Update on Campaign Against Murder of South African Farmers
6 March 2012:
48 European Members of Parliament from 19 different member states and 7 political groups condemn ‘farm attacks’ against white South Africans
Philip Claeys (VB) thanks Louis Michel (MR) for his support
Only the Greens – the group the N-VA is part of – refuses to take action and protect the South African Boers.
Philip Claeys (Vlaams Belang), Andreas Mölzer (FPÖ) and Fiorello Provera (Lega Nord) submitted a written declaration to the European Parliament to protest against the ongoing ‘farm attacks’ in South Africa, which have already led to the death of thousands of Boers – white South Africans.
This declaration emphasizes the concern of the European Parliament and the systematic character of the attacks against white South Africans, and asks the South African government to urgently take measures to protect the Boers.
The declaration has been signed by 48 European Members of Parliament from 19 different member states and 7 political groups: Socialists, Liberals, Christian Democrats, Independents, the Eurosceptics of the EFD and the ECR, and even a member of the Communist group. “This shows that the horrendous ‘farm attacks’ are of great concern to several political groups across Europe”, Philip Claeys MEP concluded.
Vlaams Belang would like to thank in particular Louis Michel (MR) for his remarkable support for this initiative.
Another remarkable fact is that only one group did not support this declaration: the Greens - of which Frieda Brepoels (N-VA) is a member. Vlaams Belang regrets the fact that the Greens and the N-VA apparently are not concerned by the massive killing of white South African Boers…
