Stand for Peace rallies in Duluth

December 13, 2013 Updated Dec 13, 2013 at 6:52 PM CST

Duluth, Minn. (NNCNOW.com) -- People rallied in Duluth on Friday for three people who are in jail for what the government believes was an act of terrorism.

In July of 2012, three people including a Duluthian, were arrested for protesting inside a nuclear weapons production complex in Tennessee.

They will be sentenced on January 28 for charges that imply they were acting as terrorists when the group says they were simply demonstrating non–violently.

Friday's rally hopes to bring awareness of the definition of terrorism under the law.

There will be a letter writing event on Saturday at the Central Hillside community center.

The letters will go to the US District Court judge to encourage him to set the three people free.
