By Mike Smith
16th of Dec 2012
Today, like every year, I will stand true to the vow of my forefathers and honour this day like a holy Sabbath day and also teach my children and their children NEVER to forget the Battle of Blood River of 16 December 1838. here is the vow: For the sake of international readers I will put the English first and then the Afrikaans.

English:
Here we stand before the holy God of heaven and earth, to make a vow to Him that, if He will protect us and give our enemy into our hand, we shall keep this day and date every year as a day of thanksgiving like a sabbath, and that we shall erect a house to His honour wherever it should please Him, and that we also will tell our children that they should share in that with us in memory for future generations. For the honour of His name will be glorified by giving Him the fame and honour for the victory.

Afrikaans:
Hier staan ons voor die Heilige God van hemel en aarde om ʼn gelofte aan Hom te doen, dat, as Hy ons sal beskerm en ons vyand in ons hand sal gee, ons die dag en datum elke jaar as ʼn dankdag soos ʼn Sabbat sal deurbring; en dat ons ʼn huis tot Sy eer sal oprig waar dit Hom behaag, en dat ons ook aan ons kinders sal sê dat hulle met ons daarin moet deel tot nagedagtenis ook vir die opkomende geslagte. Want die eer van Sy naam sal verheerlik word deur die roem en die eer van oorwinning aan Hom te gee.
Those enemies of our people who seek our demise and commit genocide against us should also take note that we shall Remember the Battle of Blood River for all eternity.

SA farm murders grow more sadistic

“SA farm murders are exceedingly cruel and getting more sadistic…’ say two women who cleaned 117 farm_murder scenes last year alone… Thus far this year up to Oct 2012, there were 39 farm-dwellers murdered in 119 farm attacks.

Victims’ skins are peeled off their bodies; children are drowned in boiling water; people are tortured for days…’

FARM MURDERS GROWING MORE SADISTIC BLOOD SISTERS DEC12012

2012-12-01 Rapport newspaper ‘s Llewellyn Prince interviewed two Afrikaner sisters,  Eileen de Jager en Roelien Schutte who last year alone cleaned up 117 farm-crime scenes countrywide through their company Crime Scene Cleanup. They have been doing this for 13 years. The sisters say they can ‘read a murder-scene very quickly and accurately’.

“The things which happen during these farm murders are very cruel. I don’t believe people realise the cruelty used when the farmers and their family members are murdered in their homes’.

People also are erroneous in their assumption that the younger farmers fight back more during an armed attack: actually the older victims fight back more because they have collected more valuables during the years and want to protect them.’

Often everyone inside the homestead is killed: even the pets…

‘However every farm dweller is targetted – there’s no age-discrimination.’ De Jager also added that over the years the farm murders have become ‘increasingly sadistic’. “Often everyone inside the homestead are killed – even the pets. And people often are tortured in their homes for DAYS before the attackers finally leave.

“The public must know how cruelly these people are being murdered. We were at scenes were people’s skins were peeled off their bodies; where children are drowned in boiling water. It’s horrific’.

Lately De Jager said many farmers are also installing ‘very solid doors’ into their homesteads which make it more difficult for attackers to break into the homes.”Many farmers have also started patrolling their own farm-borders in attempts to protect themselves and their families’. http://www.rapport.co.za/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Plaasmoorde-is-uiters-wreed-20121201

British geo-engineer Chris Preece 54 slashed to death by panga-gang on Ficksburg farm, wife Felicity seriously injured

