"What's Another Tour? No To Racist Rugby"
From 1981, an article in Socialist Republic on a proposed tour of apartheid South Africa for the British & Irish Lions rugby team. The team had toured in 1980 despite widespread opposition (including from the governments of both the UK and Ireland).
Socialist Republic was the magazine of Peoples Democracy, who were then the Irish affiliate of the Fourth International.
