In this video we see Ernst Roets deliver an opening speech at the premiere of the Disrupted Land Documentary film. He explains how “Land reform is not just some government policy, it has become a weapon of the ruling party and is used as a revolutionary and political strategy”. The documentary investigates the question of how white farmers obtained land in South Africa and exposes the extensive failure of the South African government’s land reform initiatives.

The film deals with the controversial history of land in South Africa and views it is a matter that has been distorted for political gain by politicians and land reform activists.
