Students are seen handing out pamphlets at San Francisco State College and there is a press statement by African-American students regarding the importance of the strike. Students are also featured chanting "power to the people!" Police are shown crowding by the entrance to the Administration Building. After a student speaks to crowds in front of the building, a rock is thrown through a window. Students shout: "pigs off campus!" at police. There are views of student protesters milling around campus. President Hayakawa is heard over the public address system asking students to disperse. He is seen waving pamphlets on top of the sound truck and being mobbed when he gets off. Someone grabs his hat and he is lost from view in a crush of students shouting "on strike, shut it down!" Ends with a besieged Hayakawa on the sound truck, being drowned out by chanting protesters.
