Historical Notes: The protest was against the apartheid regime in South Africa. These marchers refer to the protests resulting from the Springbok tour of New Zealand in 1981 when the games were played behind barbed wire barriers, and protesters and police battled it out on the streets. The All Black tour of South Africa planned for 1985 was cancelled
