National Farm Strike Poster, 1977

Notes
The Jefferson County (Georgia) Office of American Agriculture supported the American Agricultural Movement, which was organized to preserve the family farm system and to seek 100% parity for all agricultural products. The strike resulted when farmers' demands were not met by midnight, December 13, 1977. The strike subsided by March 1978 without the farmers accomplishing their goals.
