COMMONWEALTH OF DOMINICA ,
WE ARE NOW INDEPENDENT ...
Glorious weather blessed Independence
.Day. The sun blazed, as children who
had to stand under it from 8 am to
1 pm discovered. That was at the
morning parade, after the exchange
of flags; when Princess Margaret ar-
rived, the British National Anthem
was not then played. The town was
decora+2d with sparkling pennants,
but no new Dominica flags hung from
private homes in Roseau area. And,
according to a report in the Brit-
ish Press, the Princess said "I didn't
see one f1ag recognising Britain."
According to this report "ISLAND
SNUB FOR HRH" she was "a bit peeved
last night by the non-welcome she got
in the poyerty-wracked island of Dom-
inica. 'They could have shown more
enthusiasm,' she told an aide."
Princess Margaret's arrival and
90 minute drive from the airport was
announced over the radio; and she
was not seen-off on her departure by
any Minister at Melville Hall. The
same newspaper also contains a'rath-
er horrible piece called "Island of
Fear", which we will not reproduce,
The people were in an inquisitive
mood on the whole. Thousands jammed
into Independence City (Windsor Pk)
for the previous House of Assembly
night outdoor meeting; DLP support-
ers took chairs destined for offic-
ial guests. But, like Clochemerle,
"Dominica is a place where protocol
is absolutely.embryonic". And at the
lowering of the Uhicn Jack, several
people had tears in their eyes:others

INDEPENDENCE ADDRESS CF WELCOME TO THE UK DELEGATION BY THE LEADER
OF THE OPPOSITION, HON.M.E.CHARLES
Addressing the Speaker, the Opposition Leader spoke of her great pleas-
ure in welcoming the Queents Representative, i H.R.H.Princess Margaret,
and af-cer a few felicitois sentences asked H.R.H. to take back to H.M.
the Queen "our than'r and' ur regrets that the necessities and realit-
ies of life in this islaizi merited a change of relac.i~onship with Her
Majesty; a change however which we know will not dim-hy one iota the
warm feeling of affection that Dominicans bear to Her Majesty and to
members of the Royal Family." She went on to say that perhaps a more
meaningful relationship with H.M.- the Queen as Head of the British Com-
monwealth might-. ensue, adding: "In this era when the duties of the Head
of State are not carried out-enttirely on his own initiative and perhaps
not as impr ceably correctly as one would wish it is as well that he is
not spen to act as -the Queen's -representative" -
hiss Charles next welcomed Under-Sec,. of State Mr.Rowlands and his
delegation; then the British Government, Represent&tive for the Associa-
ted State-s and the members of his' staff.
The many 'gifts that we have had in the -paet. from the U~nited Kingdom
next c :ae under review: not only financial assistance .and the Indepe ndenc
gift o1 $53 million and promise of more to come, but "these intangibles
which .e are unable to pack in a suitcase as we set out en this journey
on an uncharted sea with -our compass and tiller in our own hands."
Examining those intangible gifts and the use we must make of than in the
future, she spoke first of "a lesson in. Democracy".- To begin -with' our
UK friends have given us the Westminster model of Government'. We adapted
it to our circumstances and left out'the Upper Chamzber. But did we not
leave out more than that...? Miss Charl*Pn mplete control which
the House of Commons Speaker maintains over its members and"his im-
partiality and complete lack of'-bias equalled only by his strict adher-
ence to the rule that he must not contribute or take part in the debate,"
'saying that our copy of that model was a travesty, and that the manner
"in which we have rejected this'part of the lesson in democracy is a
cause for-deep Sorrow." She doubted that we would keep to the Westmin-
ster pattern after Irnependence. "A pity, Mr. Speaker'."
