Plight worsens for white South African farmers

South Africa’s President has confirmed the ruling National Congress will proceed with plans to amend the constitution to allow for the expropriation of  land without compensation.

For the persecuted white minority farmers in the country, this kind of land acquisition could spell more trouble. It’s thought it will exacerbate the already reprehensible violence being perpetrated against the group.

“We’re really heading for a state of anarchy, if something doesn’t change drastically,” says Ian Cameron from AfriForum in South Africa.

“I’m convinced this year we’ll see between 21,000 to 22,000 people having been murder in the past year.”

“There are places where the police simply refuse to act. They don’t know the law well enough or refuse to apply it to logical reasoning when it comes to defending people’s property rights.”

“There is a complete double standard.”

Given Australia took in some 539, 000 migrants last year, Michael McLaren is appealing for the government to allow those impacted to settle here, emphasising that Australia can afford to exercise some selectivity when it comes to our immigration intake. Considering the productivity they would contribute, the decentralisation they would aid, and the assimilation they could render, Michael says they are an obvious choice.

Despite this, it seems the international community is turning a blind eye.

“Why we don’t let these people in, it has got me absolutely beat. It would be in Australia’s interest to invite white South African farmers to come here.”
