Klacht door Zuid-Afrikaanse boeren bij Strafhof Den Haag tegen ANC-regering wegens genocide op blanke boeren
Internationale conferentie in Europees parlement over 'plaasmoorde' op boeren in Zuid-Afrika
Feb 2 2012 - Brussels
EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT. BRUSSELS. South African farmers represented in the Transvaal Agricultural Union have lodged a formal genocide-complaint against the ANC-government for crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, announced TAU deputy-chairman Henk van de Graaf today..
Left: Van der Graaf was interviewed by European Parliament TV and various Belgian TV-stations about his lodging formal genocide complaint against ANC-regime
“The farm murders are not ordinary crimes but fit into the context in which the ANC-regime wants to rid itself of especially its Afrikaner- and other white farmers purely for political reasons. This is in other words, a genocide and a crime against humanity.’
This was the shocking message by the South African Henk van de Graaf, the deputy-chairman of the Transvaal Agricultural Union. He was addressing the European parliament’s international conference, attended by more than 50 European parliamentarians and other high-level functionaries from Great-Britain, France, Italy, Flanders and Austria.
“The farm-murders are encouraged in a deliberate atmosphere of violence created by the ANC-regime against its (white) farmers. The ANC is for instance constantly telling unproven stories about farm-workers being poorly treated – even though the evidence is always sorely lacking for their claims.
Farmers also are unjustly and without any kind of proof, arrested and accused of crimes: one statement by (suspended) ANC youth leader Julius Malema was: ‘Shoot the Boers, they are all rapists’. The ANC is also constantly claiming that ‘the whites own 80% of all the land – when in fact the private-farmland ownership only was 33% ten years ago in 2001 – and has been rapidly dropping ever since. Meanwhile the extent of the farm murders indicates that this is a genocide: with the Transvaal Agricultural Union verifying 1,554 murders, this statistic is very understated, said Mr Van de Graaf. Thus far in January 2012, a total of 17 Afrikaner people were murdered – of whom at least six on farms.
“The Afrikaners are calling on the world to help stop the genocide, the farm murders, in South Africa. To this end the Transvaal Agricultural Union has lodged a formal genocide complaint at the International Criminal Court,’ he concluded.
Euro-MP Philip Claeys, who hosted the conference, said ‘we will do our utmost to continue to place this problem on our agenda over the next months,’ said at the conference’s conclusion.

Below: Latest example of ANC-genocidal hatespeech incitements as noted in Mr Henk van de Graaf’s address to the European Parliamentary conference on the SA farm murders:
Zuid-Afrikaanse boeren dienen klacht in tegen ANC-regering wegens misdaden
tegen de mensheid bij Internationaal Strafhof Den Haag
'Het aantal slachtoffers van de gruwelijke ‘plaasmoorde’ in Zuid-Afrika, de moorden uitgevoerd op blanken die leven op afgelegen boerderijen, bedraagt al minstens 1554 en wellicht meer. Die 'plaasmoorde' zijn geen gewone misdaden, maar passen in een context waarbij de ANC-regering om politieke redenen af wil van de vooral blanke boeren; dit is dus een genocide en een misdaad tegen de mensheid.' Dat was de schokkende boodschap van Zuid-Afrikaan Henk van de Graaf, ondervoorzitter van de Transvaalse landbouwunie, gisteren in het Europees parlement op een internationale conferentie.
Meer dan 50 personen woonden de internationale conferentie bij die georganiseerd werd door Europees parlementslid Philip Claeys (Vlaams Belang). De conferentie werd bijgewoond door Europese parlementsleden uit Groot-Brittannië, Frankrijk, Italië, Vlaanderen en Oostenrijk. De 'plaasmoorde' worden in de hand gewerkt door de sfeer tegen de boeren die door het ANC geschapen wordt. Er worden verhalen verteld over ‘werkvolk dat door de boeren slecht behandeld worden’ – al blijken bewijzen steeds te ontbreken. Boeren worden ook zonder bewijs beschuldigd van misdaden: ‘shoot the Boers, they are rapists’ is een uitspraak van ANC-jongerenleider Malema, die daarvoor wel veroordeeld werd – maar in beroep ging, mét de steun van het ANC.
Er wordt ook beweerd dat ‘de blanken 80% van het land bezitten’ – terwijl blijkt dat dit in 2001 nog maar 33% was, en sindsdien is blijven afnemen. De omvang van de plaasmoorde wijst intussen op een genocide. 1554 plaasmoorde kan men exact documenteren, maar wellicht is dat cijfer onderschat; Dit jaar alleen al zijn er 17 doden gevallen onder Afrikaners (in net een maand tijd), waarvan 6 door plaasmoorde.
De Afrikaners doen een oproep aan de wereld om de plaasmoorden, de genocide en het anti-blanke racisme te doen stoppen. Ze hebben daarvoor intussen klacht ingediend bij het Internationale Strafhof in Den Haag wegens misdaden tegen de mensheid. ‘Wij zullen ons uiterste best doen om dit probleem de volgende maanden en jaren blijvend op de agenda te plaatsen’, zo besloot Europees parlementslid Philip Claeys de conferentie.

