the way to unity, this new crack in

The people of this region still have
their dream of real nationhood. In
spite of fragmentation engineered by
our politicians, we still reach out
to each other. That's worth preserv-
ing and, before the crack widens,we
should try to patch things up.
The great difficulty is that those
Governments which condemn Grenada' s
revolution can-do most to widen.-t2h,

with Grenada. Through those institu-

relations.. Sabotage
In fact, action has already been
taken. Attempts were made to sabotage
Grenada's economy. The East Caribbean
Currency Authority was instructednot
to send money to Grenada to replace
worn out notes withdrawn from circu-
lation. International pressures caus-
ed those instructions to be Withdrawn,
but this attack left scars on inter-
island relationships. '
Then, there's the judicial system.
Traditionally, the small islands of

a couple of things to get straight,

want Mr.Gairy back in power.It is
unthinkable that, considering his
record of brutal adminis:tration,he
would have their sympathy or assis-
tance to regain his dictatorship.
What these Heads of Goverrnent are
concerned over is the fact that MR.
Gairy was removed by force of a~ima.
But, it must be realized that
Grenada's revolution was not spark-
ed by power-hungry men but was the
result of tne fact that Mr.Gairy
blocked all avenues for peaceful
change. Performance of the zew Gov-
ernment gives ample proof of this,
,and, unless we wish to condemn
blindly, tho least we can do .is

There are lessons in the Grenada
revolution for both Westindian peo-
ple and Governments. Lessons of the
results of oppression and the price
a people must pay for lack of vigi-
lance. But, the time for vigilance
has not passed. And, more than
ever, we need movement towards a
broad based unity in which we can
better -guard our freedoms.
Let's heal the breach niow.
