Couple Quietly Protests Bundy Militia Standoff

While many news stories have focused on the story of the Bundy Militia standing against the government in an effort to return Malheur National Wildlife Refuge back to state hands, one couple is quietly protesting the militia.

A couple, who identifies themselves as Candy Henderson and Jay are there to try to put an end to the armed occupiers. On Facebook, Kieran Suckling, the Executive Director for the Center for Biological Diversity, wrote “Each night, these two camp in the rain and snow. Each morning, they wake up, warm up, and go down the road to protest the Bundy militia’s daily press conference. They won’t leave until the militants do, they say.”

Suckling went on to write “They are here, they say, because our laws and public land deserve the dignity and protection of people standing up peacefully yet forcefully against those who would steal them at gunpoint. I love these people. We offered them a warm room at our hotel, but they declined, saying that the land needed people who love it to be present at all times.”

On Facebook, Suckling also wrote "We believe that is what Martin Luther King, Jr. would do. We must bear witness to this great injustice and show the militia thugs that America won’t be scared away from its public lands by guns and threats."
