KTVU News report from December 1968 at San Francisco State College by Claud Mann featuring scenes of picketing, demonstrations and distributing food to protesters on 19th Avenue. One news cameraman is shown wearing a crash helmet in anticipation of trouble. There is a brief glimpse of President S.I. Hayakawa giving a press conference followed by views of a neon sign outside the Hub Adult Theatre in downtown San Francisco, which reads: “Give SF State radicals their own campus on Alcatraz! Dear TAC squad: sock it to em!” Ends with demonstrators (including Dr. Carlton Goodlett) on campus chanting: “On strike, shut it down!”
