WA and Seattle area residents, please come for the event. We have IV leaders from different parts of the country coming to speak to all of us. Get to know them, understand why they are doing this, what is at stake and how you can help in different ways. We want everyone to be at the rally in San Jose on Sept 8th, lets start working together to get as many people as we can to attend. Don't be on the side lines, hoping magic happens. There is no magic, hard work, and perseverance will prevail, that's we learn as kids, lets now do our part and be part of this amazing movement. Talking to strangers is hard at first, if you feel you are trying to sell them something. This is our problem, this is their problem, this is everyone's problem to solve. So believe and work hard, we are so close but we need everyone to be there.

On 16th, 18th and 19th August, Fremont city (part of Bay Area, very near to San Jose, CA) is going to celebrate Indian Independence day. Every year, Fremont which has very very huge Indian population celebrates Indian Independence day with great fervor, pomp and pageantry. I belive a couple thousand Indians get together and celebrate.

Here is the link to the event --> 2012 Festival of India and Parade | Fremont | FunCheapSF

This is a very good opportunity to Market and canvass about this rally. I will not be able to go because of other compulsions. If any body is going, please carry few hundred printouts of San Jose rally flyers and distribute. Please spread the message.

This is a unique opportunity to spread the word among Indian brothers and sisters.

Today, illegal aliens have been given amnesty by Obama and his democrats by circumventing the US Constitution and Congress. This is a huge blow for us who have been patiently waiting in line for over 10 years. Holding these rallies and making calls to senators, etc. are of no use. What we really need is to make sure we show Americans who are watching our rallies that we are serious. Let's make huge boards and banners that tell US voters to vote OUT all democrats from every district in the US, from the President's election to local elections. Obama is the worst US president who had been pandering for Latino votes and is ready to sell the USA to hold on to power. Let us show him and his Democrats who really have the power to turn the election. Vote only republicans....democrats are cheats and have done nothing for legal immigrants. Compare the $495 that these illegals have to pay to get EAD and SS # - compare that to the thousands legal Indians spend to renew visas year after year and pay attorneys and all that and still many spouses have to wait 10 years to get an EAD. Doesn't this burn you? :mad::mad:

Just getting frustrated will get you deeper into the hole, instead transition your frustration into positive energy and help with the rally, contribute and follow any future action items that come along.

...partly 'coz they had the guts to stand up and express their frustrations out in the open, although being undocumented. Whether what Obama did is right or wrong, but the fact remains that the noise created by these people were heard.

So, it teaches us something...no use whining about the situation we are in, rather do something about it! And what better way than joining the rally. So, are you gonna be there at the rally? By looking at what you are feeling, I'd think you would, won't you?

I respectfully disagree, but I can understand your frustration. We can use some of your energy in volunteering and making this rally successful. Come join us, and lets speak in one voice.

So for all the talk about rallies and positive energy - did it work? Was it worth it? NO!

You can ask that only if you had attended it. Did you? And did you bring others with you? To make it "work" the numbers are important -- makes sense?
