    Background: THE SOUTH AFRICAN RUGBY UNION TOURING THEM PLAYED THEIR SECOND INTERNATIONAL AGAINST FRANCE ON SATURDAY (30 DECEMBER) AT THE PARC DES PRINCES STADIUM IN PARIS AMID STRONG ANTI-RACIALIST FEELINGS.

    DEMONSTRATORS HANDED OUT LEAFLETS TO CROWDS ARRIVING TO SEE THE GAME AND MANIFESTED THEIR CONVICTIONS BY CHANTING SLOGANS AND IMITATING NAZI SALUTES.

    ALTHOUGH THERE WAS A LARGE CONTINGENT OF POLICE AT THE STADIUM, DEMONSTRATORS MANAGED TO MINGLE WITH THE CROWD AND KEEP UP THEIR CHANTED PROTESTS. LATER, HOWEVER, POLICE REINFORCEMENTS MOVED IN TO BLOCK OFF THE MAIN BODY OF THE DEMONSTRATION FROM THE RUGBY FANS.

    THE SOUTH AFRICANS WON THE GAME TEN POINTS TO EIGHT.
