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:
- White people in South Africa are a minority in their country making up only 8% of the total population
- White South Africans looking for work face a massive struggle to get work due to the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) laws which dictate a company can only have 8% of their total workforce comprise of white people
- There are around 450 displacement camps all across South Africa
- Reports indicate some 400,000 people live in the camps nationwide
- A good portion of the white people in the camps are working class Afrikaans speaking people
- These people get no help from the South African government
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.

As some of you may remember Canadian right-wing independent journalist and activist Lauren Southern was on the 12th of March 2018 was refused entry to the U.K. at the French city of Calais. She was detained for several hours and then sent on her way. She was permanently barred for ever entering the U.K again. The reason from the UK Home office for her refusal of entry was her entry was not conducive to the “public good”
This is only one of many instances where freedom of the press has been shut down, here are a few recent examples. Britany Pettibone & Martin Sellner were denied entry to the UK on March 9th 2018 and banned from the country. Faith Goldy was very recently attacked by ANTIFA and the mainstream media did not do anything about it. Finally as recently as last Friday the 25th of May 2018 Tommy Robinson was arrested and jailed for 13 months for doing nothing illegal.
Now imagine my happiness when I find out Lauren Southern is coming to Australia with Stefan Molyneux in july. The announcement can be found here https://axiomatic.events/
This makes extremely happy because of all the excellent work Lauren has done in South Africa with her Farmlands documentary about the White Farm Murders. A Subject matter which is very close to my heart.
However my happiness and excitement soon turned to anger as I found out there is an active campaign here in Australia to have Lauren banned from coming into the country for her tour.
Only a few days ago Cosmopolitan Magazine a publication which claims to “empower young women” ran this headline about Lauren.
Further to this Asher Wolf on twitter is outright calling for Lauren to be banned from entering Australia. Clearly this person does not believe in free speech and freedom of the media which are basic principals Australia has in it’s society.
Australia is not the UK this cannot be allowed to happen here. I encourage all of my fellow Australians who believe in freedom of the press and free speech to speak up about this issue and support Lauren and Stefan by going to their events. We have to stand up and protect our society and our values now or we will lose them forever.
