"Genoeg is genoeg." - ''Enough is Enough'' as White Farmers protest at the Murder Rate in South Africa
South Africa has a huge problem with the murder of its citizens - topping near 20,000 a year out of a pop of approx. 55 Million
While the rural murder rate is a lot lower - amongst rural White farmers it is very high
Thousands have been murdered since the end of Apartheid and the numbers are now on the rise once again.
There is a line of argument that while robbery may well be a motive the inclusion of racist overtones cannot be ruled out either
Hopefully by organising themselves they can draw International attention to the way they are being treated:
"Genoeg is genoeg." - Enough is enough. That was the message on Monday, as (mostly white) activists carried crosses and blocked roads to demand better protection for South Africa's farms, after they were targeted in a spate of murders.
The South African Police Service has argued that the majority of attackers are motivated purely by a desire to rob farmers, but the country's Institute of Race Relations has warned there may be a racial element to some of the attacks.
There's a sense in some quarters that white farmers are being targeted in particular.Are protesters right on South Africa farm murders? - BBC News
