- A senior consultant for the ISS said there's no evidence to substantiate claims of white genocide in South Africa
- He added that telling the world there is white genocide is reckless
- Meanwhile, the organisers of the #BlackMonday march called on Trump to intervene in farm attacks and murders in SA
An Institute for Security Studies (ISS) senior consultant says there's no evidence to back claims that there's white genocide in South Africa.
Political experts have also warned that making the world think there is white genocide in the country, without substantial evidence, is reckless.
On Monday, a group of people congregated outside the US embassy for the #BlackMonday march to tell the rest of the world about white genocide in SA.
Byliefeldt said the marches hoped to get an update from the US leader after his land expropriation tweet.
She added that when the memorandum is handed over, they will ask Trump to intervene in the farm murder issue: "We are directly asking him for help. ”
In a live stream via her cellphone, Byliefeldt said:
"Mr Trump, I would like you to come to SA and see for yourself that there is an ongoing slaughter of the white minority and other minority groups. Not only are we murdered and slaughtered like sheep, we are on the brink of losing our property. We need your help.”
Byliefeldt is of the opinion that not enough is being done in SA to curb farm attacks and murders, despite the police's efforts to respond to farm attacks, as well as making several arrests.
She claimed 80% of South Africa's police force is corrupt and have criminal records.
Byliefeldt did not disclose the source of the information.
Meanwhile, the group handed over a memorandum to the Austrialian High Commission.
The Citizen reported that Willie Cloete, the NCP leader, said the group wanted an independent Afrikaner state.
According to Cloete, whites aren't just killed, but their language and culture is being downgraded too.
"We want a state of our own.”
Byliefeldt also expressed her disapointment that AfriForum did not join the protest.
However, AfriForum's Ian Cameron said the lobby group was only informed of the march a week before.
Cameron said this didn't give them sufficient time to organise their campaign. He said the lobby group will carry on their campaign against farm murders in South African and around the world.
"We will focus on telling the stories of victims who survived, but also those who aren’t lucky enough to be able to tell their own stories.”
Meanwile, Johan Burger, a senior ISS consultant, called the remarks reckless.
Burger said when extreme right-wing groups make claims of genocide, they are asked to substantiate their claims, but then get no reaction.
He added there is absolutely no evidence to prove there is white genocide.
