Concentration camps by the British empire

Map of the British concentration camps in which tens of thousands Boer women, and children in South Africa during the Anglo Boer Wars.   They often said it was only 24000 but there are more than 39000 of Boer women and children died in this hell camps.

THERE ARE MORE THAN 39000 CHILDREN AND WOMEN THAT DIED DURING THIS WARS IN BRITISH CONCENTRATION CAMPS.

The media is sometimes quick to act with their own numbers as well.   Today the main stream media houses are the same with ‘facts’.

In 1901, Lord Alfred Milner was “lamenting” the “fact that the death rate among young children in the [Boer War concentration] camps was still not dropping. ‘The theory that, all the weakly children being dead, the rate would fall off is not so far borne out by the facts,’ Milner wrote. ‘The strong ones must be dying now and they will all be dead by the spring of 1903.'” On October 14, 1901 the cornerstone for the Boer War monument was laid at Province House.

Somebodoy wrote about it down as a South African War.   It was not a South African war, because there was NO south Africa in 1900.  Government South Africa also wanted to change it from Anglo Boer Wars to South African Wars.

Dit is sowaar dat liberales probeer ons Boere volk se geskiedenis wegskryf en verander, maar dit sal nie verander nie, hulle doen dit al vir dekades.  Niemand kan dit wegredeneer dat die twee Boere republieke onafhanklikheid gekry en internasionaal erken is.   Die waarheid word altyd verdraai, maar daardie waarheid gaan hierdie liberales en kommuniste nog duur te staan kom en hul inhaal.

The person further mentioned about the British atrocities in the camps, which led to the deaths of 10 per cent of the Afrikaner population (22,000 of them children) from disease and starvation. Some 115, 000 were imprisoned in these camps. The British did not keep record or numbers on how many Black South African workers interned in the camps also died, but estimates suggest around 20,000 out of the approximately 100,000 Blacks in the camps were worked to death.

Yves Engler describes the role of Canadian troops in the war, and the mythologizing of Canada’s military prowess in this article for Rabble:

In Another Kind of Justice: Canadian Military Law from Confederation to Somalia, Chris Madsen points out that, “Canadian troops became intimately involved in the nastier aspects of the South African war.”

Whole columns of troops participated in search, expel and burn missions. Looting was common. One Canadian soldier wrote home, “as fast as we come up the country…we loot the farms.”

Another wrote, “I tell you there is some fun in it. We ride up to a house and commandeer anything you set your eyes on. We are living pretty well now.”

There are also numerous documented instances of Canadian troops raping and killing innocent civilians.

The article mentioned about ‘apartheid’, but apartheid was implemented by Shepstone and Rhodes, in 1894 and 1854.  The British annexed all the areas of the Khoisan, Griqwas and different black groups, not only the two Boer republics.  The British empire also annexed the minerals of the whole country in 1902 and it was legislated in London like the Union of South Africa.

Blankes het nie apartheid geskep in Suid-Afrika nie, die Britse regering het dit voor 1900 reeds in plek gehad.  Dus, hoe kon ons dit geskep het, as swart en khoian reeds aparte gebiede gehad het.    Hulle bly vandag, na 1994 steeds apart van mekaar.  Daar is oor die 8840 tradisionele leiers wat dit bewys en ook al die grondeise, die CPA en Trustgebiede wat na 1994 ontstaan het.

Richtersveld 1847

Richtersveld – KHOISAN AND CPA

Ironies hoe heelwat van ons blankes uit Suid-Afrika vlug as gevolg van onveilige toestande, misdaad, korrupsie en diskriminasie (swart bemagtiging en regstellende aksie), verwelkom al hierdie lande die immigrasie inkomstes, kennis en geleerdheid wat ons volkslede bied.  Heelwat lande sluit ooreenkomste met die ANC en hul rassistiese wetgewings teen ons.   Is dit om ons volk as kultuur, taal, tradisies en geskiedenis, totaal en al uitmekaar te laat spat en ophou bestaan?

Q

Between 1898 and 1902 London launched a vicious war against the Boer. With Cecil Rhodes’ Imperial South African Association promoting anti-Boer sentiment in this country, some 7,400 Canadians fought to strengthen Britain’s position in southern Africa.

The war was devastating for the Boers. As part of a scorched-earth campaign the British-led forces burned their crops and homesteads and poisoned their wells. About 200,000 Boer were rounded up and sent to concentration camps. Twenty-eight thousand (mostly children) died of disease, starvation and exposure in these camps.

In Another Kind of Justice: Canadian Military Law from Confederation to Somalia, Chris Madsen points out that, “Canadian troops became intimately involved in the nastier aspects of the South African war.” Whole columns of troops participated in search, expel and burn missions. Looting was common. One Canadian soldier wrote home, “as fast as we come up the country…we loot the farms.” Another wrote, “I tell you there is some fun in it. We ride up to a house and commandeer anything you set your eyes on. We are living pretty well now.” There are also numerous documented instances of Canadian troops raping and killing innocent civilians.

As with the Boer, the war was devastating for many Africans. Over 100,000 Blacks were held in concentration camps but the British failed to keep a tally of their deaths so it’s not known how many died of disease or starvation. Some estimate that as many as 20,000 Africans were worked to death in camps during the war.

Unlike the Boer, the plight of black South Africans didn’t improve much after the war. In Painting the Map Red: Canada and the South African War, 1899-1902, Carman Miller notes, “Although imperialists had made much of the Boer maltreatment of the Blacks, the British did little after the war to remedy their injustices.” In fact, the war reinforced white/British dominance over the region’s Indigenous population.
