Wynberg Seven

Explanation
Seven school students were arrested during student protests in Wynberg, Cape Town, in 1985 and were charged and convicted of public violence for which they served prison terms of one to two years. The highly publicised trial drew attention to the thousands of students and youth sentenced to prison terms for public violence, effectively criminalising protest activity.
