Concerns about farm attacks in South Africa were among issues presented to the United Nations Human Rights Commission Forum in Geneva, Switzerland
Sunday Times – Freedom Front Plus leader Pieter Mulder said the commission’s theme for the year was “Preventing and addressing violence and atrocities targeted against minorities”.
“It therefore joins up perfectly with the message of the FF Plus about the fate of minorities in South Africa,” he said in a statement.
The Afrikaner minority belongs to the UNPO.org. A global organisation with minority nations which includes the Mapuche Indians, Pygmies, Tibetans and Gypsy’s among many others.
The FF Plus would make four presentations to the UN forum on the topics of farm attacks, land claims, affirmative action and what it called the “dismantling of Afrikaans”.
On farm attacks, the FF Plus asked for help to address and prevent further attacks on farmers and farm workers, which the minority political party claimed amounted to “genocide”.
It urged the forum to “recommend that the UN general secretary initiates a full investigation to pressurise the SA government to immediately implement effective measures to put an end to these atrocities”.
Steve Hofmeyr is an Afrikaner activist, ambassador, who speaks up for Afrikaners, who as a group, are murdered and targeted by racism and hate crimes and total ignorance from the main stream media, oblivious on how serious it is. Minority Rights are not respected by the black nationalist Communist government, unlike true democratic countries where minority rights are respected.
The FF Plus also told the forum that the re-opening of land claims in South Africa threatened food security, economic growth, and the prosperity to the entire South African nation.
“The ideological political propaganda which seeks to bolster emotional support relies on the misleading myth that based on Histo-Geo-Political facts the white farmers stole the land from black people which is vehemently rejected with the contempt it deserves.”
On affirmative action, “our request is that this forum… takes serious note of the attempts by the present South African government to absolutely exclude Afrikaners in South Africa from freely participating in economic activities in the country since 1994”.
They submit that Afrikaners are a strategic minority contributing to job creation, economic growth and prosperity for the good of the whole of South Africa.
The FF Plus also submitted a presentation in which it claimed that the South African government was trying to “dilute and eventually eradicate Afrikaans-language mother-tongue education for Afrikaans speakers”.

What is Genocide?
Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.
- (a) Killing members of the group;
- (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
- (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
- (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
- (e) Forcibly transferring a group to another group.
8 Stages of Genocide
|People are divided into “us and them”.||“The main preventive measure at this early stage is to develop universalistic institutions that transcend… divisions.”|
|“When combined with hatred, symbols may be forced upon unwilling members of pariah groups…”||“To combat symbolization, hate symbols can be legally forbidden as can hate speech“.|
|“One group denies the humanity of the other group. Members of it are equated with animals, vermin, insects, or diseases.”||“Local and international leaders should condemn the use of hate speech and make it culturally unacceptable. Leaders who incite genocide should be banned from international travel and have their foreign finances frozen.”|
|“Genocide is always organized… Special army units or militias are often trained and armed…”||“The U.N. should impose arms embargoes on governments and citizens of countries involved in genocidal massacres, and create commissions to investigate violations”|
|“Hate groups broadcast polarizing propaganda…”||“Prevention may mean security protection for moderate leaders or assistance to human rights groups…Coups d’état by extremists should be opposed by international sanctions.”|
|“Victims are identified and separated out because of their ethnic or religious identity…”||“At this stage, a Genocide Emergency must be declared. …”|
|“It is ‘extermination’ to the killers because they do not believe their victims to be fully human”.||“At this stage, only rapid and overwhelming armed intervention can stop genocide. Real safe areas or refugee escape corridors should be established with heavily armed international protection.”|
|“The perpetrators… deny that they committed any crimes…”||“The response to denial is punishment by an international tribunal or national courts”|

We request that this Forum on minority issues seriously take note of worrisome increase in the violent murder of farmers and farm workers in South Africa since 1994.
“We request your help with the prevention and treating of this violence and crimes which is directed at a strategic minority group in the community who is not only responsible for food security of the country, but contributes considerably to job creation, economic growth and the welfare of everyone in South Africa.”
The presentation mentions that, where comparative figures for murders internationally show that 7 in every 100 000 people are murdered, a frightening 132,8 farmers in every 100 000 people are murdered annually. Also that 1 651 farmers have been murdered between 1990 and 2013.
“It should be remembered that the theme for this year was: ‘Preventing and addressing violence and atrocities targeted against minorities’ and against this backdrop we went to present our case. The South African diplomat attacked the UN because it had given members of a minority the opportunity to address the Forum.
“The South African government’s irritated reaction means our facts cannot be refuted and that it was correct and necessary to be here and to introduce it to the international community. That is why the FF Plus will continue to place these facts on the table, in South Africa and internationally, exactly like the ANC had done during their struggle against apartheid.
“From discussions with people from other countries it is also clear that the ANC government no longer enjoys the protective aura of a Nelson Mandela and it is becoming clear that scepticism towards South Africa is increasing. People are for example asking how safe it is in South-Africa,” Dr. Mulder says.
Dr. Mulder will also be attending the executive management (Presidency management) meeting of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples’ Organization (UNPO) in Geneva on the 27th and 28th November and bring them up to date about developments in South Africa.
He will also be meeting with the executive of UNPO in preparation of UNPO’s general council which is to be held in May 2015 in Brussels to ensure interaction with the European Union parliament.
The media is instrumental, mostly unknowingly, in support genocide, by denying it’s existence, enforcing ignorance by not reporting and educating it’s readers.