USA INVESTMENT COMPANY SBN FARMS CHAIRMAN OUR LIVES ARE IN DANGERPREECE British geo engineer murdered on FS farm panga attack tortured It took the SAPS 48 hours before releasing the identity of a farmer who was murdered in a brutal panga-attack in Ficksburg. The police only arrived at the murder-scene twelve hours after the attack near the Lesotho border. British citizen Chris Preece (54) was slashed to death with pangas – his wife Felicity (56) was seriously injured. This was the fifth farm-attack in this district in November, admitted police. The couple’s daughter in law Jeanné Preece of Kimberley said her father in law dreamed of turning his farm Fleur de Lys into a nature reserve for the rehabilitation of owls and cheetahs. The UK-citizen worked as the technical chief geo-engineer at a consultant company in Johannesburg and only spent weekends on his farm. Mediclinic spokeswoman Amanda Appelgryn confirmed that Felicity suffered a fractured skull and was ‘stable but traumatised’. SAPS capt. Phumelelo Dhlamini said they are seeking three black males, ‘probably from Lesotho’, in connection with the panga-attack.

Kallie Kriel submission to United Nations human rights council, Geneve

“South African government strips its minorities of their minority rights”

Report to the UN Forum on Minority Issues
Genève, 27-28 November 2012
Kallie Kriel, CEO of AfriForum, South Africa:

KRIEL Kallie Afriforum

In stark contrast to the praiseworthy efforts by the Forum on Minority Issues to implement the Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities in UN member countries, the South African government is increasingly stripping its minorities of the limited minority rights they still have.

The motive for doing so is set out in the policy documents of the South African governing party, namely the African National Congress (ANC), as to what it calls ‘the National Democratic Revolution’ (NDR).

‘ Afrikaners and other whites: ‘colonialists of a special type’ who are not considered fellow-Africans ‘
In terms of the ANC’s NDR policy documents South African minorities such as Afrikaners and whites in general are not regarded as fellow Africans, but as ‘colonialists of a special type’ (CSTs).

  • The ruling ANC sees minorities as enemies of the revolution:
  • By labelling South African minority communities as CSTs, depicting them as the antithesis of the so-called ‘motive forces’ of the continued struggle, the government is portraying the CSTs as opponents, or even enemies of the revolution. In terms of this logic of the ANC, the NDR is in effect engaged in a struggle against the CST.
    — The CSTs are not part of the ANC’s ‘we’, namely Africans, South Africans and ‘motive forces’, but rather the ‘they’ against whom the struggle should be fought.

In 1962 the South African Communist Party (SACP), which is a member of the present South African ruling alliance, endorsed the concept of a ‘national democratic revolution’. Its ‘Road to South African Freedom’ policy document states  that the ‘colonial state’ needs to be overthrown and the new state used to suppress the former ruling classes and to transform society. The ANC committed itself to the National Democratic Revolution in 1969.

Some may argue that the above battle-inspired terminology only applies to the ANC before 1994 and that the ANC has done away with it by making important concessions during the political transition. However, the following becomes evident in the ANC’s post-1994 strategy documents:

The ANC does not regard the agreements made during the political transition to be a final compromise made to ensure peace and cooperation among all South Africans.
Tactical concessions were merely made in order to obtain state power, after which the agreements reached could be disregarded as the balance of power shifted in favour of the ANC.
The struggle continues, the only difference being that it is now being conducted with the power of the state at its disposal.
The excessive use of struggle terms by the ANC in 2012 proves that the struggle against the CSTs still remains central to the ANC’s ideological armoury. They include terms such as ‘balance of forces’, ‘revolution’, ‘disciplined force’, ‘motive forces’ and ‘battle’.

2 Balance of forces

In terms of the ANC’s continued struggle and ‘balance of forces’ mindset, the ANC has to sway the balance of power as much in its favour as possible in order to succeed with the NDR. The ANC therefore has to increase its own power and erode away the minority rights of its so-called ‘opponents’, in other words the CSTs. This is being done in the following ways:

The ANC strengthens own power base: The ANC’s policy documents expressly state that the organisation is using its cadre deployment policy to ensure ANC control over ‘all centres of power’. As a result, the ANC has already succeeded in gaining control of most institutions having significant authority. Where the ANC is unable to gain control, for example over the independent media, it considers adopting undemocratic methods and legislation to try and control them.

