I’m sure by now most of our readers have heard about the recent decision by South Africa’s government decision to amend the country’s constitution in order to allow for the seizing of white-owned property without compensation.
This of course means that if whites were to defend their property, the South African government would use all the necessary police (or even military) force to remove whites from the land. By implication we, the Boer people of South Africa, facing genocide, are now staring extinction right in the face.
I’ve been contacted by many friends abroad expressing their willingness to help the Boer people. Of course, there are many ways you could be of help – donating to organizations like the Suidlanders, for example, is one way.
However, today I want to plea with my friends abroad who can, to help in another way – the only way I believe Boer families will be spared the coming massacre: by offering employment opportunities.
If you are an employer living in a majority white, preferably Christian country or area and you have a vacancy, prayerfully consider offering the opportunity to a Boer. Of course this means that you might have to go through a bit of a hassle with the immigration process that you would not have otherwise, but you would be saving kin from a major catastrophe. If you are comfortable doing so, also consider talking to your employer about the possibility of hiring a Boer.
The downside of this option is that only a limited number of Boers can be helped this way, and it certainly isn’t everyone’s calling to help Boers escape South Africa, but I believe this to be the most productive way at this late stage.
If you are interested in helping, you can contact me directly at this e-mail address: [email protected] (also listed below in my short biography). Let me know what kind of opportunity you have in mind and I’ll see if I can find a fellow Boer interested in the position. Rest assured that we are still, for the most part, a hard-working people.
My ideal scenario has always been a network of employers in the same vicinity employing Boers so families can come over together and maintain some of their cultural identity, but I realize this is a long shot and at this stage priority number one is saving as many people as we can.
