Afrikaners sign up enmasse for own elections
25 July 2011 1 Comment
Pretoria, South Africa, 24 July, 2011, J. Maré of the Afrikaner Journal noted that a great many Afrikaners at the poverty-stricken Daspoort smallholdings registered for the Volksraad council elections later this year. These Republican Council-elections are held for the first time since 1902 to chose leaders from the Afrikaner community itself. People came from all over the Wesmoot region to register. http://bit.ly/qkjobR
The purpose of electing their own Volksraad is so that this body of elected Afrikaner/Boer leaders would start international negotiations for the re-institution of the former Boer Republics: with the borders still being worked out but its proposed total surface area taking up no more than 6,5% of the total South African land-surface roughly on the same territories which were occupied by the Boer Republics of the Transvaal, the Free State and Vryheid. http://bit.ly/nU36YK Also: Twelve ways to deny genocide: http://www.genocidewatch.org/aboutgenocide/12waystodenygenocide.html Hundreds of thousands of destitute Afrikaners get no food aid at all from the ANC-regime: why not? http://bit.ly/duoZOM Gruesome slaughter of Afrikaner/Boers: photos: http://www.censorbugbear.org/photos
Forced removals, ethnic-cleansing campaigns by ANC-regime to cleanse all the original Afrikaner/Boer inhabitants from greater Pretoria…
VVK officials, representatives of the Doulos Ministries for the poor, the charity Angels At Work and the Afrikaner Journal were also on hand. This registration drive was held in the smallholdings region of greater Pretoria – traditionally regions where Afrikaner/Boers have lived in permanent settlement ever since the Great Trek — and which now are rapidly becoming known as the Afrikaner Killing Fields . More defenceless, working-class Afrikaners are being killed, attacked, terrorised and mutilated by heavily-armed black youth militias in this region around Pretoria than in any other region of the country. This is also the region facing a forced removal campaign by the local ANC-run city council of all its original Afrikaner/Boer inhabitants – the people whose forebears founded Pretoria.
Lively debates about Afrikaner self-determination:
Mare noted that the response to the call for registration was so great that VVK officials Charl De Jager & Jacques Maré ran out of registration forms. “The atmosphere was electric and lively debates about self-determination could be heard throughout the day”. Despite their impoverished circumstances, community members have shown a great deal of resilience in resisting the relentless onslaught by the ANC Metro-council to kick them out of their humble wooden cottages.
“This was just another step in the fight for dignity – placing their names on the voters’ roll for the VVK so that their voices could be heard by a council which was elected from amongst their own nation.”
Ethnic-cleansing campaign of impoverished Afrikaners pending
This community in Daspoort faces forced evictions by the ANC city council.The ANC has made a test-case for one property owner and identified the homes which they want demolished. It is just a matter of time before the order will be given to destroy the lives of this embattled community. The case has been pending since 2009.
Magda Stroebel. founder of the Angels At Work welfare organization, is due to appear in court again on the 29th of this month to face trumped-up charges of violating certain building regulations. She is however providing shelter to many people who simply don’t have anywhere to go, writes Mare.

According to Ms Stroebel, the council has yet to announce its intent to move them and provide suitable homes for them within their communities and rehouse these desperately poor people among those who share their language and cultural identity. The council, obliged to act according to the SA constitution, must always offer alternative housing for those people before they evict them. Thus far the council has offered no suggestions on solving this dilemma. Not only does the ANC-regime create a humanitarian crisis, but this situation can very easily turn into severe ‘human rights’ violations by the newly elected ANC council, noted Mare.
In addition, these Afrikaner land-rights activists claim, the ANC is biased in their approach towards members of different race groups. The Afrikaners say that the ANC’s court-case is based on bogus ‘regulations’ with their submission to the Pretoria law court that the neat, backyard wendy houses housing these people ‘violate building regulations.” Activists warn that this law-suit instead is targetting one specific racial minority and that the wendy houses are merely used as an excuse: pointing out that the same ANC-council meanwhile does not intervene when black people arrive enmasse from other countries and erect dangerous, unhealthy and dilapidated structures anywhere they like. The ANC-council then choses to ignore all the ‘health- fire- and safety risks’ posed by such black shanty towns.
How does the VVK fit into the picture?
The VVK (The independent registration council for the Volksraad elections) was founded to facilitate the registration of all eligible persons on the voters’ roll for a future election to create a legitimate Afrikaners/Boer governing council. (“Volksraad”). This elected body will be the governing body that will make executive decisions on behalf of the Afrikaner/Boer nation and will furthermore be the mouth piece and administrative body of all matters connected to this group of people.
The Volksraad (as it will be known), would serve as the modern equivalent of a similar governing body that ran the Boer Republics during the Afrikaners’ fifty years of internationally-recognised autonomy in their independent, internationally-recognised Boer Republics in the late nineteenth century. The Boer republics did not have political parties: instead they were governed by a Volksraad (council), consisting of democratically elected representatives from the Afrikaner/ Boer population.
