Many of us are aware of the plight and desperate situation facing the white South African farmers. This has been a worsening for some time now for those who may not be fully aware of what has been going on you can see Ayla’s interview here.
Alternative media sources have been covering the situation however despite the ongoing and worsening crisis in South Africa there has been very little global mainstream media coverage of this story.
However despite the lack of mainstream media coverage this story has come to attention of government officials who are now looking at ways to help the white South African farmers
On Wednesday evening while catching up with some news online I saw an article which filled my heart with hope for the white South African farmers. The Australian immigration and Home Affairs minister The Honourable Peter Dutton MP had come out and said that his department were looking at ways to help the white South African Farmers with the possibility of fast tracking visas for them to become refugees in Australia.
Mr Dutton said “White farmers facing violence in South Africa deserve special attention from Australia”
Mr Dutton’s remarks sparked a response from the South African government as they demanded he retracted his statement and apologise saying that “it’s citizens are in no danger” however I will let you make up your own mind if these white farmers are in “no danger” as their government suggests as I present the following evidence to you.
There are almost constant reports of violence and killings against white farmers. With violence against these people on the rise all the time.
A record 400 farmers were attacked in 2017, with between 1 & 2 murdered every week. Is there still no danger?
One story I heard about involved a white family who were attacked and robbed. The husband was shot and killed right in front of his family including his 3 children. Five days after his funeral his new son was born. His boy will grow up not knowing his dad, facing an uncertain future and his family having been shattered forever. However the South African government says there is “no danger”
Even the South African government themselves are fuelling and making the situation worse. Earlier this month the South African government themselves passed by overwhelming majority (241 votes for and 83 votes against) an amendment to section 25 of the constitution which allows expropriation of the land of white farmers with any form of compensation given to them.
So by their own actions the South African government have putting these white farmers into poverty, destitution and a greater level of danger than they have ever faced before.
However there is hope. After making a post on the social media network Gab calling for my fellow Australians to write to Mr Dutton showing our support for his stance on this issue I was contacted by someone from New Zealand who gave me some information.
They informed me that the New Zealand government are also looking at ways to assist, grant refugee status and help resettle the white South African farmers. This news filled my heart with hope that we are actually making some real progress to helping the farmers.
It is my hope that this is only the start and that other countries will join in and look at ways we can help these people who’s lives are being torn apart and they are in constant danger.
We can make a difference and help these people if we all continue to band together and do everything within our power to assist them. Please continue to talk about this issue on your social media platforms and share articles about the violence and persecutions the white farmers in South Africa face.
The Bible says in Proverbs 3:27-28
Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them.
If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.”
These people are literally depending on us for their very survival.
