Meadowlands Project - Joburgpedia

In January 1976, the Meadowlands High School Board opposed the imposition of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction. Two members of the School Board were then dismissed by the apartheid authorities. On the morning of June 16 there was no march in Meadowlands, but by the afternoon news of police shootings reached this area, prompting angry students to destroy landmarks associated with injustice. The next day, a planned march to Orlando Stadium was coordinated by students from Meadowlands High.
