European MPs from 19 countries and 7 out of its 8 political formations condemn the murder-campaign against Afrikaner farmers: European Parliament, Brussels – 6 March 2012:

Brussels, EP: 48 European MPs from 19 countries in 7 political formations support a statement firmly condemning the ANC-regime for failing to protect the white Afrikaans-speaking farming-community from on ongoing murder-campaign targetting this small ethnic minority in SA. Signing the motion — demanding that the ANC-regime must take urgent measures to protect its white farming community — were socialists, liberals, Christian-democrats, the Euro-critics of the EFD and the ECR formations, and even a member of the Communist fraction: 7 of the 8 European political formations signed the motion condemning the farm-murders.

The Greens were the only EP-fraction considering the murders of white SA farmers morally acceptable

Feb 2 2012: Transvaal Agricultural Union VP Henk van de Graaf shocked the European MPs when he showed them the graphic forensic murder-scenes from the cruel murder-campaign which Afrikaans-speaking South African farmers are being targetted by.

As a result of Van de Graaf’s multi-lingual presentation, 48 MPs from 19 different European countries signed the motion condemning the murders and demanding that the ANC regime take urgent steps to protect the white Afrikaans-speaking farmers of South Africa.

“The only faction which apparently considers the murders of white SA farmers morally acceptable, were the Greens,’ said Flemish MP Philip Claeys in a media statement. The initiative for the successful motion was taken by Claeys, Andreas Mölzer (FPÖ, Austria) and Fiorello Provera (Lega Nord, Italy) with the close cooperation of MP Louis Michel (Belgium);

The 48 European MPs joined in signing the motion – which sharply condemns the wave of farm-attacks targetting white SA farmers. The declation emphases the ‘deep concern’ felt by the 48 European MPs; points out the “systematic character of the attacks on white farmers” – and asks the ANC-regime to ‘take urgent measures to increase the security of white farmers’ in their country.”

“Our protests against these unacceptable South African farm-murders thus is sounded across all the European borders and all but one of the party-political fractions,’ said Claeys. “It also is extraordinary to note that the only political formation which did not have any members sign this motion, were the Greens, which includes the Flemish MP Frieda Brepoets. Our party mourns the fact that the mass-murder campaign targetting white Afrikaans-speaking farmers in South Africa is apparently morally acceptable to the Greens,’ he concluded – fractie.europa@vlaamsbelang.org

The successful motion in the European Parliament is seen as the direct result of a presentation held at a European Parliamentary conference on the issue – by Transvaal Agricultural Union vice-president Henk van de Graaf on Feb 2, 2012 in Brussels.

SA environment, health in critical meltdown: WEF warns

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

13 Feb 2012 – The World Economic Forum warns SA’s eco-system is deteriorating so fast after 2 decades under ANC-hegemony that it’s placed at 128th worst out of 132 countries surveyed…

SA’s once so brilliant nature reserves, water-system, agriculture and fisheries have deteriorated nearly the fastest in the world under the ANC terrorist regime since 1992: and things will get even worse. The fraudulent regime insists on building a series of nuclear reactors along its pristine coastline…

The World Economic Forum announced its findings of the current state of 132 countries’ eco-systems since 1992: and South Africa has deteriorated so badly that it is placed at 128th place. Iraq is the worst, Switzerland looks after its environment and its people’s health the best in the world. These were the findings of scientist-teams at the Yale and Columbia universities in cooperation with the World Economic Forum.

They compared 132 countries’ eco-systems and human-health situations in 2011 with those same countries in 1992.

The report warns that the population’s health, its air- and water-quality, its biodiversity, its ecosystems’ fuctioning, its agriculture- and fishing industries all have ‘seriously deteriorated’.

