“Right of Return” for white South Africans receives major media breakthrough
There is an online campaign to ask the governments of Holland and the UK to grant citizenship to white South Africans under the concept of right of return.
Similar cases exist all over the world. Israel extends this right to any member of an approved Jewish group. Italy offers this to ethnic Italians living in the Western Hemisphere. Germany allows ethnic Germans, who were deported to central Asia by Stalin, to come to Germany. Ukraine allowed ethnic Crimean Tartars, also deported by Stalin, to return to Crimea.
A petition on Change.org was started only six days ago and already has over 28,500 signatures. It has now received major publicity in both South Africa and England.
Chang.org petition: Allow All White South Africans the right of return to Europe.
The online call to action demands the European Commission (EC) allows all white South Africans to obtain automatic European citizenship.
The petition has already gained more than 1,000 supporters in just half a day.
Rodrigo de Campos, who started the campaign, is gaining support for his belief that the “white South African population currently faces ethnic cleansing and persecutions” at the hands of the ruling ANC government, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party and “various individual anti-white aggressors”.
He also says: “Over 4000 white farmers have been brutally murdered, often including torture and rape and mutilation.”
An increasing number of supporters believe the solution to this is for white South Africans – and white Zimbabweans and Namibians – to be allowed to “return” to whatever nation the majority of their ancestors are from – which in most cases is the Netherlands or the UK.
The petition compares white South Africans to Jews being allowed citizenship in Israel.
It says: “Based on the Israeli government’s policy of allowing all Jews the right to return to Israel, we believe it is not only advisable but morally obligatory that Europe should allow all white South Africans the right to return.”
Currently South Africans, of any colour, applying for British Citizenship have to tick all the boxes people from any other country outside the EU have to.
This includes having lived in the UK for at least five years before applying – usually on a work visa.
