Next fall, the Juggalos will head to our nation’s capital.
At the annual Gathering of the Juggalos festival this past weekend in Thornville, Ohio, Insane Clown Posse’s Joe “Violent J” Bruce announced that his group and its fans will take to Washington, D.C. to combat the FBI’s declaration of Juggalos as a threat to society.
“In 2017, the weekend of September 17, we need you,” Bruce told the crowd, via Detroit News. “We’re gonna do a [expletive] march on Washington… They call the Juggalo World a movement, right? Well, let’s move!”
According to True Juggalo Family, 2017 has already been declared “The Year Of The Juggalo.”
The website also reports that the September march will reportedly begin at the Lincoln Memorial. It will then march down Constitution Boulevard, and conclude at the Washington Memorial, where there will be a free picnic. Guest speakers at the march will include Violent J, Shaggy 2 Dope, Jumpsteady and more, before everyone heads to “a huge Juggalo concert” at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia. True Juggalo Family reports that the concert will feature performances by the entire Psychopathic Records label, and other artists like Tech N9ne and Twiztid have been asked to perform as well.
“We are going to explain to the world who the [expletive] we really are,” Bruce said.
More from the Detroit News: “ICP has been entangled with the FBI since Juggalos were classified as a ‘loosely organized hybrid gang’ in the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment report. In 2014, ICP sued the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department over the designation, but the lawsuit was dismissed by a federal judge. ICP appealed the ruling, and won an appeal in an Ohio court in September 2015.”
