February 14, 2012 Updated Feb 14, 2012 at 4:30 PM CST

Duluth, MN (Northland’s NewsCenter) --- Social media is buzzing with news that a group of white supremacists may be coming to Duluth to protest the Unfair Campaign.

The White Supremacist web site “stormfront.org” says there are plans for a pro-white rally at the Duluth Civic Circle by Duluth City Hall on March 3rd beginning at 10 a.m.

None of this information is confirmed but news of a pro-white rally has spread rapidly on Facebook and through other social media.

According to the Duluth City Parks and Recreation Department and the City Clerk's Office, no permits have been filed for the rally. And City Attorney Gunner Johnson and Duluth Police confirm they have not received a permit for a pro-white rally.

But in October through November Occupy Duluth conducted a sit in at the Civic Circle without a permit.

The Unfair Campaign triggered angry emails from self proclaimed white supremacists to Duluth Mayor Don Ness when it was first unveiled .

We’ll have more information on the potential white supremacist rally and reaction from leaders of the Unfair Campaign coming up tonight at 5.
