The Vrije Veluwse Boeren (Free Farmers from the Veluwe), with farmer Hendrik Koekoek and the secretary of his organisation E.J. Harmsen, block the national highway Zwolle-Apeldoorn near Vaassen, to protest against the taxes from the agricultural board. The police clears the road armed with carbines and advancing armoured cars prevent the farmers from going to Epe to obstruct the visit of Queen Juliana to the fourth division. The protest was started in sympathy with farmer Koekoek, of whom a part of his land was taken into possession beacause he refused to pay the agricultural boards taxes.
