These web pages are meant to make and keep contact with Afrikaners and our cultural associates
who realize the threat of the implosion of South Africa
resulting from ineptocratic, communistic driven methods of government and
squandering of valuable land and raw materials to China,
which will also result in the destruction of the Afrikaner people.
Independence and sovereignty over our own land is the only solution to prevent this from happening.
The time has become urgent to finalise a demarcated area and prepare for Afrikaner self-determination where we can exercise political control over our own people while safeguarding our Western social, cultural and economic pursuits, keeping strict consideration of International Legal Requirements as well as of the South African Constitution.
I have extracted and translated these pages from the book by Cor Ehlers:-
" 'n Heimat vir Afrikaners: Die Tiende Provinsie",, eminent Afrikaner researcher
and specialist in Afrikaner Self-determination, and chairman of
OASE (Onafhanklike Afrikaner-Selfbeskikkings-Ekspedisie).
Unfortunately I have no translated copy available.
"Thank you Cor, for Your friendship and patience while faithfully sharing your time and knowledge with me over the years as my mentor."
Briefly we talk about:
The OASE suggested area map, which in itself does not mean much other than to see if your property falls within the area. But let's look again at the most important demarcation guidelines that affect the boundaries of an area.
One of the most important requirements is the historical connection of the people of the area.
Then there is the guideline of correlation between area and number of people.
Also, that minorities within the area should be given full protection.
Minimum disruption for both sides must be considered.
A majority in numbers is not a requirement but it does make sense.
It is also important to consider the way the land has been acquired.
We look at research by Solidarity where 30 Afrikaner growth points by 2031 have been identified and see that 80% of the growth points are already part of the proposed area.
The link to Google the area can be found here, as well as the link to download Cor Ehlers' book "'n Heimat vir Afrikaners: die Tiende Provinsie" in PDF format.
The OASE suggested area Map:
Why are the boundaries not just a straight line?
International requirements have a strong influence that must be taken into account when drawing boundaries. We'll discuss some of them briefly again before we get to the link that goes to the Google platform where the map is displayed.
An interesting phenomenon across borders: somewhere between the Netherlands and Germany, the border line runs straight through a building. I am not going to discuss the implications of this, it just shows what can be done legally.
A peoples' claim to territorial self-determination is stronger over territory where they enjoyed independence with international recognition in their history, i.e. sovereignty (Brilmayer 2000: 283).
The territory that OASE refers to as demarcated territory for Afrikaner self-determination falls fully within the boundaries of the former sovereign Boer Republics of the ZAR and Orange Free State, where Afrikaners enjoyed full independence with international recognition in the past.
A general guideline for the demarcation of territory for self-determination is that there should be a correlation between the claimed land area as a percentage of the state's total land area on the one hand, and the population numbers of the demarcated area as a percentage of the state's total population on the other hand.
This means that the whole area must be less than 10% of the area of the whole of South Africa.
Basic human rights for all those living in the proposed territory and the rights of minorities must be clearly protected and enshrined in a constitution.
The international community expects that the claim for self-determination would bring about the least disruption for both parties when territorial self-determination would realize.
Therefore some boundary lines will follow existing roads or rivers where this is suitable.
In terms of International Principles, majority occupation in an area is not a prerequisite for Self-Determination, but permanent occupation is a certain criterion. By demarcating territory where Afrikaners have lived for generations and where they historically have the strongest claim within the framework of International Law, hope is created for Afrikaners on a sustainable future in South Africa.
Afrikaners' claim to OASE's demarcated area is provable on the basis of historical facts, reliable literature, legal treaties, Afrikaner tombs, monuments, historical buildings, cultural heritage sites, and so on. This is also the area where the majority of Afrikaners are concentrated today.
It is important to take note of the ways in which peoples acquired territory in their history to exercise self-determination under International Law. As far as Afrikaners' claim to territory is concerned, there are mainly four international legal grounds in question, namely:
** Territory that Afrikaners legally conquered from Mzilikazi and his Matabeles during the nineteenth century;
** Territory that Afrikaners - with certain reservations - acquired from black tribes or peoples in South Africa during a legal session during the 19th century;
** Territory over which Afrikaners have enjoyed sovereignty in the past;
** Territory where Afrikaners today live concentrated as an ethnic majority, or where they can form such a majority in the foreseeable future so that they can exercise effective control over the area on the basis of democratic justice.
In recent research by the Solidarity Research Institute (SRI), a projection is given according to current movement statistics on the demographic distribution of Afrikaners in SA by 2031. This shows that 74% of Afrikaners will be concentrated in 30 growth points, and a further 20% will be able to reach a growth point within two hours.
80% of these growth points are within, or are border towns of the area that OASE has already demarcated (proposed) and in which, according to the projection, 1,275,000 Afrikaners will live by 2031.
This does not include the Afrikaners who live in the towns of the area outside the growth points, as well as the 500,000 who live in areas that are close to the OASE area boundary.
Also, the numbers of English-speaking people or members of the colored community who live in the area and who have shown their satisfaction with an Afrikaner government by giving a positive voice were also not taken into account.
The demarcated area is about the size of Austria, where approximately 1.5 million Afrikaners (about 50%) already live within a contiguous territory. It has been demarcated in a way to form Afrikaner majority where the best chances for territorial self-determination can take place according to International Legal Requirements.
"Borders" are in any case part of compulsory negotiations with the government of the state.
The book by Cor Ehlers 'n Heimat vir Afrikaners: die Tiende Provinsie can be downloaded here in PDF format.
By way of explanation, the Google map of the area is indicated with flag points instead of lines. The OASE suggested area can be Googled here.
The feasibility and sustainability of self-determination for a nation on independent territory has been very expertly researched and published.
This new book on Afrikaner Self-determination is really recommended for those who see Self-determination as a necessity but are not fully aware of the SA Constitution or International Legal Requirements.

Cor mentions how his daughter Marieke earned her "LLM in International Law with International Relations" degree with Self-determination as the theme under the heading "Contemporary issues in the law of external self-determination and secession beyond decolonization and disilution ".
She received her degree with distinction from the University of Kent.
To better understand the International Legal principles regarding Afrikaner self-determination, it is advisable to see how she came to the positive conclusion in her dessertation that Afrikaners can indeed obtain External Self-determination.