Stripping minorities of their rights as a minority: The ANC is currently using various strategies to undermine the position of minorities, who are regarded as opponents.

3. Stripping minorities of their rights as a minority
The ANC has, since the end of former President Nelson Mandela’s term of office, turned its back on President Mandela’s reconciliatory approach and has systematically begun to strip minorities of their minority rights in South Africa. The following are examples of this:

3.1 Paralysing the constitutional bodies that minorities may call upon for assistance: In terms of the Constitution of South Africa various institutions were established that were supposed to ensure that citizens, but minorities in particular, would be protected from any form of abuse of power. This was considered essential in view of the strong power base of the majority. The ANC regards these bodies as an impediment to the implementation of the NDR and has therefore tried to ensure that the following bodies regulating the balance of power are completely ineffectual:
The Section 185 Commission: Provision for this commission for the protection and promotion of the rights of cultural, religious and language communities was included in the Constitution (Section 185) during the political transition at the insistence of minority parties. However, in practice the ANC made this commission inoperative by initially delaying its establishment and thereafter by focusing the commission’s aims on nation building, instead of the protection of community rights.

The final kiss of death was given by deploying struggle cadres to man the commission, thereby ensuring that the commission is under the firm control of the ANC. As a result, the management of the commission now regularly attends the ANC’s working group meetings on cultural affairs in order to align the commission’s activities with the aims of the ANC. The commission also paid the expenses of its chairperson to attend the ANC’s centenary celebrations.

The hijacking of the Section 185 Commission by the ANC has resulted in the commission being of no use to minorities. In fact, it is now even being used as an instrument for opposing minority demands. When AfriForum recently started a campaign to protect Afrikaans as a medium of instruction in schools, the commission issued a statement criticising AfriForum’s campaign. Ironically, the commission should have been the one institution that AfriForum should have been able to approach for support in this regard.

The Human Rights Commission: AfriForum has over the years submitted numerous complaints to the commission which have been blatantly ignored. Once again cadre deployment was used to render the commission completely ineffectual. The appointment of Mr Lawrence Mushwana as the chairperson is an example in this regard. In a court ruling it was established that during Mushwana’s stint as the Public Protector, his investigation into the so-called Oilgate scandal had been done so superficially that it could not even be called an investigation.

The Pan South African Language Board (Pansalb):

Pansalb was created in terms of the Constitution with the aim of protecting and promoting language rights in South Africa. AfriForum submitted several complaints to Pansalb through the years and favourable rulings were obtained against various institutions that violated language rights. However, the ANC has ensured that Pansalb does not have any power to enforce the rulings concerned. This means that rulings in favour of AfriForum have been ignored by state departments. In addition, insufficient funding and unsuitable appointments have paralysed the board even further. Even more telling of the degree of state interference in matters relating to Pansalb is the fact that the Minister of Arts and Culture recently blatantly contravened the Constitution by interfering in Pansalb board appointments.

The judicial system: To the great frustration of the ANC the judicial system is one of the very few institutions not yet under the complete control of the ANC. One can expect the ANC to launch intensified attempts to change this state of affairs. Danger signs have already been detected in the politically driven actions of most members of the Judicial Services Commission during the appointment of Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng. In KwaZulu-Natal the ANC recently even went as far as stating that the transformation of the bench is not so much concerned with the appointment of black judges as with the appointment of candidates who are sympathetic to the ANC. The high cost of litigation is also a deterrent to challenging the present state of affairs, especially as the ‘cheaper’ option of laying charges with institutions provided for in section 9 of the Constitution, has in effect become a futile exercise.

3.2 Portraying minorities as undeserving scapegoats:

The continued portrayal of minorities such as Afrikaners and whites in general as scapegoats for everything that goes wrong in South Africa, creates the impression that minorities should be grateful for being tolerated and in fact dare not claim their rights. In this regard it is an increasingly common practice to make racially driven statements against whites.

