United Nations anti-racial discrimination hearing condemns South Africa's race-based Job-Bar laws as 'similar to apartheid'
DescriptionThe United Nations committee on the Eradication of all Racist Discrimination's 70th hearing dealt with the seriously-faulty human rights issues in South Africa. SA government government-officials and NGO's representatives from the Afriforum and Solidarity trade union movement testified to the committee for three days (8, 9 and 10 August 2016, televised live on http://WebTV.Un.Org -) about their 'shadow report'. Various members of the UN committee members firmly condemned the current South African Job-hiring laws during their cross-questioning of the South African government representative, Justice Minister Jeffery, describing in their questions to him that they 'believed that the current Job-Rights laws were 'similar to apartheid' because the South African laws were based entirely, solely on racist criteria, not on whether people were poor or destitute. One committee representative said he believed that the south African government 'did not understand the true interpretation of affirmative action programmes and that the programme as it is being applied in South Africa 'cannot continue indefinitely'. He asked when the South African government was going to put a stop to it.

B) 9 August 2016 Consideration of South Africa - 90th Session of Committee on Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD)
The shadow report outlined in great detail the ruling #ANC's race-based laws barring minority-groups from the job-market. UN committee members examined the shadow report in great detail and asked questions from the SouthAfrican delegation which expressed committee members' dissatisfaction with the South african exclusively-race-based laws, the Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment Acts.
These were inter alia described as a 'new form of #racism' by some of the increasingly critical members of the UN Racial Equality committee at the two-day hearing at the Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on 8 and 9 August 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland. (SEE ABOVE LINKS TO VIDEOS WHICH WILL REMAIN ONLINE AT THE UN)
The hearing allowed the South african Government officials (they sent a 17-member delegation to Geneva for this purpose) to reply to some of the very critical questions from the committee on 8 and 9 August 2016.
The committee, representing 18 nations, closely examined and ofen very critically questioned delegates from the NGO groups and from the South African government about a 'shadow' report by the Solidariteit trade union movement and from the AfriForum civil rights group. Their shadow report - submitted a year earlier - described often very harrowing details of the many human-rights violations and hardships to families which were directly caused by the #Racist laws barring many skilled minority-members from working in specific jobs and areas due to the #SouthAfrican government's increasingly strict 'race-based' quota system. The committee heard that these racist criteria were made increasingly stringent each year causing hundreds of thousands of whites, coloureds and Indians to lose their income when they were fired to make way for black ANC-members (who often were far less qualified for the same jobs).
These more than 114 laws were introduced in South Africa under the ANC regime since 1994, after the end of apartheid, and has according to the shadow report by Afriforum/Solidarity already caused untold suffering amongst wage-earners among the three minority groups whose families often now are forced to live in horrific squalor in squatter camps because they are denied access to the job market under these strict quota systems.
Especially the country's tiny 3-million white minority is hard-hit by these quota systems as they are also at the same time, being denied any kind of food-aid or government-benefits because they are 'members of the previously advantaged community' and thus not entitled to survival-benefits despite their grinding poverty. These refusals by the ANC-regime to provide such poor white families with equal rights to access government benefits, were not carried out against the coloured- and Indian communities.. only the poor-whites are suffering from these refusals by government-agencies to help them survive.
Basically what the ANC-regime's inspectors reportedly are doing is y 'counting white, coloured and Indian faces' on the shop floors according to the 'national demographics' of the entire country - although there are many regional disparities which makes this an unfair system: for instance in KwaZulu Natal there are many Indian people; in the North Cape there are many more 'coloured (Khoi-San) and white Afrikaans-speaking people and almost no black people. The ANC-government reportedly also is continuously moving the goal posts towards more and more stringent measures to rapidly reduce the percentage of minority-workers who are still allowed to work in South Africa. The ANC government officials continuously claim that 'there are still far too many whites in top posts', for instance, right up to today.
The Solidarity and Afriforum representatives reportedly also received a warm welcome form committee members in Geneva - and were praised for bringing these 'new kinds of racism' to the attention of the committee, it was reported (view videos).
VIEW COMMITTEE HEARINGS:
(The comments by committee members and petitioners can be seen on the video footage of the UN commitee in Geneva now posted on the 9 August 2016 date of their 70th hearing at http://webtv.un.org/.)
Now a report ix expected to be drawn up by the the UN committee members and circulated amongst all its member-states. An advisory to the south african government will also be included in this report.
This is the first time that the ANC-regime has faced such a barrage of critical questions from the international community about the human-rights tragedy which is developing in the South African minority-communities due to these socalled 'Affirmative Action' and the 'Black Economic Empowerment' laws enacted under the ANC-regime since the end of apartheid from 1994. Most of these laws were drawn up by one ANC-government minister: Johnny de Lange.
