Press conferences at SF State and the black community
The Associated Students of San Francisco State College hold a press conference. They urge student to continue supporting the strike and confirm anyone suspended or expelled by administration whilst doing so will retain their Associated Student membership rights. Speakers from the black community (including Ron Dellums and Cecil Williams) address a crowd outside, emphasizing they are united in their demands that the college be shut down. Men and women address the crowd, including a man demanding that the Filipino community should be recognized. There are confused scenes of a black spokesperson trying to quell an angry crowd and of students marching and chanting "on strike, shut it down." A group of white students shout "keep it open!" and are cordoned off from other protesters by the riot police. A member of the Japanese-American community tells the crowd that Hayakawa does not speak for them and a student condemns the presence of the San Francisco Tactical Squad on campus.
