a passport.

The passport office in Toronto is located at 74 Victoira Street, Suite 300 (east of Yonge Street, north of Adelaide Street West).  Hours of operation are 8:00am to 4:30pm.
