Here Are the Best Images From Today's Juggalo March in Washington

Juggalos set to march on Washington, DC on Saturday

Insane Clown Posse, Juggalos to march on Washington to fight gang distinction

The two most prominent events will be the pro-Trump "free speech" rally dubbed by organizers as The Mother of All Rallies (MOAR) and the Insane Clown Posse's Juggalo March to protest the Federal Bureau of Investigation's characterization of the rap-rock group's fan base as a "hybrid gang".

"At this point, it's time for everyone to put up or shut up". By Juggalos' accounts, this has led to discrimination at work and society at large. Then be there. Live. "Live and let live man, I'm a regular citizen, I pay my taxes", said Scott Creel, an imposing figure with a long beard who was pierced from head to toe and who had travelled from the southern state of Arkansas.

In 2011, the FBI's Gang Threat Assessment called Juggalos a "loosely organized hybrid gang" due to reports of crimes allegedly committed by people with clothes and tattoos that identified them as Juggalos.

The fanatic fans are "forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity".

The rap duo has developed an intensely devoted fan base over the course of a 25-year career, and some fans held signs that said, "Music is Not a Crime".

Juggalos spray sticky-sweet, cheap soda on each other and sing along to the Posse's hip-hop lyrics, which sound like a profane, pornographic and violent Alfred E. Neuman took crystal meth and stole the microphone. How would anybody fight the gang label? They say Juggalos are a family of outcasts, not a gang.

"The FBI's mission is to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution. The FBI can not initiate an investigation based on an individual's exercise of their First Amendment rights", it said. Another plaintiff, Brandon Bradley, claims to have been repeatedly stopped, questioned and photographed by police in California for wearing Juggalo clothing and having a Juggalo tattoo.

I am in full support of @icp and the #juggalomarch The FBI should remove the gang tag immediately. The author, Nathan Rabin, told NPR back in 2013 that "for 360 days, being a Juggalo makes them an outcast and makes them reviled and makes them a pariah".

"If they can get away with this, if they can do this, what's next?" Roughly 3,000 people will attend the event, the National Park Service estimated.

Protesters march from the White House to the Russian ambassador's residence in Washington, Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017, during a rally encouraging President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan to defend American democracy from Russian interference. Another one for Trump supporters, called the Mother of All Rallies, was scheduled.

"They listed Juggalos as equals alongside highly risky and elaborate global criminal organizations like the Crips, the Bloods and MS-13", said Kevin Gill, a Juggalo and podcast host who kicked off the rally. "MOAR will send a message to the world that the voices of mainstream Americans must be heard". These values, along with face paint, macabre imagery, greeting each other with "whoop whoop", and a love of the midwest root beer Faygo, are core elements of the Juggalo subculture.

"No Confederate flags, communist flags, or foreign flags allowed".
