White Squatters Krugersdorp South Africa

Why Do The Leaders of the world and the main news agencies ignore the white genocide in South Africa?WHISNews21

The whole world can talk about Oscar “The Blade Runner” but chose to ignore the biggest news story of the 21 Century. Below you will find another one of 1000’s of untold stories that are hidden from the world press.

WHISNews21 thank the people mentioned at the bottom for bringing this to our attention

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS ONLY ONE OF HUNDREDS OF WHITE SQUATTER CAMPS IN SOUTH AFRICA

Sheepishly we park our conspicuously shiny car at the entrance of the white squatter camp in Krugersdorp and head for Irene’s shack – “head-office” for this overlooked community. It’s our second trip to the informal settlement and this time we come bearing potatoes and awkward smiles. Irene, with her bleached hair and hardened soul, fails to flinch at our discomfort or acknowledge our downcast eyes. Instead she beckons us into her makeshift home to observe her newly assembled shrine, dedicated to the athletic achievements of her talented 14-year-old daughter. Excitedly she tells us of the possible opportunity for her to compete overseas – no small feat considering that her training regime consists of running barefoot around the desolate park she calls home.

ory

The informal settlement in the corner of Coronation Park is currently home to 248 poor white South Africans (77 of whom are children). Shacks, tents, caravans and containers huddle close to one another on the grassy outskirts of this government-owned land.

Irene gushes like a proud mother for a couple of minutes before getting down to business. She knows what we are here for even though our ‘bribe’ came in the form of well-meaning carbohydrates. The people at the squatter camp have been exposed to their fair share of media types and journos, all looking for their slice of the story or the award-winning shot. The wary and accusing eyes that follow our movements around the park tell stories of exploitation and mistrust, an unavoidable by-product of being used as mannequins in the storefront of white poverty.

Accompanied by a peculiar array of stray dogs and cats, we stroll around the mishmash of makeshift housing trying (but probably failing) not to appear too much like tourists in an urban zoo. As we pass the concrete block that houses the bathrooms – the last remnants of this one-time caravan park – a putrid stench engulfs me. I feel sick to my stomach and hold my breath for fear of being infected by this filth, immediately feeling guilty for doing so.

Strewn around the camp are relics of past lives – broken down cars, old paintings, chipped ornaments and three-legged chairs. Many of the squatters once lived in comfortable homes and held stable jobs, but the lethal combination of economic crisis and affirmative action has left them retrenched and unemployable. Grumblings of reverse-apartheid and marginalised minorities waft around the park like a bad smell. Of course, there is also the typical cross section of miscreants present; the drug-addicts and alcoholics, the mentally ill and deranged, the strays and misfits who have nowhere else to go.

Our previous visit to Coronation Park was in the middle of winter, when the bitter cold, lack of electricity and running water and inevitable outbreaks of disease threatened the well-being of many of the families. Donkey boilers and semi-regular wood donations were their only saving grace – small pleasures in these tough times. As the wood truck pulled up a mass commotion erupted from the community. People emerged from out of the woodwork to claim their stake in the flammable offerings. A frenzy began, which lasted for about 20 minutes, until all that was left was an empty flatbed and sadness.

Summer at the squatter camp seems somewhat more bearable, but brings with it a whole new set of difficulties. A resident summons us over to show us a gaping hole in her tent caused by a particularly violent hailstorm. Just one of the countless victims of the icy damage and destruction – Mother Nature knows no mercy. Yet on this particular day, the sun is shining, the grass is green and the children (despite being somewhat dirty) are playing happily among themselves outside the camp’s improvised crèche.

My feelings of optimism are shattered by woeful tales of suicide attempts, drug addiction, violence and thievery, as told by a teary middle-aged woman whose husband had recently deserted her. “This is not a good place for anyone. It is not safe here,” she said. However, a couple of shacks down and things don’t seem as dire – vegetable gardens and double-story shacks speak of relentless hope and stubborn pride.

As South Africans, we know something about poverty. We’ve seen the upturned faces at traffic lights and we’ve heard the desperate pleas. Why is it then that talk of neediness and hardship too often seems married to a particular race? Is empathy reserved for a select few? Would I be writing this piece about black squatters? Or are they no longer newsworthy? Do some people deserve to suffer? In spite of our opinions, and all the questions, the truth of the matter remains – unbeknown to most and tucked away in a grimy corner of Krugersdorp lives a group of forgotten people, struggling to survive in hungry exile.

