Help me organize a "picket line" at a local airport about the new TSA security policies.

The specific cause is to show disapproval of the new invasive pat-downs and back-scatter X-ray machines. I think that the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) would be good since there is media attention on airport delays already and people off-work could participate. I am hoping the picket line itself can show public outrage without causing travel delays. Important goals for me are safety, positive attention, and getting a sizable crowd. I am thinking about contacting people who have spoke out in the news (pilots, upset travellers) to attend the event. I have previously heard of flight attendants picketing at the airport. What permits do I need? How can I get more people to attend the event?
