Convicted Boeremag members, sentenced

Boeremag leaders get long sentences
October 29 2013, 15:38
BOEREMAG leader Tom Vorster and five members of its bomb squad, which blew up numerous targets in 2002, were sentenced to an effective 25 years’ imprisonment by the high court in Pretoria on Tuesday.
Vorster shrugged and told reporters he had not expected such a severe sentence, as he had already been in prison for more than a decade.
Bombers Herman van Rooyen, Johan and Wilhelm Pretorius, and Rudi Gouws received the same sentences as Vorster.
The third Pretorius brother, master bomb maker Kobus Pretorius, was sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment, of which 10 years were suspended.
This was because Kobus Pretorius had a change of heart during the trial, broke away from his past and expressed remorse for what he did.
The members of the bomb squad were sentenced to an additional 13 years’ imprisonment on charges of culpable homicide and conspiring to murder former president Nelson Mandela.
Soweto mother Claudia Mokone was killed in her shack by a piece of steel dislodged by a bomb the Boeremag planted on a railway.
Judge Eben Jordaan said Mr Mandela would have been killed by a land mine planted by the Boeremag bomb squad if he had not arrived by helicopter to open a school in Bolobedu, Limpopo.
This would have caused chaos and bloodshed in the country. He said the Boeremag’s aim had been to destroy democracy in South Africa.
How dangerous they were was evidenced by the fact that they carried on committing violent crimes some had said were incapable of being carried out.
The bombers already had five large car bombs ready for targets in the city centres of Pretoria and Johannesburg, and were planning further bomb attacks when they were caught.
Boeremag leaders Mike du Toit, Dirk Hanekom and the Pretorius brothers’ father, Dr Lets Pretorius, were each sentenced to 30 years’ imprisonment, of which 10 years were conditionally suspended for five years.
Mike du Toit’s right-hand man, Andre du Toit, and Dion van den Heever were sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment of which 10 years were suspended.
Rooikoos du Plessis and Jurie Vermeulen, who also played important roles in planning the coup, got 15 years’ imprisonment, of which 10 were suspended.
One of the Boeremag’s most active members and the Boeremag chaplain, 74-year-old Vis Visagie, was sentenced to five years of correctional supervision.
Five of the Boeremag members who played a lesser role, including the youngest member Jacques Jordaan, walked out of the court free men after being given suspended sentences.
They are the Boeremag “weakling” Adriaan van Wyk and former defence force officers Giel Burger, Jacques Olivier and Pieter van Deventer.
The sentences were met with outrage by some, but acceptance by others.
Dr Lets Pretorius’s wife, Minnie, cried inconsolably. Friends shielded her from the cameras.
Van Wyk’s wife expressed relief that her husband would be coming home.
Revisiting the past; – The ANC’s own treason trial
(How the ANC killed people to achieve their political goals)
The Boeremag trial cannot be seen in isolation though. It is necessary to revisit the past to understand the motives and the reasons behind the treasonous acts of these Boers.
Why would anybody want to commit such heinous acts, in the name of freedom and struggle for human rights?
The Censorbugbear.org website gives us an idea of the atrocities committed by the current governing party of South Africa in their quest to “liberate” South Africa and institute communist socialism.
Throughout their campaign to destroy apartheid, they maintained that violence had been necessary to remove the illegitimate (and undemocratic) regime of the Afrikaners, oppressing the majority blacks. Now that Boers are expressing the same violent tendencies to oppose African nationalism – it is deemed an act of treason geared at destabilizing South Africa, according to the ANC government.
The pictures below (and in the attached links) are the work of sitting ANC parliamentarians …… in fact, some of the same violent criminals, who planned and implemented the following acts of violence, still form part of the current ANC executive. and some are honourary members – revered throughout the world and acknowledged as upstanding citizens and politicians.
Nobel Peace Laureate Nelson Mandela’s bombs – for the record
For the testimony submitted to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission by the [ANC] terrorists themselves about the war they waged against the peoples of South Africa, view the TRC website – but also note that Nelson Mandela has never personally had to testify about his role in approving of these atrocities:
However, in his book,” Long Walk to Freedom”, Mandela writes that as a leading member of the ANC’s executive committee, he had “personally signed off” in approving these acts of terrorism – the results of which can be seen below. So look at these scenes on the pictures and videos below to view exactly what Mandela had “signed off” for while he was in prison – convicted for other acts of terrorism after the Rivonia trial. The late SA president P.W. Botha told Mandela in 1985 that he could be a free man as long as he did just one thing: ‘publicly renounce violence. Mandela refused. That is why Mandela remained in prison until the appeaser Pres F.W. de Klerk freed him unconditionally. The bottom line is that Nelson Mandela never publicly renounced violence.
