Boer children and women in the British concentration camps

On May 9, I had an interesting conversation with Theuns Cloete, great Boer patriot and a great Boer history expert, and also Director of Boervolk Radio. Among other things, Theuns pointed out to me that there is much confusion about the 27,000 Boers died in the British concentration camps in southern Africa, during 1900-1902.
It is generally thought that most of these 27,000 dead were women. Perhaps because there are several monuments that recall the Boer women, and when people speak of the dead in concentration camp, ever citing first women then children. But the truth is otherwise.
Of the 27,000 deaths: 24,000 were children (under 16 years); 2,200 were women; 800 were men.
The Boer population, before the Second Anglo-Boer War, was about 180,000 up to 220,000, of which 50,000 were children.
The British concentration camps, a weapon of international capitalism moved to the conquest of the Boer Republics, exterminated about 50% of the Boer child population. The nature of things was reversed, and mothers and fathers saw their children die. Indeed, the best way to delete a volk is to make dying his children.

Chapter 4

The Republic of Natalia

In 1837 Retief and his followers migrated to Natal and negotiated with the paramount chief of the Zulus to purchase land from him. Dingane allotted the area between the Tugela and the Umzimvubu rivers to them on the condition that they recover several thousand head of stolen cattle from another black chief by the name of Sekonyela. Retief succeeded in the undertaking and the land [...] was granted to them.

Dingane under incitement by the reverend Robert Owen, stationed at Umgungundlhovu, and political threats by Captain Gardiner, the British Commissioner of Port Natal, violated the agreement by murdering Retief and his party of 65 men and 5 boys during a “celebration in their honour”. This he followed up by sending his Army to murder the Boere wherever they found them. The Boere regrouped under Andries Pretorius and routed the Zulus during the great battle of Blood river on December 16th 1838.

Thereafter, we Boere, although we could have taken all of Dingane's land through the recognised right of conquest, settled only the land had been acquired through the agreement between Retief and Dingane. By 1840 we had founded the Republic of Natalia with Pieter Maritzburg as capital. Exposed coal seams were soon discovered and mined. George Napier, the British Governor of the Cape Colony, got wind of it and in January of 1842 Sir George Napier issued a proclamation in respect of the annexation of Natal. In his reply on behalf of the Faulk's Council J.N. Boshoff, who later become President of the Republic of the Orange Free State, summed up the grievances leading up to the emigration as follows:

“To quote a few examples: who was it that imposed the increasingly evil results of slavery on us? Who was it that assured us of our property rights in that respect? Was it not the same Government that later stripped us of the same and in such a way that we had not the slightest say as to what would have been the best and most suitable procedure? Who was it that promised us full compensation for our slaves? Was it not the same Government that cheated us out of two thirds of the actual value and then exposed us to the avariciousness of profit-hungry dealers that enriched themselves at our cost? Who was it that employed us, at no payment and at our own cost, to protect the borders of the Colony against the hostile, bellicose and rapacious Kafirs? Was it not the same Government that later on denied us any right to compensation by wrongfully asserting that we had brought the Kafirs' vengeance upon ourselves by robbing them? Who deprived us of the best Governor we ever had simply because he, as a man with a conscience, defended the wronged Cape Colonists and, by punishing their destructive enemies, sought their essential safety and protection? Who saddled us with political speculators bound over to impose on us border arrangements that continually exposed us to being robbed and threatened by the Kafirs with impunity, accompanied by excessively high cost to be recouped from the purse of the already ruined farmer? Was it not the Government that opened the country to roving vagabonds leading an unemployed, savage way of life garnering their livelihood form the livestock and other properties of the already over-stressed farmer? Through which course the farmer, stuck without labour, or if he had labour, denuded of all authority, of which the colonists are still complaining, was robbed of all hope, so that he, all his remonstrations and petitions remaining unanswered and ignored, was left with the darkest possible future view.

