The organizer of “Justice for J6” rally, which is scheduled for September 18, has demanded the participants not to bear pro-Trump signs, arguing that the event is “100% about #JusticeforJ6 and not the election or any candidate.”

“We request that anybody attending our events not wear any clothing or have signs supportive of either President Trump or Biden,” Matt Braynard wrote on his twitter page.

“Anyone not honoring this request will be assumed to be an infiltrator and we will take your picture, find out who you are, and make you famous,” he added.

Meanwhile, the US Capitol police is working to beef up defenses around its premises to prevent another incident like Jan. 6.

The measures reportedly involve returning the fence surrounding the US Capitol.

"The fence will go up a day or two before, and if everything goes well it will come down very soon after," Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger told reporters.

However, it is not clear yet how threatening the rally was assessed to be by lawmakers and police protecting the premises.

"They seemed very, very well prepared — much better prepared than before Jan. 6. I think they're ready for whatever might happen," said Senate top Democrat Charles Schumer.

A large number of the former US President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the US Capitol on Jan. 6 this year as the US Congress was meeting to certify Joe Biden’s presidential election victory.

About 600 people have been arrested in connection with the attack, with analysts describing it as the worst violence since the British invasion during the 1812 War.
