Insane Clown Posse Plans Juggalo March on Washington to Protest FBI
Insane Clown Posse's Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope first announced a "Juggalo March" during last summer's Gathering of the Juggalos. They plan on going forward with it on September 16th.
The FBI named Juggalos, the diehard fans of ICP, a "a loosely organized hybrid gang" in a 2011 Gang Task Force report. Basically that means members could face legal repercussions if they're ever in trouble with the law.
ICP filed lawsuits in response, but all were dismissed. "We have tried to use the American judicial system to achieve justice and we failed. So on Saturday, September 16, 2017, we are taking out fight to the streets. Literally."
A concert will follow at the Jiffy Lube Live amphitheater with Insane Clown Posse, 2 Live Crew, Vanilla Ice and many others performing.
To be sure, this is NOT a party, Gathering of the Juggalos, or a frivolous social event. This march is a serious, peaceful public demonstration, organized for one purpose -- to deliver a message to the world showing how Juggalos have been unfairly stigmatized and discriminated against simply for identifying as being part of a particular music-based subculture. The golden rule of the march for participants is simply this: If you're not serious about being there, just stay home.
