The Million Muslim March on D.C., also known as the Million American March Against Fear, had a small turnout of a few dozen individuals who showed to listen to speakers calling out for social justice. The group was far outnumbered by an estimated 880,000 bikers who drove across the country to ride into Washington, D.C., on 9/11. The bikers began their trip as a protest against the Million Muslim March, calling themselves the 2 Million Bikers. The Muslim group took out a permit for their event, listing the potential number of attendees at 1,000. Speakers at the rally called out for proper treatment of Muslims in the United States while promoting peace and drawing a hard line against all forms of violence. Some speakers took up topics that were described as "on the fringe," such as the use of U.S. tax money going towards the killing of innocents in the Middle East. The 2 Million Bikers group initially requested a permit for their protest against the Muslim rally and to remember the events of 9/11. The city turned down the request, but D.C. law makes it legal for large groups to assemble or parade on streets and the public way, meaning the bikers broke no laws.
