Several armed men have occupied a building on an Oregon wildlife refuge, protesting the prison terms of two ranchers convicted of arson on public lands.
The Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, OR—one of the more remote federal outposts in the country—was the destination of a march supporting Dwight and Steven Hammond, two ranchers who claim the government is persecuting them because they wouldn’t sell their land. The two men face 5 years in prison.
