In this post we will talk about justice in the creation of an independent state for the boer people and because this is a fair decision.
First os all, we will start with a declaration of Woodrow Wilson, former presidente of United States
“National aspirations must be respected; people may now be dominated and governed only by their own consent. Self determination is not a mere phrase; it is an imperative principle of action.”(1918)
In 1918, after the First World War, this was the thought that was appearing. All nations and peoples have right to choose their representatives and that was na imperative.
After the Second world war, this thought appeared again with great emphasis to the colonized countries. The United Nations has made this idea, a principle of international law expressed in Resolution 1514. ”Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples”
In short, all nations and peoples (not only those who are colonized) have the right to have their own state.
This is, in our opinion, the basis for the creation of volkstaat, following international law, boer-Afrikaners should have their own space where they can develop their culture, language, which are not discriminated by their race or language. As happened in the states of Transvaal and Orange Vry Staat.
Volkstaat will be also a solution for crime on afrikaners, since 1994, thousands os afrikaners were murdered and and many others were attacked and saw their farms (their source of income) destroyed.
Currently, Afrikaners teem also been hurt by policies of impoverishment as affirmative action, which confiscate farms and promote unemployment among Afrikaners. 20% of afrikaners are unemployed.
Afrikaner culture itself is being absorbed and forgotten in the detriment of other cultures. Afrikaans is no longer taught in most schools, historic days and important figures of history are forgotten Afrikaner, Afrikaner traditions are despised… We do not advocate that the Zulu or Xhosa people should learn Afrikaans, the Afrikaner history and the afrikaner culture, NO! But Afrikaners have the right to learn about their culture.
Therefore it is necessary to have an independente or autonomous to teach the Afrikaner traditions and cultures.
In January 2010, Die Beeld, an Afrikaans newspaper, held a survey about volkstaat with 11019respondents, 56% (6178) said that they would move to a Volkstaat if one were created, a further 17% (1908) would consider it while only 27% (2933) would not consider it as a viable option.Here we observe that most Afrikaners are in favor of creating an independent state and would consider moving there.
It is necessary to have a Boer-Afrikaner state
–> For Afrikaners learn afrikaans before english
–> For Afrikaners live in a peaceful place instead of where is the second largest number of assaults with firearms per capita
–>For Afrikaners learn all about its history and historical figures
–> For Afrikaners live in a place where they are benefited and not harmed due to affirmative action
–> For Afrikaners possess their land where they can cultivate and work.
–>For Afrikaners can assert their identity and develop their culture without being victims of racism or other discrimination.