  2. Living in South Africa for the last 35 years and my origin being Rhodesian, (we Rhodesians have a saying, we call our selves the “when we’s and now we call our selves the” Here we’s, Here we go again!) I have truly seen a change in South Africa, not a good one either. We presently have apartheid on the other foot. If you are not a black African, your chances of getting work are overly slim. Furthermore employment does not revolve about education or how experienced one is, it all revolves around colour. Crime? Let it be known that criminals have more rights than the innocent home or business owner who is trying to protect himself from ruthless hard hearted rapists and murderers. Heaven help you if you are faced with an AK47 or illegal pistol and you shoot the assailant in self defense. You better be prepared to be treated worse than the perpetrators. Sadly the government is also corrupt lining their pockets, how can any country go forward if it’s very leaders are corrupt? The freedom they have gained only pays off at the TOP and the poor, unfortunately are getting poorer both black and white people. South Africa has become the refugee camp for the whole of Africa. Let me remind you that all the North African countries also supposedly fought for their freedom, “got it and moved on” they emigrated illegally to Europe and every where else and are quite happy to be Governed by White Governments, why? because their countries went the same way present South Africa is headed. Well let it be known once this our beautiful country goes to the dogs like the rest of Africa where are they going to head to next, crime and all? Look out countries you to may loose your identity and be plagued by the surge of Africans looking for “Whiter Pastures” before you can rub your eyes, It will be over! Unfortunately it’s just a matter of time! Take heed there is nothing worse than loosing your Identity and above all your Nationality.

I think this is a challenge that we are all facing as a nation, the problem is that while we are pointing fingers at each other we wont find solutions. Apartheid is loong gone guys and beside to whom does land belong to? instead of discussing apartheid issues we should be discussing transformation for the next Generation. This land belongs to every1 that live in it as our constitution state.

  6. I personally know of a lady and a few of her friends who desperately try to raise anything they can and are looking for wood for this very camp. I have written to several companies on their behalf with no success. These dear kind people who are not rich but are themselves WHITE and have homes, deliver food parcels, toys,toiletries, stationery and anything they can get their hands on. They do this on a regular basis and have a list of things requested by the “tenants”. So much more is needed ALWAYS. They are far from town and do not have money to travel. Stories are heartbreaking but this lady and friends determination is unstoppable in trying to having anything at all donated to them. Top priority at the moment are blankets and wood and dry foods, canned foods, toiletries. Some firms have donated ,God bless them , but so much more is needed. I cry when I think of someone going to sleep in the camp and wishing that when they wake up that someone will come today with “something”. Having been in an orphanage I know what that feeling is like. Hope is eternal. The the pleasure and gratefulness that these people greet you with cannot be replaced.. For the most part they are humble and yet proud
    I pay tribute to all those who are helping at this camp

  7. I admire your great courage in getting this information out– the world really needs to hear this. It is so very true that endless media attention is given to poor blacks but nothing to poor whites– and the horrific genocide that is being implemented now. Your calm, kind responses to the pooh-poohs and worst, the outright ugly responses are inspiring and a reminder for me not to reduce myself to the lower vibrational frequency of the oppressors that use murder and genocide to make a point. In other words, not to respond with anger, but with truth and non judgment. My prayer is that the world will let the scales of 60 years of propaganda fall off their eyes and see Truth for what it is and to take steps to honor it. Every single human being has value — certainly even the whites. I wish with all my heart to be able to help you all out. Please let me know if I can. I am currently researching different options to try and help get the word out and to bring relief to the oppressed people mentioned in the article above. My prayers are for you, that you will maintain your stoic courage in continuing to get the truth out, and that you are kept safe at all times. May a Divine Energy and Love fill the hearts of the South African whites, and may the black oppressors come to see that killing people is not and will never be okay. Peace, Protection and Love to you and all you seek to help.

I hope that makes sense to you as it is always difficult to put your words on paper to speak it is always easier. Thanks once again John you have done more than most today.

My question is – what do we do about it? There is so much impoverishment around I don’t even know where or how to help. What would really really make a difference? What actions would effect Real change?

  10. Kerri, you are right I write about them because they are white. On the one hand, there are hundreds of news papers and TV stations worldwide who are talking about the poverty of black people worldwide. And on the other hand there are probably only two or three and I include WHISNews21 who talk about white poverty in South Africa. IS this article really then such a big crime Kerri, please be a little merciful on us, we are just trying to highlight the poverty that everyone is ignoring, surly you should find in your heart a warm place somewhere for that thought.

