South African Afrikaner pupils attend a lesson with their teacher on April 17, 2013 in Orania. Orania is a South Africa's only 'purely' white town founded in the Northern Cape province in 1991 by Afrikaners, for Afrikaners opposed to the post-apartheid 'rainbow nation', just after the release of Nelson Mandela. One thousand people live in Orania, and they try to be as self sufficient as possible. They have their own money, as well as their own flag. Orania's population grows at nine percent a year. It attracts Afrikaners who feel to be left out in the new South Africa, and who are scared of the country's high crime rates. The little town is protected by article 235 of South Africa's constitution, which guarantees the right of self determination. But residents here are thinking big - their next goal, the creation of an Afrikaner Republic. AFP PHOTO / STEPHANE DE SAKUTIN (Photo credit should read STEPHANE DE SAKUTIN/AFP/Getty Images)