When Mandela was arrested on his Rivonia farm hideout near Johannesburg, the following munitions and bomb-making equipment were confiscated with him and his courageous comrades.
(Read his ‘Rivonia trial’ transcripts for all the details, starting with his heroic opening statement: “I am prepared to die…’ :http://www.anc.org.za/ancdocs/history/rivonia.html – clearly he didn’t care whether all those innocent civilians whose tortured and mutilated bodies can be seen below, died either)
- 210,000 hand grenades
- 48,000 anti-personnel mines
- 1,500 time devices
- 144 tons of ammonium nitrate
- 21,6 tons of aluminium powder
- 1 ton of black powder
Nelson Mandela had been found guilty, and rightly so, but not-withstanding his violent past became president of South Africa in 1994, without publicly denouncing violence, or apologising for the pain and suffering his terrorism has caused innocent victims. In fact, Nelson Mandela can be seen singing the “hate speech” song “Kill the Boer!” after his release, very clearly not convinced about his own supposed personal ideology of “peace and reconciliation”.
How should one interpret these actions of this icon for “human rights”?
Should we accept that violence is sometimes a justified method of bringing about change?
How should we interpret the new Boer threat to the stability of the South African state?
The new struggle for freedom
(When restorative intervention, becomes deadly)
“African nationalism” has become the new scourge, threatening the livelihood and existence of minorities in South Africa, according to activist from minority communities. The ANC had insisted (during the so-called struggle), that they were the only, real champions of “freedom”, “equality” and “basic human rights” for all South Africans, but what has happened to those noble ideals and principles since liberation?
Since coming to power in South Africa, the ANC has promulgated and signed into law 108 race-based laws, geared at infringing the rights of minority populations, like the Afrikaners and Boers, as well as the minority Indian, Khoi-san and coloured communities, in opposition to the social equality they purported to bring about in South Africa
These laws are designed to restrict Afrikaners in everything they do, and the way they live – from property confiscation, employment reservation, dissolving communities through spatial restrictions, language restrictions, school transformation, reigning-in of mother-tongue education, restricting welfare to vulnerable communities, and even creating life-threatening conditions by promoting “hate speech”, calling for the murder of Afrikaners in general.
As recently as October 10, thousands of Afrikaner protesters and international supporters protested the extreme violent nature of Afrikaner farmer murders, which is widely believed to be linked to ANC government transformation, and land redistribution policies. In order to popularize these policies,the ANC has created the fiction that Afrikaner farmers have “stolen the land” from blacks and therefore, it may be confiscated and redistributed to poor black South Africans. This has created conditions of immense distrust and tension, and has lead to increased incidents of friction in these rural communities. In addition, many rural supporters of the ANC (encouraged by ANC executives singing banned “hate speech” songs) feel justified in violently liberating the land, by killing the Afrikaner farmer and looting his belongings.
Afrikaners/Boers are asking themselves why this new dispensation of “codified government thuggery”, should not be seen as severe oppressive measures, designed to eradicate this community. Many activist are asking whether the ultimate goal of “African nationalism”, isn’t perhaps to bring about Afrikaner genocide under the guise of the ANC’s “transformation” agenda.
One activist, put is this way:
Apparently, Afrikaners do not have the right to protest against African Nationalist oppression because [according to popular opinion] there’s just, NOT ENOUGH:
1) Job reservation laws
2) Tortured and murdered victims
3) Spatial laws designed to dissolve their communities
4) Afrikaans schools transformed
5) Afrikaner businesses looted [of assets], by means of forced BBB -EE (Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment) shareholding
6) Poor and destitute Afrikaners
7) Hate Speech directed at this vulnerable minority.
The activist then ventures this question;
“When exactly will we reach that point where we qualify to be called victims?”
This question is indeed valid and important, in that it addresses the urgency of identifying human rights infringements in the current discourse about perceived “victimhood” in South Africa.
When does restitutive interventions of government, infringe so severely on the livelihood of minorities that it becomes oppressive and deadly?
When does the “legislating victim” – become the “oppressive monster”?
When does it become justified, to resist oppression … violently
Slow-motion genocide: Hiding genocide in modern times.
By Jacques Mare -
Pretoria, South Africa
12 October, 2013
Man have been murdering man, en masse since time immemorial.
Most mass deaths had generally taken place in ancient times on the battlefield. The victor, in many cases would then carry over this murderous rage from the battlefield, to slaughter the civilian population (of the vanquished enemy) in acts of flash genocide.
