Smoke rises over the Langeberg

Police managed to drive protesters into Nkqubela on Wednesday after violent clashes. PHOTO: DALEEN FOUCHÉ DALEEN FOUCHÉ Fire, rocks and rubber bullets characterised clashes between protesters and the police last week in the Langeberg. Protests erupted in Robertson early on Tuesday and spilled over to the rest of the Langeberg during the week. The protesters, who identified themselves as farm workers, demanded an increase in their daily wage to R150. The current minimum wage for farm workers of R70 a day is being renegotiated. Colonel John Alexander, station commander of the Robertson Police Station, said protests started with a small group at local farms on Monday and hit the town of Robertson on Tuesday. Protesters burned tyres and rubble and blocked the entrance to Robertson at the

traffic circle, with several smaller protests taking place in and around Robertson. On Wednesday, clashes between protesters and police turned violent and Alexander said five police officers were slightly injured. A photographer from Die Burger and a freelance journalist were also slightly injured on Wednesday. Most shops in Robertson and Ashton closed their doors on Wednesday. Captain SC Smith, station commander of the Ashton Police Station, said the group of protesters blocking the R317 marched to several farms on Tuesday, gathering farm workers to march with them. He said there were cases of intimidation, but no reports of violence. On Wednesday protesters from Zolani blocked the R60 and the same group turned violent on Thursday. Smith said a vineyard and storage facility close to Zolani were burned and four people were arrested for public violence

and arson. According to Smith, there was no further protest action in Ashton and surrounding areas on Friday or the weekend. Alexander said that by Friday, all was “quiet” in Robertson. On Monday, protesters once again attempted to close down the traffic circle, but police foiled their attempt. Captain Bertus Conradie, station commander of the Bonnievale Police, said protests started in Bonnievale on Wednesday among about 350 people. By Friday the group had grown to about 1 000 people. Protesters marched to farms in the Bonnievale area to hand farmers a memorandum stating that farmers acknowledge that farm workers are unhappy about wages. According to Conradie, six people were arrested for public violence.vDespite unrest in the Langeberg, not a single matriculant in the area missed an exam paper. Aubrey Michaels,

IBB manager for the Western Cape Department of Education in the Winelands District Municipality, said there was a 100% attendance of matriculants last week. Michaels was at Nkqubela schools on Wednesday and reported that schools continued as normal. Michaels said a “handful” of pupils from farm areas could not attend school because of road closures. Johan Els, principal of Bonnievale High School, said it is only with the help of the community and the police that the school had a 100% attendance rate last week. According to Els, three matric students who live on farms were transported in a police van to write their matric exams. Although several residents claimed to have seen busloads of protesters from outside the Langeberg, none of these reports could be confirmed. . Also see pages 2 and 3.

News - Nuus

Boere hou stakings dop CHARLOTTE LESCH Onrustigheid onder boere in die WesKaap weens stakings oor loongeskille, sleep steeds voort. Plaaswerkers op De Doorns het twee weke gelede begin staak nadat ’n daaglikse loon van R150 en beter werkstoestande geëis is. Dié staking het verlede week na ander dorpe, veral in die Boland, uitgekring. Onrus het die afgelope twee weke in 14 gebiede oor die provinsie uitgebreek, sê provinsiale polisie woordvoerder, lt.kol. André Traut. Volgens Traut is twee mense noodlottig gewond in die afgelope arbeidsgeweld. Stakings het wéér vroeg gisteroggend op Robertson uitgebreek, ongeag ’n ooreenkoms met werkersorganisasies om stakings vir die volgende twee weke op te skort, terwyl die onderhandelingsproses oor moontlike verhogings van daglone plaasvind. Die toneel met brandende bande is egter vinnig opgeklaar, sê ’n plaaslike inwoner, Marlise Meyer. Palesa Mokomele, woordvoerder vir die minister van landbou, bosbou en vissery, Tina Joemat-Pettersson, kon nie bevestig of ’n loonverhoging van R80 oorweeg word nie. Sy sê wel ’n komitee oor werksomstandighede sal die minister van arbeid, Mildred Oliphant, raadpleeg oor loonvasstelling in die landbousektor. Volgens die departement, kan die uitslag nog enige kant toe swaai. “Samesprekings sal vandeesweek Donderdag plaasvind.” Die Kommissie vir Versoening, Bemiddeling en Arbitrasie (CCMA) sal as bemiddelaar optree. Of die boere die verhogings kan bekostig, hang van die individu af, sê Johan Montgomery, ’n streeksverteenwoordiger van Agri Wes-Kaap. “Jaarlikse salarisverhogings word gewoonlik gegee gebaseer op ’n suksesvolle oes en inflasiekoers. Die posvlak en verantwoordelikhede van die werknemer kom ook ter sprake.” Volgens Porchia Adams, woordvoerder vir Agri Wes-Kaap, is salarisverhogings ’n ooreenkoms tussen die produsent en sy werknemer. “Produsente moet volgens wetgewing by die sektorale vasstelling hou en die minimumloon as basis gebruik.” Intussen is Agri Wes-Kaap besig om inligting onder boere in te samel om die om-

