Pappu, I fully agree with every words you have said. This is a grass root effort. Unless each and every member is active, we cannot achieve our mission.

We are not doing any charity or social work here. Those of us who are active, I can assure on their behalf their continued committments "till they get their green cards". After that at least I don't care.

So the folks with late PD or in EB3 category should take a serious note of my words. If the laws are not changed, I would still get my GC because of my earlier PD but you are doomed.

So think and do yourselves a favor!

singhsa3, sorry to hear about your job. Thats not trivial!!! Only people like you can think that way. Personally, I'd have given more preference to first find a job and make sure I'd be able to pay monthly bills on time. Hats off to you brother!

And btw, if you are related to programming world and more specifically in Java, I can definately help. I work in a finance co. in NY and know theres one immediate position available. Please PM if you are interested.

I did send you a PM regarding NJ publicity. Respond whenever you get time, no rush.

mundada - my below replies are not intended towards you. Mainly for the people who fit in the buckets you laid out. thank you for your post.

People need to understand that receipt will come. Its just a matter of few weeks. But if we miss the rally, then getting GC would be matter of years... i repeat, YEARS.

That is true. But at least, speak up. Let IV know that you are coming. IV cannot magically find out how many from tri state area are planning to come for the rally. And more importantly, being an IV member, its everybody's responsibility not only just come for the rally, but also encourage others as well.

How long does it take to sign up at IV website and give your vote to the poll? Response is must at least to understand the head count. And that will surely encourage other members.

Why do you think the dates gonna change again? It was only one time when the rally date got postponed. After that I didnt see any post that gives any hint of possible postpone of the rally.

I know many who did not visit their places of worship when they were in their native country and have started visiting every weekend after coming to the USA.
If there are any other psychological reasons, IV really needs to hear about those. If there is any family emergancy(wife pregnant, etc.) or the project you are leading is being released to production on 18th sept. - those are genuine reasons. But not attending the rally just 'coz someone else is attending it for you - thats the sign of cowardness.

singsa3, sorry to hear about U'r job man. Hope U'll find a job soon.
We need to have atleast a few buses from tri-state area. Guys from Minnesota can find 1 bus full of people, its a shame that we are struggling to find people for 1 bus from tri-state.

Only 28 of us from NJ/NY/CT?

If you are voting "No" to the poll, would you be kind enough to post the reason as well? Let it be anything.. just go ahead and let us know why you don't want to participate in the rally.

GCNaseeb will become famous soon enough
Default I would like to take bus ride oneway from NJ

I am flying from San Jose and stay at my relative's place in NJ over the weekend. I will be taking a public transport from NJ to DC either on Monday night or early Tuesday morning. I am looking for a shared accommodation from Monday night until Tuesday Morning in DC. If anybody reserved any hotel accommodation, I can share the cost. I am also looking for shared ride back to Dulles Airport after the Rally.

First thing is to vote on this poll, which you already did!

Someone from Tri-state chapter will call you and get few details. Please complete your profile with the phone no. Thanks for planning on attending the rally!

Please do inform your friends and colleagues!

hopefully many people are not alone
guys please be in touch with the tri state chapter and please indicate how many travelers to help plan better. that way a second bus can start from a different location making everyone's life simpler....


i'm guessing the first bus is actually close to full with 36 members voting...
