International Buy Nothing Day!

The rally will occur at Toronto?s Eaton 
Centre, on the evening of Friday November 28th, 2003! 

  The event will promote smarter and more sustainable consumption, and 
encourage the breaking down of the barriers between the commodities that we 
consume and the resulting social and environemntal consequences. 


In the spirit of raising awareness and good vibes at UofT (st george campus) , 
let's have a party before we make our way down to main Buy Nothign Day event! 

The plan is to meet infront of UC(University College) at 1:30 and then we'll 
dance around, drum up some anti-corporatism and talk to people on the way as 
we make our way to Young and Dundas... 

If you want to meet up around 1:30, email back if you want, so we know to wait 
for you.  If class is too important to miss...(which class!!)...then PLEASE 
come down afterwards, whenever you can to the below location. 

This event is always a wonderful way to network, raise tremendous awareness 
build community!
