The World

The breakaway white-supremacist wing of South Africa’s Afrikaners has fragmented further with the formation of a neo-fascist movement to fight for a white homeland. The Afrikaner Liberation Movement was founded in Pretoria by three disaffected leaders and about 100 former members of Eugene Terre Blanche’s paramilitary Afrikaner Resistance Movement. The founders, who recently failed to oust Terre Blanche, said they will “liberate the Afrikaner nation from foreign domination through the creation of a separate homeland.” The group is the latest in a string of far-right organizations that oppose President Pieter W. Botha’s limited reforms of apartheid.
