OBVIOUS IUNTFRUTH


The Labour Party newspaper has printed
certain d.eeptive L.mrt;nents on the hugely
suC-.,sful meeting of delegates of the Oppo-
?.l:on Parties which took place at the imvita-
tion .f the Freedom Party last week. As re-
czrding secretary of the conference, this .di
tor is able to state that the delegates, with the
-oc cxceiption of 'Dr Herbert St. Kitts)
were willing and even keen ti. : aUend he pub-
iic meeting, provided it was a n aon.a-region
A u.ne and did not deal with Dominica's in-
r.;r., politics as such. Dr. 1Herbert had his
.-.r reasons for non attendance ai the public
.mn,.ting, for as the chairman said: "some
-:r states do no: h:.ve the same degree of
.re'dom as we do."And O' R freedom, as
You all well know, has b--.en achieved thro ,!1h
h; to.il and sweat of the Oppositron here in
Dominica no wonder, that the delegates con-
gratulated eveybody on it. Even the young
Nevis men made their bow, one giving the
Freedom salute!
The public meeting was due a.t 8 p.m.,
and the Labour Party (through Mr. Ronald
Armour), insisted on meeting the regional de-
leates S.a! Fort Young a' 7 p.m. He kept them
waiting half an hour, then took them to the
Labour Parry rooms, where they were hard-
:I .-sd to deny the stand they made in their
..:cmiemint they did not do so, but held heir
ground. Eventually one of them said, "'they
are making uslate for our meeting let's go."

THE DOMINICA CONFERENCE OF OPPOSITION DELEGATES
Last week-end a highly significant, positive and successful confer-
ence took place in this State. Regional opposition delegates, who were
leaders, Members of their respective Houses and advisers in their own
lands were mandated by their Barties to take certain decisions and em-
body these in a statement, which appears below. Without betraying the
proceedings of the closed sessions to which these hardworking and dedi-
cated men, came here at their own expense on the invitation of the
Dominica Freedom Party, it may be -revealed that the words vibrant,
meaningful, self-determination and inform the people rang throughout
the speeches of the participants. Here is the Statement which they signed.
4 0 4_ _ _ _
JOINT OPPOSITION STATEMENT ON "GRENADA DECLARATION"
We the undersigned representing Opposition Parties in the Eastern
Caribbean, having assembled at Dominica for the purpose of discussing the
implications of the Grenada Declaration, hereby state as follows:
1. We re-affirm our faith in and commitment to Caribbean integration in a
meaningful form so as to bring maximum economic and social benefits to
our people. Our ultimate goal is the creation of an independent vibrant
and viable Caribbean nation.
2. We condemn those responsible for the Grenada Declaration for the
following reasons:
(i) The secrecy, indecent haste and total disregard of public opinion
demonstrated.
,(ii) The exclusion of the Opposition from the discussions leading to
the signing of the declaration.
(iii) The imposition of a completed plan for political union without
prior public consultation.
(iv) 'The fact that the proposed grouping seems designed solely to
entrench the position of certain political leaders now in Government.
(v) The fact that the proposed grouping with Guyana is unrealistic.
3.' We recommend that in the pursuit of our common aspirations, the
following guide-lines should be adopted:
(i) That the Associated States take immediate steps to bring about
closer economic integration through the existing regional agencies, and
take immediate steps to give practical effect to the agreement estab-
lishing the East Caribbean Common Market.
(ii) That Governments of the Associated States should forthwith allow
the free movement of their nationals between the various States without
the need for passports or other similar travel documents.
(iii)That the necessity for work permits to be obtained by any such
national should not be required in any Associated State.
(i) That the Immigration Laws of these States should not permit the
deportation of these nationals from any State for political reasons.
(v) That in preparing the people for total involvement in nation building
there must be an immediate intensive campaign of education geared to
reaching persons of all ages.
(vi) "That to effectively carry out this education campaign it is essen-
tial that total freedom of press and radio and other communication media
be guaranteed, and given practical effect to, and that all government
owned communication media be controlled by independent bodies.

