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.

Orania to help poor Afrikaners

The white separatist enclave of Orania in the Northern Cape, said today said it was launching a project to assist poor Afrikaners financially.

Eleanor Lombard, a spokesperson for Orania, said in a statement more and more Afrikaners were struggling to make ends meet. Some of these people go to Orania in an attempt to start over and make a living.

She said the community in Orania wanted to reach out to these people, but the financial demand to supply them with housing and jobs were too much. To meet this demand, an aid fund has been set up to collect money.

A project would also be launched next year to allow homeless Afrikaner children to go to school in Orania. The success of this project would however depend on donations, Lombard said.
