Pipfruit protest

Pipfruit protest

Since 1921, when fireblight disease was found in New Zealand apples, Australia has banned importation of the fruit. Since 1986, New Zealand has tried to have the ban lifted because studies have found that no commercially traded apples carry fireblight. However, Australia has continued its ban. These apple growers are protesting outside Parliament in Wellington in June 2005.
