WHO are ‘Our People’ or the ‘Capelanders’?
International law and treaties generally accept any 'group of people' who by common belief and characteristics, as a common unit, are united by any one of the following commonalities: ethnicity, language, culture, religion or history.
Although no international treaty defines the term “people” for the purposes of self-determination, it is generally accepted that this classification entails a subjective element, such as a common belief by members of the group that they share the same characteristics and beliefs and thus form a common unit, as well as an objective element, such as common racial background, culture, ethnicity, religion, language, and history.

Historically speaking, these same people have been the majority peoples in OUR region (The Cape) for almost two and a half centuries and before the formation of South Africa in 1910 (most family lines still do) and where almost 70% of the Cape speak either Afrikaans or English as their first language (Afrikaans being the predominant Language) clearly proving that OUR people are the common majority peoples in the Cape.
Let’s do an ‘OUR people’ test:
If you can check any of the following boxes below you are a Capelander, regardless of where you are currently residing:
I am currently legally and permanently residing in the Cape, and was a legal resident of the Cape before May 10, 1994,
I am a direct child or grandchild of a person that was a legal resident in the Cape before May 10, 1994;
I am a descendant of either one or more of the following groups:
- the region’s First Nations (Khoi or San), and I’m not a member of any predominantly Ba’Ntu Tribe (e.g. Xhosa),
- slaves and other indentured persons who arrived in the Cape region before 18 January 1806,
- European settlers who arrived in the Cape Region before May 10, 1994 OR who has, or whose family have resided in Southern Africa for at least 20 years.
For the last 8 years The ULA has been working diligently towards the creation of a FREE, Independent and Prosperous United Cape States for all Capelanders, regardless of race, religion or political views. The ULA common-sense process is completely legal both domestically and internationally.
