A rally by a white supremacist group on the steps of Duluth City Hall, found opponents who threw snowballs at the group.
The confrontation began around 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning in a steady snow, reported the Duluth News Tribune.
The two groups met and the confrontation was mostly verbal, but members of the counter-protest group began throwing snowballs and both groups began jostling each
Four members from the opposition group were arrested on disorderly conduct charges, reported the Star Tribune. Three were released and the fourth was held on an unrelated warrant.
The Supreme White Alliance group was protesting the Un-fair anti-racism campaign that began in January to bring attention to racial inequalities with sayings like "It's hard to see racism when you're white."
By 11 a.m the group was escorted into the City Hall and walked through the building and then outside to where they had parked their cars.
Once the group had gone inside, an Occupy Duluth protester began an impromptu speech about the white supremacists that exist in every day life.
One man reiterated the idea the white supremacist group had, that the problem was the campaign, and another person shouted at him for spewing hatred.
A small scuffle broke out, but turned into a peaceful discussion between 6 or 7 people.
