The South African Farmer Attacks are violent crimes committed against farmers in South Africa that involve robbery, torture, murder and rape. 

From the 2010 - 2014 period there were between 480 - 640 murders annually. This number has risen in the 2015 - 2019 period to 540 - 740 murders each year. 

The number of innocent lives lost to these radical attacks is continuing to rise at a rapid rate, with more and more farmers fearing for their lives, along with their friends and families. 

Many families have had to move away to other countries to flee what is now an inevitable fate. 

Despite all of this, there is little to none media coverage. No one is talking about how these farmers can no longer live in their own homes without fear of being tortured. No media outlets are displaying how they can no longer walk the streets with jewellery on without being held at knife or gun point. There is no coverage in the news of how many are dying each and every day to these attacks. 

It is heartbreaking to see how worried people I know are about their friends and family back home in South Africa. How when they hang up the phone, it might be the last time they talk to them. How every morning they could wake up to the news of a death of a beloved friend; of the murder and rape of a family member. 

These mass murders can not be allowed to continue. Change and justice must be demanded. We as a community, as a nation and as ones who live on this planet can not allow innocent people to be murdered every single day. 

Stand up, use your voice. Demand Change. Demand Justice. #savesouthafricasfarmers
