THE NEW AMERICAN — “Your time is up, black people!” said the politician.
Actually, no, that would create a media stir. What really was said, by a South African parliamentarian, is “Your time is up, white people” as she referenced a plan to soon begin the seizure of white farmers’ land.
As the Express reports, “The South African National Assembly has agreed to the establishment of a committee that will draft an amendment to section 25 of the Constitution. This law will basically allow the government to force people out of their homes and refuse to pay them any form of compensation. The motion gives the committee a deadline of March 31, 2019 to complete its work.” […]
SOUTH Africa is gearing up to carry out a controversial land redistribution after plans to change the country’s constitution were approved.
By Rachel O’Donoghue | 17 November 2018
DAILY STAR — After months of talks, the country is set to go ahead with the proposals that will see farms seized without compensation – something critics have said will be devastating.
The country’s president, Cyril Ramaphosa, has been attempting to amend South Africa’s constitution for months, but has been met with stiff opposition.
But now the controversial seizures will become legal after the changes were approved by a parliamentary review committee. […]

AP — As South Africa’s passionate debate over land redistribution grows, one city outside Johannesburg is preparing what the mayor calls a “test case” for the nation — the seizure of hundreds of acres of land from private owners, without paying for it, to build low-cost housing.
Like other South African cities, Ekurhuleni faces a dire housing crunch, with some 600,000 of its nearly 4 million people living in “informal settlements” and a shortage of land to build homes.
Last month, Ekurhuleni’s city council voted in favor of forging ahead with “expropriation without compensation,” a legal tool that the ruling African National Congress says is necessary to correct the historic injustices of apartheid and distribute land more equitably. […]

SHTF PLAN — Now, this is what unity looks like. South Africa’s Zulu nation has joined forces with white farmers being subjected to racial land seizures in order to prevent the atrocity.
The largest ethnic group in South Africa, Zulu, has spoken out against the racial expropriation of land without compensation in the country. Zulu is ready to cooperate with the country’s white farmers, known as “Afrikaners” or “Boers” to prevent the seizure of their land, reported RT. Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini has said the group will cooperate with South African minority rights group AfriForum because they desire to eat in the future.
“The Zulu nation I’m talking about will not exist if we don’t have food. That’s why I say farmers must come closer so that we discuss what we can do when we talk about agriculture and the availability of enough food in the land. That’s why I’m asking AfriForum of the Boers to come and help us,” Zwelithini said, as quoted by eNews Channel Africa. “Because when government started talking about the appropriation of land, expropriation without compensation, Boers downed tools. There is no food in South Africa,” he added. […]

