KPIX's Mike Lee reports from Burney Office Building in Shasta County, Northern California, on October 9th 1970. There are (silent) views of the surrounding countryside and inside the Office Building, where a group of Pit River Indians are on trial accused of trespassing on PG&E property. The Indian's attorney claims: "These defendents could not have committed a crime because they sincerely believe it is their land and they have no criminal intent." Another Indian spokesman goes on to describe how local corporations may be: "Willing to support us in our fight against the Federal government for return of lands."
