The article offers information regarding the protests on the political system of apartheid in South Africa which occurred in the 1981 tour of the South African rugby football team to Aotearoa/New Zealand. It mentions that the political system of apartheid was a system where the subjugation and segregation of black South Africans were ensured by the most notorious race laws in the post-World War two. It states that the pronouncement of Treat of Waitangi signing by Governor William Hobson was brought by the protests at Waitangi Day celebrations. It adds that the Springbok Tour resulted to the economic hardship and fear of communism.
