T he cowardice and cravenness of the Leblanc Government came to full
public flowering in its handling of the protest march planned by the people
of Roseau. Unable to contemplate the scene of thousands of citizens ex-
pressing their disgust with a Government elected as recently as ten months
ago, the members of the Government, as long foretold by this and other
columnists as well as by editors, made elaborate arrangements to maim or
destroy many of the persons who so recently returned them to power.
From authentic and detailed reports at the disposal of the Opposition
Party, it was learned of the inordinate attention given to anti-demonstra-
tion drill to the Defence Force during its recent two-weeks stay in St.
Lucia. There then followed the daily intensive anti-demonstration attack
practices arranged for the Police at Morne Bruce. From his home at Good-
will, this columnist could hear the blood-curdling cries and shouts being
uttered by the Police during these sessions as, I imagine, theyshit out
at dummies ii anticipation of the real thing. It is known that all the
policemen stationed in the rural areas were brought into Roseat for these
and other practices. The rural constables were also brought to the Min-
istry of Home Affairs when they were lectured on the part they were re-
quired to play if and when the citizens of Dominica organized a protest
All these preparations were, of course, ordered by those duly elected
representatives of the people who succeeded to political power on the Le-
'blancParty ticket. But how stupid these people continue to be' Do they
really believe that if and when violence erupts in the population, the
people will stand 'in line of battle to face the police and Defence Forde
equipped with all the sophisticated types of arms bought by the Government
with an eye to their use against the people of Dominica?
.hen the Government made its biggest blunder. Its Party announced in
its weekly publication that it was going to stage a rival and counter dem-
onstration to that planned by:..the citizens. Widely announced weeks earlier
and proposed to coincide with the sitting of the House of Assembly, the
protest march was intended to demonstrate popular opposition to certain
measures of legislation contemplated by the Government, namely, overriding
the 'Town Council's roght to naming streets; reduction of the powers of
the 70-year-old Roseau Town Council; the award of life pensions to Govern-
ment Ministers and their wives -- all matters affecting the people and
against which they have a perfect right to protest. This was the Govern-
Sment Party's idea of causing incidents which would inevitably lead to the
desired trigger-pulling. For this was a pure act of provocation of thous-
ands whose blood was already on the boil at the contemplated legislation.
It was at this point that the Governor acted. He must have taken all
his courage in his hands to issue the two Proclamations dated 8th September
forbidding meetings during the three days 2Snd to 24th September and bring-
ing the Defence Force to the alert. It is significant that up to the date
of writing this (13th September) the Government had not informed the citi-
zens of Dominica about this development. * ...' .. The Governor's
reason for issuing the Proclamations was that a civil disturbance appeared
inevitable -- a correct reading of the situation if the hastily-arranged
counter demonstration by the ruling Party against the long-discussed and
publicised popular demonstration were allowed to take place. The Governor
even saw in the calculated Leblanc-Party-planned collision "imminent nat-
ional danger". Thus provocative toughs on the other side have
prevented the peaceful demonstration of Dominica against certain ills in
the body politic and since, from general experience, the Government and
the Leblanc Party are one and the same thing, it can be said that the Gov-
ernment of Dominica was willing to physically suppress its citizens for
daring to protest against certain items proposed to be turned into law.

"IMMINENT NATIONAL DANGER" by Androcles (continued from page two)
The outside, press was waiting and-expecting all this. We cannot forget
how the principal newspapers of the Caribbean ridiculed the Dominica Gov-
ernment for its creation of a "national- crisis" out of the Roseau Town
Council's naming of a thoroughfare "Freedom Street". So no sooner was the
Proclamation issued, than newspapers-' of the West Indies immediately re-
cognized that this virtual. declaration of a state of emergency had been
br ought about by the Government's threatened "was of attrition". The
gawe is.focussed on Dominican happenings.
Next, in a silly attempt to, drag a herring across the'trail, the Gov-
ernment radio ON THE VERY NEXT DAY came out with the story that a stick
of dynamite had been found placed ,at the home of one of the Ministers
who fbor over a week had been away in a very distant land and that it had
been meant for the Minister's innocent wife and children. I have no
hesitation in classifying this as one of those silly story-antics of those
now in power. I do not believe a word of it. All I think it does is to
put ideas in the heads of potential malefactors. Any such attack could
only have as its object the Minister himself and he would be a poor at-
tacker indeed who would not take the trouble to find out whether or not
the Minister was home,at the time, a not tedious or difficult chore
seeing the wide "educational" publicity always given on WIBS Dominica to
goings and comings of Ministers,
Now, in the face of all these things, I wish to associate myself" with
the Editor of one of our contemporaries in his denunciation of those
persons who try to dismiss all such goings-on as the "politics of ir-
relevance", applying equally to those who bring, about such hardships as
to those who endure them.
This phrase "Politics of' Irrelevance" -- I regard as merely the
mouthing arising from mental indigestion if, as it appears, it is meant
to apply indifferently to those, who cause. as to those who suffer from
the acts of irrelevance. It may be regarded, also, as sheer mental lazi-
ness: the, lack of the energy required to identify and distinguish the'
evildoer from the victim. In still another way, this philosophy betrays
a inassive lack' of character when, as is so often the case., it is a play-
ing-up to the Government authorities for one reason or another, mainly,
however, because they are the eus;todians of the public purse. I think
this is very poor indeed, and the more so when those who condemn in one
.-breath both those who give and those who receive irrelevance are persons
supposed to be. educated. This will be communally disappointing.
We learn from science that action and reaction are equal, though
opposite. Surely, the prime cause is action: reaction is the consequent-
ial response. No action, and consequentlyy, no reaction. Thus it ought
to be easy enough in the political setting to distinguish action from
reaction. If people are deprived of their freedom of expression or, for
no good reason, their long cherished right to municipal self-government,
the assertion of such rights cannot be placed in the same category and
on the same plane as the act of deprivation of them.
' This, by and large, is what is happening around us and I should very
much hope that in the future there will appear a better sense of dis-
crimination and .that sufficient strength of character will be displayed,
as this columnist has consistently striven to do, to distinguish the
sheep from the goats, the good from the bad, the not-so-good from. the
R. I 0 T C 0 N RI'R 0 L : A WARNING (from the New Scientist of Aug,12.)

harmful to the innocent". Professors Rosenhead & Peter Smith of the Ex.
