One of the most picturesque (and stable) of
our bridge is the red-painted one leading to the
Roseau Valley. From it, women can be seen wash-
ing clothes daily, and young people enjoying a
sparkling fresh-water bath.
Although the Premier h'kd declared 'no party po-
litics in Town Council Elections', the Portmmouth
- contest was a straight fight between Freedom and
Labour which won all 5 seats with roughly 2. r
lead. Present Councillors ate O.Magloire, M.
Douglas, E.Martin, Djohnson and R.Thtoms.
All Freedom Candidates retained their deposits.

Page Two lESA

The date of the triennial Roseau Town Council Election has been
fixed for Tuesday, the 26th of this month. This date, incidentally, is
the anniversary of the last General Election in which the Leblanc Party
got a sweeping victory. I appeal to the people of Roseau to make this
date in 1971 one to be remembered by the Leblanc Party as the date of a
resounding defeat at the hands of the people of Roseau.
Much has happened since that date in 1970, the latest being the rape
of the Roseau Town Council (an institution carefully and patiently built
up by our forefathers )by the Leblanc Government; the detailed preparat-
ions coldly and calculatingly made by the same Government for annihilat-
ing those who would have dared to protest to the House of Assembly at its
last meeting on 23rd September and, over and above all these, the Govern-
ment's proposed legislation for "controlling" the banks and, with it,
"controlling" the savings of the people of Dominica who have laboured so
hard and under so many difficulties to put aside something for a rainy
day. As is only to be expected from a capital city, its inhabitants see
earlier than other parts of the country signs and portents for good or
for ill in the affairs of the nation.
Consequently, it is not surprising that he people of Roseau have
been the first to discover and uncover the evils which are the Leblanc
Party/Government. This view and attitude is widespread in the town and
the town is determined that, despite its rape by Government, the Roseau
Town Council will come from the Opposition Party. Apart from the fact
that it took the Opposition Party to clean up the mess in which the pre-
vious Labour Party Town Council had left the affairs of the town when
they deserted it, Roseau is desirous of demonstrating its complete lack
of support and confidence in the Leblanc shoe Party/Government for the
many ills and harms it continues to bring upon Dominica, including that
Qf making us the laughing stock of the West Indies in the Freedom Street
issue. Therefore Roseau Townspeople are proposing to give the Leblanc
Party a resounding vote of no confidence in the coming Roseau Town Council
election. .The Leblanc Party has been challenged to contest that election
as a Party in the same way as the Opposition Freedom Party will contest
it with its 5 candidates. The Leblanc Party will have to accept this
challenge or lose face and thus openly admit that the capital of the
country is against it.
Because of this, Independent candidates are advised not to take part
in this election. Any person coming forward as an independent candidate
will be regardedTbrying to complicate the issue for the benefit of the
Shoe Party and such action will be construed as an attempt to frustrate
the will of the people of Roseau in this purely local election. The
voters of Roseau are therefore urged to turn out on the 26th and give a
massive vote aaint the Leblanc Shoe Party for the many wrong things
it has been doing and is still planning to do since it was returned to
office as the Government of Dominica exactly a year ago. Positively,the
voters of Roseau will show their support for the Freedom Party which is
the only force standing between the people and full dictatorship.

An incident of some significance which recently occurred must not be
allowed to-pass unnoticed and unrecorded. It shows the dictatorial ten-
dency and propensity of the present Government.
On the 13th September, the Government issued Release No.400/71 entit-
led "proposed;Local Government Legislation" which was repeatedly read over
the facilities: of WIBS Dominica. This release, in the view of the Roseau
lown Council with whose affairs it dealt exclusively, contained a large
number of misstatements and inaccuracies calculated to give a one-sided
view of things to the people of Dominica. In an effort, therefore, to pre-
sent all the facts to the public, the Town Council formally requested time
on WIBS for the Mayor of Roseau to give the Council's side of the story.
The Government flatly turned down the request fot the Mayor to speak
to the people of Roseau on WIBS Dominica,without giving any reason.

STRAIGHT ISSUES by Androcles (cont. from page two)
What do Dominicans, the people of Roseau in particular, think of this?
Is. WIBS the private property of the Premier or is it a facility for the
full information of the people ? Is the Mayor of the capital city repre-
S sending the people of Roseau a not sufficiently important and responsible
person. to be accorded the use of a facility financed from the taxes of
the people so that they can have access to information? Is the Mayor's
addressato the people of his city of less value and importance than the
comings and goings of Ministers, with which WIBS Dominica is so often
This policy of so controlling the media of information for the sole
use of those in power is typical of incipient dictatorship which always
tries to have the people know only what the political bosses want them
to-know and nothing else, Signs are not wanting of what is in store for
us if the people of Dominica do not wake up quickly.

If anyone wanted confirmation of the desire of the LeBlanc Govern-
ment to shed the blood of citizens, this can be found on page 3 of the
Party's newspaper of 29th Sep ~tf ber.

In a news item headed "Freedom Call to Demonstrata Unheeded", the
paper says that "the Freedom Party has lost much support recently"
(.his is the first time that it is admitting that the'Freedom Party
does have "much support") because the proposed demonstration was
thwarted by the issue of a Government Proclamation. It. could not expect
the demonstration to have taken place when' the same Party newspaper
had (1) announced earlier that its proprietors were arranging a count-
er-demonstration to coincide with the popular protest demonstration (2)
as a consequence of which its proprietors issued a Government Proclam-
ation banning meetings and marches between the 22nd and 24th September
and (3) proceeded by a show of force to declare that anyone disobey-
ing the terms of the Proclamation would be killed. How, under these
circumstances, could the Editor of the Party organ expect the peace
and freedom loving people of Roseau to carry out the originally pro-
posed demonstration? It is quite unnecesarry for the Educator to have
told us thata&th eas=ra, despite the Party Government ban,been attempted,
it "would have led to bloodshed and damage to property". This was clearly
to be seen in the warlie; preparations: that the Government had arranged
to destroy its own citizens had they demonstrated on 23rd September.
The whole region knows of .this by now. But I repeat, the people are
not so stupid to stand in line of battle against the armed forces.
They know that the evils now being Verpetrated against them are the
work of 2 or 3 individuals who would not, in any case, be in the line
of battle.

No. doubt, Government will have to renew its Proclamation for every
meeting of the House of Assembly.