In modern times however the perpetrators of mass murder, almost exclusively make use of the functions of state to achieve these horrible outcomes, and usually it is directed at a vulnerable minority in times of peace.
That in short, is the nature of the modern beast.
It is very clear that the perpetrators in all successful modern cases, had been cognizant of the wrongfulness of their intentions and the results of their actions, and yet they continued with their horrible plans by successfully propagating their political ideology to the masses, using very effective means, like advertising.
It is also notable how the modern demon will try and camouflage its murderous policies, by garnishing it with idealistic, positive nation building terminology usually containing some form of patriotic rhetoric- but the devastation of the target group, is always the outcome.
Slow-motion genocide is not a widely accepted phenomenon, because it is very difficult to distinguish between normal population change dynamics and carefully engineered techniques to drive populations or ethnic groups away.
It is also difficult to label it as an atrocity if there aren’t visuals available to show the dead of the target group piled up in heaps.
“Time-lapse reporting” may be helpful to track changes in population migration, demographic history of areas, legislation imposed and the effect it has on target groups.
Regularly (and accurately) updated lists of murdered community members, are also very helpful and this method is very successfully employed by the #Afrikaners of South Africa to compile a database of victims.
Very few international genocide watch groups keep track of these long-term changes however, and even fewer will publicly acknowledge that negative (devastating) changes to target communities are due to political intervention – especially, if the country or territory in question, is widely perceived by the international community to be stable and peaceful.
It is for that reason that terms like:
*Long-period outcomes based eradication
*Broad-based marginalization – rarely makes it into the discourse about mass atrocities.
Here are some very disturbing trends in genocide propaganda terminology, that have lead to mass atrocities in the past, or may very soon:
*Social engineering, etc
Soon to be on the same list?:
*African Nationalist Transformation (in South Africa)?
For those who doubt the validity of this discussion, or that of the terms describing slow-motion genocide, consider the case of the West Papua community. rnzi.com reports the following:
An Australian academic says West Papuans have been subject to a slow-motion genocide and the United Nations should step in.
Jim Elmslie, of the University of Sydney’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, is the co-author of a just-released report titled ’A Slow-Motion Genocide – Indonesian Rule in West Papua’.
Dr Elmslie says the report concludes the Indonesian Government has intentionally carried out genocidal policies for the past 50 years.
Under the United Nations Genocide Convention, the classification of an act as ’genocide’ requires proven intent.
Amelia Langford asked Jim Elmslie about the findings of the report [in an interview]
JIM ELMSLIE: We believe that a slow-motion genocide is and has been occurring in West Papua. It’s a very deep-seated and difficult problem for everybody involved, including Indonesia. And it’s a problem I think needs a lot more attention because it’s festering away, getting worse, and the Papuans are suffering quite badly now, or they have been for many decades.
AMELIA LANGFORD: What do you mean by ’slow-motion genocide’?
JE: Well, it’s a term that was first used by a man called Clemens Runawery, who’s deceased now, who was a West Papuan who thought about what was happening to his country and his people, and he compared it with disasters like had happened in Rwanda, where a large number of people were killed quickly in a sort of turmoil, a catastrophic series of events. In West Papua, the situation has gone on for decades, and over that period, cumulatively, many thousands of people have died, but not in a short, sharp burst that many people tend to associate with the word ’genocide’. So that’s why we’ve used that term, that it’s a process that’s unfolded over decades, but it’s a genocide in the sense that the killings fall within the definition of the UN convention on genocide.
AL: And tell me about the paper’s findings and what you set out to find or explore.
JE: Well, we set out to explore the whole issue of genocide, really, that many West Papuan people – leaders right down to the grassroots people – often describe what’s happened to them since the Indonesians took over the place as a genocide. And that word has a pretty specific meaning under the international convention. And there’s various acts that fall into the definition of ’genocide’, including the intentional killing of members of a group or conflicting conditions that make life difficult. And most of those acts have been carried out there, people would agree they’ve been carried out. But then the other aspect of fulfilling the criteria of being called a genocide is there’s some element of intentional government policy or there’s intent – the word ’intent’ is the critical word.
Jim Elmslie says parties to the Genocide Convention have a responsibility to look into genocide claims.
Is this slow-motion genocide?
Moreover, ask yourself whether the Afrikaner community of South Africa isn’t also experiencing similar treatment by their government.
Is it racist, and an act of genocide:
*To exclusively address social problems on the base of ethnicity?
*To enact legislation to economically deprive a minority?
*To bar minorities from employment by means of quota systems etc. and plummeting a significant amount into abject poverty?
*To redirect the functions of state and security, away from service to a vulnerable community, thereby leaving them open to attacks by looting gangs from the majority population?
