ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - It's Tax Day in Minnesota, and that means

protests aplenty.

Tea party rallies are planned in at least 10 cities to protest

taxes. That includes Brainerd, Duluth, Mankato, Milaca, Rochester,

Princeton and Winona.

The biggest rally is expected to be in St. Paul at the Capitol.

April 15 marks the day federal income tax returns are due. Toni

Backdahl, a statewide tea party coordinator, says protests could be

larger this year because of anger by some over the health care

overhaul.

The protesters may see counter-demonstrators. Backdahl says tea

party activists are planning to carry video cameras to document

anyone who tries to disrupt their protests.