Yet with its population’s health at such horrific risks from its rapidly-deteriorating eco-system, the ANC regime still insists on pressing ahead with its disastrous R1-trillion-costing plan to build a string of nuclear power plants along its once so pristine coastline – starting in Jeffrey’s Bay – the world-famous ‘endless wave’ recorded in the surfers’ cult-movie ‘Endless Summer…’ The WEF analysis can be downloaded by first registering at: www.epi.yale.edu

International surfing communities up in arms: “No nukes for Jeffrey’s Bay, they warn

The editor of Jeffrey’s Bay News writes that it is inexplicable for SA to steam so relentlessly ahead with its nuclear-plants plans, noting: …’As countries like Switzerland, Germany and Italy start moving away from nuclear energy, it is becoming increasingly difficult to understand why South Africa wants to invest over R 1-trillion in building a fleet of nuclear power plants. (Yet )in South Africa, we want to generate 20,000 megawatts of nuclear power through 6 nuclear power stations situated around the coastline.

“Thyspunt, near Jeffreys Bay has been identified by Eskom as the preferred site for the first of these nuclear reactors, despite material flaws in the Impact Studies that will give community organisations more than enough ammunition to fight the proposed development in court for years to come.

“Tourism remains one of the key economic drivers in the wider Jeffreys Bay region, and the international surf community have made their views known about a nuke that will have an impact on the world class surf breaks found in the bay. The Impact Studies actually admit that Seal Point will be affected by the dumping of thousands of tons of sand into the ocean during the construction phase.

“No mention is made on how long it will take for the spoil to disperse either.

“The stricken nuclear power plant Fukushima is still in a critical state, nearly a year after it melted down and started spewing radiocative waste into the atmosphere, causing a 30 km evacuation zone to be declared.

“The plant started heating up again this week, causing fears that even more radiation will be released. The operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant has begun injecting more water into one of the reactors, after the core temperature rose above Japan’s safety limit.

“South Africa cannot afford to put the lives of our citizens at potential risk, nor can we impact on our tourism industry which will be the life blood of Jeffreys Bay for decades to come. Neither can we afford the R 1 trillion to construct the nuclear power stations.

“This deal has the potential to make the arms deal (*which turned into a massive bribery-scandal) look tame in comparision.”

“Surely renewable energy is the only viable solution to South Africa’s future energy requirements?” he asked.”

ANC land-policy turns Blacks into poor state tenants

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

Democratic Alliance MP Lindiwe Mazibuko warns that ‘the vast majority of the black beneficiaries of the ‘land redistribution’ scheme’ are merely ‘tenants on state-owned land” – 29 September 2011.

Mazibuko: “The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform’s 2010/11 annual report has revealed that 85.6% of land purchased from land-owners for the purposes of land reform has been transferred to land claimants under leasehold, while only 14.4% of claimants have been awarded full ownership rights.According to the annual report, a total of 322,844.9931hectares of land was ‘ transferred to beneficiaries ‘ in the 2010/11 financial year. However – these ‘beneficiaries’ remain very poor and cannot improve their land because some 85% of them remain tenants on state-owned land.

And such tenants on State-owned land cannot use their ‘land-rights’ as collateral to borrow with banks to improve their land-parcels with because the land belongs to the State.

Mazibuko points out”Not only does this prevent the land from being used as loan collateral, but it acts as a disincentive for claimants to invest in the land’s productive capacity. Without the freedom and stability to invest in their properties, claimants are consigned to the status of tenants, and have no incentive to make improvements to the land they have acquired since they bear neither the risk nor the reward associated with running a successful business. Why would claimants devote time and resources to investing in land that is not theirs? This effectively means that the true spirit of the purpose of land reform – the returning of land rights denied during apartheid and the colonial era to black claimants with full ownership rights – is not being adhered to…”

The Democratic Alliance (DA) will soon be making its submission on the Land Reform Green Paper. The Department has today indicated that the deadline for submissions is 31 October. Central to this will be the proposal that the Proactive Land Acquisition Strategy (PLAS), which facilitates the transferring of land to claimants under leasehold, be scrapped. It is essential that all land is transferred with full ownership rights, together with the requisite skills training and financial support, to ensure that land reform is a success.”