“All these evils we ascribe to this one cause, namely the lack of representative government that was refused us by the executive authority of the same faulk who consider this privilege one of their holiest civil rights and for which every true Briton would lay down his life.”

By 1845 we Boere gave up hope of reaching a reasonable agreement with the British and so the migration over the Berg [10] into Potgieter's territory – the Transvaal and the [Orange. Ed.] Free State – took place.

“Die Mandela Legende – The Mandela Legend”, by Dr. P.W. MöllerDr. P.W. Möller

The book “Die Mandela Legende – The Mandela Legend”, by dr. P.W. Möller, is a biography of Nelson Mandela, history communist terrorist of the African National Congress (ANC), and first black President of the “new” Empire of the Republic of South Africa (RSA).
Dr. P.W. Moller, in a booklet easy to read, cheap and basic, in two languages (Afrikaans and English), unmasks an icon of international capitalism-communism, and report his true story.

The truth is a powerful weapon. For this reason many those who try to suppress it.
Volkstaat.org invites you to buy this book and spread it.
Those who are interested to buy a copy of “Die Mandela Legende – The Mandela Legend” can contact Volkstaat.org via e-mail. All copies will be ordered directly to Dr. Möller, in southern Africa.

What follows is a brief presentation of the book.


The Real Mandela

In this booklet (which is published in Afrikaans and English) Nelson Mandela, who has been elevated to a world icon, is exposed as the tyrant he really is – all but the amiable, peace loving and benign personality popularly ascribed to him. Not only did his propagation and incitement of violence, over many years, foster a state of anarchy, which is still rampant in South Africa, but he himself was responsible for the death of many innocent people.

During the National Party's negotiations with him, Mandela persistently refused to renounce violence, even though he continuously pretend to be in favour of a peaceful solution for the South African situation. Despite the fact that he is nothing less than a terrorist he is still being revered as a saint. It is beyond belief that the term “Madiba magic”, whatever it may mean, should still be dabbled about. The author believes that nowhere else in world history has such a false image been created, as in the case of Mandela. This is his modest attempt to expose the lies and counter his false image.

Chapter 3

The 19th century Boere states

The Boere states (1838 - 1902)

In the previous century our Boere faulk already had our own sovereign states. They were the Republic of Natalia, the Republic of the Orange Free State, the Transvaal Republic (Z.A.R.) and the Republic of Vryheid. Britain destroyed all these states and subjugated the Boere.

The Netherlands occupied the Cape in 1652 and colonised it with “vryburgers”[8]. The trek to the interior started almost immediately. Not only to acquire living space but, and this is seldom mentioned, also to escape Dutch tyranny. The first Boere republics of Swellendam and Graaf-Reinet were established as early as 1795 in opposition to Dutch domination. But in 1806, after the British took over the Cape from the Dutch, the subjugation of us Boere started in earnest.

Our Boere language was prohibited in the schools and government offices. A Dutch dictatorship was replaced by an iniquitous British dictatorship and by 1830 we Boere, who already was developed our own unique language and culture on the frontier, started leaving the Cape Colony in an enormous mass migration. This was the so called “Great Trek”, the true birth of the Boere faulk. By discarding the yoke of foreign rulers and taking charge of our destiny these emigrant Boere gave Birth to a new faulk, the Boere faulk.

There were two major schools of thought. Piet Retief believed that freedom and independence could be obtained through negotiation with the British, and the Zulus of Natal. The more far-sighted Hendrik Potgieter believed in moving as far away from the British as possible – and this included staying away from the sea – into an area unoccupied by blacks. Retief said: “Natal ho!” Potgieter said: “[Orange. Ed.] Free State and Transvaal ho!” Potgieter proved to be the wiser and more far-sighted man. Retief's plans ended in tragedy and failure. Potgieter's actions led to the successful establishment of the sovereign Boere states of Transvaal and [Orange. Ed.] Free State which were accorded international recognition.