TYLER DURDEN — South Africa’s white farmers have been desperately trying to sell their lands at record pace ahead of planned government land seizures, according to a local farmer’s union. However, there are no buyers.
As Ryan Martinez writes for PlanertFreeWill.com, tensions among the country’s white farming community have been rising since the election of Cyril Ramaphosa who assumed office earlier this year and committed his African National Congress (ANC) to land expropriation.
ANC chairman Gwede Mantashe sparked panic last week when he said:
“You shouldn’t own more than 25,000 acres of land. Therefore, if you own more it should be taken without compensation.”
“People who are privileged never give away privilege as a matter of a gift,” he continued. “And that is why we say, to give you the tools, revisit the constitution so that you have a legal tool to do it.”
Mantashe comments were condemned by both white and black farmers, with unions predicting such a move would lead to job losses and a situation in which South Africa may no longer be able to feed itself. […]
There is a story in Russian-language media that looks very promising to hard-pressed Boers in South Africa. If it materializes, then Russia deserves a lot of credit for both a humanitarian step and as a smart national investment. Russian reproduction rates are low, so this demographic infusion makes great sense.
The story comes from this source and this is the translation:
The descendants of the Dutch colonialists of Africa – the Boers – can migrate to the North Caucasus as refugees in the near future. Representatives of this people in the near future plan to visit Stavropol and find out how you can move to the region.
In the beginning of July, the delegation of the Boers headed by Dr. Jan Andrian Slebus is scheduled to visit in the North Caucasus, the Komsomolskaya Pravda was told by the press service of the Ombudsman’s Office in the Stavropol Territory. Guests from South Africa want to talk with the Cossacks, with the local population, Stavropol politicians and religious figures.
If the regional authorities approve and support the Stavropol Region, more than 15,000 Boers may be resettled from South Africa for farming, which is not acceptable for modern living conditions in their homeland. It is also planned that in the case of the success of the first batch of settlers, other Boers may settle in the Crimea , the Krasnodar Territory and the North Caucasus republics.
Since 2007, the Union of Slavic Communities of Stavropol — which emerged from a split within Russian National Unity — has been active in coordinating Russian-nationalist initiatives, supporting the actions of militant Cossacks and opposing ethnic Caucasian migration into the Krai.
Increasingly, Russians are questioning whether they want the North Caucasus republics to remain as part of the Federation. According to a 2011 poll, a fifth of the Russian population supports separating the North Caucasus republics from Russia and almost half of Russians believe life would improve in the country if the North Caucasus republics were to become independent. The ethnic Russian population is less than 4 percent in Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia.
Stavropol Krai is increasingly seen by some in the country as the last bastion of Russia in North Caucasus. It is 81% ethnic Russian, and the assumption made is that Afrikanners/Boers as migrants will appreciate the gesture from Russia and be loyal citizens. That is precisely how immigration policy should work — and it’s a lesson the U.S. and Europe should adopt. Stavropol Frai has a population of 2,786,281.
Australia has had an excellent experience with white South African immigrants and is pushing for more. Turnbull Attorney General Christian Porter pledged in April to help at-risk farmers applying for visas, telling the Australian newspaper, “The more South Africans in our local community the better.”
Porter’s own Perth electorate of Pearce had more than 5,000 South African-born residents at the last census, which recorded 2,656 Afrikaan speakers living in the seat. Now he wants to welcome more.
“More than any other place in Australia, South Africans have made their home in the north coast of WA, in my electorate. They are hardworking and make a huge contribution to our local community,” Porter said.
With Cyril Ramaphosa in control in the Republic of South Africa (RSA), time may be running short. There has been an increase of late in murders and attacks on white farmers in RSA. As is typical of any hidden ethnic cleansing, the data is convoluted and difficult to ascertain. To put this in proper perspective, it appears that attacks run under a thousand a year and murders under a hundred. However, the threat of land seizure without compensation has been made by government officials, including the president.
With abuses and basic rights violations against whites increasing in South Africa, the concept of “right of return” has been put forth. The alternative term is “right of abode.”
Hat tip to Russia and Australia for generating a strong policy response. Where is Europe, especially countries like the Netherlands, Germany and England — the original places of origin for the Boers.

THE NEW OBSERVER — South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has “assured ANC volunteers” that his ruling African National Congress (ANC) is going to seize white land without any compensation, confirming an earlier commitment he made in that country’s parliament—even though it has now been admitted that 90 percent of all black-seized farms have failed and lie fallow.
Speaking in the town of Tembisa, east of Johannesburg on Friday, Ramaphosa told an enthusiastic crowd of blacks that that “We are going to take land and when we take land we are going to take it without compensation.”
“We are going to do it in the interest of our people because our people want land for housing, they want land so that they can live, they want land so that they can use it as an economic resource.” […]

BREITBART — Australia is laying the legislative groundwork necessary to welcome persecuted South African farmers who face a targeted campaign of violence at home, the country’s top legal officer said.
Attorney-General Christian Porter pledged Wednesday to help at-risk farmers applying for visas, telling the Australian newspaper “the more South Africans in our local community the better.”
Mr Porter’s own Perth electorate of Pearce had more than 5000 South African-born residents at the last census, which recorded 2656 Afrikaans speakers living in the seat. Now he wants to welcome more.
“More than any other place in Australia, South Africans have made their home in the north coast of WA, in my electorate. They are hardworking and make a huge contribution to our local community,” Mr. Porter said.
He said over the past five years his office had helped a steady stream of South Africans with immigration issues. […]