vang van die skade te bepaal. Die totale skade kon teen druktyd nog nie bevestig word nie. Carl Opperman, die uitvoerende hoof van Agri Wes-Kaap, hou vol dat produsente en plaaswerkers direk en per plaas hul individuele arbeidsgeskille moet bespreek en werkbare oplossings vind. “Agri Wes-Kaap is absoluut verbind tot die normalisering van ons landbougebiede en doen ’n ernstige beroep op die regering om wet en orde te handhaaf. Die taktiek van intimidasie, geweld en vrees is ’n duidelike aanduiding van die manier waarop vakbondleiers te werk gaan,” sê Opperman. Pieter du Toit, die besturende direkteur van die Du Toit-Agrigroep, het skade van R30 miljoen bevestig. Hy doen ’n beroep op die regering om die landbougemeenskap te beskerm met “doeltreffende polisie- en sekuriteitsmagte”. Die Du Toit-groep het intussen self sekuriteit op hul plase in die omgewing van Ceres aangestel. Die organisasie, die Koalisie vir Plaaswerker Verteenwoordigers – wat onder meer Women on Farms Project, Sikhula Sonke, Mawubuye en Cosatu insluit – sê hulle gee die regering tot 4 Desember om te voldoen aan die plaaswerkers se eis van R150 per dag se loonverhogings. “As hulle dit nie doen nie, sal 4 Desember die versterking van protesaksie aanskou,” sê die organisasie se woordvoerder, Billy Xabela. Die Wes-Kaap se rampbestuur sê hulle bly op ’n gereedheidsgrondslag. Ceres, Op die Berg (Ceres), Citrusdal, Bonnievale, Montagu, Ashton en Prince Alfred Hamlet word veral dopgehou en deurlopende koördinering met plaaslike owerhede vind plaas. Sprake van stakings in Montagu, Bonnievale en Prince Alfred Hamlet vir vandeesweek doen die ronde.

Costs of protest mount DALEEN FOUCHÉ The week-long protest that saw the closure of several shops last week, left a trail of destruction in the Langeberg. One farm outside Robertson lost three hectares of vineyards. The fire was started on Wednesday at about 13:00. The farm, which is a black empowerment farm, is situated next to Nkqubela. Martha Fielies, a director of the farm who also works on the farm as a supervisor, says she is devastated by the loss. “I feel hurt.” She says 66% of the farm Several small fires is owned by workers. The rest of the shares are owned by Robertson Wine Cellar, which also acts as a mentor to the farm directorate. Corne Swart, accountant at Robertson Wine Cellar, says the idea is that the workers will eventually own the entire farm. Swart says that besides the vineyard, irrigation equipment and the compost heap were also destroyed. “This is wrong – the farm is not for us but for our children,” says Fielies. She says the farm does not have the money to cover all that has been lost. “We are one nation – why are they doing this to us?” On the same day, a storage facility that belongs to Langeberg Ashton Foods, which is situated next to Nkqubela, was also burned down. Nassos Martalas, chief operations officer (CEO) of Langeberg Ashton Foods, says he can not yet report the extent of the damage in terms of rands, but says the loss is a “big blow” for the company. He says 2 000 bins, which the company use for the packing of fruit, were destroyed. “This is an unfortunate loss before the start of the season.” He says he is very concerned about the widespread protest action and road closures because the fruit industry cannot afford further labour problems. He says they work with perishable food that

