Jack Hindon Verkenners

Who are we?

The Jack Hindon Scouts is a London posting of the Verkennersbeweging van Suid-Afrika, who supports and calls for Boere-Afrikaner self-determination.

We hold the opinion that the current constitutional order in South Africa is destined to fail. It basically enables and ensures the inept ANC to govern South Africa ad infinitum, whose populist and racist National Democratic Revolution policies are not only economically unsustainable, but also inciting and fuelling racial hatred, especially against minorities who celebrate their distinct cultural identity and heritage.

The Jack Hindon Scouts subsequently maintain that the only solution for a durable peace in South Africa would be for government to back down on its efforts of social engineering (via draconian discriminatory policies like Black Economic Empowerment, Affirmative Action and Land Reform) a so-called egalitarian Rainbow society - which is only beneficial to top ANC cadres - and allow the Boer people to determine their own future in peaceful co-existence with all other ethnic groups in South Africa.

The Jack Hindon Scouts further rejects any notion of a "Rainbow Nation", not only because the ANC clearly doesn't believe in it either, but mainly because it is a pipe dream with no founding in reality.

One only needs to look at the United Kingdom and its devolution of power to the Northern Irish, Scottish and Welsh assemblies in Belfast, Edinburgh and Cardiff respectively to realise that engineering a common purpose and common identity for distinct and diverse ethnic groups is not as easy as coining a good catchphrase.

In South Africa we are well aware of the consequences of the actions of do-gooders who utilised government's powers of coercion and compulsion in order to engineer a society they deemed more acceptable. Now, how is it that we find ourselves today at the opposite side of the very same junction?

If government policies of FORCED segregation are evil, who decided that government policies of FORCED integration are good and the right way to go?

Surely a more Laissez-Faire approach of live and let live and "All peoples have the right to self-determination", in line with The United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, sounds much more digestible.

Apart from the odd protest, the Jack Hindon Scouts mainly focus on celebrating the Afrikaner culture also here in the United Kingdom. This includes arranging Cantus evenings and events commemorating historical Boer figures like Danie Theron, CR de Wet, Jopie Fourie, Koos de la Rey, etc. as well as Boer victories like the Battle of Majuba. We are also involved in arranging the annual Day of the Vow religious festival.

Suksesvolle begin

Die Jack Hindon Verkenners het op Saterdag 6 Desember 2008 hul eerste suksesvolle aksie geloods.

Below is the Media Announcement of the first peaceful protest on 6 December 2008.


Chingford, United Kingdom

On Saturday morning, 6 December 2008, members of the Jack Hindon Scouts pledged solidarity with the passive resistance movement in South Africa which has as aim to prevent the Greater Tshwane Metropolitan Council from renaming South Africa’s capital from Pretoria to Tshwane.

With the name change, a number of street names have also been identified for renaming from Afrikaner historical figures and settings to “struggle cadres”.

The Jack Hindon Scouts (in Afrikaans “Jack Hindon Verkenners”, is a cultural movement of the Afrikaner people in South Africa who wish to ensure that the language and traditions of the Afrikaner people are upheld wherever Afrikaners may find themselves) have kept with the passive resistance that started in Pretoria and tied a red ribbon to the street sign Pretoria Road in Chingford.

When asked what the aim of the occasion was, the chairman of the Jack Hindon Scouts, Francois Keulder, said: “We wish to highlight the injustice done unto our culture and heritage, not only in South Africa but also to the international community. We believe that by doing so we may be able to start a debate that may aid in eliminating the emotionally charged route that the Tshwane Metropolitan Council has embarked on.”

Other members of the group were all in favour of appealing to the South African Government to rather, in these challenging economic times, spend the millions of rands that such name changes will amount to on social upliftment programmes and service delivery, which seems to have been side lined recently.

One member commented that South Africa’s neighbour, Zimbabwe, could be aided with the money which could see an enormous amount of relief on Zimbabwe’s infrastructure and South Africa’s resources.
