Afrikaners had to unite and mobilise themselves as a "threatened society" two Afrikaner organisations said on Thursday.
South Africa had taken a turn onto a dangerous road, the Pro-Afrikaans Action Group (Praag), and the Afrikaner Alliance said in a joint statement on the "shoot the boer" controversy.
The country was being governed as if there had been no negotiated settlement ahead of the 1994 elections, and as if a solution had been forced on the "white Afrikaner nation" in particular.
"South Africa has become a political and economic quagmire with the letter and spirit of the political deal long forgotten," they said.
More than 3 300 white farmers had been brutally and "even ritually" murdered.
"Since the aforementioned murders were committed by youths, it is suspected with good reason that there is a direct link between the murders and the ANC war song 'Kill the farmers, kill the Boers'," they said. - Sapa
