Union Square Rally

About This Item

A KQED report from Union Square in downtown San Francisco featuring a pro Samuel Hayakawa rally. The college president's supporters enjoy live music from the Red Garter band and struggle to speak over the shouts of anti-Hayakawa protesters. Bitter disputes erupt among the crowd between rival factions, as they try to drown each other out. Strikers chant: "on strike, shut it down!" and "no racist law!" One old woman spits: "go to work!" in reply. There are also a number of interviews with bystanders who express their differing opinions. This contains excellent footage which is clearly intended to portray the student unrest as being a divisive social issue.
