Default Is it OK for me to Rally? Greg Siskind has the answer!

From Siskind's blog on ILW
http://blogs.ilw.com/gregsiskind/200...etails-on.html

MORE DETAILS ON SEPTEMBER 18TH RALLY
Folks - The issue has been raised about whether non-citizens are allowed to participate in rallies. The answer is an emphatic YES! The main restrictions you have in participating in the world's oldest democratic republic is in your ability to vote and your ability to donate to election campaigns. You are most definitely allowed to go to a rally and press your case to the government.


Immigration Voice has released the following advisory for those attending:
