Galice Mining District on the situation in Harney County, Oregon

Mainstream media are currently reporting that a group of individuals led by members of the Bundy Family have taken over the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County and possibly other federal buildings in the vicinity of Burns, Oregon.

While the Galice Mining District understands that many people are frustrated with the total lawlessness of federal agencies such as the BLM, USFS, NPS and others and we will continue to endorse active resistance against agency over reach, we do not support any action that is apparently only designed to inflame the agencies to use lethal force against The People or to detract from the plight of the Hammond Family.

The duly elected Executive Committee of the Galice Mining District hereby instructs all miners within this organized district, as well as miners elsewhere, to remain calm, to maintain their righteous position under the Mining Law and to not be led astray by the agenda of others who do not appear to be interested in maintaining a righteous position.
