Over the last quarter of a century, since the so-called “dawn of democracy” on South Africa, the White minority population in the country has been subjected to a variety of civil, legal, political, social, economical and humanitarian injustices. The White minority consists out of people recognizing themselves as Afrikaners, Boers, English (or other mother tongue) speakers and is recognizable by a common Western culture and orientation.
INJUSTICES AGAINST THIS GROUP
These injustices include (but are not limited to)
1. Racist exclusion from the labour force, economy, national sports teams and admission to higher education institutions through no less than 119 racially based laws and so-called quota systems;
2. An escalating and extremely concerning wave of attacks and brutal murders of defenseless farmers, senior citizens and children with an undoubted political motive.
This includes the
2.1. burning and looting of businesses,
2.2 slaughter of farm and domestic animals
2.3. and extremely cruel torturing of victims by such revolting acts as burning elderly people with :
2.3.1 hot irons, blowtorches etc, dumping little children into scorching hot tubs of water and
2.3.2 raping of women in their 80’s and 90’s.
3. Elderly and defenseless white people are cruelly neglected and assaulted in caretaking facilities.
4. A concerning number of potentially productive citizens are now living in conditions of poverty and neglect in so-called “white” squatter camps as a result of Affirmative Action and Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment.
5. Despite an undertaking that our culture and language will be recognized, the remaining two Afrikaans Universities are now also being turned into English medium tuition institutions, thereby denying the Afrikaans speaking student from the White and Coloured minority groups the right to mother tongue education – a basic Human Right.
5.1 School governing bodies are being forced by ANC and EFF politicians into admitting English speaking students, thereby gradually destroying our language as a language of tuition.
5.2. There is a concerning increase in violent behavior at schools, including attacks and assaults on teachers and fellow learners
6. Through the proposed amendment of Section 25 of the Constitution of South Africa, the white minority population will be robbed of their property, land and possessions through expropriation without compensation. This is not only a violation of the agreements preceding the election of 1994, but is a violation of civil and human rights in its most brutal form.
7. Members of the white minority population are frequently illegally arrested on charges of racism based on the most scantily of evidence. The Constitutional Court stated that a song calling for the massacre of the Boer people (Kill the Boer) cannot be regarded as offensive or racist, despite the conviction by many people that this song is inciting violence and murder in South Africa.
FUNDAMENTAL HAN RIGHT TO SELF DETERMINATION
The fundamental Human Right to self determination is recognized in the following: Chapter 1, Article 1, part 2 states that purpose of the UN Charter is: “To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace.”
Article 1 in both the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) reads:
“All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development. ”
The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights article 15 states that everyone has the right to a nationality and that no one should be arbitrarily deprived of a nationality or denied the right to change nationality. These articles have been ratified and agreed to by the current South African government, but not executed. We therefore also ask that governments and nations around the world recognize our right to self government and support us in our objective to achieve this.
UNITING OF LEADERS
In light of what is mentioned above, the leaders of a variety of groups and institutions, activists and administrators of public forums (totaling 89) have decided to unite and send out a message to the governments and countries of the world to recognize the crisis we are dealing with in South Africa and to unite their voices in civilized and righteous objection to this.
For a period of 48 hours, this message will be the only one which we will repeatedly send out through all channels available to us in asking for help, recognition and support in our struggle for freedom, justice and human dignity in the country of our birth.