We use the SAPS’ modus-operandi definition of ‘attacks on rural farms and smallholdings’ even though the SA police no longer list attacks against rural residents in a seperate crime-category.

Jan 29 2012: Afrikaner farmer Hendrik Cilliers, 77, tied to a tree, tortured, shot dead execution style: farm Erfdeel, 15km outside Stella, NorthWest - as reported by Nico Strydom -
77-year-old Afrikaner farmer Hendrik Cilliers 's badly bruised body was found tied to a tree on Sunday 18:30 about 30m from his homestead on his farm Erfdeel about 15km outside Stella, North West. SAPS spokesman brig. Thulani Ngubane said Mr Cilliers' hands and feet were bound up tightly around the tree-trunk. His mouth was covered up with a t-shirt. Mr Cilliers was first brutally beaten because his body is covered in bruises. He then was shot dead execution-style with a headshot. .Mr Ngubane said that the old Afrikaner farmer lived alone on his farm. He claimed 'some household goods' were stolen but did not provide further details and later news reports do not indicate that robbery had been a motive: . link and link and link
Farmer and Nutrition expert Francois du Toit of Alzu Feeds murdered on his farm Kwalata neer Roossenekal in Mpumalanga - January 23 2012.
Transvaal Agricultural Union VP Henk vd Graaf said Mr Francois Du Toit, who worked as a nutrition expert at the Alzu Feeds company, was gunned down and killed as he opened his back door to investigate why his dogs were barking. A colleague who does not want to be identified told the ‘Landbou’ publication that there were probably three black males involved in the attack. After they murdered the Afrikaner man, they tied up his wife and children and fled with the couple’s cellphones – using their vehicles merely to escape in: the vehicles were found back on the farm after the murder. Vd Graaf said the TLU is worried about the large number of farm-attacks thus far this year. “If this trend continues this will be a bloody year for our farmers,’ he said. 23 Jan 2012

Xhoi-San Afrikaans-speaking farm woman Let Hanekam gruesomely mutilated, stabbed 52x, throat cut, hair torched :
this was listed as a farm-murder because it had no links to any 'family-feuds' or 'relationship arguments'. The woman was attacked by an apparently mentally-disturbed man who had attacked and killed before - and who has not yet been arrested. farm Gunsfontein, Sutherland, North Cape 2012-01-20 http://www.farmitracker.com/reports/view/2256

Unnamed black male farm-attacker killed, Alkmaar farm: Farmer Corrie Potgieter, 70, shoots dead one of three black farm-attackers who ambushed him at his Alkmaar, Nelspruit farm: dead man was found to be armed with a realistic-looking BB-pistol: http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Man-kills-robber-armed-with-BB-gun-20120127
Smallholder Michael Stenger, 30 shot dead at Nelspruit smallholding: used as human shield by armed black-male gang – nothing robbed:
2012-01-21 Nelspruit employee Michael Stenger was at work at the company Sound Systems when four armed black males arrived at 09:30 in a luxury BMW on Saturday Jan 21 2012 at the smallholding where the business is located. In the resulting firefight between his employer Charles Loram and the armed gang, Mr Stenger was killed: he was being used as a human shield by the gang. Forensic tests will have to determine who fired the fatal shot. Loram saw from his bedroom window that Mr Stenger had a black bag pulled over his head and when he stormed into his business with his .38, two gunmen fired shots at Loram. Mr Stenger was hit and the gang dragged Mr Stenger into an adjacent office, and held the injured man in front of them while exchanging fire with the owner.When Mr Loram ran out of ammo and rushed to his home to fetch his 9mm, the gang tried to get their BMW through the electric gates - but couldn't.They then fled on foot. Mr Loram said he believes he injured two of them. When he returned to his office he found Mr Stenger - shot through the heart. Beeld newspaper surmises that Mr Loram may have shot dead Mr Stenger accidentially during the firefight - although offering no proof of this: it has to be established with forensic testing first. The police meanwhile have launched a 'murder' investigation and confiscated Mr Loram's revolver and at least eight 9mm spent cartridges.An injured black suspect was arrested at Nelspruit police station when he lodged a formal charge claiming his red BMW had been 'hijacked'. After checking the Sound Systems security cameras it was determined that the man had been amongst the armed robbers.Police arrested a black woman at a taxistand and questioned her about lending the red BMW to a man who claimed he wanted to attend a funeral with it. SAPS spokesman lt-col Leonard Hlathi said they released her. Mr Loram - who is a life-style trainer and dietician - was badly traumatised and unable to make a statement to the police.Mr Stenger was engaged to Ms René Roestorf and their wedding was planned for September.He leaves his mom Mrs Hannie Klokie and sisters Monika Stenger en Manuela Bergendahl.

One Dutch MP, Martin Bosma, has decided to start fighting for Afrikaans-language rights in South Africa: on the premise that if you fight for the survival of the language, you also fight for the survival of the people who speak it.
