SA Treatment of Whites is Human Rights Violation

16 August, 2011

The ANC in government is showing its real colours. They are in fact historically and currently gross human rights violators that should be brought to book rather sooner than later.

The fact that South-Africa is a signatory to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights apparently does not deter the ANC from pursuing policies that are clearly in conflict with the Declaration.

Article 7 of the Declaration inter alia states thatAll are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.”

However, thousands of white males and their families are doomed to be needy for the rest of their lives because they are unlawfully and deliberately barred by racist and discriminating labour legislation from re-entering and competing on an equal foot in the labour market whilst Article 23 (1) of the Declaration clearly states that(1) Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.”
Furthermore, according to COSATU “all the parties represented at the last ANC national executive committee meeting had supported nationalisation” whilst Article 17 (2) states that “No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property.”

With its official 2007 Polokwane Strategy and Tactics the ANC has criminalised the history and existence of the white minority in South-Africa. The latter are publicly and officially depicted by the ANC as thieves that stole the land from its alleged rightful owners. This constitutes an aggressive and deliberate attack on the honour and dignity of millions of innocent men, women and children that are upright and law-abiding citizens.

Moreover, Article 12 of the Declaration states that “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.”

The ANC has no right to keep on abusing fellow South-Africans and their children that do not enjoy special immunities or banal rights in these unlawful and inhumane manners.

Whereto is all this revenge politics of the governing tripartite alliance leading the country and when will it end?

The natural outcomes of the NDR are clearly, amongst others, further unlawful ethnic cleansing in the labour market, further mass displacement of minorities of which 1 million already emigrated, expropriation without due compensation of white owned property whilst under the prevailing hate filled atmosphere and low levels of social cohesion, the possibility of mass murder and genocide can unfortunately not be ruled out.

The leadership of the ANC should be very concerned. The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court lists the most serious crimes of concern to the international community.

The ANC leadership will most certainly one day in the not too distant future be held responsible by the very same international community that assisted them to overcome minority rule for subsequently leading the post-apartheid South-Africa in the wrong direction – the ANC will not be able to keep on fooling everybody all the time with their superficial lip service to reconciliation and nation building.
