Bunkerville, NV (KTNV) -- Cliven Bundy supporters didn't pack up and leave town right after the Saturday's roundup came to an end.

Hundreds of protesters made their way back into the main camp site near Bunkerville, where a celebratory rally was held.

Ryan Bundy, Cliven Bundy's son, told Action News, "All that I can say is, 'Thank you, thank you, thank you, America, for being here for us.'"

Protester Bobby McKane said, "This is what America is about and what happened today is what should happen. This is the way we defend ourselves."

Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward spoke at the rally.

Ward said, "We don’t need the government to tell us what to eat, what to wear, what to drink [and] how to drive. We don’t need that. We can do a lot of self-governance."