*To drive minorities from their schools and attacking their use of mother-tongue education?
*To sing hate speech songs and calling them “outsiders”?
*To vilify any defiance action, however peacefully achieved, as “racist”?
*To invade and destroy their communities through “spatial planning” legislation, clearly aimed at driving them from their traditional homes?
*To loot their cultural heritage, by changing names of towns, cities and areas originally named and settled by them.
* To destroy their national identity by denying their existence, unless of course it is employed to vilify them.
*To destroy their symbols of national pride through neglect, like historical graveyards, battlefield sites etc.
Will the Afrikaners soon be eradicated from South Africa like the white Zimbanwean from Zimbabwe?
When does “social engineering” for the greater good, amount to slow motion genocide?
Inspiration for this story comes from this article about the slow-motion genocide of the West Papua community:
27 October 2011
Economic strangulation of Afrikaners by the ANC, continues unabated.
Today Julius Malema and the ANC Youth League marched on the JSE (Johannesburg Stock Exchange) to protest various issues related to poverty. They are demanding employment, housing, electricity and running water for all.
Marching to the these bastions of economic greed (phraseology from the Occupy-campaign) is a powerful way of expressing the urgency of the need to uplift communities, and especially the black (or as they prefer, the African) citizens of this country.
How do we know that this ANC campaign is not perhaps inclusive of all South Africans?
We only have to listen to the rantings of the genocidal leader of the ANCYL (African National Congress – Youth League) to understand, what this revolution is about – taking from the whites…’who came to Africa with nothing’… and re-distributing it to the masses of impoverished blacks.
This very self-centered and egotistical demagogue – claims to be fighting for the poor, and yet his aspirations to become the next leader of the ANC is quite clear – he is even actively enriching himself, at the cost of the poor and downtrodden.
Julius is under the impression that you can take from those ‘that have’ and give to those that ‘don’t have’ – and miraculously, equality will be achieved.
Mr. Malema does not seem to understand the concept of sustainability, i.e. that ‘wealth’ isn’t just a tangible thing, but a living system that creates affluence.
The internationally acceptable way to achieve these goals is to work for, and create opportunities that will produce wealth.
Wealth, (or relative wealth) is therefore , created – and because the person who owns these ‘supposed’ riches worked for it they posses intimate knowledge of how to repeat the cycle, and to sustain this position.
Taking from those that ‘have’, and giving it to those that don’t, does not constitute a workable self-sustaining solution – once the wealth is ‘used up’, where are these socialists going to find more capitalists to loot from?
Also this wealth cannot be maintained without the proper systems in place – kill the system, and you’re killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.
The myth of upliftment through oppression of minorities.
South Africa is the only country in the world where it is acceptable to discriminate against minorities, even when all forms of discrimination is outlawed in the Constitution of the Republic.
Even the international community seems to want to tolerate (to a certain extent) the injustice of discrimination against the Afrikaner community, because of their Apartheid past. Lately the latter has come to re-think their unconditional acceptance of everything the ANC does as good and proper.
Many questions about corruption, nepotism, racism, self-enrichment and actions blatantly in opposition to the human rights clauses of the Constitution, has made many Western countries re-think their stance.
The ANC is ‘willfully’ and ‘deliberately’ following a path that will ultimately lead to the nullification of this highly celebrated constitution, and lead to anarchy.
The ‘world’ awakes to the reality of ANC rule.
The last few weeks saw a flurry of letters written by Afrikaners and other international activists to the Dutch government, beseeching the latter, to intervene in the silent murder of the Afrikaner People.
This has lead to various articles published in Dutch and Flemish papers discussing the failure of the ANC to comply with their own struggle manifesto.
Some of the following links are only available in Dutch/Flemish but the reader may find ‘Google-translate’ useful.
- Censorbugbear Reports – Writing campaign to Dutch parliament highlights Afrikaner plight
The effect on the Afrikaner minority.
In the mean time, the Afrikaner minority is battling to survive what they call: ‘The third struggle for Freedom ‘- (Die Derde Vryheidstryd). The first and second, refers to the First- and Second Anglo/Boer Wars, that defined and molded these brave People into a nation recognized by the international community.
For some, the battle to maintain ones identity and culture seem to be over, and assimilation the only way to survive the ‘poverty-stranglehold’ of the ANC regime.
Meet Marius Nel (45), he is an Afrikaner who’s found refuge in the local township of KwaNoxolo ouside of Port Elizabeth in the arms of his wife Leana. They have two kids Leandre and Qiano. Marius is a mechanic by trade and owns a ‘scrapyard’ in the township.
