12:15 - Be outside Downing Street. 1 hour protest.
1:15pm - Coffee/toilet break for 30mins
2pm - Be at Trafalgar Square. 1 hour protest.

Finish at 3:45pm

Then drinkypoos and celebratory hugs after that. :-)

We do ask that you wear a wedding dress, suit or cultural wear to grab peoples attention. We want people walking past to stop and ask why we are dressed this way and thats when we can get talking and educate people as to why we are campaigning. It doesnt have to be a big wedding dress ladies but something white (a maxi dress is a comfy choice) and a cheap veil from a charity shop will do nicely. Alternatively, wear all white to symbolise the white feather.

Can you please make and bring your own placards too. Hobby craft sell stiff foam board for £3 each. Make them as personal as possible, paste photos of you and your spouse and your children, wedding photos and family days out. We need people to see that our spouses are not just another foreigner in the UK, but part of a family unit. 



Download, put your names on, and SHARE SHARE SHARE!

The idea is that every couple can download this pic and re-upload with their own names on. Even if you can't make it in person - even if you're not in the country - this is still a demo for you. Once you have a version with your name on (or those of a couple you're supporting, you can share it on Facebook, Twitter, emails to friends and family... let people know this is an action FOR YOU and for all the other loving couples kept apart by the Home Office.

Hope to see you there.
