FBI Seeks Peaceful Ending to Armed Standoff at Federal Building in Oregon

A march on Saturday to protest father-and-son ranchers who were convicted of arson has escalated to an armed occupation of a federal building in Oregon.

There’s just one problem: The protesters haven’t said what they want, CNN reports. 

Armed protesters took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge building near Burns.

“We will be here as long as it takes,” protest spokesman Ammon Bundy told CNN by phone from inside the refuge.

“We have no intentions of using force upon anyone, (but) if force is used against us, we would defend ourselves.”

Bundy is the son of Cliven Bundy, the rancher who instigated a standoff with federal authorities in Nevada.

“This is about taking the correct stand without harming anybody to restore the land and resources to the people so people across the country can begin thriving again,” he said.

Federal authorities said they are trying to avoid violence and so far have taken a patient approach.
