Serviced Bus New Freedom Bus delayed. The bus was serviced and repaired after being without heat for 36 hours. This delayed the arrival of the freedom riders in Kansas.

The bus arrived late Thursday night in McPherson Kansas and spent the night in the 4H center. Special thanks to Emil Mushrush and Valeda Larson for a preparing and coordinating a homemade meal and to the rest of the Kansas Farmers Union for their hospitality, flexibility and generosity.

Daryl Larson greeted the Freedom Riders early Friday morning before he began work that day. Daryl is the president of the Mc Pherson County Farmer's Union, which has 100 members. He spoke about some of the issues effecting farmers and recapped some of the topics discussed at the Union's meeting the night before

Most farmers farm during the day and work a second shift in the factory to make ends meet.

Most independent farmers must provide their own health insurance and pay extremely high premiums or risk going without health insurance.

Equipment and maintenance costs continue to increase yet farmers are still being paid the same amount of money for their wheat crop as they got in 1940.

Thursday the House of Representatives voted against a bill that would have provided disaster relief money to farmers who were effected by last seasons drought.

Farmers discussed the possibility of a corporate dairy farm moving into McPherson County. The farm with 3,500 cattle would create environmental and pollution concerns.

The New Freedom Bus Tour is traveling across the United States for a month bringing attention to communities struggling for Economic Human Rights.

A diverse group representing organizations of the poor from across the country is carrying the message of Economic Human Rights around the country and, on December 12th, to the United Nations in New York city

The Bus tour is gathering documention of economic human rights violations occuring in the United States to update our petition charging the US government with human rights violations against its citizens.
