Indian Support Press Conference (Updated over a year ago)
KPIX news report from a press conference outside the Mission Area Community Action Center in San Francisco, on December 15th 1969. A spokesman points out, in support of the occupation of Alcatraz, that: "The American people … likes a problem which it can solve as easily as it can by letting the Indians have a piece of land which we haven't known any particular good use for anyway." Ends with another activist contending that the Federal government should be happy to turn over surplus land to the Indians, for the purpose of education and vocational training.
