White Minority Public Protest
In about 7 hours according to their website, white South Africans will release red balloons today in a number of cities around the world (Cape Town, Pretoria, Perth, London, Chicago etc.), the significance of this pollution of our environment is that this is a manner in which the whites have decided to protest to let everyone around the world know that they have had enough. In style with red balloons and exclusively at their white minority public protest dubbed “Red October”.
They allege that they will no-longer be silent about the oppression of the white South African Ethnic Minority. They say they can no-longer tolerate the destruction of their infrastructure, the filthy government hospitals, the pathetic educational system, dirty rivers and dams, uninhabitable parks and public areas, dangerous neighbourhoods and filthy streets and bad roads. They say their list is endless and they have had enough.
They allude that they have also tired of corrupt governance and “racist Broad Based Economic Empowerment and affirmative action”, which they believe excludes white South Africans from the job market and also makes it impossible for businesses and companies to make contributions to the thousands of white people living in squatter camps.
They want to be in charge of their own schools and propel a standard of education that is fitting for them as they are accustomed to such in “their” culture. They go on and on to rant about many other things including the killing of white farmers on their own property etc.
This really sounds selfish to me. Such a protest seems to fail to put adequate context to the matters they raise. It is as if these white people think blacks are not subject to rape, torture, vandalism, murder and even joblessness. I am amazed at their audacity to even stand behind such a notion by which they unite. Even the Rector of the Free State University Mr Jonathon Jansen said this was a waste of time.
