New Batavia is a state proposed by a small but vocal minority of Boer secessionists in South Africa. The Boers in South Africa, descendants of the early Batavian settlers, were defeated by the English (see Boerwoer) and incorporated into the Dominion of South Africa. The city of Pretoria is generally imagined as the future capital of this state. The means by which the Boers should fight for New Batavia are however disputed among their different leaders, a few prefering sabotaging diamond mines, plane hijackings and other such activities, while others prefer attempting to peacefully gain more political power for the Boers. The majority are not in favour of this movement.
