New Zealand South Africa Hamilton History

In this July 3, 1981 photo, anti-apartheid demonstrators march through Auckland, New Zealand to protest the tour of South Africa’s Springbok rugby union team. The tour had proceeded, in the face of bitter opposition from critics of South Africa’s system of apartheid or racial segregation; with the sanction of the New Zealand Rugby Union and government of then Prime Minister Robert Muldoon. Few of the players who will wear the New Zealand or South African jerseys in Saturday’s, Sept. 12, 2009, Tri-Nations rugby test at Hamilton directly remember the last visit by the Springboks to this sedate North Island city.(AP Photo/New Zealand Herald) ** NEW ZEALAND OUT, FAIRFAX AUSTRALIA OUT **
