WHAT IS THE GARBAGE FYRE FESTIVAL?

The Garbage Fyre Festival is what we are dubbing the week long hate fest put on by OPERATION SAVE AMERICA (OSA).  OSA is invading Milwaukee JULY 13-20 and we need to rally together to let them know their messages of intolerance are not welcome in Wisconsin. 

OPERATION SAVE AMERICA IS KNOWN AS ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL HATE GROUPS IN AMERICA.

Each July, hundreds of OSA members from around the country gather in a specific city to spend a week disrupting a community with massive public parades and rallies promoting their anti-choice, anti LGBTQ, and anti- immigrant messages. Their vile imagery and chants of intolerance have inspired progressive activists from Wisconsin and around the country to gather and counter their bigotry and misogyny. Through direct actions, comedy and burlesque shows, we want to put out the Garbage Fyre with messages of love and inclusion. Click our Take Action tab to sign up to get more info and join us!

Spoiler alert – it’s garbage!

They bring their masses to protest in parks and at historic landmarks.  They target houses of worship that welcome LGBTQ communities. And they relentlessly accost people seeking abortion care at reproductive health centers.
