More Info →Police Lines in Cuba Street

This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 01 August 1981, with the caption: "Police with Long batons and riot helmets block Cuba Street near the Showgrounds.” This image likely depicts the police line formed in anticipation of the arrival of an unplanned march at 11am. The Standard reported that 400 Wellington based protestors marched up Linton Street into Church Street and into the Square, before stopping at the Commercial Hotel. They then continued to the Showgrounds to inspect the barbed wire, where few police were present. The marchers did not approach the police line, instead moving down Pitt Street into Main street to the Railway land, assembling for the planned march at 1pm.