The only thing worse than the ANC Youth League leaders’ statements, is the ANC’s failure to call them to order. The ANC has found the party’s former youth leader, Julius Malema, not guilty on a charge of acting in a polarising manner when he stated, in the presence of President Zuma, that ‘once we agree they [whites] stole our land, we can agree that they are criminals and must be treated as such’. Neither did the ANC utter a single word of protest when the party’s deputy youth leader, Ronald Lamola, made the following threat, namely that Afrikaners’ safety cannot be guaranteed unless they surrender their land without compensation.

3.3 Use of representivity to prevent minority control of institutions:

A central aim of the ANC is to ensure that the demography of South Africa is replicated in all institutions, as this will help create a National Democratic Society. This means that no institution controlled by minorities will eventually be able to exist. Communities that do not have their own institutions are particularly vulnerable.

4.  The present state of language, cultural and education rights in South Africa

The ANC’s success in strengthening its own power base and rendering constitutional bodies that are supposed to protect minorities ineffectual in terms of its ‘balance of forces’ mindset has already affected the state of language, cultural and education rights in South Africa. People whose rights are being violated have limited access to significant methods of recourse and are often left at the mercy of the all-embracing power of the state.

4.1  Education rights:

Section 29 of the Declaration of Human Rights in the Constitution states that everyone has a right to education. The fact that about 80% of the public schools in South Africa are dysfunctional proves that the right to education of an overwhelming majority of learners is being violated. Should the current state of affairs persist, less than half of the children who annually enrol in Grade 1 will eventually write their matriculation examinations and then only a third of them will pass, even though the standards and requirements for passing are quite low.

In my opinion, and in the opinion of others, the main reason for this state of affairs is the stranglehold that the SADTU union has on education. Teachers who do not do their work are protected at the expense of learners. Where SADTU has no influence, education of a high-standing quality is being provided. Having adopted the aims of the National Democratic Revolution the ruling alliance now considers itself to be a movement with lofty aims that ought to spearhead the revolution. This results in the ANC tolerating the violation of learners’ rights, instead of taking action against its alliance partner, SADTU.

Another example of the violation of educational rights is the pressure that is being brought to bear on Afrikaans as a medium of instruction in schools and tertiary institutions.

4.2  Schools:

AfriForum regularly receives complaints from communities in which schools are subjected to politically motivated demands to change their language policy. Of the approximately 1 400 single-medium Afrikaans former Model C schools, fewer than half (667) were able to retain their language policy after this kind of political pressure was brought to bear on them. This happened despite the provisions of section 29 of the Constitution which recognises single-medium schools as an option.

  • In Gauteng, to name but one province, a further 33 Afrikaans schools are at present being subjected to improper political pressure to change their language policy by officials of the Department of Basic Education who seem to be abusing their power. Although school governing bodies have the right, in terms of the South African Schools Act, to choose their respective schools’ language policy, principals have been ordered by education officials to change their language policies. When this does not happen, the principals are threatened with disciplinary steps.

In a town called Fochville all three of the Afrikaans schools were forced to change their language policy, although children who wanted to have an English first language education could have been accommodated in one of these schools only. This kind of language pressure on schools has in several cases already resulted in Afrikaans being completely phased out as the medium of instruction; the former Afrikaans schools are now single-medium English schools. AfriForum is therefore paying the legal fees of one of the schools in Fochville whose governing body would like to oppose the matter in court.

Promises by the Department of Education that additional resources will be provided to schools that change to a parallel-medium system usually also end up being broken.

4.3 Tertiary education:

Afrikaans is under serious threat at this level too. Afrikaans no longer serves as the medium of instruction at the former technical colleges and is experiencing a great deal of pressure at universities whose language of instruction used to be Afrikaans.