He says he’s lived in the township for the last 16 years.
He says living in here, does have its benefits like, the fact that most things are cheaper than in town.
He says he lives in a shack and dreams of one day owning his own RDP (Reconstruction and Development Program – House), free housing promised by the ANC.
He says many of his neighbors in the township resents his presence, because they claim that he doesn’t belong there – reminiscent of the recent xenophobic attacks on foreigners in many townships.
In fact, very recently photographs of hate-speech graffiti, surfaced on the internet, of which the following is a prime example.
Maruis now lives the life envisaged for him by the African National Congress – one, where he forms part of an integrated, non-racist, non-sexist South African society.
He is living a life of dejection, alienated from his People and his language. He’s learned that integration, means that one must necessarily deny ones roots and ones values – and comply with whatever the ANC wants.
He also understands that because he is ‘white’, he does not qualify to be called ‘previously disadvantaged’ and therefor, cannot be employed to feed his ‘mixed-race’ children.
Despite all of this, Marius still manages to contribute to his community and he even employs some of the residents to help him in his workshop.
The Post-Apartheid hero of the Struggle
Tomorrow Julius Malema, will lead the masses to the Union Buildings in Pretoria, where they will demand that the government acts to change the circumstances of many impoverished people.
He will rant and rave - and blame the ills of those who ‘don’t have’, on the embattled white minority Afrikaners.
He will also – as we have come to know him by now - use ‘hate-speech’, to call for the annihilation of the Boer/Afrikaner minority with their ‘new song’: ” Kill the Whites”.
One cannot help to wonder, how long it will be before the masses see through his act and turn on him.
Boere-Afrikaner Council delivers notice of intent to ANC regime
The newly elected Boere-Afrikaner Council delivered a letter on the 26th of October 2011 to the ANC governement stating its intent to seek independence for the Afrikaner community - according to the mandate given to it by the Afrikaner electorate during the recent elections.
This is the first step for towards self-determination for Afrikaners. The ANC is now knowledgeable of the fact, that this nation will not tolerate oppression and will now actively seek ways, to find an independent existence in order to preserve their identity as a People.

‘Protection pact’ signed between Afrikaner resistance movements
Introduction (Source: TNA) :
By: De Wet Potgieter
Three major white rightwing organisations have signed a co-operation pact that includes joint paramilitary training for their members.
The Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB), the Suidlanders and the Commando Corps say their intention is protect their people “once the black revolution starts”.
Col Franz Jooste, executive director of the Commando Corps, confirmed to The New Age yesterday that he and Steyn von Ronge (AWB) and Gustav Muller (Suidlanders) agreed on the pact when they met two Saturdays ago in the historic homestead of a former Boer general on a farm in the Free State.
The “Saamstaanverdrag” (pact to stand together) would be signed in Pretoria today, he said. “We have agreed to stand together on several levels of joint operations, but the most important one is to coordinate our security strategy to protect our own people once the black revolution starts.”
The “crisis of farm murders” had played a major role in the decision for the three organisations to embark on a joint strategy of paramilitary training.
In a recent exclusive report, The New Age revealed that young white South Africans were taking part in secret military training exercises on farms across the country, where they are taught to defend themselves against “crime and bloodshed”.
Over weekends and during school holidays, about 1000 young whites go into the bush for boot camps, where border war veterans train them in parade ground drill, handling of firearms and self-defence.
“It is a matter of survival for our people,” said Jooste, who was one of the instructors who trained murdered AWB leader Eugene Terre’Blanche’s elite Ystergarde (Iron Guard) unit during the 1980s.
The Commando Corps has also embarked on a major recruitment campaign to revive the old commando system. “This will be a security network spanning all of South Africa, but it will only be for whites,” Jooste said.
“We do not want to attack anybody and do not want to threaten anybody. We only want to protect our own people and our own land; therefore, we have decided to reform the commandos again.”
In a follow-up interview, I asked Col Jooste for his thoughts on how viable the pact is.
Jooste: “Well we’ve signed the agreement this afternoon and we are positive that it will work. For the first time, in a very long time the three organizations will be working together on security matters.”
I asked him whether they will consider working together with other community or private groups. He says that they don’t have any problem to work together, but emphasized that their organization is geared towards protecting its members, in contrast to other groups that aim to protect the community as a whole, like the Community Police Forum.
It does seem from the above as though Afrikaners and most persons from ethnic European descent, are beginning to see the value of a united front to resist the ANC regime.