Even more ominous is the fact that the regime has lodged yet another new Bill to confiscate even more land, ‘ in the public interest ’

Eyewitness accounts of current local farm-production, Oct 2011

Pieter Oosthuizen commented on Oct 6 2011 that his sister drove last weekend from Jan Kempdorp to Johannesburg – and that along the entire 400km distance, there only were three farms still planted with food-crops. “It used to be one continuous display of productive farms the entire distance. Now, most of the land has been torched and covered in weeds.’

Stephanie Vouros “driving to Witbank on Oct 5 2011, one could only discern barren earth. Outside Ogies there used to be lush farm-lands, now it’s just barren soil as far as the eye can see. Almost as if all the farmers decided to stop planting altogether, or they have been murdered. The farm-houses have broken-out windows and there’s no livestock – and right up to Middelburg it was the same dismal scenery. We are facing a massive famine.’

FARMERS WANT SELF-DEFENCE COMMANDOS

LIMPOPO Letsitele Valley – Local farmers urge reinstatement of the self-defence rural commando system after there were another five farm-murders in their region in February. The latest two farmers to be murdered in South Africa are Belgian farmer Etienne Cannaerts (61), kidnapped and found with his throat slashed near Ellisras/Lephalale on Friday. A day later farm manager Paul Dunn (49), of Constantia Citrus Products in the Letsitele valley outside Tzaneen was shot dead during a fierce gunfight with three attackers inside his homestead. A total of five people were murdered on Limpopo farms in February said Dr. Theo de Jager, vice-president of Agri SA. “People are angry. Many farmers phone me, demanding for the reinstatement of the (citizen-volunteer) commando system.”

The Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa wants the SAPS to acknowledge the legality of their volunteer farm-watch system ‘s use of green flashing lights on their patrol vehicles. “The police insist that green patrol lights are ‘illegal’ and have clashed with TAU-SA several times about their use’, said TAU-SA in a statement issued after the latest farm murders in Limpopo.

Local farmer Japie Ellis of the Lephalale area told Beeld newspaper that Belgian-born farmer Etienne Cannaerts probably was attacked and kidnapped after he had opened his farm gate upon his return from offloading his workers on Friday. “The attackers drove Cannaerts in his own vehicle to a water-pan on the farm, his hands and feet were tied up and his throat was then cut. “His body was found that night on a remote farm road,’ said Ellis. Police superintendent Ronel Otto confirmed that nothing was robbed.

A family friend of the Cannaerts couple Mr Marco Ruiter said the murder was ‘gruesome. “Cannaerts and his wife Ingrid lived on the farm for the past six years. They do not have South African citizenship. We do not want to talk about it. Mr Cannaerts’ body is being shipped to Belgium for a post-mortem examination and he will be buried there,’ said Ruiter.

And Dries Enslin, chairman of Agri-Letaba, said that farm manager Paul Dunn, left, died in the ensuing gunfight after he more than likely was alerted to three attackers breaking into his homestead again – and in the firefight Dunn injured one attacker before he was shot dead. The farm manager was shot in the chest, neck, right arm and back. Superintendent Otto said ‘various household goods were stolen’. The injured attacker was traced by his blood trail followed by local farmers who also used a private helicopter to locate the injured gunman. He’s now under police guard at a local hospital.

Enslin said that in this region alone a total of twelve crime-incidents occurred in the past ten days on Letsitele farms. said Doors Le Roux chairman of TAU-SA in the district. They have asked for an urgent meeting with the local ANC-MEC in charge of security for Limpopo province and police commissioner cdr. Calvin Sengani to ‘discuss the issue’. The Letsitele-area farmers participate in the sector-policing programme of the SAPS and have a ‘good relationship’ with the local police – but that much more obviously needs to be done.As it happens Agri-SA is holding a crime-conference in Centurion on Monday in which the lack of security on farms countrywide will also be ‘discussed’ with Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa.
