January 12, 1130am, join for a rally to Unite Against Fascism. We will be meeting at the top of State St, across from the Capitol, at 30 on the Square.
On January 12, far-right groups are planning a “We the People” rally to be held at the Wisconsin state capitol, on the State Street steps. The organizers of this rally include the 3% United Patriots.
The 3% United Patriots is a right-wing militia group that has been organizing armed vigilante squads at the US-Mexico border for years. They detain people crossing the border, handcuffing them and delivering them to US Border Patrol. They’ve since spread across the country.
The far right has been exploding in growth since the election of Donald Trump. The murder in Charlottesville at the “Unite the Right” rally and the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue are two of the most visible attacks, but they are not the only ones. Hate crimes have skyrocketed, pipe bombs were sent through the mail, and others were stabbed to death on a train in Portland and at a bus stop in Boston. Far right groups like Patriot Prayer, the Proud Boys, and the 3%ers have grown in membership and influence.
We are organizing to stop their hate, their racism, sexism, and xenophobia. We are joining together to show that fascism and hate have no home here, and that people from across Wisconsin stand against them.
If you are a part of an organization or group that would like to sponsor, endorse, or help organize, please reach out to the hosts to get in touch.
