Europe could be overrun with white South Africans who 'have the right to return'
Europe could be overrun by white South Africans who believe they have "the right to return" to Europe, according to a shocking petition.It calls on the European Commission (EC) to allow all white South Africans to obtain automatic European citizenship.
The petition has already gained more than 1,000 supporters in just half a day.
Rodrigo de Campos, who started the campaign, is gaining support for his belief that the "white South African population currently faces ethnic cleansing and persecutions" at the hands of the ruling ANC government, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party and "various individual anti-white aggressors".
He also says: "Over 4000 white farmers have been brutally murdered, often including torture and rape and mutilation."
An increasing number of supporters believe the solution to this is for white South African's - and white Zimbabweans and Namibians - to be allowed to "return" to whatever nation the majority of their ancestors are from - which in most cases is the Netherlands or the UK.
The petition compares white South Africans to Jews being allowed citizenship in Israel.
It says: "Based on the Israeli government's policy of allowing all Jews the right to return to Israel, we believe it is not only advisable but morally obligatory that Europe should allow all white South Africans the right to return."
Currently South Africans, of any colour, applying for British Citizenship have to tick all the boxes people from any other country outside the EU have to.
This includes having lived in the UK for at least five years before applying - usually on a work visa.Susan Mulder, who signed the petition from Cape Town, said: "My life and the lives of my children are at risk daily.
"We love SA but are no longer welcome here in the country our ancestors built.
"We have no option but to ask for your help."
Another supporter of the petition is Marischka Davies, living in Liverpool. She said: "I am a naturalised British citizen yet my mom is stuck on her own in South Africa.
"She should be growing old with her daughter and granddaughter.
"She has been attacked with an AK47 held to her head and is alone and traumatised. She deserves to be free from living in fear."
While Matty de Bruyn, in Cape Town, simply said: "There is no hope for the white man in South Africa."
The UK's South African population comes in at just over half a million and unlike South Africa itself, most South Africans in the UK are not ethnically black, but white.
According to census date, more than 800,000 white South Africans moved overseas - mainly to Britain, Australia and New Zealand - between 1991 and 2001. express
