**South African Farmers Turn to Self-Sufficient Communities Amid Alarming Crime Rates**
Crime in South Africa has reached crisis levels, with a staggering three murders occurring every hour. As a result, Afrikaners have started establishing “anchor communities” where they can provide their own security and live safely. This comes in the wake of reports of horrifying incidents involving farmers being attacked and tortured on their properties.
In the first quarter of 2023, South Africa saw 6,289 murders compared to 6,083 during the same period last year. Attempted murders, assaults, robberies, and armed robberies also saw significant increases. However, farm murders – which have notoriously plagued the country – decreased thanks to community organization and firearms training within the Boer community.
As South Africa teeters on the brink of collapse, the idea of creating safe havens for Afrikaners has become more attractive than ever. Cultural survival is key for the Afrikaner community as emigration would lead to the eradication of their 370-year-old culture. AfriForum, a local organization, has identified towns, cities, and regions throughout the country where large numbers of Afrikaners already reside. The goal is to turn these areas into “anchor communities” where they can live securely and maintain a strong cultural identity.
AfriForum’s strategy involves creating resilient communities that the government has no choice but to recognize as legitimate. Despite facing a massive responsibility to ensure the safety and survival of the Afrikaner community, these groups are determined to emerge victorious.
**As the battle between chaos and order unfolds, Afrikaners are banding together to protect their legacy and preserve their history in the face of crime-fueled destruction.**