Interaction and Conflict
There was still something else that bothered me, that I felt needed to addressed – Nobody bothered to ask the question whether the possibility – that conflict may follow as a result of interaction between the alliance, and the ANC police force or the Community Police Forum – may exist
I took the question to Col Jooste and he responded as follows:
“Look we do have a working relationship with the Police, our commando in Rustenburg has a very good relationship with the local CPF – indeed most of our commando’s all over the country are working closely with them and the police”
In response to the same inquiry, a member of the CPF command structure, had this to say when asked how the situation should be dealt with, if members from multiple organizations responds to the same incident:
” At the end of the day”… “everyone must extract themselves from the scene” … ( excluding emergency personnel and the Police) … “to allow the police to do their work”.
“We still live in a democracy…” (with a functional government) …”where the courts and police go hand in hand” …. (to protect society and secure justice). The CPF’s role is, to secure the scene until the police arrive to take control”.
It seems a s though every thing is falling in place for a massive onslaught against crime in our country as portrayed by the willingness by all parties to make this work. There is however one other major problem.
Storm Clouds Gathering
How long will we still be able to enjoy the benefits of a ‘functional government’ when many writers are already referring to South Africa as a ‘failing’ or a ‘failed state’? Politicsweb -Documenting South Africa`s decline. It is well documented how this government is failing its citizens in various ways and across almost all government departments. Service delivery protests are a common sight and hundreds of people have already lost their lives because of police action and in police custody.
The list of government failures is extensive and makes for depressive reading. Everyday we are confronted with horror stories in the national media of miss-management, fraud, corruption and failure to deliver on election promises.
In addition to this downward spiral, we have to face the possibility that this regime ( instead of changing their policies and cleaning up their act) would rather blame minorities in trying to hide their failures and, are now actively seeking ways to punish them. One example, is the ludicrous suggestion by the arch bishop Desmond Tutu that the government should promulgate extortion laws to steal ‘White’ wealth – typical of a ‘thug’ government, aka dictatorship.
It is also beginning to look as though our government has decided to adopt Robert Mugabe’s strategies of ‘ethnic cleansing’, to rid South Africa of its White minority.
Mike Smith, in his excellent commentary here, points to the blatant attempt of the ANC to recreate conditions of forced expropriation ala Zimbabwe style – not by using legal ‘ways-and-means’, but by creating a ‘government sponsored youth militia’ to engage in activities of intimidation, terrorism and murder to liberate the land from the previous oppressor.
“These youths (in Zimbabwe) were guilty of murder, torture, rape, voter intimidation, destruction of property, attacks on businesses, disruption of opposition MDC rallies and ultimately invasions of white owned farms, killing farmers and their families and chasing them off their land.
Just like Mugabe founded the National Youth Services to aid with “Land Reform” in rural areas, the ANC founded the National Rural Youth Service Corps (NARYSEC) under the guidance of the Ministry of Rural Development and the Ministry of Defense.”
This youth militia (8000 of them), will be trained at two military bases at… “Saldanha and Bloemfontein (De Brug).”
The stage is set …..
South Africans are readying themselves for action.
Alliances have been formed, protection agreements signed – everywhere, youngsters are subject to military styled training to defend lives or initiate change.
Nobody is mentioning the possibility that these ‘para-military forces’ or ‘militias’ are bound to run into one another at some point.
Nobody wants to think about the result of this possible interaction.
Nobody dares to mention that the stage is set for major conflict based on ‘incompatible ideologies’ and ‘ethnicity’.
How will we react in our unity to the challenge, when the ANC’s own youth militia will act like this – and, there’s every indication that they will act like Mugabe’s youth brigade :
….. They (will)…”have an ambivalent relationship with law enforcing agencies including the army and police. On the whole, the youth militia…” (will)…” have impunity,…” (will) often work(-ing ) under the direction of war veterans and alongside government agencies in their illegal activities. They are…” (will)…” seldom (be) arrested or prevented from breaking the law.”
Now is the time to rise above our circumstances, our petty differences and realize that this stage had been set many years ago – nay, ….many decades ago, and it is the descendents of those brave Afrikaner pioneers that will have to show their worth and battle for their very existence….
But I will not fear the future, because I know my People and I know their resolve, their brave fighting spirit, their will to survive.

VVK Registration campaign in Daspoort
By J. Maré
Yesterday saw many people in the poverty-stricken community of Daspoort in Pretoria, register for the Volksraad-council elections, later this year. People came from all over the Wesmoot to register. In addition to the registration officials, representatives of the Doulos Armoede Bediening (Doulos Ministries), Angels At Work (Facebook-Page) and the Afrikaner Journal were present.
The response to the call for registration was so great that the 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 through-out the day. Despite their circumstances, community members have shown a great deal of resilience in resisting the relentless onslaught by the ANC Metro-council to disposes them of their homes.
