    Post VOC - Dutch East India Company - Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie

    VOC - Dutch East India Company - Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie
    On March 20, 1602, the representatives of the provinces of the Dutch republic, granted a the Dutch East India Company (Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie or VOC) a monopoly on the trade in the East Indies. Its purpose was not only trade; the Compagnie also had to fight the enemies of the Republic and prevent other European nations to enter the East India trade. During its history of 200 years, the VOC became the largest company of its kind, trading spices like nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and pepper, and other consumer products like tea, silk and chinese porcelain.

    Her factories or tradecentres were world famous: Desjima in Japan, Mokha in Yemen, Surat in Persia and of course Batavia, the Company's headquarters on Java.
    De Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie (VOC) werd opgericht op 20 maart 1602. De Staten Generaal van de Republiek der Zeven ProvinciŽn verleenden de VOC een octrooy met het monopolie op de handel met IndiŽ - alle landen ten oosten van de Kaap de Goede Hoop - tot afbreuk van de landsvijanden en tot wering van andere natiŽn. Tijdens haar 200-jarig bestaan groeide de VOC uit tot het grootste bedrijf uit haar tijd, met met als handelswaar specerijen zoals kruidnagel, nootmuskaat, kaneel en peper, en andere producten als zijde, thee, zijde en porcelein.

    Wereldberoemd waren haar factorijen, handelsnederzettingen zoals Desjima in Japan, Mokha in Jemen, Surat in PerziŽ, en natuurlijk Batavia, het hoofdkwartier op Java

    Right, and what is happening now? South-Africa will be another desert as more whites fleeding the country, and the negroes* can not rule and organize anything. Soon South-Africa will be just like nations like Mali, Zimbabwe or Senegal.

    We will see what is gonna happen. There is a growing resentment against what is happening now. The effect of this is an open question. Here some "enlightened wisdom":
    Quote Originally Posted by Montesquieu

    The Europeans, having extirpated the Americans, were obliged to make slaves of the Africans, for clearing such vast tracts of land.

    Sugar would be too dear, if the plants which produce it were cultivated by any other than slaves.

    These creatures are all over black, and with such a flat nose, that they can scarcely be pitied.

    It is hardly to be believed that God, who is a wise being, should place a soul, especially a good soul, in such a black ugly body.

    It is so natural to look upon colour as the criterion of human nature, that the Asiatics, among whom eunuchs are employed, always deprive the blacks of their resemblance to us by a more opprobrious distinction.

    The colour of the skin may be determined by that of the hair, which, among the Egyptians, (the best philosophers in the world,) was of such importance, that they put to death all the red-haired men who fell into their hands.

    The Negroes prefer a glass necklace to that gold which polite nations so highly value; can there be a greater proof of their wanting common-sense?

    It is impossible for us to suppose these creatures to be men; because, allowing them to be men, a suspicion would follow, that we ourselves are not Christians.

    Weak minds exaggerate too much the wrong done to the Africans. For, were the case as they state it, would the European powers, who make so many needless conventions among themselves, have failed to enter into a general one, in behalf of humanity and compassion?

    The tides is turning concience is changing:
    University students insist on tuition in Afrikaans
    Pretoria, South Africa
    18 August 2005 02:21

    University of Pretoria students sang the apartheid-era national anthem Die Stem during a protest on Thursday against the alleged sidelining of Afrikaans at the institution.

    Protesters sported a Freedom Front Plus banner, the university coat of arms, placards and chanted slogans such as "Engels se gat [English's arse]" and "Waar's demokrasie nou? [Where is democracy now?]".

    During a protest march on campus, the group delivered a memorandum to the university administration to complain about what protesters said is the marginalising of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction.

    "In July, the university management told us they were ready to do away with Afrikaans completely in classes," said march organiser and student representative council president Cornelius van Rensburg. "We cannot let that happen."

    The group demanded an immediate halt to classes being "anglicised" and that students insisting on Afrikaans classes be accommodated.

    Van Rensburg estimated between 500 and 1 000 students had joined the march.

    "Afrikaans money paid for this university. We have paid for an Afrikaans education but we do not receive it.

    "It is our constitutional right to be taught in our mother tongue," he said, addressing the crowd to loud applause and cheering.

    He alleged that staff being hired at the university do not speak "a word of Afrikaans" and suggested that this increases the workload of Afrikaans-speaking staff.

    The march was peaceful and was observed by campus security personnel.

    "I don't have a problem with people expressing their opinion. It is their democratic right," said bystander Ishmael Mohono, a member of the Pan Africanist Students' Movement of Azania, the youth wing of the Pan Africanist Congress.

    "But statements worn on the T-shirts of these protesters, such as 'English Only is erger as Slegs Blankes [English Only is worse than Whites Only]' or 'Praat Afrikaans of hou jou bek [Speak Afrikaans or shut up]' are really insulting and disturbing."

    Mohono said he saw a member of staff "waving her hands and cheering in support of the marchers" as they gathered outside the university's administration building where they delivered the memorandum.

    "It is unacceptable and unprofessional for a member of staff to behave in this way. She should leave her politics at home." -- Sapa
