BUNKERVILLE (KSNV — The Bureau of Land Management has said that it has dismantled the “First Amendment Zone” for protesters involved in the support of a rancher at odds with the government agency.

“In response to concerns raised about the location of areas designated for assembly, the public will be allowed to congregate on public lands as long as they are not in the closure areas, impeding the operation or jeopardizing the safety of the public or employees,” according to an email from the BLM office.

Rancher Cliven Bundy has been fighting a roundup of cattle by the BLM that he claims have historical grazing rights northeast of Las Vegas.

More than 350 cattle have been confiscated so far by the BLM.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
