Posted on 06/05/2006 2:01:08 PM PDT by NewsGuy2005
History is underway in South Africa once again, as the Boere, an indigenous white ethnic nation in own right, declare their sovereignty and push for a separate homeland within the country that saw blacks legally disband the Apartheid system some 10 years ago.
Dr. Lets Pretorius, Spokesman for the Boer nation (Boerevolk), and Mr. Riaan Smith, an attorney, met with met with Adv. Cetswayo and Mr. LH Mapholaba from the office of the Speaker of the South African Parliament on May 25th to discuss The Majuba Declaration, the Boervolk's formal demand for an independent homeland. The Cape Town meeting was organized by The Boerevolk Freedom Foundation, which is driving the push for self-determination.
The following statements were put forward during the meeting:
1. The Boerevolk is a definite entity and must be recognized as such.
2. There is a distinct difference between a Boer and an Afrikaner.
3. The Majuba Declaration is legally sound, based on section 235 of the Constitution of South Africa.
Mr. Smith and Dr. Pretorius then demanded that:
1. The Boerevolk Freedom Foundation, and the Boerevolk be institutionally recognized. The Foundation will be the formal mouthpiece of the Boerevolk until the election of representatives or deputies of the Boerevolk has been held.
2. A forum be created to discuss related matters and demands of the Boerevolk.
It was agreed that this forum will be held by the end of June, and will consist of delegations from both Parliament and the Boerevolk. The Parliamentary delegation will include the Chairman of the Constitutional Committee; the Minister of Agriculture of Land and Environmental Affairs, to address the Zimbabwe-like land grab currently taking place in South Africa; the Minister of Justice, to address the injustices against the Boerevolk taking place in South Africa's legal system; Minister of Safety and Security, to address the murders of farmers, and Black-on-Boere crime taking place.
The Chairman of Human Rights of Minorities at the United Nations, Mr.Stauffenhagen, has also received the Majuba Declaration.
For the first time in more than 100 years, the Boerevolk are actually being represented in South Africa. After 1902, they lost their freedom and were incorporated into the Afrikaner group and later into "White" South Africa under the Apartheid system.

At least the British can sit this one out....
Der Boer Freistaat!
What does the word Boere mean by itself?
Catchy name, Cetswayo. He was the Zulu chief that butchered 800-odd British troops at the Battle of Isandlwana in 1879.
I believe it is dutch for farm.
On an interesting note a Boer prophet (who was apparently right about a number of other predictions) from the Anglo-Boer War era named Siener Nicolaas van Rensburg predicts that a significant number of White people will be killed a week after a famous Black leader dies (likely Mandela) but that the Boers will once again regain their independence due in part to the aid of the Germans. Therefore while it looks like about 500 000 - Rensburg's number- White people are heading towards an open genocide: it looks like (according to the prediction) that the whole world will not just sit by & will even help the Boers to regain control -which they have not had since 1900) of at least part of the region.
