161 Battery civic parade in Auckland

Submitted by admin on Thursday, 6 December 2012 - 2:56pm
The withdrawal of combat troops from Vietnam did nothing to stem the growth of the anti-war movement in New Zealand. When Auckland organised a civic reception in 1971 to mark the return of 161 Battery RNZA and 4 Troop NZSAS from South Vietnam, anti-war protesters staged a demonstration to coincide with the event.
Police move in to remove protesters attempting to sit in front of the oncoming RNZA band
