Anti-apartheid protest, 1970

Scenes like this are strongly associated with the protests surrounding the 1981 Springbok tour. But many people actively opposed earlier sporting contact with South Africa. Here anti-apartheid demonstrators are held back by police in the grounds of Parliament as the 1970 All Black team leaves after a parliamentary farewell. This was the first tour of South Africa for which Māori were selected. The catch was that they were classified as ‘honorary whites’ for the duration.
