A bit of Juggalo-inspired art spotted this morning in Washington, D.C.

As we announced several months ago, Insane Clown Posse spearheaded a Juggalo March on Washington to be held at noon Sept. 13 at the National Mall. It's a bit of political activism in response to the FBI categorizing the following of the rap-rock-duo’s devotees as a “loosely organized hybrid gang.” ICP later sued the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI to have the classification removed. Psychopathic Records and its legal team, along with the assistance of the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan, have been fighting to clear the Juggalo name via the judicial system for several years now. That's why they organized a march on Washington, D.C.: to clear their Faygo-soaked good name.

Well, it's happening right now. And we'll be posting pictures of it, and any updates we received from family in the field, as the day goes on. So far, the protest seems to be orderly, and with plenty of home-grown art and signs from those who are down with the clowns. MMFCL!

UPDATE — 3:49 p.m.: For those who were curious about the Trump protesters who chose the same day to arrive in Washington, D.C., the two protests are actually pretty far apart from each other. Correspondent Chad Carsten reports that they're "probably a 20-minute walk from us."
