USA: Cliven Bundy speaks in public for first time since charges against him dropped

Around 200 people gathered to greet Cliven Bundy and his son Ryan to speak at public event in Paradise, Montana, on Saturday, for the first time since all charges of leading an armed standoff against them were dismissed. The event was held in the historic Old Paradise School Gym with both father and son Cliven and Ryan giving speeches during a four hour event. The meeting was also attended by... Еще the Montana State Senator Jennifer Fielder. People, including the Bundy family and Fielder, made speeches condemning government overreach. Bundy was accused of fueling the standoff when in 2014 he led an armed protest against Bureau of Land Management agents attempting to round up his cattle for not paying cattle grazing fees on federal land. His sons, Ryan and Ammon, were later accused of leading the armed occupation of a national wildfire refuge two years later. The judge later dropped all the charges, criticising the prosecutors for violating the rights of defendants.
