KRON-TV news footage from March 10, 1975 with reporter Jack Bates featuring scenes from San Francisco State's campus, where students disrupt a class called "Issues and Advocacy," that was to include an address by American Nazi leader Alan Vincent. Includes: views of Professor Ted Keller arguing with a student and talking to reporters; a press conference by Alan Vincent; views of students chanting in a classroom, following the Nazis down a corridor in the Humanities Building and scuffling outside, before the Nazis attack a man using a fire extinguisher and head off in a van along 19th Avenue. Ends with voice-over from Bates, which was not added to the moving images in order to preserve ambient sounds from the action. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
