Boers demonstrate against ethnic-cleansing targetting them in South Africa
Westminster, United Kingdom -- On Saturday morning, 8 May 2010, around
20 Afrikaners, referring to themselves as “Boere”, conducted a “silent
protest” in Parliament Square against what is known in South Africa as
“Plaasmoorde” – Farm Murders.
With their mouths taped up and without
chanting any of the slogans on their placards ranging from “More than
3,000 farmers murdered since 1994” and “Families butchered
everyday” to “No farmers, no food” and “Boer genocide = African famine”
they symbolised the silence of the world press when it comes to the
reporting of these genocidal killings.
Apart from two high profile
murders which had enticed a couple of media reports for a week or two,
these often very gruesome murders have gone largely unnoticed.
