"Wany political parties in the
ComtEmowealth calling themselves
Labour are not really Labour Partiea
at all, or socialist in our meaning
of the word...They trade on the pop-
ularity of the name 'Labour' to win
elections, but it is often a dis-
guise for a nationalist or other
faction." That is what Hugh Gaits-
kell told your editor in Trinidad,
a few months before his sudden
death: he was to have been Britain's
PFime Yinister.Gaitskell was reply-
inp to the question, "why not change
th-e name British Labour Party into
,ommionwealth Labour Party?" and he
shdok his head, for the reason abc
and because "the British electorate
is still too insular." ... Survey
the West Indian scene with its crop
of 'Labour Parties' in St. Kitts,

Recently in Libya a number of journalists were tried for "peervert-
ing public opinion". It is a pity we do.not have such a law -.ere urrer
which the editor and ..certain columnists of the "Educatar" could be
tried and punished. Because there appears to be no limit to their
attempts at perverting public opinion.
Take, for example,,, the issue of the "Educator" of 19th.January.
Thbs: is an issue made up of outright lies, deliberate misinformation
and calculated half-truths,. So that were the paper to be believed (thank
goodness, it is not), it would produce a kind of deformed and distorted
personality v ery much like the type one encounters in a place like
pond Col --people unable to distinguish truth from falsehood, right from
The issue under scrutiny (Vol.2 NoZ) begins with a calculated half
(or less.) truth. It describes as an important move "to.put back the ban-
ana industry on its feet Government removal af the export surtax on
bananas. When we enquire what is 'this important move, we find that it
does not amount to one cent per- bunch of bananas. Surely, this is
coldly calculated to mislead. There is, moreover, no reference to the
.8 cents per bunch .'export duty-which the Government continues to levy
even at this time of great peril to the industry. How, in the name of
truth, can the remitting of 1, ss than a cent per bunch of bananas be re-
garded as an important move to put the industry back on its feet?
Turn to page 4 of the offending issue and you have the effusion of
"ROPA", the pen-name of the preaset Minister of Finance. He is discussing
the local Black Power Movement and finds it "sad to see the lack of in-
.tellectual content" (a phrase lifted straight out of a recant news item ,
-,.Vidia Naipaul?- of the Movement.) Why? Because"1it comes o1ot against
(union with) Guyana", a country "which gave Rosie Douglas a platform"; a
country which has introduced a system of government importing and one
"which has attempted to tackle the problem of Black Control of the es-
sential-resources of the country"..These, according to our Minister of
Finance; are the solid reasons why Dominicans --Black Power and other -
should wish to entrust their future into the hands of Forbea Burnham and
Cheddi Jagan;and I suspect Mr. Armour, given a choice, might even prefer
the regime of the latter. Can we therefore be surprised that with such
puerile mentality in high places, this country can make no headway? Does
it not, for example, explain how it comes that this Government, in power
for 12 years, and operating an economy whose main basis, the banana in-
dustry, it did not help in creating, has not been able over that period
to establish any alternative industry which could.take the place of the
banana industry were this to collapse for one reason or another?
Next we pass to a column by "Cecil Amos", no other than Eustace
Francis, the editor of the Educator and Speaker of what with a gulp we
must continue to regard as the Honourable House of Assembly. Now there
is quite an interesting story behind this pen-name. When, in a big move
to deceive, this name was used in a letter which said that the writer
lives in Eliot Avenue, Pottersville, voted for Miss Charles in the last
.General Election and regretted doing so, the writer did not reckon with
the calibre of his political opponents. Reference to the voters' list of
the constituency for which Miss Charles stood showed no such name, while
a house-to-house enquiry in Eliot Avenue proved conclusively that there
is no such person in that area. Confronted with such evidence, "Cecil Amos"
wrote that his name cannot be found in the voters' list referred to be-
cause the vote he cast was in the more recent Roseau Town Council Elee-
tion. But Miss Charles was not a candidate in the Roseau Town Council
Election, and.so the deceit was fully shown up. But "Cecil Amos" is not
one to waste the failure of a monumental lie and so has adopted this name
as one of his several nomeAde-plume By the way, what has happened to
columnist "Cheltonian" from Portsmouth? Is he another victim of the intra-
Party wranglings for which the Le bjlanc Labour Prty is so notorious ?
However back to "Cecil Amos". First of all, he bands all the ~,CO00
4O000 persons who took part in the demonstration of 16th December as per-
sons of infamy who took part in "that infamous march". (Concluded on p).4