At the University of Pretoria only an estimated 35% of the modules are still available in Afrikaans, while the language is also in the line of fire at the University of Stellenbosch (US). Recommendations have been made at the US to have the primary language of communication at the Faculty of Health Sciences to be wholly in English, including at the Tygerberg Hospital where students undergo their practical training. This is the case even though Afrikaans is the home language of 60% of people living in the Western Cape. The residential placing system which is being proposed at the US right now entails that a maximum of 45% Afrikaans students be allowed per residence and that no more than 40% white students should be allowed in mixed residences housing both male and female students. It also calls for half of the students to be accommodated in residences to be the children of parents who did not study at the US. By implication this means that a mere 50% of the students whose parents had studied at the US will be admitted.

The deterioration of the position of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction at universities can be ascribed to the government’s failure to fund multilingualism. The uniform formula used for the funding of universities makes no provision for extra funding for universities offering education in more than one language. This failure may well be intentional, as numerous requests for the funding of multilingualism have fallen on deaf ears.

4.4 Language and cultural rights:

Although the ANC pays lip service to the importance of the promotion of indigenous languages, and although multilingualism is recognised in the Constitution, English has, under the ANC’s administration, in effect become the country’s only official language.

The deliberate refusal to accept the Languages Bill drafted in 2003 paved the way for the further anglicisation of the country – a process that had already started in 1994. The ANC government only gave attention to introducing a Languages Act again in 2010, when a lawyer, Cerneels Lourens, succeeded in obtaining a court order obliging the state to comply with its constitutional duty to finalise and implement such an Act.

As far as cultural and heritage issues are concerned, rights are being violated by a combination of neglect and deliberate violations. One of the most blatant examples occurred in Standerton, where the mayor ordered a Great Trek commemoration plaque to be removed to a dump by means of a grader. Examples of neglect include the deterioration of hugely significant heritage sites such as Anglo-Boer War cemeteries and the difficulties experienced by subsidised institutions such as the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria to get the allocated subsidies paid into their accounts. Subsidies are also often cut with little warning, leaving the institutions in a precarious position.

5. Call on Forum for Minority Issues
AfriForum calls on the Forum for Minority Issues to take a strong stand by insisting that ALL countries take steps to meet the provisions of the Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities. If South Africa is compelled to comply with this Declaration, it would have to stop its assault on minority rights and instead start to expand these minority rights.

Cosatu threatens civil war over farm wages

Update: Tony Ehrenreich of Cosatu threatens ‘a low-level civil war'; WC farmers warned to be on alert from December 4; while  Labour Department still holds public hearings on farm-workers wages.  Meanwhile a white farmer in South Africa is more at risk of being brutally tortured to death and murdered than a police officer.  link

DES 4 2012 PLAASWERKERS DAG VAN AKSIE COSATU PLAKKAAT 

  • This war-talk is adding ever-more fuel to the fire of an all-out genocide. report

Nov 27 2012  — AgriWesKaap warns farmers to be alert from December 4 – after threats of ‘low-level civil war’  were levelled by Cosatu regional secretary Tony Ehrenreich. Meanwhile at a poultry farm in Olifantsfontein Gauteng, Cosatu still supported an illegal wage-strike on November 22, with violent attacks against non-striking workers a daily occurrance at the besieged farm-gates.

Farmers fearful of renewed violence from 4 December after Cosatu trade unionist threatens ‘Civil War on Farms’ …

COSATU THREAT CIVIL WAR ON FARMS NOV 27 2012 SAPA Farms WC must expert more violence from Dec 4 2012 LANDBOU

Olifantsfontein, Gauteng: Why were workers still striking Nov 22 at Early Bird poultry farm?

