USA: 'LaVoy' Finicum slams incarceration of the Hammonds, govt. surveillance

United States, Burns
January 16, 2016 at 18:52 GMT +00:00 · Published

Robert 'LaVoy' Finicum, Arizona rancher, friend of Bundy family and fellow occupier of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon, called for the release of the Hammonds after 12 days in jail on Saturday.

LaVoy said that the Hammonds have been "ripped away from their families" before calling for them to be released. The Arizona rancher described the installation of cameras in and around the Bundy family's house as "unreasonable", adding that "the government comes in here setting up these cameras to surveil us sets up these cameras to surveil the citizens of Oregon County. And do you not get tired of the mass surveillance in this country?"

A small protest group gathered at the press statement condemning the occupation, holding placards adorned with slogans such as "Bundy it's time to migrate", "Stop Bundy land grab" and "Public land for all".

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy's three sons - Ammon, Ryan, and Mel - alongside around 150 militia members began occupying a federal building in eastern Oregon on Saturday January 2, in an attempt to keep two local ranchers (the Hammonds) from going to prison.

The siege came after some 300 people marched through Burns protesting the prosecution of county ranchers Hammonds. As noted by LaVoy, the Hammonds have now been incarcerated for 12 days.
