May 3, 1932 fought foreclosures, sometimes by blocking the roads and physically preventing a sheriff


http://nhlabornews.com/2015/05/may-3-1932/



The National Farmersí Holiday Association (FHA) is founded by Milo Reno, former president of the Iowa Farmersí Union. The FHA fought foreclosures, sometimes by blocking the roads and physically preventing a sheriff from selling a farmerís home and land. Other times, they held penny auctions, where everyone refused to bid more than a few pennies for the farm. The farm would then be given back to its original owner with no debt and the bank would only be a few cents richer.

1. How quickly folks forget the socialist history

in this country. This summer I have a feeling we will revisit some of it. Thanks for posting these.