  12. I don’t know about the genocide (heading of article) . Guess white people still own the majority of land and those who live on farms are easy targets? White people seem to be more successful at farming and i do hope we do not go the route Zimbabwe went. I am generalizing on this topic. Some black people (male / female with / without ) government help are also proving themselves in the fields of farming. Like they do on the sports fields etc. There are also hundreds of thousands of black people living in similar conditions all over South Africa. It is not a black / white thing (poverty,crime, hopeless future). Here in the western cape we also see a clear link to alcohol abuse etc and the poverty cycle. Not judging. I would too resort to booze if I have no hope. If the EFF was not so obsessed with race I would support some of their radical ideas. Clearly pure capitalism is not working. Governments are ruled by mighty corporations all over the world. We should look within for solutions that help those who want to be helped and not ask to be noticed by the world out there. We can learn from Mugabe 20 years ago and the importance he placed on education for all. Landing in a situation like this can happen to all. This government is not really concerned with the plight of the poor. (Black or white) . Look at the overall indulgences and corruption. But the time is coming when black and white will unite on ground level and revolt.

(ok let’s say 30-50%). we sure are living in troubled times. I am a christian and if i may quote Jesus “+- in the end because of the hardships there will not be love” . I see it here in Cape Town with the kids on the streets. and i look at my own heart and I say to myself : practice what you preach. there are so many desperate people and it gets irritating when you are approached by desperate people on a daily basis. I have no other wise answers except “May God help us all.”

  13. The plight of the people living in this squatter camp has been brought to my attention in a variety of ways during the last few months. Part of me feel moved to offer support yet I have not been able to take any action. I am a little baffled by this conflict and I have been reflecting on this for a while now. This article has sparked some of the hesitation I feel .
    The headline and intro of the article is complete and utter nonsense. This is most definitely NOT the biggest news story of the 21st century – in fact it does not even make the top 200 list.

    There are millions of people living in squatter camps all across the world from a variety of cultures. The ones mentioned here are ONLY 248 – not that I am by any means saying they are not important – quite the opposite but then so too are the other people living in squatter camps.

    The REAL tragedy here is the fact that “Afrikaners” are not able to group their resources together to make a significant change. This should be done quietly without the need to make it world news or to enforce sympathy from others. There are many who own factories or businesses with sufficient resources to completely overhaul this place and make it a place of safety where children can grow up to respect themselves instead of growing up in a culture of blame. Fact is nobody owes you anything ……..you owe it to yourself to change things if you don’t like it. And those of us who are able to make a change should do so for the same reason.

    This is something that I think Afrikaners have proven to do quite well during the last 20 years.

    There are thousands of Afrikaners who grew up very poor who never received any hand-outs yet still managed to build a good life even if it is a simple one without luxuries. How do they manage to do it with affirmative action and a bad economy? My point being that we cannot blame affirmative action for everything

    I have noticed there are a good few people trying to raise funds to help in this situation but they seem unable to get people mobilized to take action ……WHY?….because they try to make this a political issue. Keep politics out of it…..help these people because they need help – that’s it!

    • Perine, you are very right it is my doing that the headline is intended to draw attention. However it is a fact that Genocide is being implemented in south Africa, you can google it right now. As for the poverty of the “Only 248” you are right once again that is just a drop in the ocean, it is however just the tip of the ice berg there are almost one million almost a third of the entire white population of South Africa living like this and it is growing by the day. I are not asking for money or food I are only highlighting the situation so that the world knows what is going on in South Africa. As for the rich Afrikaners and we both know there are some, some of them help and some don’t. The ones that do help I believe are doing it quietly for fear of victimization. In my defense, as it is entirely my doing that the headline reads the way it does, I did not say it was the best story, I said it was the best kept secret. The secret is certainly being kept under wraps, as very few people are even aware of the farm murders in South Africa not even to mention about 100000 without food or home. The British created the word Afrikaner to finally conquer the Boer after the Anglo Boer War and as a Boer I think the Afrikaners of today need to go back to their roots and then they will in your words “group their resources to make a significant change” Perine I like your comments and ask that if you see anything you don’t agree with or feel I am over reacting on, please feel free to let me know. We can be friends I am sure….

  14. The person reading this article and seeing the word “white” as the problem is as racist as the people who implemented apartheid. Poverty does not discriminate especially in this economic environment. The real problem here is that most of these people were self-sufficient in stable jobs but due to the ruling parties policy of affirmative action being implemented on minorities this is the result and with ever more stringent implementation its just going to get worse. So what sort of goverment causes their own citizens to suffer? Is the goverment not by the people, for the people? To serve the people? Is this not a democracy? Does democracy not stand for equal rights for every man woman and child? And if so how dare they wave the democracy banner with one hand and a wip in the other? Punish people for the past! Yeah right, lets see how that moves the country forward. The anc has moved back to their pre-democracy doctrine of marxism (which got them banned from S.A) under the cover of a fluffy white cloud of democratic propaganda, they’re just too cowardly to openly admit it. Probably knowing it makes you a target for allied communstist fighting nations. But the funny thing about marxism just like apartheid and racism it does discriminate,not only against race,sex and culture but individuality,freedom and any person who threaten their rule, including their own supporters with aim to make the nation totally dependent on the goverment and thus by giving the goverment total control and power over the people. So even those still supporting the anc would at some point be in the sights of the goverment for some reason. Anyone still blind to these facts is in for a rude awakening.