Agzin using the model of Westminster, the Leader asled "when are we
going to learn that Bills even though introduced for the good of the
public must not.be kept secret from the members of the public? Public
shoiild have the right to make their feelings felt on any passage of law
*."the three readirsgs' should not all take place within five minutes
if 'each .other and invariably-at the same sitting ef the House. Such
sittings should be held' regularly at known intervals and the minority
should never, be deprived of the right to express their views. ,The
House of Assembly is -not a mere rubber stamp far the indiscriminate use
of .Cabinet in securing majority support for measures whiai have not been
ful.3 and fairly discussed both In the House and -outside...by the Gener-
al Public." The O .Leader'spoke of the emphasis on consultation by
the opposing factions -in th". House of Assembly during constitutional
talks. Surely consultat i n cannot imply the imparting of a decision
signed sealed and deliv-red -io the other side?"
cspakin, of the weight of Public Opinion, she said. "The political
leaders in England heed the comments of the press but it is true though
sad, that criticism.iU the press seems merely to-urge us to continue
and. pursue relentlessly whatever road that we are travelling, in a man-
nei which -shows utter contempt for the persons who have found fault
constructively and have re.son to have so found "ault'.
Last under the' giet head of Democracy, the Opp.Leader told the
Speaker, was the democratic right to free alectilns. (concluded overleaf)

Ir; FT R: '~ ~"AR
pOret e (b) STHE TAR Fr.dekv, November 10,..78
She said"Mr. Speaker... You. have heard us time and time again say-that
our new Constitution promises elections every five years; but can elec-
tions be free and fair,-Mr. Speaker, when electorallists are unfairly
compiled?" Breaches of the electoral laws, she added, had been brought
to the attention of the highestt authority over 9 months in 14 letters of
complaint, without the courtesy of a reply and with little redress. Ap-
plications to see -the Governor on this were brush? 1 aside; persons con-
victed of the crime of refusing to register electcrs are maintained at
the same post so that it is easy for them to continue depriving would-be
voters of.their right.to register.
"We boast that we have Preedom of Speech but let us examine the
reality of the situation. In a country where the only radio is owned and
operated by the Government and no Opposition voice are permitted on
that most effective media; can' one really,say that we believe in F-E.aedom
of Speech? When time and again Ministers ef Government and some offic-
ials are permitted to abuse persons opocsed tc Government without the
right being given to such persons to exytlain their side...? When cffic-
ers of the radio state categorically that they will not have any news
items on the radio about members of the Opposition, and they are allowed
to carry on with this policy without let or hindrance are we really
adhering to the Human Right of Freedom of Speech?
"The Right to Dissent is well understood and accepted in the United
Kingdom. But here in Dominica, every criticism is regarded almost like
an act of treason... We will never build a nation on one point of view
only at least not in the democratic way that is known to us in the
Western World.. '
"Mr. Speaker, in the United Kingdom political patronage is net un-
known but there it is played murder known rules. We have learned the
lesson without the rules... It has been publicly and openly announced
that persons who do not belong to the ruling party win not be able to
obtain public housing, public service jobs and there is a not toc subtle
pressure' against members of the business community who do not flaunt the
party badge. If there is one single facet that will keep the nation c'v-
ided it is this brazen use of power for the purpose of punishing persons
who do not adhere to the party..."
"@ur counterparts in the United Kingdom have tried by example to give
us lessons in diplomacy. These we have net made any attempt to absorb.
Courtesy in the political field in unknown; respect for the ether man's
feelings is a virtue best forgotten and if one can ride roughshod over
all and sundry who do not agree with one, that is the order of the day.
The principle being who is not with you is against you."
"Another lesson that our United Kingdqm aid donors have attempted. to
help:us to learn is that bf pxieriites... It is not a lesson that .' ^
learns easily from hard experience; when one has grown in the erroneous
ways it becomes extra difficult to correct..."
-The Opp.Leader spoke next of Unity in matters of National Importance;
touching on the Right to Education far each, including adults whe lt.ve
missed out or forgotten what they have learned a literacy campaign is
an urgent and early must. She then spoke of Freedom from Fear; people
must not grow afraid to talk out and to obtain tLeir right. She went on:
..."Let us reflectt for a while that the glitter cf Independence is not
all; the lights, the flags, the decorations, the parties and most impor-
-tant the exhilarating presence of distinguished guest, these are but
fleeting. By Monday next week the realities will be vith us. Independence
we will then know,- is not something we-have to hbout and sing about; but
something that we have to live with; something we have to work for; and
above all it will uot be for the few but it will be everybody's business."
