The Cliven Bundy family is rallying its allies who were present at the standoff with the Bureau of Land Management and urging them to file criminal complaints against the federal agency.

The Nevada rancher’s family announced in a post on its Facebook page that it would go Friday to the Clark County Sheriff Office to file a criminal complaint.

“If you were with us at any of the events the week of April 5-12, when the BLM was threatening us all, we encourage you to join us and file a Criminal Report with the Clark County Sheriffs office,” the post, which is credited to Bundy’s wife Carol, said.

Though the Bundy family is going at 10 a.m. PT on Friday, the Facebook post noted that “The Clark County Sheriffs office is open daily 8am-4pm and you can
file your Criminal Report anytime.”

The Bundy family appears to have a long list of grievances of the BLM. As listed in the Facebook post, they are:

Men blocking access to public land
Men blocking public roads
Men harassing people for taking photos
Men impersonating Police officers
Men claiming to be a police officer and refusing to show valid identification
Men threatening to use Tasers
Men threatening to fire upon unarmed civilians
Men using attack dogs
Men pointing weapons
