Default Shouldn't we have Bill Gates at the rally?

Shouldn't we have Bill Gates or another high-profile personality who supports our cause present at the rally? IV has enough clout that they would probably join. Someone mentioned on another thread that we need this, we need an editorial in the NYT and the Post, we need a celebrity vouching for our cause. We still have a month before the rally. Can we do it? We can all help. Some guidance from Core, we will follow your lead!

This is a great idea. It may be too difficult , if not impossible , to convince Mr. Gates to address the rally. But it is highly beneficial to get some one higher up in the private sector and who is sympathetic to our cause to attend/address the rally. If that is the case there may be scheduling difficulties with the date and time. It may be easier to get some one from DC itself.

Anyways, the idea is Great.

Bill Gates leading the rally would be great help. If not, can we get an interview to see if he supports our cause. I understand that he supports increasing H1b numbers but we should be clear on what we are asking his support for.

Well...it might be too much to ask but if we get BG in the rally, we've nailed it. Headlines will be "Bill Gates rallied with the high skilled workers" all over the country.

Default Good Approach

It is indeed a good and not uncomon apporach to have a celebrity/notable person as a figure head of one's cause. Note the late Charleton
Heston for the NRA, Martin Sheen in anti-war protests and Angelina Jolie as the UN Goodwill ambassador. Now, in this case, you probably have to lobby Bill to get to know IV and book him a year in advance, but this line of thinking is good. Perhpas IV could rally in Silicon Valley or Sacremento with California's most notable Immigrant, Arnold Schwarzenegar, the governor no less, to address the crowd. That would be a publicity coup.

Default I support the Idea.

I definetly think we should think on these lines.
Get some Iconic figure to speak at the rally. I am almost certain the IV core has thought about it.
but can people in MicroSoft atleast try?

I just emailed Microsoft about this (through their website) God knows if it will ever reach Bill Gates, but if we all email Microsoft, we may be able to get through?

I hate to sound negative, but I dont think Mr Gates will ever do that.
You see, we shouldnt kid ourselves. We are in here by ourselves, friends. Lets face it, no one likes any sort of immigration in this country. If you see these days, the heat is increasing day by day.
After all these illegal workers rallies, and their fiasco at the senate level, the heat has just increased, and has become very close to hate. We are hated by more people in USA, than those who approve us. How many of us see people talk about the loss of American jobs at our workplace cafeteria? probably all of us. The common American citizen doesnt see us here as an asset, or skilled benefit. He/she thinks that we have come here to take their jobs. Do you all think that Mr Gates is just going to show up for us, and put himself at the receiving end of their wrath?
We will survive because of our skills, and continue to do so, because US economy needs us, but dont expect any open support from big whigs like Gates. They too savvy and clever to show up for a nice little walk, or talk to support the rally.

But then again. Miracles do happen. It is just, they havent happened yet in our favor.

This is a great idea. We will work on this to see if this is possible.

Hi All,

It will make a bigger impact if those who work with Microsoft send email to
Bill gates.

And its a good idea to contact other major Green Card friendly Companies to
ask for their participation or atleast hear their opinion.

The idea of bringing in someone famous is good but suggesting Bill Gates is ridiculuous and close to stupidity. He is the wealthiest man in the world and doesnt have time to attend all the tech sessions that he loves and you think he will have time to come take a walk with you? He has his own way of getting things done. He has already made a presentation to the congress a few months back to increase the H1 quota and after not getting support he said he will open a new development center in Canada.

Be realistic guys...

You may be right that Bill Gates is real busy, etc and we may not even be able to reach him. However, our rally is not just any high tech session, it is the FIRST MAJOR HIGH-SKILLED IMMIGRANT RALLY!!!! This is HUGE! This is the first time we'll march united to tell Americans that we are different from the illegals (most Americans support the idea of high-skilled immigrants if you ask them, but are uninformed). This rally is HUGE, and Bill Gates is smart, and he would see the importance of our rally. If we cannot get Bill Gates this time, at least he will see our FIRST rally on TV and he'll likely want to join the SECOND, THIRD, FOURTH rallies or whichever number of rallies we have to hold until we get what is fair = the right to contribute to the American economy without fear and exploitation (i.e. Greencard)