Last week I mentioned in my col-
umn that the method now used to
patch up the streets was no good.
I didn't have to wait long to prove
my point. With the heavy rains which
have been pouring down lately "the
jobs" are ggain potholes. It causes I
a bit of snickering to see people.

ing. What they are taking refuge
from is the splash that results whel
a car's wheels land in a hole filled
with dirty water, Even the girls in
mini skirts who really have nothing
but legs to get wet attempt to pull
up skirts which can't get any higher
- or can they?
Fire in Roman Catholic Church'
fire-fighters (what a sad joke ) re-
fuse to respond! Due, they say, to
administrative foul-up., How about a
commission of inquiry for that? Or
will it just be swept under the car-
pet like unsolved murders?
A family I know is a little con-
cerned that they now have to run the
gauntlet of used contraceptives in
the Rodney's Rock area whenever they
go Sunday bathing. I checked with
some EXPERTS and found out that it
is impossible to get yourself a
parking spot if you get there after
nine o clock (at night, of course).
Here's a little business for the

When I sleep nowadays I hope to
dream that some rich patron will giv
me with no strings attached a large
sum of money. But I always forget'
that I can't afford the services of
a Pundit! In one dream I reached as.

told a friend of mine, "whatever you

How is it that something dire
.ike the deterioration in relations
betweenn Police and West Indians looms
ip virtually unheralded, unlike a
hurricane? That the British Police,
3o noted for their fair firm reputa-
tions, can be extremely brutal we
mow from experience, having been rid-
den down by a police horse outside
the House of Commons during a demon-
~a&twion once. Before and after that
time we have regularly paid our subs;
to the National Council for Civil
Liberties, which unearthed many of
the facts in this sad development.
We await a study of the 6-page doc-

mainly means harming the innocent.
We thought Arlington Rivier-e.gave a
good account of the whole matter over
Radio Dominica on Weds. night, and
since most of our readers heard it,
we shall not be repetitious here,but
wait to comment when we-have examin-

sympathies are with the West Indians

you have a Government in Britain now

This American dance group performed

of us younger ones it was the very
first time we had ever seen modern'
ballet dancers: it was real art.to
see them twist and turn their flex-

gathering. They got applauded after
every separate dance and it was a good
thing that the moderator came on stage
to explain when there were going to
be abstract parts (things that look
unrealistic to the human eye). The
dances I most enjoyed were GENESIS
and one about a married man flirting
with another woman. Genesis was god--
it gave an idea of how things happened
in creation to arrive at the evolution
of man...the background was like the

