S" VIBRANT -flEEDOM PARTY 1 MEET NG
Imagine, only a fpw.days before Carnival, yet the cross-
roads @f tagon vibrated, iiith the words of Freedom Party speakers*
We ourselves d@ not attend all DFP Meetings; yet we felt impelled
to be there, to hear thie Dominican returned from Britain speak his
ptce; and because we thought it would be a significant occasion.
This it certainly turned out to be ending.shortly before midnight.
Lennox was called to the mike by Rupert Sorhaindochairman.
He gave a verbatim account of the House of Lords debate on Dominican
independence, read the horrifying assumption of Dominica's alleged
"unworthiness to be tourist resort" from Fieldings Guide Book 1978 -
wave of terror, drug trade, social climate Inten*@. Lennox said the
Premier ought to have corrected Fieldings earlier slam at Dominica.
He also spoke of political calypsoes banned from Radio D.B.S,
Next speaker was Alvin Armantrading, who urged Dominicans to wake
up to what was happening particularly the y6ong and take the
responsibility of choosing a good government.
Speaker of the evening, Ashworth Elwin, reminded his listeners
that hard-earned money from Britain was keeping the State going.
He had felt much worried after reading ths proposed Dominica con-
stiaution, and saw his M.P. Ted Rowlands. He had discovered that
Britain was dead against dual nationality, a factor written into
the new Dominica constitution; what they would happen to those who
had Dominican or British passports and wished to come home? He
had walked around Roseau observing the life lied there at present
&nd wandered in the country, which was absorbingly beautiful. He
had found, a people riddled with fear and suspicion; a people who
doubted their own judgment. Instead of humility, he found arrogance;
and instead of joy only make-believe.
Mr. Elwin, Chairman of the Dominica Democratic Association in
Britain, spoke briefly and very seriously. We hope his query will
be followed up.
Next came Pat Stevens, who announced that his Marigot consti-
tuents had publicly urged him to join the Freedom Party when the
matter was put before them, last Sunday. "Among my godfathers," he
added, were Lennox Honychurch and Rupaot Lance.- with a Seventh Day
Minister and the Editor of the New Chronicle standing by. "I'm
afraid that this is not very good news for the Premier," he said
to great applause. Referring to the ghastly recent debate in the
House of Ass., he said Miss Charles spoke for 5 hours, he spoke for
1..5 hr. & 26 secs., and it took government 6 weeks to say nothing.
Reminding listeners that Barbados did not say "yoh tout c'est meme"
(they're all the same) he said Dominican's spines seemed to be made
of soft candle. This week bananas would not be collected at Fond
Cole; Ministers were Dominica's largest expert. fis remarks caused
tremendous laughter and applause. Mr. Bernard Nicholas said "I
want a Dominica that I can be proud of. He spoke on the economics
of independence. "No Dominica Govt. gave you adult suffrage. No
Dcaiica Gove-nment can take it away from you." (Concl. page 6.)

We have been saying that this will
be a peaceful and happy Carnival.
Since then, Government declared a
censorship-on the Calypso contes-
tants; they replied by farming their
own association, getting sponsors
to help them in a competition, and
are tonight holding their finals.
We are in no doubt that Govern-
ments censure is because most of the
calypsoes, and certainly the best
ones, are not in favour of the rul-
ing party. They have kept those
lyrics off the air. It remain,? to
be seen who will be the victors.
In the meanwhile, all sorts Pf
carnival queen and princess compet-
itions have been going on; young
Paula Lsrocque won the Teen Age 9on__
nest; she is a student at Goodwill

is adjudged "Miss Carnival Loubiere";
there have been contests at Laudat,
