Includes scenes of demonstrators making speeches, singing and large crowds chanting: "Free Angela; Jail Nixon!" One spokeswoman takes the press on a guided tour of the Santa Clara county administration buildings, pointing out a security fence they had demanded be torn down. She explains: "This is part of the whole thing of trying to portray the image of Angela as a dangerous woman. As a threat to society, who has to be locked up."