were started in vineyards next to Zolani on Thursday. rots if left too long. Martalas says that if Langeberg Ashton Foods misses the opportunity to produce their final product, they miss the opportunity to export their product for an entire year. He explains that 85% of their products is meant for export. On Wednesday several fires were started in the fields next to Droëheuwel in Robertson. Colonel John Alexander, station commander for the Robertson police, says several small fires were started in vineyards, but no big losses, besides the cases already mentioned, were reported. Captain Bertus Conradie, station commander at the Bonnievale Police Station, says besides a few small fires that were brought under control, there was no serious damage to property in Bonnievale. Production at the Parmalat Factory in Bonnievale continued despite the absence of many workers last week. Hansie Wolfaardt, Parmalat plant manager in Bonnievale and Ladismith, says workers were intimidated to stay away from work. He, however, says Parmalat was able to continue work and had no financial losses due to produce not being processed. On Monday, however, most businesses in Bonnievale reported that 100% employees had shown up for work.

Wesgro focuses on tourism trade The Western Cape Destination Marketing, Investment and Trade Promotion Agency (Wesgro), hosted a tourism networking session, bringing together provincial stake holders and emerging and established entrepreneurs.

Irma Daniëls, oud-inwoner en onderwyser van Langeberg Sekondêre Skool, is verlede week oorlede na ’n massiewe beroerte.

Geliefde juffrou sterf aan beroerte

Hosted at the Protea Hotel – Breakwater Lodge in the V&A Waterfront, the informative session focused on successful tourism brand development. The speakers’ programme included Solly Moeng, senior consultant of Don Valley Brand and Jacyntha Maclennan, head of Wesgro Intelligence Unit. “Domestic tourism from the Western Cape accounted for 34,7% of total tourist arrivals to the region, indicating importance of local tourism to the economy and can be considered to be a market that could be developed in the future to further stimulate the appetite for do-

mestic travel and tourism,” Maclennan said. She also reported that the in the first quarter of 2012, tourist arrivals to the Western Cape grew by 12,3% quarter-on-quarter from 2011 to reach 426,348 tourist arrivals making up 18,8% of total South African tourist arrivals for that period. Special guests Vernon Adams and Wajdi Abrahams, producers of Business at Heart show on Heart 104.9 FM, were also present. Wadji said: “The Western Cape is the gateway into Africa and we need to invite our SMME’s to share their knowledge and stats to gain an idea of what’s happening on the ground levels within the provinces tourism.” For more on how to participate in the tourism networking sessions, please contact Linda Mase on linda@wesgro.co.za or 021 487 4819. For more information, please contact Roshin Schmidt, 021 487 8693 or roshin@wesgro.co.za

ANNELDA GROOTBOOM ’n Ma, rolmodel en Samaritaan vir honderde; ’n persoon wat uitgereik het na ander en gehelp het waar sy kon. Dit is hoe mense vir Irma Daniëls beskryf. Daniëls, ’n onderwyseres wat 26 jaar skoolgehou het by Langeberg Sekondêre Skool, het verlede Woensdag by die skool ’n massiewe beroerte gekry, waarna sy inderhaas met ambulanspersoneel na die Robertson-hospitaal geneem is en dadelik oorgeplaas is na Medi-Clinic in Worcester. Sy was in ’n koma en het Donderdagmiddag afgesterwe. Sy is gebore op 29 Desember 1961 in Robertson as die tweede oudste kind van agt kinders. Nadat sy haar skoolopleiding voltooi het by Esselen Park Hoërskool in Worcester, het sy ook haar onderwysersdiploma by Pentech voltooi in 1985. Volgens haar man, Lionel Daniëls, was sy vrou gesond maar net “baie moeg”. Wat hy kan onthou was die Woensdagoggend net voor hy oppad was McGregor toe het hy haar nog gegroet met ’n soen “soos in die fliek Titanic”. “Haar liefde, omgee, sin vir humor, family keeper en besonderse menswees sal ek vir altyd koester,” sê Daniëls. Sy laat haar man, kinders, drie broers en drie susters agter. ’n Roudiens word Woensdagaand om 19:00 gehou in die skoolsaal van Langeberg Sekondêr en die begrafnisdiens is Saterdag om 10:00 by die huis in Watsoniastraat 10 en 11:00 by Langeberg Skoolsaal.