Below:  Meanwhile despite these ‘negotiations between farmers and workers’ and the ‘hearings being held by the labour minister’ there still are strikes going on against farms. For instance, at the Early Bird poultryfarm in Olifantsfontein in Gauteng on November 22 2012 – a full week after Cosatu ‘ordered an end to the strikes on farms’ – this poultry farm remained under siege from strikers, and Putco buses were bringing in casual workers while 1,600 of the 2,816 workers are out on an illegal strike, according to the ANC-party newspaper “The New Age”. http://www.thenewage.co.za/71150-1009-53-Chicken_wage 

OLIFANTSFONTEIN CHICKEN FARM STRIKE NOV 22 2012 SA Labour Minister: ‘unable to meet 4 December deadline’ for setting new minimum wages due to the limitations  to do so under the Basic Conditions of Employment Act’ :

Ehrenreich reportedly told journalists, according to SAPA, that ‘should AgriSA and the unions come to an agreement, there would definitely be no strike on 4 December. Should a strike go ahead, it would most likely lead to violence and death: This strike… can set back labour relations on farms by decades and could see a reversal to the low-level civil war we all witnessed on farms a few weeks ago,” he reportedly said.

The man flew into his public rage after yesterday’s announcement by SA National Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant that ‘it would be impossible to meet the 4 December deadline’ for establishing new minimum wages. She was still travelling around the country, holding meetings on the issue with farm workers and farmers. 

Ehrenreich raged that  while he “understood wage reviews took time, her remarks undermined negotiations between AgriSA and unions. The minister should be supporting this process, but in her statement she sounds more like the minister of farmers instead of the minister of labour.”

Ehrenreich fumed that “Oliphant should not wash her hands” of the situation, but should provide leadership and a sense of urgency to the review.

Oliphant announced on Tuesday that the socalled ‘ sectoral determination ‘ for countrywide minimum wages – which she usually sets every March – now could “only be reviewed in April.” She told journalists in Pretoria: “”I hope it is quite clear that the deadline of December 4 2012 is practically impossible to achieve, considering the limitations as per the Basic Conditions of Employment Act,” she told reporters in Pretoria. She pointed out that ‘the act allowed a review of the determination only 12 months after promulgation. The latest sectoral determination was put in place in March and would have been in place until February 2015.”

  • Western Cape fruitfarm-workers demand that the minimum wage of R70 a day be raised to R150 a day excluding their free perks such as housing, electricity, food etc.

While less than five percent of all the farm-workers countrywide are actually unionised, Cosatu still claimed that ‘workers agreed to suspend their strike” – which was described earlier by Ehrenreich as a low-level civil war — until 4 December on condition that the employment condition commission (ECC) look at the sectoral determination for agriculture.

  • It’s this murky* ECC which advises Oliphant on wages and other conditions of employment. As part of the strike suspension agreement, Oliphant published her intention to cancel the current sectoral determination, which sets minimum monthly wages at R1,503.90. Basically, her hands are tied by the requirements set down in this law. Undoubtedly Cosatu’s Western Cape secretary knows this law and its limitations. Yet he still issued his inciting threats against the country’s farmers.

Oliphant’s public hearings for workers and their employers started only a week ago in the Western Cape and were set to end in the Eastern Cape and Gauteng on 13 December:   Labour Dept Schedule.

Representatives of both sides had been in negotiations since the strike was ‘suspended’ although violence still continued for days afterwards in several Western Cape towns such as Wolseley, which entire central business district was thrashed by a raging ‘flash-mob’ which had been bused in from other towns.

Oliphant called for ‘workers to refrain from violence.’  When asked if workers would hold off on further protests until April she said: “I can’t guarantee that one. I can’t say there will be a strike or what’ll be going on.” 

Ehrenreich said: “Should AgriSA and the unions come to an agreement, there would definitely be no strike on 4 December. Should a strike go ahead, it would most likely lead to violence and death.” He continued: “This strike… can set back labour relations on farms by decades and could see a reversal to the low-level civil war we all witnessed on farms a few weeks ago.” Entire article on:

  • Farm murders should be classified as a priority crime – they are a national crisis
    By Nico Strydom on 27 November 2012  –  ‘Farm murders and attacks should be recognised for the national crisis that it is and therefore deserving of priority status and focused attention’. This is one of the recommendations in a report on farm murders and attacks that was released today by the Solidarity Research Institute (SRI). The report forms part of a national campaign against farm murders by the Solidarity Movement which includes the SRI, the trade union Solidarity, AfriForum and Kraal Uitgewers.

