KQED News report featuring a demonstration outside the San Jose Courthouse from February 14th 1972, in support of Angela Davis during her trial on charges of conspiracy, kidnapping and homicide. 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."