The need for a new Volksraad Council became clear after 1994 when the Afrikaners/Boers found that their political voice in the ‘New South Africa’ has been reduced to a mere whisper. The situation has deteriorated to such en extent that not one political party in the present-day ANC/SACP/Cosatu trade union-ruled country represents the Afrikaners – although they are 6% of the total SA population – in the present-day parliament. The ANC has since 1994, created the most polarized society in the world: passing many anti-white, genocidal laws to suppress, impoverish and ethnically-cleanse the Afrikaner nation from all their traditional towns and farms. The National Council (Volksraad) also will deal with the following emergency issues in addition to the issue of self-determination:
Genocidal anti-white ANC laws cause severe poverty and exodus of Afrikaners
ANC anti-white employment laws have resulted in severe poverty among an estimated 800,000 of the 3-million Afrikaners. Most of these people are literally living like animals in makeshift structures and shacks all over the country.
The Journal reported in an earlier article that the ANC regime has managed to marginalize Afrikaners by introducing legislation to bar members of this group, from almost all economic activity through their black-racist, anti-white job reservation legislation.The effect of these ANC-laws is increase of 150% in severe poverty amongst the Afrikaners.
Extrapolated at this present rate – if no new anti-white employment laws are passed – the ANC will keep on deliberately harming and impoverishing this small, very visible minority as follows:
- 25% of all Afrikaners (1 084 556) will be destitute, seven years from now,
- 50% of all Afrikaners (2 133 444) will be destitute, fifteen years from now,
- 75% of all Afrikaners (3 256 302) will be destitute, twenty years from now,
- 100% of this group will be living in absolute squalor by 2034 – a mere twenty-three years from now” source
The Afrikaner Diaspora (Boer Political refugees)
The ANC has managed to purge the South African society of its most valuable asset – trained/educated Afrikaners that could have contributed to the welfare of this country. An estimated 1 million ex-pat Boers are living in exile in countries like the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Many countries have rightfully acknowledged their status as refugees and the number of Afrikaner refugees have soared. There are 170 South Africans with legal political-refugee status in Germany, 111 in the USA, 46 in Ireland, 33 in Canada, 24 in the UK, 18 in France and 15 in Australia.(From our information, it is also believed that some ten applications are also pending in New Zealand.) – Source: SA’s 604 overseas refugees
Afrikaner Poverty – the ‘white minority’ of South Africa lives in growing squallor, chronic hunger and have become Internal Displaced Persons
Those many hundreds of thousands of Afrikaners/Boers who cannot flee from this systematic genocide, have become internal displaced persons in the country of their birth. They live in squallor, in little camps in and around all the major cities. It was in one of these communities that registration for the council election took place this week.
The UNHCR (The United Nations Refugee Agency) describes the position of displaced Afrikaners very aptly, in this quote from their website dedicated to IDP’s:
Internally displaced people, or IDPs, are often wrongly called refugees. Unlike refugees, IDPs have not crossed an international border to find sanctuary but have remained inside their home countries. Even if they have fled for similar reasons as refugees (armed conflict, generalized violence, human rights violations), IDPs legally remain under the protection of their own government – even though that government might be the cause of their flight. As citizens, they retain all of their rights and protection under both human rights and international humanitarian law.

The United Nations published a report in May 2010 in which John Holmes, its Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, noted the following:
More than 27 million people were uprooted by violence within their countries in 2009, the highest number since the mid-1990s. He noted that ‘the term Internally Displaced Persons and other jargon “do not come close to doing justice to the truly awful experience of being displaced – disoriented, traumatized, confused, fearful, disempowered, dependent, helpless,”
The six countries with the largest IDP populations are Sudan, with nearly 5 million; Colombia, with between 3.3 and 4.9 million; Iraq, with almost 2.8 million; the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), with nearly 2 million; Somalia, with 1.5 million; and Pakistan, with 1.2 million.
Africa is the region witnessing the greatest volume of internal displacement, with a total of 11.6 million IDPs in 21 countries, while South and South-East Asia saw the biggest jump in numbers of IDPs from 3.5 million in 2008 to 4.3 million in 2009.Source: Internal displacement at highest level since mid-1990s, finds UN-backed report
Under the UN definition of internally-displaced persons, the destitute Afrikaners should also be recognised as such. In which case the UN would be obligated to recognize this status and make relief-efforts available for this small minority.
Charities helping Afrikaners are persecuted by ANC regime
In addition to this, in May 2011 a summary from criminology-site Farmitracker.com has also been noted another ominous trend – namely the ANC-regime’s deliberate refusal to provide any kind of food-aid to Afrikaner charities to help keep these communities alive; and the regime’s very deliberate persecution of private individuals and private charities daring to help destitute Afrikaner internal refugees. The Daspoort community’s pending removal threat is just one example of many similar persecutions against poor white communities countrywide. Many charities and individuals are waging an increasingly desperate battle to keep alive these hundreds of thousands of destitute Afrikaners – all internal refugees floating around the countryside.

