The upgrading of the ‘White cross monument’ (Witkruis Monument) and ceremony in memory of all the South African farmers who have been brutally murdered on their farms will take place on Saturday 19 September 2020, in Ysterberg, outside Polokwane, in the Limpopo province of South Africa.
The attacks on farms is most often accompanied by extreme violence, rape and torture and is not ‘just crime’ or ‘easy targets’ as suggested by some groups and organisations. In many instances farmers and or their families are brutally murdered just for a cell phone or less.
