Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) -- In the 2012 election, voters in Minnesota will decide if marriage should only be between a man and woman.

Today, there was a demonstration against that constitutional amendment. Roughly 100 people rallied, and then marched through Downtown Minneapolis, calling for equality. They call same sex marriage, a human rights issue. Demonstrators know they have a fight on their hands in the year ahead and a heated debate.

Marty Redwing Roddy of Minneapolis says, “I’ve lived in Minnesota for 20 years, and the people of Minnesota are very fair. and i think we'll be the first state to defeat an amendment of this type."

Gay marriage is illegal in Minnesota. But again, this would be a constitutional amendment against it.
