Default 14th July, San Jose Peaceful Protest (with poll)

IMMIGRATION VOICE ACTION ALERT: 7/11/2007.

Dear Members:

Immigration Voice is organizing its first peaceful protest rally in San Jose, CA on July 14th in order to protest the broken system of legal high-skills immigration. This protest march is being organized to oppose the enormous visas backlogs in the employment based immigration system. This protest march is also intended to oppose the recent decision of USCIS to block the adjustment of status petitions in July resulting from an unprecedented out-of-order reversal on the part of DOS and USCIS.

Please join this rally in huge numbers to create more awareness in the Media, Congress and the Administration. We are already getting attention of Congress and the Administration due to recently published articles on the flower campaign in New York Times and Washington Post on July 11th. If you cannot join but if you know someone who lives in San Jose area and who doesn’t know about this effort, please ask him or her to join this rally. More numbers will get us more media coverage and more attention to this issue.

This rally has the potential to bring our issue to the attention of everyone, including the Silicon Valley tech employers who have a stake in the morale and productivity of the hi-tech foreign employees in their companies and their backlogged immigration.

EVENT:
Peaceful protest march by Legal Immigrants in San Jose, CA.

Default Flowery idea?

What do you guys think, should we get some flowers at the San Jose rally too and give them out to the supporters?

That will display continuity of thought with our flower campaign and weave that into the peaceful protest.

Great idea. Since our recent flowers also ended up at the veteran's hospital, maybe we should wear yellow ribbons in support of troops?

I am not sure if you are being facetious but I think that is a great idea!

No, I'm not being facetious

There is always a chance that a well publicized (we are working on that part!) rally might attract opposition to the rally.

I wholeheartedly think that this gesture would be seen as fairly "american" and could defuse tension if it arises. Plus it would link back nicely to the flower campaign as well, and the eventual destination of the bouquets sent.

Political stance on wars aside, I don't think there are many people who don't support the lives on the line.

For the rally, I think some members were looking for poster ideas. I just thought of some :

Legal immigrants deserve 'honesty' (like 'amnesty')

Skilled immigrants' aspirations 'killed'

Green card applicants see Red

I will try to come up with some more. If it's not good, no worries, I wouldn't take it personally

Default Need volunteers from outside California

Fellow IVians or IVers. Whichever you prefer:

You may not be able to attend the San Jose rally but you can still be part of the effort by volunteering to help call the members in California and inform them about this event. You can call even if you are on the East Coast. This is urgent!

This will help us focus on other logistic issues like banners, posting flyers.
Your help will make the San Jose peaceful walk a success!
