Followers of the hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse — known as Juggalos — held a march Saturday on the National Mall, alleging discrimination after the FBI labeled the group a gang in a 2011 report.“We’re different. We’re not dangerous,” Kevin Gill, who is an announcer for a Juggalo wrestling league, said from the rally stage. “Music is not a crime.”

This Twitter thread is an amazing commentary on the march. https://twitter.com/ddale8/status/909159295522045953

There was a Trump Rally going on at the same time.
Neither this nor the Richmond event had any umph.

The Trump Rally was YUGE!

What would prompt the FBI to label these people a gang?

There are actually three marches going on. Trump supporters are at the capital mall and the Juggalos are at the reflective pool. There is a third group but I'm not sure what section they were given.

Only a couple hundred Trump supporters showed up that may be why some think it is just a Juggalo gathering.
