ALIFREYS DAUGHTER ILLED
IN .CAR CRASH, BOTSWANA
The death of the Allfreys first child
phinh (born Josephine Shand Allfrey)
last Sunday in a car accident in Bet-
!swana, Africa, was telephoned 'from
Botswana on Monday.
The sudden blow-out of .a frqnt
tyre caused her Peugeot station wagon
to swerve off the road and overturn,.
Phina, hurled out of the front passen-
Sget seat and crushed under the car,
died half an hour afterwards without
regaining consciousness. .The driver '
andthe children in the back seat (in-
cluding Phina's son Stephen Simmance)
were uninjured.
Our daughter's,ashes are being'
brought back. in May by Colonel Edmund
Dowling to the homeland of her'deso-
Iste parents.

RICHMOND FEEDER ROAD,Castle Bruce
We have received-from a corres-
pondent who unfortunately did not
sign his name a letter complaining
about the condition of this feeder
road, Inquiries have led us .to con-
clude' that this road, expected once
to be Complete in 3 months, now in
its. seventh month, may take another
six months to complete.,.Tt appears
that over 1 mile of graded road -is
exposed to the weather without a
single grain of tarish; the nearby
farmers crops have'been damaged and
they will not have the use of the
road in the coming months.
Out correspondent, whose letter
we are unable to print,, ends: Is.
this the way we Po into Independence?
Is this the trend of our development?

THA, STTPPLIT-S CONTROL ACT
/ Serious reservations on the use-
fulness.of,such an Act at .all at
this particular time (since it would
further discourage businessmen from
expanding their business to create
more jobs so .critical for Dominica)
- were expressed by DAIC Gen.Sec. Mr.
Parry Bellot in an address to stu-
dents of the DAWU Trade Union School.
He said that certain provisions of
the Act appeared to be against some
fundamental rights and freedoms as
provided in the Dominica constitut-
ion.

THE DOMINICAN EXODUS AND EXILES ABROAD


It is common knowledge that the number of Dominicans leaving the state to
settle elsewhere is rising sharply. At the same time Dominicans abroad are
deeply concerned at what is happening in their island home. While he was. in
London last month, Lennox Honychurch (Freedom Party delegate who accompanied
Miss Charles to preliminary ta.ks on independence) took the opportunity to
discuss these issues with a number of Dominicans in the U.K. In this article
he reports on their hopes and fears. We trust that it will be of interest
both to Dominicans at home and abroad, for as the alternative government of
Dominica, the problems of Dominicans everywhere are of concern to us in The
Dominica Freedom Party.


"When I retire I wrnt to go back home,"the women said. "I have
worked hard saved money and I wont to build a house there." And that
is the ideal of many other Dominican exiles like this woman who left
St. Joseph in 1959. But that ideal is being shaken by the news they get
from home. The present political trends and the appalling economic
conditions are worrying our countrymen in the U.K. Judging fomrn letters
in the local press this is also of great concern to Dominicans in North
America. The letters they get from home cannot be too encouraging, for
those of us who still live in Dominican can see for ourselves the daily
disintigration of our lnnd. News travels fast among Dominicans in
Toronto, New York or London. They know something of what is going on
and it disturbs them.
But os Dominion is pushed at breakneck speed towards a hastily
contrived independence, it is only the most apprized Dominicans who are
able to keep track of these developments. Amendments and further amend-
ments have been made to the original draft constitution about which most
Dominicons are unaware. With just about six months to go to the independ-
ence date named by the government, the leaders themselves have no gunren-
tee that the mass of official red tape both here and in London will be
sorted out in time for November 2nd. 1977. It seems highly unlikely. So
almost six months before the date, we who live here do not know how we
stand. How much more confusing it is then for Dominicans abroad.
The Eastern Caribbean High Commiscion in London estimates that
there are some 15,000 Dominicans and their children in Britain. Taking
into account those in Canada and the U.B.A., the number of exiles rises
above 30,000. This estimate shows that the number of Dominicans abroad
equals almost half of the present resident population of the island
itself. This is an alarming state for any country to be in, especially
one on the threshold of independence. What makes it worse are that the
numbers are increasing daily as more and more Dominicans escape from
their homeland. And we know that it is not only employment which is
causing this but the overall mood of uncertainty in this island now.
Close to 1000 passports were issued in Dominica between January
1st and March 30th this year. The Canadian and U.S. embassies in
Bridgetown,Barbados are alarmed at the number of Dominicans seeking
visas to settle in their countries. Most are Dominicans we nan
ill-afford to lose for many are professional or skilled poeple. By
losing such people we are left with only a skeleton staff to run not
merely an expanding government bureaucratic machine but also the very
basic services of any civilized society. The exodus increases as
independence draws nearer. At a time when we should be bracing ourselves
to meet the challenges of independence our most valuable citizens are
deserting our shores. Even my most biased reader will have to admit
that something is radically wrong within this country to be causing
this continuing high level of immigration.
One minister of government has been reported as saying how-
ever that this exodus is "a damn good thing."- The argument used
was basically shortsighted (as usual): "The more so-called brains
we lose, the easier it will be to lead the people how we want."
He apparently prefers a population of sheep which can be used and
abused at' will. The danger is that even if a new government comes
to power with the best intentions for effecting change, the society
itself will lack the type of citizens most able to assist that new
government with its enlightened programme.


