A group of protesters and purported militiamen remained in a federal building at an Oregon wildlife refuge Sunday night, a day after they occupied it and vowed to stay indefinitely to highlight ranchers’ rights.

The standoff came after so-called “militia members” converged on the small town of Burns to show support for a pair of ranchers jailed on an arson conviction, according to NBC station KTVZ of Bend.

After a march and rally there, a small group then took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge headquarters about 60 miles away.
