Lauren Southern is a Canadian far-right political activist who has immersed herself into the world of politics having run as a Libertarian Party candidate in the Canadian federal election and covers a wide variety of topics working independently on her youtube channel. In her latest release farmlands she focuses on a situation in South Africa in which “white people” are in danger of violence and suppression from “black people”. In the intro of the film she states that she was sent material which claimed that there was a White Genocide taking place. Southern claims that as a journalist she never takes anything at face value and will always second guess and question it all, hence her desire to explore the issue a little deeper and discover if these claims of a potential race war are based on fact.