    The report deals with subjects such as the nature and extent of farm attacks, levels of violence during farm attacks as well as psychological effects on victims.

    SA government claims these are just another ’murder-category’

    According to Dirk Hermann, Deputy General Secretary of Solidarity, farm attacks and farm murders should be declared priority crimes. ‘Government refuses to declare farm murders, in particular, a priority crime, because as far as government is concerned it simply forms part of the broader murder category. This is unacceptable and irresponsible,’ Hermann said.  Hermann’s concerns were echoed by various experts who were involved in compiling the report.

    Farming community disproportionally targetted’ – Institute for Security Studies

    ‘It is obvious that the government no longer considers the ongoing attacks on farms and the murder of persons involved in the farming community as a priority,’ said Dr Johan Burger, senior researcher at the Institute for Security Studies, in the report’s introduction.

    • ‘The strategic and operational response to the threat of farm attacks and murders is clearly not based on the acknowledgement that the farming community is disproportionally targeted when compared to the victimisation risk of other citizens or groups in South Africa.’

    Farmers under siege not taken seriously by government” Criminology expert Prof Christiaan Bezuidenhout

    According to Prof Christiaan Bezuidenhout, a professor of criminology at the University of Pretoria, it is evident that South Africa is struggling to cope with violent crime in general and farm attacks in particular. ‘I am under the impression that the current government is not taking the disastrous enigma of farmers under siege seriously enough and they are making the farmer the outcast instead of the provider of the nation.’

    “ No human being deserves to be killed in such an inhumane, brutal manner” – Lorraine Claasen, criminologist:

    Lorraine Claasen, a criminologist, says it is disconcerting that farm attacks are still not given the attention they deserve despite the harrowing details that become apparent after only reading the details of a few farm attacks; thousands of attacks have been documented. ‘In conclusion, no human being deserves being killed and in such an inhumane, unjustified and brutal manner. Why is this allowed?’

    Memorandi to 110 embassies and international institutions:

    AfriForum, the movement’s civil rights organisation, distributed memorandums about farm murders to 110 embassies and international institutions in October to create international awareness about the crisis.

    • According to Nantes Kelder, head of AfriForum’s investigating unit, the establishment of community safety networks is the most practical step a community can take to drastically reduce crime in its area. It is a legal way in which communities can take the initiative to enhance their own safety.

    Why NASA’s secrecy about ISS beams?

    ISS JULY 16 IMAGE STRANGE BEAM HEADED FOR NORTH MAERICAN CONTINENT LOOKED LIKE LASER Above: I copied this surprising picture on  July 16  2012 and saw this repeatedly after that date while watching the International Space Station’s ‘live streaming’ view from space on my home-computer in The Netherlands. Suddenly this beam shot down from above, bounced on a mirror in front of the camera, and then was beamed to a spot on earth below. It lasted about a minute – giving me plenty of time to copy several frames to my computer via the ‘Paint’ programme.  I’ve asked NASA for an explanation: have obtained none. The ISS was at that time travelling a trajectory across the Northern hemisphere — and I estimated that the beam went to a spot somewhere in the middle of the continent –  as can be seen because the clouds below were brightly lit up. Was it a communication device or some kind of powerful laser-beam? What purpose does it serve?

