The heart motif was the logo for Halt All Racist Tours (HART) and became a well-known symbol of the anti-tour movement. Lett made these sticks for fellow protesters. He wanted a more creative response to the tour after the violence of the protests in Gisborne and Hamilton (on 22 and 25 July 1981 respectively). Lett was part of Artists Against Apartheid, an organisation that relied on more creative, less confrontational approaches. It organised street parades, concerts, street theatre, and fund-raising, drawing together artists from all disciplines – music, visual arts, theatre, and writers.
