Pipfruit protest

Pipfruit protest

In 1921, when fireblight disease was found in New Zealand apples, Australia banned importation of the fruit. From 1986, New Zealand tried to have the ban lifted as studies found that no commercially traded apples carried fireblight. Australia continued its ban until 2011. These apple growers are protesting outside Parliament in Wellington in 2005.
