Default How to make rallies a success

With a successful flower campaign to USCIS, we must draw our conclusions from this success, and use the outcome to make the San Jose rally a success.

Please note that legal immigrants is a small handful set of people. Just a usual rally/demonstration will not make a dramatic impact. We have learned from the flower campaign that if we use innovative-peaceful ways of demonstrations, and manage Public Relations and Media well, we can be successful once again.

Please think and try to come up with some ideas. I have come up with these four ideas:

1. Project Martin Luther King Jr. as our hero in these rallies: Please understand that local Amrican people better understand about Martin Luther King Jr. andhis idealogy then M.K. Gandhi. My suggestion is that we should include large picture posters of Martin Luther King Jr. with a slogan "We legals too have a dream". We should also take Gandhi's posters. There is a possibility that all Black American organization may lend their support to us.

2. An act that attracts media attention: Please remember the scene from Gandhi movie when protesters led by Gandhi peacefully burned their resident permits in South Africa. To do something similar and show our symbolic protest against USCIS, we can publically burn a Photocopy of our H1B approvals (I-797). Please note that we are not asking people to burn the original I-797 approval but a photocopy of the document. This will send a message that taking the great pain in obtaining these legal documents are not helping us getting a better treatment by USCIS. This act will perfectly portrey the pain of legal immigrants and once again will attract media and newsprint to keeps us in headlines. This should be part of our demonstrations.

3. Waive American Flags: Please understand that recent media reports that only Indians are responsible for the flower campaign may hurt the campaign in the longer term. Please waive small American flags and show our solidarity with local Americans.

4. Distrubute a flower with a pamphlet to the people passing by at the demonstration site. A well worded paper will be required that can project our problems to the people.

Please share if you come up with innovative ideas to make these rallies a huge success.

Also, considering that there are only 4 more days to the rally if it is on 14th, we need considerably more publicity in the media and on blogs on this.

This rally will be a watershed event because as far as I know, this would be the first of its kind by skilled, legal immigrants and it should get the media attention that it deserves.
I second this. It took me full 15 minutes to figure out that the rally was on 14th not 7th.

Is it legal? There could be a law written in the 1800s that bans something like this. Please confirm. Things like burning stuff have a tendency to go out of hand and create larger problems. IMHO, more peaceful means would be better.

Nah, we have better things to do than burn something.
Also, we don't want to add to the already hot weather in California and to global warming at large. We need cool ideas not hot headed remarks. I like the flower idea better

yes lets put the burning act aside. Also it should be clear in the rallies that it is LEGAL immigration that we are talking. I still see some comments on the news stories. "All Illegals should be sent away"
My point is that any time we talk about immigration, common people think illegal as thats the only side they are exposed to.

Default My slogan: Fees double, More trouble.

My slogans: Fees double, More trouble.
Be legal = Pay more fees and NO GC

IF IMMIGRANT STATUS = LEGAL then
{
WAIT FOR "N" YEARS
PAY MORE FEES
NO GC
}
EndIF

Also we need to emphasize & communicate is the "increased fees" (almost doubled in many cases) for all USCIS services effective end of this month (July 30).

The rallys and campaigns should emphasize this important detail too. This is huge money and not fair to the amount of service that is being currently provided.

Is this the penalty to be legal ?

Default slogans...from American Elite on immigration

There are some very good quotes from
American x presidents , socialists and authors


These should be included because Americans are more aware of them and its a symbol that we respect the American leaders thoughts and aspirations.

I have posted them on the other thread.
