Due to the security and high risks involved in this visit, it is the intention to not compromise positions, identities of areas or farmers or their names and all information is retained as confidential. There has been a huge response to the visit and numerous written requests to meet with the visitors from Israel. The overwhelming positive response received has resulted in the team not been able to get to see everyone that wanted to meet. And for this reason the group have extended their stay in South Africa to mid-November and will attempt to compromise by doing group booking in an area/s, possibly in Cape Town and or Pretoria. This is still to be prepared and then confirmed.
All interested parties who made contact for information have been notified of this extension and will permit them preferential invitation to attend the planned meetings free of charge. There will also be additional visits starting from mid January 2020.
Good progress is been made regarding the collection and exchange of essential information in respect to a few of the topics discussed, as follows;
Safety, security and livestock security.
Prevention of farm attacks and methods to prepare for such atrocities.
Land Expropriation and mining.
Food Security and increasing costs.
Reduction of profits to the farmer.
Failings in Government that includes infrastructure’s.
Kibbutz style group farming and communal agricultural communities.
Farmers questions and concerns remain the same and requests for help is most sought after. The team is helping wherever they can, however long term solutions are the priority.
The visitors are been graciously received and are amazed at the fabulous hospitality they are receiving. They say thank you to everyone who is making their visit enjoyable.
