Volkstaat (Afrikaans for "People's state") is a proposal for the establishment of a homeland for Afrikaners. Outside a possible use of force, the South African Constitution and International Legislation present certain possibilities for the establishment of such a state. The South African regime declared that they would not support a Volkstaat, but "would do everything they could to ensure the protection of the Afrikaner language and culture". What a fine job they are doing.

Mathew Phosa (of the ANC) on the Volkstaat

Here is a quote from a paper by Mathew Phosa - for a National Workshop presented by the National Peace Secretariat at the Police Board - on the 30th June 1993, at the Jan Smuts Holiday Inn. He was quite a bigshot in the ANC back then.

The Volkfront and AWB were executing a specific agenda: use violence to blackmail delegates at the World Trade Centre into accepting the diabolical concept of a Volkstaat. We say, that the idea of a Volkstaat lies torn and tattered as part of the debris left in the wake of last week's acts of terrorism at the World Trade Centre. This idea of a Volkstaat should never again be entertained by anyone at the World Trade Centre because, we all now know what Volkstaat means: facisms, racism, terrorism and racial hatred. Volkstaat means the extermination of the black majority. This ugliness must be crushed before it causes more harm than it has thus far done. The status quo must also go and no self-respecting persons should waste their time negotiating to protect this monstrosity which can only consume all of us. Volkstaat means continued oppression and exploitation. Volkstaat means the worst form of McCathyism as evidenced by the recent cold blooded assassination of cde Chris Hani.