Tens of thousands of black people in South Africa have been enduring these same conditions for well over 50 years.. Or more. And still continue to do so.
    Is there some sort of expectation of shock & horror for this situation, and that white people should be living in a life style or of a standard that is higher than their black counter parts, simply because they are white??

    • The answer is very simply Benrock22, for 50 years the world has focused on black people living below the poverty line and in shanty towns and make shift camps. Now for about 25 years and counting White people are living below the poverty line and in shanty towns and make shift camps and the world is not focused on them at all. For 50 years the world has taken notice of the living conditions of the blacks but know that the whites are in the same position it is ignored, totally. That is why I am highlighting the 100,000 whites the have been murdered by blacks since 1994 and the 35% of the total white population of South Africa who live without hope or home to call their own and little or no food.

        You will also see that the murder rate in SA was less in 2011/2012 than in 1970 during apartheid (when many black folk were brutally murdered by whites)! I have the facts and I still maintain that you cannot refer to this as white genocide! Murder is horrific regardless of race or colour.

It is going to be hard to let the truth surface as it is hard for most people too believe that most of what they had heard for most of their lives, and believed was not all the truth. We must also remember even though we are frustrated by whats happening to us, we must keep our cool, for a lack of a better word, and try and explain the truth in a civil and a polite way.

    • What do you have to say about the 100,000 farmers that have been murdered in South Africa??? bear also in mind that the government do absolutely nothing to assist the poor whites, the poor whites only have themselves to help each other. Yes there are blacks also living in squatter camps but here also bear in mind that with the borders being open to every tom dick & harry from other African country’s, there are 1000’s entering South Africa every day, so yeah the only place for them is a squatter camp, that was there choice! Why why why are people so horrible to the poor whites living in squatter camps? it was not there choice, there jobs were taken from them, because of positive action they are unable to find any other work, & this led to them loosing there homes & having no income. You Megan say that 248 people is hardly genocide! you need to do your home work & look up how many white people have been murdered, have you ever experienced a family member being murdered? have you? NO would probable be your answer, my father-in-law was tortured & murdered, all he had on him was about R20.00 & his watch, so please before you start mouthing off about the poor whites do your homework. People like you don’t have a heart you have a stone as a heart.

Fate is the opportunity….destiny is what we choose to do with it. I have been in a “squatter camp” kind of environment, but I chose to climb out of it…just as I keep choosing my destiny based on the choices I make with what life hands me. I was not educated in the traditional sense, but I read a lot. I was downtrodden, but I chose to believe in my abilities. EVERY single thing I am and have today…was based on choices I made….

        I am not trying to make those we are talking about here small, just that ultimately, as adults, we do make choices…good or bad….and our lives are a direct result of that.

Maybe you can do what I do, tell the world what is happeninghere, as they seem to overlook all of this poverty and violence. Why I highlight the white poverty is because the world through years of propaganda, do not believe that the white Boer nation of South Africa are also suffering and being systematically wiped out. It is sad even though I know you cannot admit it, I believe that it is true. This may surprise you but I do not wish you any harm, and somehow I believe you don’t wish me any either, but there is a force out there that is putting swords in our hands. I believe that if all people in South Africa think as you do, there would be hope for us all, but you know most don’t. I can only hope and pray that if we ever meet we will shake hands in friendship, without weapons in our hands and hatred in our eyes. Thanks for your comment you are always welcome.

  21. To call this genocide is hugely problematic not to mention sensationalist and simply inaccurate. Whilst affirmative action may mean that you aren’t able to advance quite as high as you’d like up the corporate ladder, it does not lead to this level of poverty. Also let’s face it the vast majority of white south Africans live comfortable lives. Poverty is always distressing, particularly when you see the effects on the children but it is no sadder or more shocking in any particular community. Using this community as evidence of genocide is geared towards inciting hatred around issues of race which is where we should be working to heal. Just because they are white does not/should not make them exempt from a crisis effecting all South Africans.

