A key role of co-ops was to buy fertilizer and supplies collectively in bulk to get them for cheaper prices than buying then individually. Alliances could agree and unite because of the problems with low farm prices, high transportation costs and an overall problem with the financial system of America.

Alliances identified farmers’ problems, unified them, and made an effort to fix them. 7. What did the National Alliance do in Ocala, Florida? What was the Ocala Platform?

The Ocala Platform or the Ocala Demands were economic and political reforms that were adopted by the People’s Party in the future.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
