Farmers are being murdered in South Africa. It's happening, and it's real.

That's the message that Bradley was trying to send to the world when he recorded himself shortly after the murder of his sister's husband.

The murders across South Africa are affecting all of our citizens. We ask that you share this around the world and we urge you to please contact your local government representatives, and forward this information and make the World aware that farm attacks in South Africa are very real.

John Bosman was shot and stabbed as he tried to fight off the intruders while telling his wife to barricade herself in their bedroom and call their security company.

The armed response arrived and shot at the murderers, but they were too late. John did not survive the attack.

It's not only white farmers that are murdered. Last week a black farmer was also murdered on his farm in the Free State.

Bradley called on the world to help lift what he called gag orders on the press. He feels the media is being forced to keep quiet about the extent of farm murders.
