Date and time

Ron Weissenberg

Orania – Whitewash, white elephant or white what?

 Orania- An independent democratic state within South Africa, or an all-white enclave of Afrikaner Calvinism and nationalism?
With some Constitutional interpretation and serious use of colour on this patina of possibility , could this model of self-determination be a contender for our citizenship?

11.30-12.30 Saturday 11/10/14
