November 1987 saw a number of Tennis players travel to South Africa to play in the South African Open. A Saulwick Opinion Poll on November the 18th found that a majority of Australians approved of this and other polls indicated that a majority of Australians accepted the violence that was occuring there as a part of life.

Meanwhile, back in Australia, reports were being tabled in Parliament highlighting Aboriginal deaths in custody, as well as general health and education problems in Aboriginal communities.
