***WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU'RE TRAVELING TO DC***
The October 26 protest to Stop the War on Iraq Before it
Starts will begin at 11 am in Constitution Gardens, which
is adjacent to the Vietnam Veterans War Memorial. We will
rally and then march to the White House.
For detailed driving directions to DC, go to
http://www.mapquest.com/directions/main.adp and enter
"Constitution Ave. and 21st St. NW" as your destination.
The rally gathering site is at 21st St. and Constitution
Ave. NW; this is Constitution Gardens adjacent to the
Vietnam Veterans War Memorial. Buses and vans can drop
passengers off at this location. Buses cannot park here,
but they can pull up and unload on the south side of
After an opening rally at the Vietnam Veterans War
Memorial, we will march to the White House, and then march
back to our starting location. So bus pick up will be the
same location as bus drop off: 21st St. and Constitution
Buses can park at RFK stadium. The cost of parking for the
day will be $30 and buses must pay when they enter the
parking lot. The bus drivers should indicate that they are
with the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition event. The buses can
remain there for the day.
A map of RFK stadium showing the parking areas can be
. RFK Stadium is located in southeast DC and can be
reached by driving East on Independence Ave. towards the
Anacostia River (the stadium is located just past 19th St.
Please note: Buses should not travel to RFK Stadium before
dropping off passengers. Large groups taking the metro
from RFK to the rally site will be very time consuming and
result in passengers being late for the march. Please drop
all passengers off at the rally site and return to the
rally site for pick up.
VAN/CAR PARKING INFORMATION
It may be possible to find street parking for cars and
vans. The earlier you arrive, the more likely it is that
you will find a parking space, as they fill up fast (this
is a busy area for tourists). Most meter spaces in this
area do not have to be paid on Saturdays.
If you are unable to find street parking, there are
several parking lots within 3/4 of a mile of the rally
site. Those lots only take cars. To park vans, you will
have to drive to a parking lot slightly farther away.
A list of area parking lots for cars and vans can be found
by going to
and scrolling down to "van/car parking information."
