USDA is meeting with farmers on Kentucky State University in Frankfort, KY. As of this writing, officials are trying to shove protesters to campus football stadium. Legal action pending

Harry Young is a black farmer whose land was sold in a contested auction 2 years ago. He and others say the foreclosure is part of a series of illegal land seizures affecting family farmers of all ethnicities. This is a teach in, an informational event designed to expose this atrocity in a peaceful, law abiding, constitutionally protected fashion. This will be the 3rd protest in Kentucky over this issue.