ALMAL DRA ’N HOED: Hoërskool Robertson het die afgelope Vrydag, 9 November, ’n Hoede- en Siwwiedag gehou om fondse in te samel vir Die Burger se Kersfonds. Leerlinge kon gewone klere aantrek en ’n prettige hoed opsit. Hulle het dit baie geniet om só geld in te samel vir ander wat meer behoeftig is as hulle. Die bedrag ingesamel beloop R3 019,50 wat oorbetaal word aan die Kersfonds. Hier op die foto verskyn ’n groepie leerlinge wat “belasting” op hul klere en hoede betaal het ten bate van Die Burger se Kersfonds. FOTO: LYNETTE WESSELS

Ope brief aan ons gemeenskap – saamwerk die enigste opsie

Moenie vrees nie Ná die afgelope week se onluste en soms geweldadige ontmoetings tussen betogers en polisie, het baie mense onlangs hul vrees vir die situasie uitgedruk. Mense wat op plase woon het die afgelope week in vrees gewag vir betogers om hul grond te betree om hul griewe aan te meld of om ’n memorandum te oorhandig. Hulle het in vrees gelewe vir hulle lewe, besittings en grond. Aan die ander kant leef die betogers in vrees vir honger ly en vrees hulle ’n gebrek aan te min kos en geld om die einde van die maand te haal. Vrees is een van die grootste dryfkragte van die moderne mens. Hoewel vrees hom dikwels vermom en vir ander lyk soos emosies van haat, verwyt of woede, is en bly die wortel van die onluste vrees. Vrees bly die grootste faktor wat gemeenskappe uit mekaar uit hou en nou selfs verder uit mekaar dryf. Ná die era van apartheid was die gemeenskaplike doel om een nasie te skep. Tog dryf vrees gemeenskappe steeds verder en verder uitmekaar uit. Vrees verhoed ’n mens om kreatief te kan dink en planne te maak om te oorleef. Kom ons oorkom ons vrese, kom ons reik mekaar die hand en bou saam aan ’n beter lewe vir almal.

Ons het drie opsies op die tafel. 1. Ons kan die pragtige vallei in twee skeur en elkeen kies ’n kant wat vir hom sal werk. Is dit juis nie waarvan ons weg wil beweeg nie! 2. Ons kan mekaar uit die vallei probeer jaag en in die proses als wat ons saam opgebou het, plat trap en verniel, en ’n dorre landskap agterlaat vir ons kinders met geen toekoms. 3. Of ons kan in harmonie saamwerk om die streek uit te bou tot een van die suksesverhale in die wêreld. Die plaaswerker-mosie het definitief ’n aar raak geboor. Daar is mense wat na hul werkers omsien as tweedehandse burgers. Dis onverskoonbaar en moet deur die sisteme van reg opgeneem word. Ironies genoeg, dit is ’n mosie wat deur die meeste boere ook ondersteun word. Was ons verras dat werkers van ons gemeenskap uit frustrasie en simpatie deelgeneem het? Onthou dit is ’n saak van die hart. Staan net ’n slag in hul skoene. Hoe moet hulle aan hul misnoeë en frustrasie uiting gee? Sy lewensomstandighede bly dag in en dag uit dieselfde. Sy woonbuurt lyk agterlik weens diensleweringsprobleme, met politieke beloftes wat net nie meer haalbaar is nie. So ’n persoon gryp na enige grashalm wat lyk of dit hul omstandighede kan verbeter. Sou ons almal nie? Daar is ook die sensasie-jagters wat nie kan wag vir wat volgende gaan gebeur nie – watter impak het jou aksies op die gemeenskap gehad? Wat maak jou beter as die een wat agter die optog aanloop? Albei soek ak-