(vii) That the trend among Governments of the Associated States to
stockpile arms and to utilise other forces of coercion for the purpose
of creating such a degree of fear as to restrict the participation of the

(viii) That for the purpose of giving practical effect to popular partic-

(x) That in all deliberations on regional matters adequate representation

We accordingly call upon the signatory Governments to'take care

they do not do untold damage to the ultimate ideal of a nation embracing
the entire Caribbean.

Mr. Star Lestrade: "We are -unable to accept the spirit of the Grenada
Declaration an attempt of the present rulers of these islands to

Dr.Friday: The people themselves ought to be concerned with this be-
cause it is so basic to tha ir future and their wellbeing."

D O.M I N I C A C 0;N F E.R E N C EF II by ANDROCLES

Sidk and tired of the Leblanc policy of having Dominica at all times
led by other Caribbean countries, the Freedol Party took the bold initia-
tive of summoning representatives of Opposition Parties of the Associated
States to meet in Dominica in order to discuss and adopt a common attitude
towards the so-called Declaration of Grenada. This infamous document, to wh
which the Government of Dominica was a signatory, would condemn us into
association with Guyana whose main object, carefully disguised, is be-
lieved to be the increase in voting power of the African-descended segment
of the .Guyana population vis-a-vis that of the Indian population.(This
very week we learn that 29 per cent of the labour force of Guyana is un-
employed, and that the Guyana Trades Union Congress plans a protest march
of unemployed workers on Georgetown).
Even before Dominica Conference II (Nol. having taken place in 1932
when West Indian political stalwarts, who have grown into the status of
almost legendary figures, first discussed West Indian unity), the people
of Dominica, having recovered from their shock and surprise of.November 1,
when the document was issued, had already grown hot under the collar on
this account and were swearing by the beards and bones of their ancestors
and by all that they held holy that this union would never be.
This writer must be one of the exceedingly few persons in Dominica
who, at that very moment of Dominica decision, saw and heard the Premier
of this State on Barbados Television, picked up in the Grand Bay area,
being interviewed. The signals were extremely clear and so no mistake was
possible. This was the evening of Saturday, 6th November.
With a photograph of Forbes Burnham, Premier of Guyana (and evident
mentor of our Premier) serving as background and giving the kind of "Big
Brother" effect so reminiscent of certain countries, Mr. Leblanc was ex-
pressing his determination to take Dominica into association with Guyana,
even if.he were the only one of the signatories to do so. This, of course,
was a reference to St. Lucia and Grenada which, having also signed the so-
called "Declaration of Grenada" published on the 1st, proceeded on the
2nd November to withdraw from it. The Premier was also saying that since
CARIFTA had originally been initialled by only three Caribbean countries
and was now acceded to by all, the same could happen with political union.
This was his justification for taking Dominica into union with Guyana since,
ain his view, political union was the summum bonum At that moment, hearing
the Premier view and already knowing popular feeling, I realized immed-
iately that Premier and people were moving on a collision course. I say
"Premier", not "Government", because it is known that, one member apart,
the Cabinet:; knew nothing about Dominica's accession to the Grenada Declar-
ation until publication. This is a fact despite what,.in self defence,.may
be said in the future even by the Cabinet members themselves many of whom,
like the rest of the.population, are opposed to the projected union. It
is worthwhile wondering whether there is an ideological gulf separating
the Premier and his former heir-apparent on the one hand from the others
of the Cabinet on the other.
The same kind of shocked indignation which was the spontaneous reaction
of Dominicans was exactly the reaction of large sections of the populations
of the other islands whose Premiers had signed the Declaration. "So it was
the most natural of things for the Conference of Opposition Delegates(from
Grenada, Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, St. Kitts and Dominica) to agree in
condemnation and rejection of the Declaration of Grenada. Main reason
given was that this unrealistic union proposal had been secretly negotiated
with "indecent haste" and without benefit of consultation either with the
Parliamentary Oppositions or public opinion. A significant event was,from
the side of Guyana, the rejection of the Grenada Declaration by the two
main-Opposition Parties of.that country, one of which even cabled the
'Dominica Conference to this effect.
