Story: Anti-racism and Treaty of Waitangi activism

Women against the 1981 tour (2nd of 2)

Women against the 1981 tour

Women's groups were prominent in the widespread protests against the 1981 Springbok tour of New Zealand. This poster, produced by Women Against the Tour, announces a march from Christchurch's Merivale Mall to Cathedral Square, to take place on 1 May 1981. That date was the second National Day of Action against the tour, organised nationally by Halt All Racist Tours (HART) to co-ordinate the efforts of numerous smaller and local protest groups.
