White people in South Africa continue to face many struggles everyday of their lives. Anyone who follows my work on twitter know that I am strong advocate of many of the issues facing them however I wish to take some time now to write about the white displacement (or squatter) camps.
Here are some facts on this issue:
These camps are made from makeshift dwellings often from disused building materials, they have no electricity and food and water supplies are dangerously low. The camps are often built on the outskirts of major population centres where rubbish dumps were previously located and have been filled over.
Independent journalist Lauren Southern posted a video on her YouTube channel on these camps as part of her Farmlands documentary. To find out more about her work please visit https://laurensouthern.net/farmlands/
As Lauren states in her video these people are not immigrants to South Africa, they have not come into South Africa illegally. They are South African citizens who have been abandoned by their own government…why because of their skin color.
Where is the international outcry about this issue, where are the aid agencies coming to the rescue of the poor and majorly disadvantage white South African population who are an oppressed minority in their own country? Something needs to be done and it needs to happen very soon.
