In the latest memorandum, marchers called for an end to farm murders, land theft, the oppression of white people and other minority groups and inciters of hate speech and violence.

 

 

People protesting crimes committed against farmers and “the oppression of whites and minority groups” took to the streets of Pretoria on Monday.

The Black Monday Movement South Africa (BMMSA) marched to the American and Australian embassies to hand over a memorandum of demands.

 

It was the second such memorandum.

 

The movement handed in its first memorandum last October, but said it has received no response from the embassies.

 

Monday’s march began at Loftus Versfeld.

 

In the latest memorandum, marchers called for an end to farm murders, land theft, the oppression of white people and other minority groups and inciters of hate speech and violence.

 

“We are the voice calling all farmers and minority groups, whose land is about to be stolen by the government, to rise in unity and defend our freedom and land,” said BMMSA national chairperson Valerie Byliefeldt.

 

Byliefeldt said BMMSA would not tolerate the abuse of farmers and white people by the political party EFF and the organisation Black Land First (BLF) who they say often incite hate speech.

 

She said it was not fair for people to steal land they had not earned. Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) was a system that was also not fair to white people.

 

Byliefeldt said white people used to own the Transvaal and Free State, which were taken from them during the Anglo Boer war (against Britain)

 

“We also want our land back.”

 

“We are sons and daughters of the Afrikaner and Boer folk of South Africa who fought for our freedom.”

 

Edward Richardson, deputy chairman of BMMSA, said the march was not about race as they were a voice for black farmers being murdered as well.

 

“White farmers and black farmers are being targeted and we feel police are not doing enough,” he said

 

Richardson said he felt as though people and parties such as Julius Malema’s EFF and BLF were not being prosecuted for hate speech and incitements of “war”.

 

“Vicky Momberg goes to prison for hate speech; however, Julius Malema says what he likes, when he likes and BLF incite war with white people,” he said.

 

Richardson said BMMSA was not fighting, but wanted to end such behavior.

 

“Us as South Africans need to resolve our matters, but the way Julius Malema and BLF are behaving is unacceptable.”

 

He said their role was to focus on ending violent incitement, ongoing corruption, crime, murders and genocide of minority groups in South Africa.

 

Marchers protested “enough is enough”, ordering a stop to all killings.

 

Many members have already started action and opened cases against Malema and others, who they say, commit incitement to violence, murder and racial hatred.

 

The movement also targeted Cyril Ramaphosa for his international statements, denying that farm murders take place.

 

Black Monday Movement marches took place in various cities and towns.

 

Byliefeldt said crowd control was not the goal of Black Monday, but the goal was to place global focus on the horrific hateful murders specifically aimed at exterminating Afrikaners.
