London Riots: Violence spreads to all corners of capital

Picture source:

I’m posting the latest news about this incident, as there are between 500,000 to 1,000 000 South Africans permanently residing in London. One of them happens to be my eldest son.

The violence has spread from Tottenham to Enfield, north London, were about 200 youths have gone on the rampage, smashing windows on the high street, setting fire to cars and looting stores. In south London, police in Brixton came under a missile attack after they tried to stop an altercation between youths. 
More news can be viewed here.

Numerous reports have already indicated that there seems to have been a very well organised campaign over social media to add fuel to the flames. My guess is that social media (eg. Twitter, Facebook, etc.) have become the new tools of modern warfare – to provoke, instigate, and incite the masses. It is incidents like these that are bringing the world closer to martial law, one step at a time - based on the principles of Problem-Reaction-Solution.

Obviously the mindset of the Black African savage (and I’m not saying all Black Africans are savages) have been utilized to its max in the “Problem-Reaction” part of the equation. The equation needed a multiethnic, multicultural environment to function. The final “Solution” part will automatically come from the rest of the world, who will beg their governments for tighter control, and more rules of enslavement. The real solution is to build high fences between people of different cultures and nationalities, but that will never happen!

Incidentally, some videos of the incident have been removed from YouTube, as there content violated YouTube's terms of service. The following is a recent amateur video uploaded to YouTube by AlJazeera, a well-known independent broadcaster.

@Tia, do you have comms with your son and is he safe?

@ Macaw

Yes he is safe, (Thanks for asking!) I spoke to him this morning. He is luckily not in northern London, but many of his mates (ex SA) are working in the catering business in the general area. Apparently it is total chaos!

Glad to hear he is ok. When are you off to the UK?

@ Macaw

You wont believe how many people have asked me that question! I’ve travelled all over the country since March this year saying goodbye to family and friends, yet I’m still here! I met some people this weekend who thought I’d already come back… Quite embarrassing! My plans have been delayed for a number of reasons, one of them being a feeling of reluctance whether I’m doing the right thing, or not. I’m living out of boxes and suitcases at the moment. The only thing I haven’t packed yet is my PC. Still looking for a cash buyer for my car, a Renault Cleo with full service record, new tyres, just serviced, excellent condition 117000 k’s on the clock. I think when that goes it will be a one-way trip for me to the airport :-)

Come on TIA... Stay a while longer. We need as many men with the "right" perspective and a steady hand as we can get. What is coming is coming to the whole world. It is just coming to SA first... And I would much rather be up against a bunch of unwashed jungle bunnies than the SAS.

Stick around - life is about to get INTERESTING!!!

I also say to you pommie libby's, eat kak, it's about time you get a lesson in the great plague of darkest africa. I read on Daily Maverick that a person wrote an article, guess who the majority of the plunderer's and pillager's are, wait for it, you guessed correctly, BLACK! Read it. Whoopie Doo. Prime minister is not sleeping so well tonight, also cut his vacation short, ag shame, sorry for you. I also read that racism is and has been on an all time high in the UK and they still screw us white's here in SA and go on about Appartheid, I sincerely hopy they now understand why we had appartheid, the libby,s will never ever admit it. I think much more poo is going to fly in the UK over the next few months, and the UK will never be the same again, but TIA you know that. I also have several old friends over there. I will get updates from them, soon.

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
