Afrikaner: Freedom Front Plus Reaction to Dalai Lama Refusal

Freedom Front Plus have expressed their shock at South Africa's refusal to allow the Dalai Lama into the country.

Below is a statement issued by Dr. Frik van Heerden, the Freedom Front Plus Chairperson of Foreign Relations Committee

The Freedom Front Plus has with shock taken note of the ANC government's true attitude toward human rights. According to Dr. Frik van Heerden, the chairperson of the Freedom Front Plus' foreign relations committee, the refusal by South Africa's department of Foreign Affairs to allow the Dalai Lama entry into the country, is a crying shame, especially given the fact that the ANC prides itself on its attitude toward human rights.

The Freedom Front Plus is at present a co-member of Tibet of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) and sees it as its moral duty to assist Tibet and the Dalai Lama in this matter.

The Dalai Lama certainly more than anybody else in the world embodies the concept of human rights and specifically that of self-determination and human dignity, both rights which are regarded highly by the Freedom Front Plus. Dr. van Heerden furthermore mentions that it is extremely ironic that the refusal comes in the same week that Human Rights are celebrated in South Africa. "It is now clear that the ANC is not serious to truly respect the rights as contained in the Constitution. This action explains why the ANC has regularly to be taken to court in order to have human rights respected, such as, amongst others, the constitutional court to allow citizens living overseas to vote."

The Freedom Front Plus views this action of the Department of Foreign Affairs in a serious light and will submit complaints in this regard to the United Nations, UNPO and the South African Human Rights Commission.

It probably won't be a popular thing to say but I'm not a fan of the Lama personality cult nor his "friends" and backers. Many of the recent protests in Burma and Tibet involving monks had all the hallmarks of a George Soros style "colour revolution". Soros also happens to be the guy who arranged a number of coups in Eastern Europe and who has close ties to the DA (liberal Zionist party)
in South Africa.

I don't dispute that there are legitimate grievances between China and Tibet but am glad that in this particular instance SA isn't letting itself get dragged into a mudslinging contest.

Guess I'm being selfish here but I sincerely doubt that the Lama and his mob would have supported our cause (Afrikaner independence and freedom) so why on earth should we be wasting time on him? The FF should rather stick to promoting our cause instead of getting mixed up in the disputes of others.

I agree with RoyBatty, the Dalai Lama holds nothing for the Afrikaner to get exited about, I do not hear him condemning the slaughter of white farmers and the seizing of land that was never the possesion of the black hoards to begin with. As a human being I feel sorry for their fight against communism, but they did nothing when our soldiers were dying in SWA and Angola. As for the conference, why not hold it in pienk Frikkie's back yard, the UK would probably love to host something concerned with human rights.