This was just another step in the fight for dignity – placing their names on the voters role, to make sure that their voice will be heard by a council, elected from among their own.
Forced removals pending
This community in Daspoort faces forced evictions by the ANC city council (Tshwane Metro Council).
The ANC has already targeted one property owner and has furthermore identified the structures (homes) to be demolished. It is just a matter of time before the order will be given to destroy the lives of this embattled community.
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.
According to Ms Stroebel, the council has yet to announce its intend, to move them and provide suitable homes for them within their communities and among those who share their language and cultural identity.
The council, obliged to act according to the SA constitution, must offer alternative housing for those they intend to evict. No word from them about how they plan to solve this dilemma. Not only do face creating a humanitarian crisis, but this situation can very easily turn into severe ‘human rights’ violations by the newly elected ANC council.
In addition, activists are claiming that the ANC is biased in their approach towards members of different race groups. They claim that the ANC’s concerns, that this type of accommodation violates building regulations, is bogus and intend to be deliberately malicious towards members of this race group, because they (the ANC) allow black people from outside these communities to erect dilapidated structures anywhere they like, and in many cases ,choose to ignore the health and safety risks posed by such shanty towns.
How does the VVK fit into the picture?
The VVK (The independent registration council for the Volksraad elections) came into being as a body that facilitates registration of all eligible persons on the voters roll for a future election, to set up a legitimate Afrikaners/Boer governing council.
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), will be the modern equivalent of the governing body that governed the Boer Republics during the brief period of our independence in the late nineteenth century. Each of the Boer republics was governed by a Volksraad (council), consisting of democratically elected representatives from among the Afrikaner/ Boer population.
The need for a council became clear after 1994 when the Afrikaners/Boers found that their political voice in the ‘New South Africa’ has reduced to a mere whisper. The situation has deteriorated to such en extend that there’s now, no political party in the NSA that represents this nation in the South African parliament. The ANC has therefore had a field day in establishing the most polarized society in the world. They managed to pass many racist and blatant genocidal laws to express their policies.

The National Council (Volksraad) will deal with the following emergency issues in addition to the issue of self-determination:
- ANC laws causing severe poverty
ANC laws have resulted in severe poverty among an estimated 800 000 Afrikaners and 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:
“… the ANC regime has managed to marginalize… “Afrikaners”, by introducing legislation to bar members of this group, from almost all economic activity, by means of racist job reservation legislation.
The effect of the above racist policy is an increase of 150% in the number of abject poverty-stricken members in those communities – the estimated number of poor has reached a mind-boggling (conservative figure) of 600 000 out of population of 4 million. This, expressed as a percentage, amounts to 15% of the population.
At this rate, the ANC will keep on harming and impoverishing this specific community 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”
- The Afrikaner Diaspora (Boer 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.
Censorbugbear Reports, commented on the issue of the number of South African refugees internationally:
There are 170 South Africans with legal 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
- Internal Displaced Persons (IDP’s)
Those Afrikaners/Boers, not in the position to flee this systematic genocide, have become internal displaced persons in the country of their birth. They live in squalor, in camps – in and around the major cities. It was in one of these communities that registration for the council election took place.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 and in it John Holmes, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, notes the following:
More than 27 million people were uprooted by violence within their countries in 2009, the highest number since the mid-1990s, according to a new United Nations-backed study.
The term IDP 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.
If the UN definition, acknowledges the conditions of internally displaced Afrikaners – shouldn’t this situation be recognized as such and their status recognized, in order to make relief efforts available?
or, is the UN secretly giving the ANC regimes racist legislation (and the cause of this displacement) a nod of consent?
In addition to this, Censorbugbear Reports, reported in May 2011:
Farmitracker also records another ominous trend - namely the ANC-regime’s refusal to provide any kind of food-aid to Afrikaner charities; and its very deliberate persecution of private individuals and private charities which dare to help destitute Afrikaner internal refugees.
Many of these people are waging an increasingly desperate battle to keep these hundreds of thousands of destitute Afrikaners who are floating around the countryside alive, fed and housed each day.
These emergency issues mentioned here, is by no means complete, but represents the most pressing needs.
If yesterdays response is anything to go by, the VVK may have to consider establishing an interim council to deal with the immediate needs in our communities.

- MORE AFRIKANERS LOSING THE BATTLE FOR DIGNITY, TO POVERTY
10 July 2011
By, J. Mare
ANC laments the restrictive powers of the constitution.
