expropriation without compensation

The greatest threat we farmers face is from proposed legislation.

The deadline for submissions to defend our property rights is this coming Friday the 15th of June.

The Institute of Race Relations (IRR) is an advocacy organisation that is pushing a thoughtful, considered, unemotional and rational campaign against the government’s planned expropriation-without-compensation law.

No amount of media spin can deny the fact that this proposed legislation is a disaster. Not only for farming but for everyone as once the government has set the legal precedent of taking without compensation there is nothing to stop them from taking whatever they want of yours.

Please click here to add your voice. It is a very easy process. Interesting reading before adding your name.

I wrote on this issue here, back in February.

City folk must not make the mistake of thinking that this is a rural issue.

Joining the IRR for R100 a month is a good investment in an advocacy organisation that works whilst we go on trying to do our jobs.
