‘White farmers will not allow their farms to be stolen’
White farmers in the Eastern Cape of South Africa are unanimous in their rejection of the legalised theft of their farms and are preparing themselves to protect their legal property with everything at their disposal.

Johan Steyn, Eastern Cape Chairman of agricultural union TLU-SA, released a statement after an e-conference for TLU-SA Eastern Cape members this weekend warning the South African government to back off.
“TLU-SA’s objective is to ensure producers remain on their farms under sustainable and economically viable conditions, to the benefit of all in South Africa. With the publication of a list of 195 farms identified for legalised theft by the ANC, the government has left farmers with no alternative but to protect their legal property by any means.”
Steyn said that farmers will not allow Communist-inspired government policy to remove them from their farms nor to steal them. He further pointed out that the assumptions upon which the government’s policy is based, consist of lies and misrepresentations.
“No land has been stolen by white farmers. This is our property which has been bought and upon which interest, tax, transfer and registration fees have been paid. Farmers, as a result of their contribution to all residents of South Africa, should be regarded as a national asset.
In reality though, the government treats us as the enemy. We consider the government’s objective to steal our property – of any nature whatsoever – as a declaration of war and we will react accordingly.”
He continued by saying that farmers wish only to be left alone to fulfil their calling in life; to produce affordable food and fibre for every South African. Steyn emphasised that farmers acquit themselves of their task admirably while earning considerable foreign currency for the country.
“The ANC continues to prove that they are not interested in facts, reason, dialogue nor economic realities. They continue to trample and ignore the rights of whites in general and farmers specifically, all the while adopting an antagonistic stance towards these citizens of this country. We continue to pray for peace and prosperity for our country but will protect our legal property with all means possible. The ANC is forcing this upon us.”
Steyn requested the government to come to their senses and prevent a tragedy of immeasurable proportions in South Africa.
