KTVU News report from January 1969 at San Francisco State College by Claud Mann. He reports from the roof of the Library Building, commenting there have been no mass rallies today. Mann interviews Roger Alvarado who feels that labor unions have adopted a racist position with regard to the Bay Area’s Third World people, by excluding the Third World Liberation Front's (TWLF) 15 Demands as part of their negotiations on grievances. There are views of arrests on campus, President S.I. Hayakawa gives a press conference in which he says it would be a “tragedy” if students lost a whole semester’s work because of the strike and Mann delivers an editorial on AFT picket lines. Ends with scenes of picketing and riot police on 19th Avenue.
