BURNS, Ore. (AP) - Four people occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge continued to hold their position Saturday and posted live videos that reveal their hyper-vigilance against any federal officials who may try to move them out.
During one early morning video posted by a man identified as David Fry, the occupiers express concerns about nearby aircraft and Fry gets jumpy when he believes he hears gunshots near the entrance.
"False alarm," he soon says as he realizes the noise came from a generator or some other type of equipment.
"We're not dead yet," he says, repeating a theme that he and others have expressed through the weeks of the occupation. They've said they will only leave if given immunity from prosecution and are ready to die defending their position.
A husband and wife who are among the four holdout occupiers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge say in a speakerphone conversation with a man who appears to be an attorney that was broadcast on YouTube that they are hoping for a miraculous end to the standoff with federal authorities.
Sean Anderson, who is at the site with his wife, Sandy, and two others, says: "We're waiting for our miracle. If this doesn't wake America up, I don't know what will."
Sean Anderson, who is from Riggins, Idaho, goes on to say that he and the other occupiers are heroes.
"Think about the Bible and all the heroes came from the bottom. We were just four drunks, we don't have any military experience, and now we're the shining stars," he said.
At one point in the broadcast, Sandy Anderson says: "It's either all of us out or all of us dead."
Sean Anderson said he and the others want authorities to give them immunity from prosecution before they will leave the site. He asks the lawyer to "start making phone calls and get us amnesty."
