Farmers in South Africa have suffered from attacks over many years. The majority of the victims have been white farmers, with a death toll of up to 3,000 being widely reported.
White farmers believe that the attacks are racist crimes aimed at forcing them off their land. They point to the case of the president of the African National Congress Youth League Julius Malema who sang the lyrics "shoot the boer" in March 2010, at a rally on a university campus. "Boer" is the Afrikaans word for "farmer", but is also used more generally as a term for Afrikaners.
Genocide Watch placed South Africa at level 6, Preparation, On September 15, 2011, saying "we have evidence of organized incitement to violence against white people". Genocide Watch stated that by 2001 "2.2 percent of ethno-European farmers had already been murdered and more than... 12 percent of these farmers had been attacked on their farms".As of December 2011 approximately 3,158 - 3,811 ethnically-European farmers have been murdered in these attacks.
It is small wonder that the number of white farmers has halved and the proportion of land owned by Whites had fallen from 50% to 33%.
When farmers had reported attempted attacks, the police have often refused to take any action.Gideon Meiring, chairperson of the TAU's safety and security committee, criticised the South African Police Service for failing to prevent farm attacks, stating that the police "are not part of the solution but part of the bloody problem"
Mr Van de Graaf has laid charges of genocide against the South African government at the International Criminal Court in the Hague. You can view Nick's speeches in Brussels with Henk Van de Graaf below:
