This region has for tens of thousands of years belonged to the aboriginal Khoi- and San tribes, who since 1652 have lived in peace with the early settlers from Europe and slaves. This region is called the Cape and consists primarily of the former Cape Colony, which is approximately the current south-western provinces of South Africa. A small area called TransOranje is also included, since this corridor consists of more than 50% Afrikaans speakers and links the large northern Afrikaans concentration to the Cape.
The current “Coloured” and “White” populations in this region are the direct descendants of the First
Nations and early European settlers. The following maps (generated from the 2011 SA census)
immediately and clearly show how substantially different the Cape is from the rest of SA.
After more than a decade of research and planning, the ULA has recently been formed to act as the
umbrella organisation for coordinating the peaceful secession of the Cape from SA. The ULA is a non-
political civil rights organization focused solely on the peaceful establishment of an independent country
approximately comprising the borders of the original Cape Colony and including TransOranje. Through its alliance organisations, the ULA has a total membership numbering in the hundreds of thousands of
persons from various racial groups.
The ULA is essentially the result of the so called “Coloured” and “White” population groups of SA joining
together after realising we want to share more than a language, ancestry and history. We also want to
share a bright, prosperous and free future. Our goal is therefore to create a safe haven for these
marginalized minorities, thereby not only ensuring their safety but also providing an environment for them to thrive and enjoy their basic human rights without domination and oppression. At the same time this solution will not infringe on the rights of the Bantu majority in the remainder of SA, since they will continue to have full access to their historical lands and have the freedom to implement whatever policies they see fit.
It should be noted that there are still significant minority populations outside of the Cape and TransOranje Regions. But a migration of these people to the Cape is already underway and undoubtedly this will rapidly accelerate if independence is attained. The TransOranje corridor will be crucial if the northern minority populations need to be evacuated during a crisis.
Re-establishing Cape independence would once and for all solve the racial issues in SA. It represents a
fair and historically accurate division of SA that also reflects the reality of present-day demographics. It is
the only peaceful long-term solution still available, since all other avenues have been exhausted.
