Europeans worldwide are losing their rights because they have never built a legal, civil rights organization to fight for their rights in the courts. The following article on AfriForum, a civil rights NGO (Non-Governmental Organization), outlines a structure that we would like to be replicated in all Western countries.
We believe if such an organization had been built in Western countries in the 1950s to represent Europeans and other races took the appropriate action against Governments and against the race relations/equality acts and the genocide of different races was fought against in the courts, we may have reversed the situation that we find ourselves in today for example, instead of the Establishment allowing different races and cultures to be destroyed, it could have been stopped. It is sad to say that conservatism, which is phony nationalism promoted by so-called pro-whites, has really hindered our development because they did not build an Anti-Defamation Council and have not been able to change from their narrow ideas.
If you want such a group to be successful, you must fight for all racial groups. If you fight internationally for indigenous rights, including your own, you will have a better chance at being successful with this organizational setup. When setting up an organization please refer to our Affirmative Action article and ensure you set up a security council with founding members to prevent being penetrated and being taken over by undesirables.
AfriForum is a South African Civil Rights Organization linked to the Solidarity Trade Union which was established in 2006, with a membership of approximately 170,000. Its objective is to encourage the participation of minority groups such as Afrikaners in public debate and civil action. It particularly promotes the protection of Afrikaner culture, has opposed the renaming of streets, and affirmative action within South Africa which it considers a form of discrimination. It aims to mobilize civil society specifically within minority communities in order to take part in the democratic debate.
Its motto is: 'Laat jou stem hoor' English translation: 'Have your say.'
The Solidarity Trade Union (the only Christian Trade Union in South Africa), Legal Fund accepts donations. The website reports on their recent activities.
AfriForum is campaigning on many critical issues for South Africans. Which include:
• Campaigning against the murder of white farmers to be declared as a priority crime.
• Campaigning against corruption. Petitioning against the dangerous practice of Fracking (hydraulic fracturing), in KZN (the province of KwaZulu-Natal or Natal) which refers to the process through which rocks are fractured by a liquid under very high pressure to release natural gas from shale rock deep below the earth.
• Monitoring the drinking and sewage water quality within towns where its branches are active. Due to poor management and enforcement by the water regulator, AfriForum in some cases is intervening to ensure communities have safe and sufficient drinking water.
• Organizing communities at a grassroots level to address among other things, poor service delivery, and unsafe neighborhoods.
• Through AfriForum Youth, they have engaged in the debate about Afrikaans as a language of instruction at the University of the Free State (UFS) where the council voted in December 2015 for English to be the primary medium of instruction.
AfriForum's CEO Kallie Kriel outlined AFriforums goals in an interview:
"We would like to achieve balance in South Africa. True democracy needs alternative voices in order to succeed. While we aren’t a political party, we give alternative ideas and suggestions, where applicable, to the government stance."
"We are open to all races and we stand as an important check and balance in the interests of society as a whole, an example being our action against the government for failing to adhere to its constitutional obligations in dealing with crime."
"In addition, we take on minority issues — their voices need to be heard; one good example being, the fight to retain Afrikaans as a medium of instruction at schools and university levels."
AfriForum Youth Against Hate Speech
The Youth division wishes to achieve cultural freedom for Afrikaners based on a framework of Christian democratic ideals. Currently, young AFrikaaners do not feel they can express their culture, language or religion without prejudice. The Youth division of Afriforum successfully won a civil court case against Julius Malema who repeatedly signs the words, "Kill the Boer," at many ANC Youth League gatherings. Judge Collin Lamont, ruled in favor of the Afriforum and passed a guilty sentence within the High Court in Johannesburg in September 2011. He stated that: "it undermined the dignity of Afrikaners, and was discriminatory and harmful."
This is not the only charge of hate speech that AfriForum has taken to court. They have taken other individuals including Ronald Lamola of the ANC Youth League who stated their political party would not guarantee the safety of Afrikaans who refused to give up their lands and mineral rights voluntarily. They also put in a complaint against Jason Mfusi, the leader of SASCO who stated on Social Networking sites: “My grandfather says a good farmer is a dead farmer.”
In all these cases, the Afriforum were successful with the outcomes in their favor.
The Afriforum are committed to promoting multilingualism within the country. Their latest campaign is with the University of Pretoria who is currently considering switching all their lectures to English only. The Youth division had been attempting to resolve this through discussion with no avail so a campaign has now begun to ensure all students are protected and given equal opportunities for learning.
Kriel believes the EFF has an agenda behind this and is part of a larger campaign:
"According to AfriForum, the EFF’s fight against Afrikaans is just a next step in their campaign to disrupt the campus with a view to mobilisation and the creation of publicity for the forthcoming municipal elections."
This is not the first time there have been violent hate protests against Afrikaners who were upset about the lack of diversity in their universities. The EFF violently assaulted white students with whips at the Elsenburg Agricultural College during an illegal and aggressive protest.
Afriforum Against the EFF
The EFF have shown increasing levels of violence against and Afrikaners (Boers) especially since Malema took over as President. Afriforum is continually trying to step up and provide a rational counter argument to their violence through numerous court cases, negotiations and media campaigns. Recently the EFF defaced many Afrikaner street signs in Pretoria by spray painting the letters 'EFF' over the name. Ian Cameron, the AfriForum Youth's spokesperson made the following statement:
“It is clear that the EFF remains a radical ‘blacks only’ political party. Their actions prove to citizens that there is no place for Afrikaner heritage in this country,”
“Our actions aim to broaden mutual acknowledgement and respect for one another’s culture and heritage, not to detract from it. To paint over someone else’s culture is not the way to respect their heritage.”
Genocide of Afrikaner Farmers
This organization has regularly criticized the government for its blatant disregard of the serious problem of farm murders. AfriForum activists are petitioning for farm murders to be declared a priority crime. They have raised widespread local awareness and increased international awareness of the problem by means of several campaigns including ‘Stop the Murders’ campaign.
In 2011, 25% of South Africa was owned and managed by the State. The majority of white-owned land is handled by commercial farmers who are the primary South African food producers. Alarmingly their numbers are dwindling rapidly with latest estimates showing approximately 30,000 farmers left. Fifteen years ago there were 60,000 white/Afrikaner farmers, yet the African Government does not feel there are any issues.
In 2010 a legal team for AfriForum representing farmers in Zimbabwe won a court bid to sue Zimbabwe's government over its “cruel” and “vengeful” expropriation of South African-owned farms. In 2008 the regional court SADC tribunal ruled that Zimbabwe's land reform was illegal and racist, and that those who had suffered discrimination by having their farms expropriated had the right to compensation.
AfriForum’s started a Community Safety Department to promote the safety of citizens within communities. Its main emphasis is to establish safety structures including neighborhood watches, farm watches, community forums and radio networks. In 2011 AfriForum commissioned Professor Rudolph Zinn of UNISA to conduct research into successful community safety structures in South Africa. The research has led to the compilation of a community safety handbook that has been implemented in all AfriForum branches countrywide. The department also focuses on the role of government and in particular that of law enforcement agencies and acts as a pressure group so that citizens get the best safety and security possible.