    Protestors ordered to torch West Cape farms

    FARM VIOLENCE DU TOIT GROUP ROBERTSON NOV 2012 STATEMENT                                   

    ANARCHY IN THE FRUIT INDUSTRY OF THE WESTERN CAPE
    Statement: “The present anarchy taking place on most of our agri properties in the Western Cape caused a major break in confidence in the future of Agri investment. This anarchy is mainly driven by provoked worker emotions. In the process, serious and well intended investors in this Agri Sector as well as our workers are abused by political powers with own agendas.’

    This dangerous game has now derailed and the results are as follows:

    1. All indications suggest that specific instructions to burn down property and movable assets caused millions of Rands damage to our business.
    2. Further huge consequential losses are caused as a result of disruptions due to critical and time-based agricultural practices that can not be executed.
    3. Long-term labour relations were destroyed because this orchestrated campaign was fuelled by unfounded promises by political representatives, such as unions and political parties.
    4. Major losses occurred as a result of minority groups of workers who received specific orders to target selected properties.
    5. This minority group of workers violently intimidated and assaulted well intended workers and management of Dutoit Agri.

    The slow and inefficient reaction by Government to protect our assets and people, confirms the strong suspicion that this is an ill intended campaign by unions and political parties.
    In the interest of our stakeholders Dutoit Agri has the following urgent and serious message:

    1. To the Government:
    1.1 Protect the agricultural community of the Western Cape with sufficient police and security forces.
    1.2 Expose the saboteurs and keep them accountable as the law prescribes.
    1.3 Arrest the identified saboteurs and let justice take its course.

    2. To the well intended Workers:
    2.1 We know about your suffering and trauma over the past three (3) days. We will support you and do everything within our ability to restore and protect job opportunities which was built up through the past years.
    2.2 Although difficult, please do your best to continue with critical tasks so that our company can survive.

    3. To the Management:
    3.1 The severe traumatisation, sleepless nights and life threatening situations you had to go through the last three (3) days makes each of you a hero during the time of crisis.
    3.2 Your dedication is a sense of proof that the greater calling of Dutoit people is to unite and to stand together for the survival and pursuit of our vision.

    4. To the Community:
    Thank you for thousands of messages of support and prayers. We appreciate it and it encourages us to continue to share the welfare we bring to South Africa and the Western Cape with our stakeholders.

    5. To our Clients:
    5.1 We will do everything within our power to continue to deliver the high quality products, which nature provides us with, according to our agreement with you.
    5.2 Please accept this episode in our history as a once-off event.

    5.3 Over the years we have not yet disappointed you. Trust that we will continue our commitment in the future. We apologize for the anarchy during the past week.

    It was beyond our control. Hopefully our government finally realized that law and order is non-negotiable to operate successful businesses to the benefit of all.

    6. To our Providers:
    6.1 We appreciate your understanding and support in the current crisis.
    6.2 Please work together with us to restore and rebuild assets that were destroyed so that we can perform our critical tasks.

    Du Toit has farmed for more than 100 years:

    Hereby attached find photos of horrific scenes as evidence of the potential of political power struggle play-offs in our community where so many people are dependant on agriculture.  Our prayers, hope and desire is that Dutoit Agri will soon be allowed to continue with the good work which has been done for more than 100 years.

    Demand to set conditions for trading policies in agricultural sector in South Africa:
    This disruptive experience compels us to set a condition that trading policies are clearly stipulated, before any further investment in the agricultural sector in South Africa takes place. Namely:

        A clear policy framework which sets out support from the government for agriculture in South Africa
        A commitment to farmers and agricultural workers’ safety and to guarantee the protection of their properties.

    Our experience of these events is that serious questions now arise, such as:
    1. To what extent can we automate and mechanize our processes to be more productive and reduce dependence on labour?
    2. Are there crops that we can farm with where labour can be minimized or eliminated to reduce labour risK?

    Weighed against Dutoit Agri’s fantastic resources, years of experience and market relationships; the above-mentioned options could lead to a tragedy for our current workers,  not even to mention job creation for the youth of our future.

    Yours sincerely,P.S.F. du Toit
