As the White activists began to speak, they were met with yells and were unable to continue their speeches. Counter-protesters began throwing snowballs at the White activists; FOX21 says four counter-protesters were reportedly arrested. Eventually, the White activists were escorted into City Hall by police officers, although counter-protesters stayed on the west steps of City Hall until around 11:30 A.M.
The rally was in opposition to the Un-Fair Campaign, which has targeted Whites as being exclusively responsible for racism. Many local White people expressed opposition to the campaign in various discussion venues. There was also organized non-racialist opposition to the Un-Fair Campaign by Phil Pierson, who created the "STOP Racist Unfair Campaign" Facebook page (must be a Facebook member to view) to mobilize further action, but he got cold feet and was worried more about being perceived as "racist". None of them bothered to stand with the SWA activists or even organize their own opposition rally. So now, because only eight people publicly rallied against the Un-Fair Campaign, Un-Fair will likely claim that they are gaining further support.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
