On Thursday TLU SA announced its #SOS-campaign, which is aimed at urging foreign countries to take a stand against expropriation of land without compensation.
This forms part of its ‘fightback’ campaign, which includes an international campaign against changing the Constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation.
TLU SA president Louis Meintjes said the ANC had, in the run-up to the elections, made many promises regarding land expropriation to win votes. He said supporters of changing the Constitution for expropriation of land without compensation were now waiting impatiently to see how the government would implement the exercise.
“With this campaign we will send a distress signal to foreign countries, asking them to take a stand and warn the South African government not to proceed with this short-sighted plan,” Meintjes said.
