CLEVELAND (AP) - A group of activists is planning a rally in support of a ballot issue that would ban red-light cameras in the city of Cleveland.

The group calling itself the Camera Removal Team plans the demonstration Tuesday afternoon at an intersection on the city’s east side, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group (https://bit.ly/1p8mfOA ).

The group says it will be joined by members of Black on Black Crime Inc. and Liberate Ohio, a non-partisan political action committee that promotes the local ballot issue process.

Group representatives say the red-light camera program deprives those who receive citations of their due process rights.

The city council voted last month to approve the issue for the ballot after more than 13,000 people signed petitions.