sie, jammerlik, asseblief ons dorp is nie ’n fliek nie, hier bly mense met drome. Ons moet regtig besin oor wat beteken die woord “gemeenskap”. Daar woon 18 000 mense in ons vallei. Moet ons almal onder een kam skeer as net 500 deelneem aan die optog? Daar is baie waardering vir die feit dat in Bonnievale van die optogleiers gevra het die kinders moet skool toe gaan en niemand moet die dorp beskadig nie. Hoërskool Bonnievale het met 103% matriekleerlinge vanoggend eksamen geskryf. Van die naburige skool se leerlinge het hier kom skryf! Dan is daar ’n alombekende gesegde “You cannot right a wrong with a wrong”. En hier rig ek dit weer aan die gemeenskapsleiers. Wat sê ons vir ons kinders? Is dit hoe ons grootmense probleme uitstryk? Is reg en geregtigheid net van toepassing solank dit my nie negatief beïnvloed nie? Kan ons elke boer in die gemeenskap onder dieselfde kam skeer? Weet ons regtig wat hulle vir die hele gemeenskap doen? Moet ons nie besef dat as jy iemand opsweep, die gevolge na jou kant toe sal kom nie? Het ons nie gesien wat in ander dorpe gebeur nie, of wou ons regtig hê dit moes hier ook gebeur? Wil ons regtig poog om van vooraf ons gemeenskap te polariseer? Kan ons bekostig om ons reeds sukkelende infrastruktuur nog verder op te breek? Dit was vir my en my werker ’n hartseer en skaam gesig hoe die strate in Happy Valley bemors was. Ons kinders kom uit die skool, en dit is wat hulle sien! Is ons as gemeenskap nie volwasse ge-

noeg sodat ons saam om ’n tafel kan gesels en dinge uitpraat nie. Is dit makliker om ’n opinie oor iemand te fel as wat dit is om met hom te praat? Is ons dan so dom dat ons toelaat dat ons gemeenskap as speelbal gebruik word? En hier wil ek sommer die polisie (ons skeidsregters) namens almal bedank wat hierdie plofbare situasie puik hanteer het en verhoed het dat die minimum eiendomme en persone skade opgedoen het. Wie van ons het in die week wat die chaos voorafgegaan het, met die ander persoon gaan praat om te kyk of daar nie ’n meer dienlike oplossing op die tafel is nie? Albei kante trek liewer laer. En dit is ’n groot hartseer vir ons gemeenskap, as dit alles oor is, lê die besluit nog steeds nie by ons nie! Vanmiddag stap die skoolhoof saam met sy Happy Valley-skoolkinders huis toe om te verseker hule kom veilig tuis. So selfs in die donker dae kan elkeen van julle rondom julle kyk, en die wonderwerke sien gebeur. Wat is die wonderwerk? Mense – bruin, wit en swart – wat besig is om opsie drie ’n werklikheid te maak. Ek dink die geringe skade hier is deels dat ons as gemeenskap al ’n ver pad gestap het om dit te verwesenlik. Diegene van die gemeenskap wat hard gewerk het om die gemoedere in plek te hou – wie sal ooit weet wat jul kalmerende insette vir ons as gemeenskap beteken het? Dankie aan almal van julle wat die pad vorentoe oop sien. Laat julle die lig wees sodat ander ook kan sien, om saam te werk is al uitweg.

DA requested a few times to release the army to help and he ignored all requests! I hope everyone injured is okay and I take my hat off to all journalists and police who risked their lives to protect us and to report on what is going on. ) Charmaine Little: Baie dankie aan die SAPS – ek dink jul doen uitstekende werk! ) Lisa van Zyl-Jones: So freaky that all this happened in our special little “dorpie”. Saddening. ) Cornelia Wolfaardt: Dankie aan ons polisie helde en heldinne wat so hard werk om ons te beskerm.

