The FBI negotiated with four armed occupants at a remote federal wildlife refuge in Oregon on Saturday while the holdouts in a video posted online expressed their mistrust of the government and reluctance to leave. One of the four protesters remaining at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge said in a darkly lit video posted on Friday that he wanted to be assured he would not be arrested if he left. Others with him expressed similar sentiments. Supporters staged a rally in the nearby ranching community of Burns on Saturday night. About 30 pick-up trucks and other vehicles honked horns and waved flags - U.S., Confederate and Gadsden - as they drove. Passing the courthouse, protesters yelled 'murderer' and 'FBI go home.' Mayor Craig LaFollette said the protesters were mostly outsiders who had disrupted the community, adding: 'We don't want them here.'
