A MYSTERIOUS LAND POLICY by ANDROCLES
The present Government seems determined. to become the largest land-
owner in Dominica. So, too, is the Government of SovietiRussaia; and of
Poland; and of Red China in their respective countries.
Within the past twelve months or so, the Government has been engaged,
quietly, silently, in purchasing huge areas of land in various .districts'
of Dominica. This is part of a policy which has a number of arms with.
closely tied-up ramifications. It is bad enough when individuals& have
large portions of a nation's l&nd resources under their control and it
sometimes becomes necessary for a Government to step in. But
what when the Government itself is a large landowner? And particularly
this Government whose activities are so often orientated towards suppor-
ters?
For some incomprehensible reason, the disposal of Crown lands to pea-
sants has practically come to a standstill, From various parts of Domin-
ica come angry criticisms of the Government policy of withholding. sales
of Crown lands to the peasantry despite numerous applications lying in
Government files for many years. This is something new in Dominica, where
Crown lands have traditionally been sold to the peasantry without fuss.
Now that we hqve more roads, the less inclined is the Government towards
making Crown lands available for sale to the. peasants. This denial of
land is one: arnm of this strange, new policy.
Tied to this is another arm of policy which prevents people from
selling their lands to persons: from outside Dominica, though we all know
of many Dominicans in England, U.S.A. and other places owning real pro-
perty in those' countries. The Trevie Bruney case is an example of this
wicked policy Wioh has as its result Government acquisition at compar-
atively cheap prices of the lands of the people. In other words, the Gov-
ernment must increase while the people must decrease.
To third arm of this mysterious policy is; already becoming, clear,
As a principal' landowner, the Government, through the Minister-bosses,
will have a determining influence over the, lives of the people. We. have
aLready seen- recent examples of how favourites will be the ben eficiaries;
how lands will be re-sold at special prices to friends; while all manner
of difficulties are put in the way of ."enemies'" of the regime. In one
particular recent case, the Government has refunded part of the purchase
price of land sold several years ago to the buyer. The public of Dominica,
steeped in its insouciance and dwelling in its mental fo.l's paradise, is
blissfully unconcerned about these things.
It is not difficult, in the light of past performance, to see that the
Government's massive acquisition of land is intended for 'party political
ends. It calculates that, big landowner as it is; planning to be, the cit-
izen -- especially the peasantry -- will have-to support it in order to
have access: to land upon which to earn a livelihood. That independence, of
thought and attitude, so characteristic of the small landowner of Dominisa,
will therefore under such a policy gradually disappear. Previous Governments
over many generations sought to sell lands to the landless; this one seks
to acquire at cheap prices the lands of the people.
Talking. of lands of Dominica, many persons are indignant that the lands
of the Jacko Flats are being converted into :-.n expcrimz atal station. ...
+ + + + + + + + + +- + + These lands should in fact be a national
shrine where our Negres' MIarohs ancestors, under cover of the forests,
held out against those denying them their freedom. It was- in this 'rea
that Chief Jacko, leader of rebellious slaves, had his headquarters; fought
many a battle against the pursuers of the -Runaways until .he was felled.
by Government troops on 12th July, 1814. The Jocko Flats should therefore
be holy ground in our nation and to deforest the area of the trees which
gave shelter and protection to our eavly Freedom Fighters is a desecration.
One would have thought that the authorities would have kept hallowed this
partie2lar area of Dominica with its high cut steps in the mountainside --
a strategic precaution of Chief Jacko against surprise invasion of his
hideout, (concluded on 'page four)

A MYSTERIOUS LAND POLICY Androcles (fr. p.2). The preservation of the
Jacko Flats- in their original condition makes more sense in terms of the
development of national feeling than the new type of dress (made of mat-
erial from non-national sources) which the Government is attempting to
fist upon citizens. Jacko was the last great Runaway Chief of Dominica
and his hideout deserves better treatment than turning it into an agri-
cultural experimental station,

Readers of the "Star" were amazed by the reproduction in its issue of
28th May of a speech made in St. Kitts by a MrA Llewelyn Moore, a success-
ful Bradshaw candidate in that unhappy State's recent General Election.
This Moore has been appointed Attorney General of St. Kitts following
the Election..
It is difficult to imagine a more bloodthirsty-sounding speech than
tEhe one which is reproduced from the St. Kitts Democrat as having been
made by.this Moore a few days after the victory of his Party at the polls.
That this man is a. lawyer staggers.
He describes himself as "worse than Bradshaw" (a mouthful:) and a
terrible man". He warns that Election being over, things are not over for
the losing Party aas far as he is concerned and that it is needless for
the members of that Party "to think that they can rest in comfort .....
it's not over"' ..."Let the people not be surprised if a one-p'arty State
now emerges in St, Kitts". Of the leader of the defeated Party, Dr. Billy
Herbert, this man --- one can almost see and smell the fire and brimn-
stone -- says: "And whei~severthe hell. Billy wants to run and go, let
him run and go because there ain't no English here, there ain't nothing'
going to run the country as long as I'm alive. They are going to run
it over my dead body ... When the people in my constituency returned Lee
Moore, I took that as a personal mandate to carry on the will of the
-people' an to remove obstruction out of the way, and everybody had betat
dam well understand this."
This is the talk of the Attorney General of one of the Associated
States. The type of person, I suggest, whom the present kJbster o finance
says is .a cousin of ours and with whom we should hasten to integrate our
island. The speech reeks of the worst days of Hitler, Stalin and Mussol-
ini. And torthink that this kind of mind rules a mere 10Q miles from
her e
Among my rooted opposition to any kind of political integration at
this time is the existence of such persons and regimes directing the
affairs of many of the units which would form part of the integrated areas,
There are those casting loving glances at Communist Russia and her sat-
ellites; others embarked upon a .course of expropriation of foreign invest-
ments; still yet others bent on creating little dictatorships.
Bad as things are in Dominica, we would. never, I am persuaded, allow
this kind of things to take root here. I am sure that heirs as we are to
Freedom Fighters like Jacko, we would use exactly the same type of means
used to get our freedom. Thus front a sociological point of view, we.
must bless our historical stars which gave us deep forests in which to
preserve. and develop our free-dom when threatened. We should also bless
our historical stars which made the sugar plantation system a very short-
lived institution in Dominica. It has always seemed to me that there is
some connection between the sugar plantation system and a. subservience.
of spirit whiith-9an only issue in episodes of explosion. We in Dominica
suffer from something else: massive ignorance. But as regards living
under the heels of oppressor's, the thing is so foreign to us that we would
gladly shed blood, following in the footsteps of our Negres Marons ancest-
iors, if ever the need demanded this. Do you remember the mood of the people
'of Dominica on that 5th July, 1968, when the Government dared to tamper
with a part of the national heritage of personal freedom ?
