Afrikaner group to hold talks for own state

By Sapa | 2014-07-23 13:03:49.0 | COMMENTS [ 230 ]

Members of an Afrikaner group who call themselves the Boer-Afrikaner Volksraad view forthcoming talks with the government as a step closer to their "right for self-determination for our own people in a peaceful way".

"The Boer Afrikaner people are distinctive people and we have been fighting for the past two centuries to gain our independence," Andries Breytenbach, chairman of the Boer-Afrikaner Volksraad, told reporters in Pretoria on Wednesday.

"We see the willingness of government to hold talks with us in a positive light."

The discussions that according to Breytenbach will include President Jacob Zuma, or his deputy Cyril Ramaphosa, or both, will be held before the end of August and will consist of the concept of territorial self-determination for what the organisation calls "Boer Afrikaner people".

This follows a recent court application by the Boere-Afrikanervolksraad to have their own state.

"In a letter received on 17 July from the State Attorney, the Volksraad was told that government chose to settle this issue through negotiations rather than litigation," he said.

Breytenbach, who could not give the exact number of members belonging to their organisation, said that a possible poll among Afrikaners who want their own state would form part of the talks with government.

"We want a country of our own where we are allowed to run our own affairs.

We were a self-governing nation before 1994 and then we lost our independence. We are a minority and have no influence in the political course South Africa is taking," he said.

"If we can attain our own territory we can be a stabilising factor for the whole southern Africa region."

Are they for real, they want another Orania, we cannot afford to have more than one Orania, if they are in Pretoria, where do they want their state to be, & which city will fall within their state?

Orania is not a state on its own, it is a few private farms that merged and it is private property, that is all.

Why is everyone against the Afrikaaners having their own state? Then at least you won't have to put up with them anymore, (remember you keep on telling them to go back to their European roots) and maybe one day, when we're all starving because the land 'reform' hasn't worked and there are no productive farmers in South Africa, maybe this new state run by the Afrikaaners will feed us all. Sounds like a good idea to me.

MommaC you wouldn't have to put a lock around it, I can assure you they would have no interest in coming into South Africa. On the contrary in a few years South Africans would be asking them for food since it will be the only functioning agricultural region in Southern Africa

The tail is wagging the dog. Orania, Kommandokorps, Suidlanders, B0er-Afrikaner Volksraad, EFF. I blame Zuma for all these. What does he mean "We were a self-governing nation before 1994"? Does he mean apartheid? SMH

Anyway, let me quote Malcolm X with my own modifications, "You’re going to have a racial explosion, and a racial explosion is more dangerous than an atomic explosion. It’s going to explode because black people [and white people] are dissatisfied; they’re dissatisfied not only with the [government], but they’re dissatisfied with these Negroes who have been sitting around here posing as leaders and spokesmen for black people and actually making the problem worse instead of making the problem better."

Ironically, during the Codessa talks, the ANC was all in favour of a 'volkstad' but the Nats wouldn't allow the idea to even be put on the table. I honestly think a lot of the racial problems we have had would have been avoided if they had just secluded the worst crazies away from the general population