ANC-RULED CITY COUNCIL STARTS ETHNIC-CLEANSING CAMPAIGN OF AFRIKANERS WHO VOTED FOR DEMOCRATIC-ALLIANCE:
No alternative accommodation has been arranged by the Pretoria City council official Johan Jacobs after he demanded the forced-removals of hundreds of poor-Afrikaner residents being housed in neat little Wendy houses located at the Daspoort smallholding at 929 Keyter Street near Pretoria. Jacobs showed up with his demands before the pending court-case on July 29 2011.
The matter has been lagging in the courts for the past two years: but Pretoria city officials were never on hand to testify and now the final decision about the issue will allegedly be taken on July 29. It’s no surprise therefore that the city has decided to take matters into their own hands before that date – arriving on Monday-morning and ‘ordering’ charity-chief Stroebel to start breaking down the little cottages. The structures are neat, clean and even have fire-prevention installed: all the legal requirements for healthy housing have been met. Yet the Afrikaners at this smallholding face constant harassment from the city council. It’s beginning to look very much like an ethnic-cleansing campaign targetting a specifically interesting group of Afrikaners: they voted enmasse for the Democratic Alliance at the last municipal election, and it would be to the advantage of the ANC city council to remove these DA-voters from their voting district altogether. Clearly they pay no attention to the legal requirements for squatters: namely that they must be given suitable alternative accommodation before they can even be moved.They couldn’t wait for the court to decide on July 29.They are forcing the issue now.
“Angels at Work “charity chief Magda Stroebel urgently needs help, call her at 082 969 7405 / 012 377 1141 of 076 234 4150. Many poor whites are going to end up homeless today. This cannot be allowed to happen. Clearly the ANC-run city council of Pretoria has now decided to start its ethnic-cleansing campaign of poor Afrikaners on the Pretoria smallholdings in earnest: starting at Daspoort. The city council official claims he has ‘given a court order to her lawyer ‘ – but she knows nothing about it. He has not produced any court-order. It is illegal to force people out of their ‘alternative accommodations’ unless the city has suitable accommodation to house them in. THAT’S THE LAW ALSO FOR WHITE SQUATTERS. If the Pretoria city council gets those Wendy houses torn down before the court makes a decision on July 29, thousands of other poor Afrikaners in the Daspoort region will also be forced to move. This is undoubtedly an ethnic-cleansing campaign to clear these Afrikaners – who massively voted for the Democratic Alliance at the last municipal election – out of this voting district. If there are any legal people in the vicinity of her Daspoort smallholding, please go and help her right away. And if they succeed: where are those people going to find a roof over their heads – in the middle of the winter?
‘Afrikaner guilt for apartheid’ claims hide the ANC’s own guilt about its own vicious terrorism against its own people
Freedom Front Plus MP Koos van der Merwe writes: 2011-07-24. The perceived ‘guilt of the Afrikaner for apartheid’ hides one very important factor in these claims, namely the fact that the ANC’s guilt during this era is always ignored. And what was that guilt?
Necklacing: (torching people to death with a petrol-filled tyre around their necks): 505 people died and 36 people were severely injured in ‘the most brutal and inhumane manner imaginable,’ according to De Klerk. Let’s also recall the inciting calls by Winnie Mandela on 12 April 1986: “Together, hand in hand, with our boxes of matches and our necklaces, we shall liberate this country” (Business Day, 21 Februarie 1994). On 4 Mei 1986, Radio Freedom broadcast an ANC-propaganda call, saying: “Let us take our weapons, both rudimentary and sophisticated, our necklaces, our grenades, our machine guns, our AK47’s, our limpet mines and everything we can get, let us fight the vigilantes…together with the police and the army”. (Business Day, 21 Februarie 1994).
On 5 January 2010, the following written information was provided to me by genl. Johan van der Merwe, former police-commissioner, providing reliable details for the time-period Sept 1984 to April 1992:
“Amnesty International in Nov 1992 ( as quoted in Business Day 1Dec1992; The Citizen, 15Jan1993) published details about the harrowing situation which existed in the ANC-exile camps in Angola, Tanzanië, Uganda and Zambia, recording routine incidents of physical abuse, organised rape, routine tortures and illegal executions of their own people in this same twelve-year period. These all were atrocities committed by the ANC against their own people inside their own exile-camps.” Commented Van der Merwe: “We must exercise caution to not sullify the Afrikaner past — without also understanding and balancing this by holding these incidents up to the circumstances in which events occurred. We must always look at both sides of that same coin. And it’s also important to recognise the great many good things which were also acknowledged by ANC leaders such as pres Jacob Zuma as having occurred during apartheid: Zuma admitted openly in Beeld, 6 April 2008 that ‘apartheid also had its many sides.’
Persons killed by rioters:: 8,825; and injured by rioters: 18,428
Persons killed while alive in the necklace-method: 406
