Georgia: promised land for Boers

Very accurate European TV-documentary about the plight of the besieged Boers of South Africa started broadcasting in Europe this week – Watch video:

FIELD OF CROSSES STOP BOER GENOCIDE WITHOUT LOGO May 21 2011 –  I just watched this French/German documentary by Berlin Factory Productions journalists Geraldine Schwartz and Alexandre Ifi on Arte+7 TV in Europe: the team followed two besieged Boer families from their farms in Mpumalanga to Georgia – where the best farmers of Africa were offered land to help modernise the antiquated agricultural production in Georgia. This is one of most balanced programmes about the Boer genocide  I’ve seen in the Western media thus far. It’s also getting coverage on German TV:
