Insane Clown Posse are ready to official embark on the Juggalo March on Washington this year, which the hip-hop duo previously announced at last summer's Gathering of the Juggalos festival. “We have tried to use the American judicial system to achieve justice and we failed,” the march’s website states. “So on Saturday, September 16, 2017, we are taking our fight to the streets. Literally.”
The purpose of the march is to protest FBI and the Department of Justice, who labeled Juggalos as a "loosely organized hybrid gang" in 2014. The ICP and four Juggalos then filed a lawsuit against the government agency that was later dismissed. The website continues,
“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.”
After the event, fans can enjoy a free concert thrown by ICP that will feature 2 Live Crew, Vanilla Ice and more in Bristow, VA. The Juggalo March on Washington plans to begin at noon at Lincoln Memorial and wrap around the Washington Monument.