Jacob Zuma in an address at the third ‘Access to Justice conference’, Pretoria (08/07/2011) declared the following:
“Esteemed members of the judiciary,
While acknowledging the strides we have made, it is our well-considered view that there is a need to distinguish the areas of responsibility between the judiciary and the elected branches of government, especially with regards to government policy formulation.
The Executive, as elected officials, has the sole discretion to decide policies for government.
This challenge is perhaps articulated clearly by Justice VR Krishna Lyer of India who observed that: “Legality is within the courts’ province to pronounce upon, but canons of political propriety and democratic dharma are polemic issues on which judicial silence is the golden rule.”
This means that once government has decided on the appropriate policies, the judiciary cannot, when striking down legislation or parts thereof on the basis of illegality, raise that as an opportunity to change the policies as determined by the Executive area of government.
There is no doubt that the principle of separation of powers must reign supreme to enable the efficiency and integrity of the various arms of the State in executing their mandates.
Encroachment of one arm on the terrain of another should be frowned upon by others, and there must be no bias in this regard.
In as much as we seek to respect the powers and role conferred by our Constitution on the legislature and the judiciary, we expect the same from these very important institutions of our democratic dispensation.
The Executive must be allowed to conduct its administration and policy making work as freely as it possibly can.
The powers conferred on the courts cannot be superior to the powers resulting from the political and consequently administrative mandate resulting from popular democratic elections.
Political disputes resulting from the exercise of powers that have been constitutionally conferred on the ruling party through a popular vote must not be subverted, simply because those who disagree with the ruling party politically, and who cannot win the popular vote during elections, feel other arms of the State are avenues to help them co-govern the country.
This interferes with the independence of the judiciary. Political battles must be fought on political platforms.”
He then goes on to say the following:
“Ladies and gentlemen,
As the Executive, we remain committed to the independence of the judiciary as entailed in our Constitution.
We maintain that the integrity of our Constitution is beyond doubt and the Constitutional Court remains the primary custodian of the Supreme Law in the land.”
The ANC finds itself in a predicament.
It seems from the above – as though the independence of the courts, in judging the effectiveness of the ‘ANC executive’s powers’ and ‘policies’ – (as reflected in the laws passed by this murderous regime) is a very big problem for the ANC.
How do you effect change and implement ‘unfair’ and ‘racist’ policies, if the very constitution condemning and prohibiting such acts, stands firmly in the way of what your organization deem necessary.
There are a few ways.
You attack the guardians of the constitution (the courts) and insist that they ‘should not’ do the work they were mandated to do.
You claim unfair political interference by the courts.
You claim unfair dominance by the courts.
What is the ANC really saying?
They are in effect saying is that this situation is not working for them. They feel powerless to do their job of transforming the country into the ‘communist utopia’ they envisaged for it prior to 1994. The very same principles of equality and fairness that are suppose to guarantee everybody’s freedom are now a problem for them.
In fact, one can take this even further and state that the ‘freedom charter’ itself is now under siege. This document, adopted by the ruling party, insists that, ‘South Africa belongs to all who lives in it’. How is it possible that this very document and its’ legal version, the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa could be such a problem for the ANC.
Isn’t everybody’s status as equal citizens guaranteed?
Doesn’t it provide for a ‘one man, one vote’ democratically elected government?
Doesn’t it have ‘checks and balances’ that will safeguard everybody from a dictatorial government?
ANC needs anarchy to achieve its’ goals
It seems to be clear that the constitutions and by extension, the judiciary is doing an excellent job in curbing the governing regimes pursuits to pervert the principles of our constitution. In fact it is so effective that the one can say it almost resembles the judicial principle of ‘the Rule of Law’ in civilized countries.
This may not be the case for longer. The ANC needs the constitution to be unequal, biased and in favor of suspending the rights of some citizens to meet its goals.
The ANC has no choice but to, either put inappropriate pressure on the judiciary to ‘not judge in favour of the constitution’, or its gonna have to implement even more severe measures, like suspending many ‘human rights’ principles of the constitution to ‘legally’ bully their laws into existence.
The final choice
So what will this regime decide?
How will it approach this dilemma?
It is not unheard of for governments to change constitutions to be more in line with governing party principles. This regime however cannot afford the fall-out should they decide to go this way.
Isn’t this the most celebrated constitution in the world?
It was hailed as the most liberal, ‘human rights’ document, to become the highest law of any country in the world. South Africa received praise for it from all over the world. How can the ANC afford to touch even one line without having to explain how this perfect document failed its’ citizens?
They won’t be able to offer any satisfactory explanation and the only option left is anarchy. Sitting back and letting the people pursue their own justice, retribution, redress and restitution.
In short, allowing anarchy.
