Default NY-NJ Rally...When ?

NY/NJ....we did not see lot of representation from you...

Its time to prove that you guys work in the ECONOMIC CAPITAL OF THE WORLD!

Pull up your slevees and start planning...

Most of the TV stations are in NY, so start planning for the rally soon...sometime late OCT....The weather should be good for wearing formal suits.....

Imagine 1000+ people dressed in formal suits, walking in NY streets in front of all those big ompanies...it will be a huge media attraction....

Just two rallies is not enough......Every state should do this!!!!

This time we will get it straight about adding
"Legal Immigrants - Highly skilled workers" at the bottom of all the slogans....

Tristate folks dont mind driving 4 hrs to catch a movie but going to the rally is a big hassle for them.
Even if it was held in NYC, folks from tristate will not show up.They have to straighten their priorities first.
Some of them had genuine reasons but most of them were just not interested.plain and simple
Thats the lesson the tristate group heads found out during the phone campaign.

Of course we don’t have the right to vote but we have the right to support the candidates, Isn’t it? Help support the Presidential Candidate who will hear your voice and make newer laws. This will hit head lines!

We can activaate this chapter. Please help spread awareness and try to get more people in the chapter.

Well said - I know when the Indian Movie Sivaji released all these folks drove for hours together to watch the movie.

But from what I understand - the issue here seems to be sheer ignorance of the basic understanding of the issue and nothing else. Many have not taken this issue seriously - they have not understood the complexity of this issue.

Look at the July filings - 300K filings - phenomenal, but look at ralliers - compared to the numbers that filed