    • Alicia I am sorry that you do not see the problem here, it is staring you in the eyes and yet you cannot see it. However years of propaganda has made you believe only what the press and Tv want you to believe. Starting with your comment that most South Africans live comfortable, as far as I know at least one third of all white South Africans live in poverty that’s 33%. Now taking into consideration that as many as 20% are not white South Africans and infact foreigners. That make the 33% move up to perhaps 40% or more. No that becomes a close to almost half of white South Africans, and even if I am out a little on my figures you have to admit it is more than most in your comment. As for the sensationalism of my in my article’s heading, you are right it is sensationalism, but the fact is, it is the truth. As I have explained before this is just part of the genocide plan that is in place in South Africa and the world needs to know. What you seem to dismiss is that over 100,000 white people have been murdered by blacks in South Africa. If you believe this is not the truth then I can only believe that you do not want to believe it. http://ajkraad.wix.com/genocide-museum if you want to be empowered by the truth take only 3 minutes of your time and visit this website.

    • Alicia….I grew up in poverty (very similar to the above) but that was then and this is now. I work 16 hours a day. 6 days a week, I don’t do anything other than work, eat and sleep but I am one deal away from joining the people here. I have no savings, sold everything of value, maxed borrowings, I don’t own a thing, other than a 10 year old car. Jobs are NOT easy to come by especially if your colour and age is against you…so I disagree with your statement “Whilst affirmative action may mean that you aren’t able to advance quite as high as you’d like up the corporate ladder, it does not lead to this level of poverty. Also let’s face it the vast majority of white south Africans live comfortable lives”

      My business (ironically enough) is finding jobs for people. It is distressing to find how many talented, able people are turned away because of the colour of their skin.

      We have people who are educated, used to be in top management who have had the hope ground out of them. Have you seen how a man disintegrates over time once he has been retrenched? …and sadly, those who continue to fight the good fight, who don’t give up, always live with that fear and insecurity. My heart goes out to all the homeless, hungry people out there…but more especially to my husband, my brother, my brother in law…victims of affirmative action. Believe me when I say, hunger pains & hopelessness feel the same way , no matter what your skin colour is…

      I agree with the author here, the poverty of the black race is thrown in our face daily, but we don’t often hear about the poverty of the whites in this country…they are just AS deserving of our caring!

    • Alaric your comment about sensationalism is so right, normally I would not do that, but it is the only way to spread the word. No one seems to want to hear or listen to the plight of the poor whites in South Africa. Just yesterday I was traveling from Tennessee to South Carolina and had a short talk to a man at a gas station, and his remark to me was that because of apartheid we deserve to be killed as we took their country. So without getting into a heated argument with him as he seemed to be a nice person I asked him to go onto the Internet when he gets home and google “Farm Murders In South Africa” and then think again when he says we deserve what we are getting. The thing is 60 years a professional and constant propaganda against South Africa by the world’s liberal leaders and press, is why that man answered me the way he did. But the truth is finally coming out slowly but surly, people are starting to question what they have been told over the past 60 years about us. If you are a South African you and I both know that 90% of the apartheid propaganda was not true. We did not go around murdering and raping every black person we could get hold of. So yes I need to make my headline as sensationalist as possible, yet as sensationalist as it is, it is still the truth and the truth is what will free us. Alaric I hope you will forgive me for being sensationalist as I need to be. I also thank you so much for commenting and hope that you will visit us again and whenever you feel you need to comment good or bad we can still be friends.

It is things like these I shake my head at, the fact that blacks will never let go of Apartheid, and children being born in the past years have NOTHING to do with Apartheid, yet that is the ONLY excuse they can keep on bringing up so that the world can feel sorry for them.

The entire world will unite against us and wipe us out once and for all. I believe, and you may disagree with me, because I cannot guarantee that I am right, we need a homeland. A place where we can live in peace and safety for all the days of our and our children’s lives.That homeland we should be prepared to defend with our lives so that we can live and die in peace there. In that homeland we can pray freely to our God, and our children can be schooled in our own language and culture. A homeland where our kids and woman are safe from being raped, molested and killed while attending Church, School or sleeping in our beds. A homeland where our farmers can farm and produce good food without having to protect not only their crops but their families while at work or at sleep. Every person on earth strives for this and is allowed this dream, yet for us it is not. However the chances we will be granted this seems out of the question. What will happen when we finally have no hope, only God knows. maybe God will only help us when we realize that we are the Boer Nation and not the Afrikaner nation created by the British to divide and conquer us forever. I don’t have all the answers but in the dark of night with the enemy all around me singing, “Shoot the Boer’ I would feel a little safer with you close by.
