Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -

Climbing the steps of City Hall, Members of the Supreme White Alliance were met with pure anger.

The chant NAZI's out, among others rang through out the vacant, snow covered streets of Downtown Duluth.

The group trying to protest their interpretation of the Un-fair Campaign as reverse racism flanked by Duluth SWAT members never got a word out and for the protesters...they say accomplished their goal.

"We are standing beyond the fear...we are sending a positive message just by showing up and being here"

"I'm really glad this is happening. I know that some people in town are going with the ignore them and have an event else where...to me that's not an option"

Some in attendance, supportive of the swarm of Northland Protesters, feel this approach, direct confrontation doesn't deliver in creating a solution.

"You have one opinion, that differs from another. I don't think there's going to be any solution or resolution happening between the two sides"

According to authorities, two men in their late 20's from Minneapolis, one 22-year-old man from Iron River, WI; and a 25-year-old woman from Duluth were taken into custody for disorderly conduct.

All were booked and released except for one of the men, who was held on an unrelated warrant.

Police officials say no injuries were reported at the rally, and a police presence was not required at an of the other events.
