The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword.


Every year from since 2016 Admin Management for Break The Silence About South Africa has asked page commentators, friends and supporters to Help the Cause By Writing Email Letters.

Every year the ruling South African - African National Congress (ANC) government must Sign Annual International Agreements and Treaties with organizations world-wide. The aim of this campaign is for International Trade and Treaty Organizations to apply pressure on the ruling ANC government.


"Being a farmer is a more dangerous occupation than a policeman in South Africa"



What we want is....a clause included in the International Agreements To Prevent and STOP Farm Attacks and Farm Murders in South Africa.

Part of the Agreement that South African government signs must include a Schedule (Clause) for Safety and Security of Farmers living in Rural regions of South Africa. The ruling government will be required to sign this agreement to be involved as signatory to the international agreement/s or NO Trade, No Deal.


Letters: Choose at least 6 names and write your email in English language.

If everyone can regularly write at least one (1) email letter to six (6) of the important organizations named in the list options which can be found in the links included and written in your own heartfelt words that the safety and protection of farmers in South Africa is essential.


For Example of who to write:

  • International Grains Council (IGC)

  • International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)

  • African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA)

  • Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR)

And Farmers Organization's we've not mentioned from around the world.
