Authorities are dealing with 150 heavily armed militiamen who have occupied a Federal building in the state of Oregon, USA.

The militia accuses government authorities of a failed legal process concerning two locals farmers convicted of arson.

Both farmers were charged under the anti-terrorism law. Protesters are calling on “American Patriots” to join them and stand up against the government.

Among those joining Bundy in the occupation are Ryan Payne, U.S. Army veteran, and Blaine Cooper. Payne has claimed to have helped organize militia snipers to target federal agents in a standoff last year in Nevada. He told one news organization the federal agents would have been killed had they made the wrong move.
