Approximately 5,000 people showed their opposition to the pending Springbok rugby tour by marching down Broadway then into The Square. They assembled at the Lions Den where they were addressed by a variety of speakers. The march was headed by Labour MP for Palmerston North Mr. Joe Walding (centre). Others under the banner include Rev. Dr David Penman of All Saints Church, march organiser Bishop Peter Cullinane, Rev. Dr Alan Webster and the President of the Manawatu Trades Council Mr. Noren Byrnes. The same evening a group of 8,000 pro-tour supporters also gathered in The Square.