Dié gedrag onsedelik Is daar nog ’n wet wat ons beskerm teen onsedelike gedrag in die openbaar? Klaarblyklik is dit deesdae heeltemal normaal om kinders en tieners in hulle onderklere op straat te sien loop. Ek verwys spesifiek na die groepe kinders wat naweke van en na die dorp se publieke swembad stap. Ek is ’n vrou en ma van ’n dogtertjie, en dring aan op my reg om ten minste in my residensiële woongebied, kerk- en skole-gebied te kan stap of ry sonder om in opgeskote, reeds ontwikkelde, tieners en kinders wat in nat onderklere op straat loop, blootgestel te word. Dit het niks te doen met waar hulle vandaan kom of waarheen hulle op pad is nie. Ek kan net nie dink dat dit wettig is om in jou onderklere op straat te loop nie. Wat het geword van respek vir jou eie liggaam en respek vir jou medemens? Watter voorbeeld stel hulle en hoe leer jy die jonger geslag van respek as hulle so onnodig blootgestel word? Wel, ek het nog respek vir myself en my medemens. Ek is moeg daarvan om in mense met nat onderklere vas te kyk op straat en weier om my waardestelsel te verlaag of geïntimideer te word hierdeur. Daar is ’n verskil tussen ’n onderbroek, slaapbroek, sportbra en swembroek. Koop asseblief vir julle swembroeke, of bly by die huis.

Rotary honours prominent resident Prominent Robertson resident, Willem Scott, was honoured with a prestigious Paul Harris Fellowship Award by the Breede River Winelands Rotary Club. The ceremony was conducted at the induction dinner of this year’s president, Gert Lubbe. Scott has been a Rotarian since the Club received its charter in 2005, and has served as both treasurer and club services director. Although the award was conferred primarily for Willem services within Rotary, it also recognises the extensive range of community tasks which he has voluntarily and quietly undertaken in Robertson, Montagu and McGregor. Without fanfare, Scott has spent many years helping to build up the status of the Robertson Museum (of which he is chairman) to the point where it is now recognised and supported by the provincial authorities

- a vital development which prevented the closure of this treasured aspect of the town’s heritage. He has also helped the McGregor Museum with its research into former resident George Payne (a composer and world-renowned expert on succulents), by burrowing through the archives of the University of Bloemfontein during several visits to the city. An acknowledged musicologist, Scott is chairperson of the Montagu Music Society, which ofScott fers a wide range of concerts throughout the year, and behind the scenes has helped a number of other musical endeavours and societies. A further contribution is his role as chairman of the Robertson Literary Society, founded in 1883 with the quirky name of the Adult Improvement Society, and still going strong under his leadership.

Beurs vir Bonnievale-leerling Lizaan Viljoen, matriekleerling van Hoërskool Bonnievale, het vanjaar die Goedverwacht Trust se studiebeurs ontvang. Dit behels ’n volledige beurs om van 2013 aan die Universiteit Stellenbosch te gaan studeer. Viljoen sal ’n BRek-graad aan die Universiteit van Stellenbosch volg. Meisies wat in 2013 aan Hoërskool Bonnievale matrikuleer en

van 2014 af in die wetenskappeof wiskunde-/rekeningkunderigtings wil gaan studeer, word genooi om die nodige aansoekvorms by Dirk Jordaan, ’n trustee van die Goedverwacht Trust, af te haal.

Last year on Youth Day as a Community Policing Forum Initiative, Jill Hogan, creator of the McGregor Alternative Technology Centre (Mat), was roped into doing something with the children of McGregor. At the same time, a local potter gave Hogan some clay and they decided to build a little house. This was the first attempt, but the children wanted to know when they were going to build the next one. So, inspired by the miniature village in Bourton on the Water in England, (www.theoldnewinn.co.uk/ model-village.html), it was decided to build a miniature cob cottage at Mat. Bruce Milne, an architect, drew up the plans and the children were taught how to build a house with natural materials. The children were asked what is the first thing you do when you build a house? They answered, “dig the foundations”. Hogan, however, explained that first you buy the land, which means you need money and a good job. For this you need an education, “so you have to learn and stay at school and become qualified”. Over many weeks, working each Saturday morning, the miniature house grew bit by bit. Hogan says it was interesting to see the children relax, open up and share many

issues. Hogan says that as a result of this exercise, one of the boys has decided to study to become a building inspector. Children were taught the various stages of building, including the foundations, stone footings, building up the walls, putting in the windows and doors. And plastering, preparing the grass and eventually the thatching of the roof.
