WALKING DOWN "FREEDOM STREET" by ANDROCLES
What will the civilized world think of us -- and it must be our
business to let; it know -- when it learns that our Government has taken
the strongest exception to the Roseau municipality naming a thoroughfare
"Freed.om Street" ? How will Dominicans living in Britain, U.S.A., Canada
and other Caribbean countries -- ouz University students in particular--
feel under the taunts of their non-Dominican friends upon hearing that
the Government of this Associated State regards it a "provocation" to
itself when a Town Council proceeds to change the uninspiring name of a
street from "Queen Mary Street" to "Freedom Street" ? There will be many
of our compatriots living abroad who will for a considerable time feel
that we cannot be serious' when we tell them that a week or so ago, the
Government of Dominica dropped all public business to give its undivided
attention to the "criisi" brought about by the Roseau Town Council's
changing the name of a street. It was therefore, small wonder that when
the House of Assembly met on 8th July, the Government. people were: "at
sea" as regards: the matters before the House: th'.- had earlier spent the
trifling: modicum of mental energy with which they are endowed on the
earth-shaking event of the change of a street name. Persons sent to Gov-
ernment, Headqtarters to survey the scene, during the period of the "crisis"
found the place in a carnival-like atmosphere, with Ministers, huddled
together, wearing facial expressions, of deep worry and confusion, while
their Civil Servants., gathered in small groups, could only barely disguise
their wry smiles. of contempt for this particular priority of their pol-
itical masters and many of whom could not help expressing this feeling
The Government through its. public relations division, issued frantic
releases accusing the Town Council of adopting a procedure in the re-
naming which denied the Central Government. the opportunity of vetoing
the name chosen. It, stated that the law required that the naming of st&ects
should be done by way of a bye-law subject to the approval of Central
Government. What it did not say, however, is that no one can find any
trace of the naming of the streets of Roseau having been effected by bye-
laws, nor that the previous latest change: was' the re-naming of "New Street'
to "Kennedy- Avenue'" in honour of that great man (.and which public fun-
ction the Government Ministers attended) was done by a simple Resolution,
of the Roseau Town Council. The streets and roads of Portsmouth and of
the villages (including "Oliver Street", named in honour of a son of the
village whom the Village Council consider distingu-ished) have all been
done, by simple decision or Resolution of the competent municipal author-
ity. It is true that the Roseau Town Council law states; that the Council
MAY make bye-laws for street naming, but as is the case with so very many
of its activities, no Town Council has ever chosen to do so.
The Government, therefore, in the initial stages of what it. saw as a
national crisis, deemed the action of the Town Council illegal and said
so in its Press Releaseso This was taken to mean that it. proposed using
Cour-t means to. declare the naming act of the Council ultra vires. But
almost immediately after, no doubt upon belated reflection, the Govern-
ment shifted its proposed course of action and changing its personality
from Government to Party took to the public platform,
At a meeting of the Leblanc Labour rarty, a mere rump called upon the
people attending to sign a distributed petition form addressed tol.- Pemier
asking him. to cause the Council to remove the new name-sign of "Freedom
Street", As, was to be expected, the preamble contained an untrue state-
ment, viz, that the town of Roseau was Labour-orientated since it had
returned Leblanc Party representatives at the General Election held after
the Town Council bye-election which gave the Town Council completely to
the Dominica Freedom Party when the Leblanc Party, noting the mood of the
people of Roseau, decided not to contest. The truth is that the General
Election took place in October and the Tam Council bye-election in Decem--
ber. Why is the Leblanc Party/Government so allergic to truth and to
freedom? In reply to this meeting, the Opposition Freed.om Party two days
later mounted a far larger and more impressive public meeting at which,

WALING' DOVTN "FREEDOM STREET" by Androcles (continued from page two)
by. powerful acclamation, the citizens of Roseau called on the Town
Council to adhere to its re-naming act, despite Leblanc Government/Pty
objection, since the Council acted within its competence.
Let us now come to the. he-art of the- matter: .hat is it all about ?
The onus is on the Leblanc Government/Party to show that there is some-
thing wrong or, as it. prefers to put it, something provovative, in the
naming of a Roseau street 'Freedom Street".
The, Council's view is something like this: there is no concept which
has more captured the imagination of this day and age than that of freedom
Indeed, it was in appreciation of this: that when the local Opposition
Party came to be formed and to choose a name, it chose to call itself
the; "Dominic-a r-a dom Party", iAll over the world -- in U.S.A., Sou-th
Africa, the Communist countries, the countries of the Third World, pat-
riots are proud to suffer and give their lives if- necessary for freedom.
The United Nations has never done: anything more. meaningful than to se.t
out for the whole civilized world a Charter and Declaration of Human
Rights and Freedoms. Everywhere, particularly in the schools and ~riv-
e.sities, young people organize protest demonstrations when freedom is
threatened. Open any newspaper in any language and the likelihood is. that
the word "freedom" will frequently appear on the pages. Even our Con-
stitution, drafted for us. by a pe.oplc acknowledged to be foremost champ-
ions: of their national freedom through the ages., commences thus:
"W1iHEREAS the People of Dominica ...
(a) have affirmed that the State of Dominica is founded
upon principles that acknowledge the supremacy of God,
faith in fundamental human rights, and freedoms ..."
We in Dominica have a patois proverb originating, I suppose, in our early
agricultural history, to the effect that it is -ihose who have cocoa beans
drying out in the sun who keep looking out for the rain. In this proverb
is contained the reason for what appears to be the Leblanc Government/
Party's allergy to the concept of freedom and itq- objection to naming a
thoroughfare: "Freedom Street". It fears and worries that this will bring
t'o and keep before the minds of the people the dastardly attack upon
their freedoms' whi.- ch was made by the present Government. For it was only
one year after we had enjoyed our Constitution rhosoe opening words are
quoted above: that the Leblanc Government/Party launched in its Sed:itiods
and Undesirable Publications Act of 1968, passed despite..the populace's
uproarious objections: in the House of Assembly, an attack against freedom
of expression (particularly newspapers); freedom of association (forming
parties in opposition to Government. -- but this was shown to be so crude
that the provision was withdrawn at the last moment);. protection for the
privacy of home and property (opening of addressed letters, entry of
Police T"by day or night'', with or without, before or after, the issue of
a prohibition order, into the homes of citizens)o
The literate section of the Dominica population has never forgotten
this incident and which to say the truth, is frequently brought to remem-
brance by the Opposition Party. The Leblanc Party in its recent publicat-
ion has recently tried to disclaim the initiative for the detested Sed-
itious and Undesirable Publications Act by stating that such a law alr&dy
existed in 1940 -- wartime- emergency conditions; -- a period when we were
a direct colonial dependency of Great Britain. What an argument for a
Party 1whos9 obvious duty was to repeal it if such a law were found as a
legacy from colonial times instead of -- as all the newspapers of Dom-
inica in their, i'sue of 6th July, 1968, jointly pointed out. -- (a) de-
leting the ameliorating clause setting out the definition of seditious
intent; (b) increasing the definitions of "sedition! from 6 to 11; (c)
the absolute dieration conferred on Government ministerss politicians
-- to suspend or prohibit the publication of any newspaper, and several
others. The Leblanc Pa1rty publication must justify the additional strin-
gent provisions _imposed in peacetime as compared with what our colonial
mansLstrc. considered adequate for wartime. concluded on pae fiv)

in the Hospital compound, and has
made a valuable contribution to the
medical activity of the town. We
hope he will one day be able to
return to Dominica with his family,
and stay for a longer time, having
returned to Canada on July 20th,
