    White Community of Orania Issues its Own Currency

    White intentional community in South Africa takes another step toward self-determination and independence.

    As the once-advanced First World nation of South Africa continues its downward spiral into disease, savagery, and anarchy since embracing multiracialist 'democracy' in 1994, the peaceful town of Orania, an all-White community of Boer people (also called Afrikaners, descendants of Dutch and French Huguenot pioneers) is increasing its self-sufficiency by issuing its own currency, the 'Ora.'

    Eleanor Lombard, spokeswoman for Orania, stated that "The whole idea is that we are actually working towards the idea of a community that is self-sufficient. ...The symbols on the ora 10 note showed the Afrikaner's history, the ora 20 note his art, the ora 50 note his culture and the ora 100 note depicted Orania."

    According to the BBC, "Many of Orania's 600 residents say they have come here to escape the violence and crime prevalent in the rest of South Africa."

    The South African Press Association (SAPA) openly refers to Orania as a "White homeland." And that it is. Orania's beautifully-designed Web site (unfortunately for us in the English-speaking world, it is only in the Afrikaans language) shows pictures of well-kept houses, manicured lawns, prosperous farms, and attractive White men, women, and children doing all their work for themselves -- resisting the fatal temptation of cheap non-White labor which led to multiracialist disaster for so many White societies.

    SAPA: 'Lombard said that during the unveiling, special momento packages will be on sale.... She said the advantages of the town having its own currency was among others - available cash being replaced with proof of cash and the cash earning interest in the bank; buying power remaining in the community because the currency was only accepted in the town; because the currency could only be spent locally it was safer than cash.

    '...According to Lombard the idea for the currency was first mooted by a Professor Johan van Zyl during a conference by the Orania Movement in 2002. Van Zyl apparently emphasised that a community, which wanted to empower itself needed to do so with as many instruments as possible to further enhance its self determination, and having its own currency unit was good example of this."

    The idea of the Ora being safer than the Rand (the official South African currency) is obvious: If the currency can only be spent in the all-White community, the increasingly common non-White criminal gangs will have very little incentive to steal it. These non-White gangs are covertly -- or even sometimes overtly -- encouraged by the multiracialist Communist/ANC government that rules the once-thriving nation. The gangs have been engaging in a decade-long murder spree directed mainly against White farmers, and thousands have been killed. The Ora represents increased safety and a small degree of withdrawal from the severely dysfunctional 'mainstream' of South African life.

    Wire services report that the South African government's Reserve Bank is "cautious" about the new Oranian currency, stating so far only that the new notes "may not resemble" the notes issued by the official money monopoly.

    Orania Votes for FF Plus

    Despite a visit from ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema in the run-up to the general elections, the district of Orania voted overwhelmingly for the FF Plus in Wednesday’s elections.

    • First results greeted by loud cheer
    • Counting the votes


    In results released at the Independent Electoral Commission centre in Pretoria today, the FF Plus had a clear lead with 242 votes, out of 279 votes cast.

    The ANC managed only three votes in the white Afrikaner enclave in the Northern Cape.

    In March, Malema met Orania Movement president Carel Boshoff junior in Orania. After the meeting he hung ANC election posters along the town’s main road.

    The DA was voted into second place with 26 votes.

    Cope and the ACDP each received three votes. Two votes were spoilt.

    Something to remember about the 3 ANC votes in Orania: voters were allowed to vote at any poll station and those 3 voters were most likely not inhabitants of Orania.

    I think it was most probably three lost minibus taxi drivers on their way to Mamelodi

    There is a dam and water works not to far from the village. Hence there are some temporary government workers in the area on a regular basis.

    If the voter turnout was 279, then this means that the voter turnout was less then 50%, since there must be at least 800 people older then 17 in the area.
    "And God proclaims as a first principle to the rulers, and above all else, that there is nothing which they should so anxiously guard, or of which they are to be such good guardians, as of the purity of the race. They should observe what elements mingle in their offspring;..." Plato Politeia
