Invercargill Mayor Tim Shadbolt looks back on his favourite protest during the anti-vietnam war movement.

Tim Shadbolt was a student anti-war activist during the 1960s and 1970s.

He was arrested 33 during this time, including for using the word “bullshit", hence the title of his autobiography, Bullshit and Jellybeans.

He organised weekly meetings in Albert Park known as the “Jumping Sundays” to raise awareness of New Zealand’s role in the war, and to encourage people to protest.

He looks back on those times, addressing the crowds in Albert Park.
