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.
