USA: "We will not give up" says Oregon militia as occupation continues

United States, Burns
January 13, 2016 at 22:04 GMT +00:00 · Published

An armed militia continued to occupy Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon, Wednesday. One of the group's leaders, rancher Aamon Bundy remained adamant that the militia "will not give up" until their needs are met.

Bundy said that he aims to "get to the truth, to expose the truth, to relieve the Hammonds from the suffering that has been upon them." Another rancher, Chris Briels, announced that "people in this county, in this state, in these United States, have the right to free speech, and the right to assemble" and according to him, it is also their right "if there is a problem" to figure out "what can be done about it."

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy's three sons - Ammon, Ryan, and Mel - alongside around 150 militia members have been illegally occupying a federal building in eastern Oregon last Saturday, in an attempt to keep two local ranchers from going to prison. The group seized the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge headquarters, located around 50 miles (80 km) from Burns, after two of its members were scheduled to go to prison on January 4 for setting fire to federal land.

The siege came after some 300 people marched through Burns protesting the prosecution of county ranchers Hammonds.
