Question Permits and Approval to hold rally...

Core Team,

This might sound silly but do have the above in place for the 18th at DC...just read on the July 2 thread, people being worried of getting arrested etc...

I know you are a very organised group...it may be a good idea to address some of the worries people have to increase the attendance.

Regards

Dear members,

As we enter the final week of our rally preparation we would like to thank our members that have indicated that they would be coming for the rally. We also want to thank all state chapter and action item leaders for helping us out in this massive effort. This planning, coordination and implementation cannot happen without the help of each and every member. Help has ranged from phone call campaigns, publicity campaigns, media campaigns, lawmaker meetings, banner preparations, Merchandise set up, state chapter activities, Bus initiatives, Transportation and accommodation initiatives, sponsorships, reaching out to law offices and like minded organizations etc to tasks as important as deciding the Dinner menu for the Sept 17 event.

We still have a long way to go in our planning and implementation. IV membership is working hard to make this rally a success. The Sept 17th lobby day work is being implemented at this time and lawmaker office appointments are being sought. Everyone that has indicated their presence for this event will be contacted this week. We are planning a big reception event on September 17, from 6PM to 9PM at the Cannon Building in DC. IV members, lawmakers, staffers, industry leaders and other like minded organizations are expected to attend this event. It will be a great opportunity for IV members to meet these important representatives. There is also going to be a big Press event on Sept 18th that we are planning. There are several initiatives being taken to have a big media push for the rally. The rally is in itself a huge task that requires planning from getting all police permits (which we already have) to transporting rally material, providing registration opportunity for members, getting lawmakers to address the rally to details like stage and sound system.

All this has required IV to invest heavily. We already invest almost all in our lobbying efforts and remaining little in Website maintenance till now and somehow manage to run this organization on shoestring budgets. We need about 30 thousand dollars in the next 8 days to make sure we can meet our needs and also make a big impact via this rally. This rally will most certainly bring our issues to the national center stage and help us get much needed immigration relief.

This post urges everyone to come forward and help us in this short term funding drive. If you have not contributed till now, please consider contributing. If you have got your Receipt notice/FP notice/EAD etc. then do show your admiration for our combined effort via lobbying, San Jose rally and Flower campaign that enabled everyone to file their I485s. If you have recently received your green cards, then please consider contributing as a way of celebrating and endorsing our effort.

We need help from each and every member reading this post. We will continue to post updates. Please visit IV site regularly.

Thanks
IV team

Do you really believe that people who talk about being "arrested" are even interested in doing anything meaningful? I would suggest they would rather nobody did anything- that way they don't need to feel that tiny ounce of guilt.

we hear a common argument, you made need to read it twice- it's so ridiculous- i won't go to the rally because i fear xxx. Since the rally will have low numbers it should be canceled because that is counterproductive for "us".

So what's the deal? don't come and create the low number problem- then complain about it? The ultimate chutzpah!

Hear this please and tell the RN trackers if they still care:

ALL PERMITS ARE IN PLACE FOR THE RALLY- METRO POLICE, CAPITOL POLICE and NATIONAL PARKS.
NO ANTI IMMIGRANTS WILL HAVE PERMITS FOR A RALLY THE SAME DAY
IF ANYONE DISRUPTS OUR RALLY THEY WILL BE ARRESTED
OUR RIGHTS TO RALLY HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED.


for those with doubts about legality and "fear of arrest" (those that live in shadows darker than illegals who fearlessly marched without any problem):

READ THE IV FAQ IN THIS THREAD AND READ SHEILA MURTHY"S OPINION IN THE NOTE AT THE END OF HER NEWSLETTER

Why would Murthy, Shusterman, Siskind, Oh et al encourage and advertize the rally if it made their clients somehow "illegal" or in "contravention of law" or put "GC in jepoardy"????

There are a thousand excuses not to come, not to do the right thing.
Then there is one reason to join, and the one that benefits is YOU.

The choice is yours alone. I do request though that if you still want to think negative, pessimistic and self defeating thoughts, please don't advertize them to others. Thanks you in advance for that.
