Eugene Terre'Blanche, 1988

The Boer are the only African white nation, the biological and spiritual descendants of the Trekboers, of the Voortrekkers, of the Boers of the Boer Republics. The Afrikaners are the Afrikaans-speaking. To use the term “Afrikaner” only for Afrikaans-speaking whites, when the Afrikaans-speaking whites of southern Africa were part of different countries, fought for different nations, lived different histories, and have a different spirit, is meaningless.
Speaking the same language doesn’t mean being a nation. Speak a particular language does not mean to have particular biological and spiritual characteristics.

Eugene Terre’Blanche, historical Boer leader, spending his life to unite Afrikaners (with reference to Afrikaans-speaking whites) and other whites of southern Africa, and not to divide them, but under the flags of the Boer nation, for to make them Boers. Because the Boer nation can only belong to the Boers, and not just to the Afrikaans-speaking whites.
The Boer nation only, as a white nation, is entitled to independence in southern Africa.
This simple truth appears to have been forgotten, due to the severe identity crisis that afflicts all the peoples of southern Africa. A crisis of identity promoted by the regime, the international communist-capitalist forces, and many “white Afrikaner” movements, particularly the Vryhedisfront Plus (VF+) and now also the Volksraad Verkiesing Kommissie (VVK).

So, it is better to remember a few words of Terre’Blanche.

The following text come from an article by Marco Granelli, “Ageing AWB strongman is still stuck in the past”, of the 17th May 1999, about a meeting of Eugene Terre’Blanche with some Pretoria University students.


“It’s a Peoples’ God-given right to be free and to be separate,” he told the mixed audience. He warned of a looming revolution not by the whites but by blacks too who were being forced to surrender their ethnic roots in favour of one unified state. These people the Sotho, Xhosa, Tswana, Zulu were equally entitled to self-determination and would soon fight for it.


“Is Adam Small [Afrikaans-speaking coloured writer. Ed] an Afrikaner?” one student asked. “You can be a brown Afrikaner but you will never be a Boer,” intoned Terre’Blanche to a smattering of applause from a small group of right-wing supporters.
The white students asked about the Volkstaat. “How can there be a Volkstaat in the whole of the old Transvaal including Pretoria and Johannesburg?” Terre’Blanche said black people had no claim to the old Transvaal. “Black people must prove they have a higher claim than our Voortrekker forefathers. They were not here. They were in the Transkei, Lesotho, Zululand. We settled this land.”
