Downtown Protests & Press Conferences

About This Item

KPIX Eyewitness News report by Mike Lee opening with rooftop views of riot police making arrests on campus at SF State College followed by a press conference by the TWLF, who claim that President S.I. Hayakawa is wasting tax payers money by calling the police on campus to deal with student protests. A TWLF spokesman refers to authorities as the slave master and tells reporters the battleground will be temporarily moved over to the Standard Oil refinery in support of oil workers there. There are scenes of picketing on 19th Avenue and outside the San Francisco Hall of Justice, where police make several arrests and Terry Hallinan gives an interview inside expressing his belief that laws regulating unlawful assembly were used in an unconstitutional fashion to curb freedom of speech rallies at SF State. Ends with brief glimpses of students being arraigned on-stage by a judge in groups.