_I _~ i




-2-


How do Dominicans abroad react to this dilemma? Basically
they love their land. But can it provide them with the life
style and opportunities which they could get elsewhere? Obviously
this is not so, but many would remain in Dominica or return to
the island despite these things, if they could be assured of
. secure future, however simple it mey be. Many people feel
that at the present time Dominica lacks even that basic security
which encourages citizens of a country to have hope for the future.
I was: glad to have the chance to question Dominicans in
the U.K. about these hopes and fears. I received hospitality
in homes which they have laboured so hard to ima1ke comfortable and
in which they take such pride. Most have been away for between
10 and 20 years, some for even longer. They have worked and saved
industriously. Many own the -houses in which they live, as is the
ideal of most West Indians in the'U.K. Their children have been
well educated. There are some problems of course but there is
security. Even so, I sensed that home for them does not mean a
cold street in London, Bradford, Leeds or Birmingham. Home means
Dominica. And this is why independence and the present state of
affairs in the island concerns them so.

CITIZEi SHIP
Citizenship is the immedicto concern of Dominicans in the
U.K. It apeoaro to be of concern to Dominican.l in Canade and
the U.S. also. The Commissioier for the Esntern Caribbean in
London, Dr. Claudius Thomas, received only one copy of the first
draft constitution for the information of Dominicans there. He
held a meeting earlier this year to acquaint them with the issues.
The meeting was dominated by a debate on citizenship, and finally
the whole issue of independence became so heated that the meeting
ended in confusion.
One Dominican was getting his daughter to type out the
whole draft so thet he could have a copy, but since it had been
amended in early March she abandoned her task. Most Dominicans
there have United Kingdom passports by now and feared that they
would have to forfeit them for Dominican ones. I was able to
clarify the issue, as the original draft constitution is not clear
enough on that point. They are concerned ,bout the whole typic
of citizenship because from their own point of view it determines
their own future status and that of their children born in the
land where their parents settled. Full clarification must be
made to Dominicansr, abroad by government if this whole citizenship
issue is not going to blow up into o chaotic mes .. I suggest
G.I.S. send duplicated letters on the subject to as many of these
Dominicans as possible. Without this we will enter independence
while most of our countrymen still arc uncertain about their legal
position as citizens of this state.
Although provisions have been made for dual citizenship in
the redrafted section of the future constitution, we must remember
that this does not take into account the regulations in other
countries as far as dual citizenship is concerned. How can government
guarantee that Britain, Canada or the U.S. for instance will permit
citizens of an independent Dominica to also hold citizenship papero
of those countries. Up to now we have heard of no negotionstions
by the Dominice government with the authorities in those countries
on this matter. Just another example of this present governments
"tou chaud tou flam" attitude on this whole independence issue,
We know that the hope of many Dnminicans abroad is to use their
savings to buy a piece of land in Dominica if they do not already have
a lot,and to build a comfortable house for the future. Many hope to
return to enjoy the fruits of their labour. By living abroad they have
accustomed themselves to certain systems of living. One of these is
the system of true democratic government; the free right of citizens
to express ideas and live under a parliamentary democracy. In short
they hope for security of government. As one men told me, "I cannot
return if in a few years I am going to find myself living under an
oppressive system and with no means of escape or of taking out my
belongings." These are not foreigners speaking, these are Dominicans'
Thor-fore DTominicsnrs everywhere ,t tond by the freedom of your land.
