Oregon Occupiers Say Their Phones, Internet Have Been Cut Off


After the group's leader, Ammon Bundy, was arrested last week along with numerous members of the militia, he called on the remaining occupiers to leave the refuge. However, a small group refuses to go home. They have said they will not leave until the FBI guarantees that they will not be arrested. Law enforcement has set up checkpoints outside of the refuge and will not allow media to enter, much to the occupiers' dismay, according to Oregon Public Broadcasting.

The remaining militiamen have issued a call to arms for their supporters, and an outside patriot group on Friday urged Americans to join the militia at the refuge to "air our grievances."
