Committed to Afrikaner nationalism it is secessionist in its views, and its ultimate aim is to create an independent Boer or Afrikaner republic (often referred to as a Volkstaat or a Boerestaat) in some part of South Africa. In its heyday in the 1980s and 1990s, it was often used by the South Africa and international media as an example of a white supremacist group.
