Rally to Take Back Utah

Rally to Take Back Utah

Last Update: 8/08 6:05 pm

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A rally at Utah's State Capitol Saturday was designed to Take Back Utah.

People gathered were concerned about public land management. Specifically federal rules and regulations that threaten access to those lands.

"I think people are waking up across the country to this very type of thing," said Larry Sorrell. "I think they're waking up to the face that they're going to have to stand up and not be the silent majority anymore."

Both of Utah's Senators, Representative Rob Bishop, and Attorney General Mark Shurtleff all spoke at the rally.

The rally was reminiscent of the Sagebrush Rebellion of the 1970's and 1980's when county officials would take bulldozers and reopen roads on public lands that had been closed by the Bureau of Land Management.