'Their actions in joining the protest he dubs "criminal actions".
But, as usual, he attempts to deceive when he states that because
the mee ting of the House was: not h eld as scheduled on 16th December,
a Resolution to control downward the price of meat could not be passed
End so Dominicans had to pay more for their beef and pork at Christmas-
time than would otherwise have been the case. Now this is an untruth,
for everybody knows that price control of meat is operated under Statut-
ory Rules and Orders which are made by the Cabinet and only reported to,
t:ie House at a much later date. It is, however, convenient to remImnl
"Cecil Amos" that it was his Premier who, shortly before the last General
Election, told fishermen and animal producers that they could sell their
fish and meat at their own price. Never forget this,"'Cecil Amos"and Mr.
Armour! And one can see: no difference in principle between animal owners
raising the price of their produce to increase their incomes as advised
by the Premier and Members of the House raising their salaries and giving
themselves and their wives pensions to-boot.
Other lies are that because the 5,000 citizens of Dominica acted in
so "infamous" a way on 16th December, the amendfnent of the Income Tax Act
to give relief in respect of wife's income and children s allowance could
not be passed that day and will have to wait until 19Y7. Let us begin by
reminding the writer -that these concessions do not come from the initiat-
ive and goodness of heart of his Government. It is years now since the
population has been pressing for such relief by way of representation
through groups like the Social League and others. They are, in fact,very
long overdue and it is untrue to say that "these benefits will now have
to be deferred". If they are deferred to 1973, it is because Government
wishes to deferr: them as a punishment to the population, for they can be
passed at any future; meeting of the House. Does the Government not in-
tend to hold any meetings; of the House in the near future? If not,why not
So, too, must we nail the lie that because a House of Assembly meeting
was not held on 16th December, "workers who are regularly employed on road
work were denied employment from January 1st. So road programmes are now
at a standstill". This lie was anticipated in one of the local papers sev-
eral weeks ago when it was stated with full knowledge that Government has
the power to spend up to one-sixth of the amount of votes of the previous
year in anticipation of approval of the Budget by the House. So if road
work is not taking place, it is not because the House has not met. In re-
cent years, on many occasions the Budget has.not been passed before Vbb-
ruary. The more likely reason why there is no work is that the Government
has no cash to employ road workers. Passing the Budget does not by itself
produce the funds if there is none.
"Cecil Amos" continues with a vicious attack on the President of the
Waterfront and Allied Workers Union--Mr. Louis Benoit whose reputation
for sanity and honesty of purpose must be the envy of "Cecil Amos". He is
accused of not organizing marches.when Government 'fails in its obvious
duty of controlling the prices of sugar, rice, sardines as well as beef
pork, drugs et@:. This is an admission of inability on the part of a Gov-
ernment organ : that its clear duty should be undertaken by the President
of a trade union. Another-charge is that the President of WAWU supports
the Freedom Party. If this is so, it shows that Mr. Benoit's thinkingwas
more in advance of most' of his contemporaries. He has probably turned down
the blandishments of the Government to join their dirty Shoe Party, which
cannot be said of eminent lawyers, directors of big business," etc. And as
for "the Labour Party representing;.the lesser privileged section of the
community" as stated by "Cecil Amos;", let the Development Bank loans of
$360,000; houses in the select Canefield Housing area; recently-acquired
estates in the Vieille Case District; extensive land-holdihgs in the
Northern District, &c. &c. &c. speak for themselves'
If there has in fact '-been any interest of the Leblane Labour Party
in the "lesser privileged sections of the community", it has only been
so that by their voting strength, the bosses of the Party may remain in

"Civil Servants Behaviour Shocking"... thus read a headline in the
Labour newsorgan EDUCATOR of January 5. The views expressed seem to re-
flect the convulsions of a sterile, if not brainwashed colonial mind,
the like of which is rapidly becoming an anachronism in 'our region.
My reaction to the involvement of civil servants in.the Dec,16th
protest contrasts sharply with that author's view. For while he inter-
prets the oivil servants' actions as "demonstrating and expressing per-
sonal animosity publicly against the Government", I see those individuals
as "free" citizens of Dominica exercising their fundamental right of
freedom of expression, by publicly demonstrating their objection to a
specific act of discernible trend towards Government insanity, insensit-.
ivity and arrogance.
I admit experiencing a glow of admiration for those brave citizens
of the state who in spite of the strong risk of recrimination were not
satisfied to stifle their discon:-ent behind the convenient mask of the
Civil Service. It is this sort of person who is njy hero -not the cheat-
ing, scheming politician or the opportunistic businessman or professional
who stands by in silent subjugation to his base instincts. Those courage-
ous civil servants have rekindled my optimism about the future of Dominica*
The author of the article under comment suggests that the incidental
circumstance of employment by "Government" automatically strips person
of civic responsibilities and basic human rights. And contrary to the
evaluation that those civil servants acted irresponsiblyy, disgracefully
and malevolently", I am of the opinion that -their actions will prove to
be a positive input in nation;: building.
Cecil Amos (?) insists that "a civil servant is a public servant and
MUST AT ALL TIMES serve the-Government of the day honestly, sincerely and
efficiently" as honestly, sincerely and efficiently as. German soldiers
served Hitler? as American soldiers in Vietnam serve the interests of
the American Government? as the undisciplined troops of Yha Yha Khan
carried out his orders to murder millions of innocent Bengalis? Or as
black Africans have up) to now obeyed their White Governments in Rhodesia
and South Africa? What embarrassing questions I am asking.
Maybe I should repeat a previous conclusion: when the largest and
most enlightened s.egAfitt of the population.of a country is deliberately
obstructed from actively participating in the political life of that land
(except for oas.ting a vote once or twice every five years or so), the con,
sequences can be disastrous. This is particularly true for a country jus-'
emerging from the clutches of colonialism. The sterile mentality that suL
a condition has perpetuated here and elsewhere in.the Caribbean bears
testament to the dangers inherent in a policy that discourages public par-
ticipation in government.
When the majority of Dominicans are prohibited from publicly discuss-
ing the vital though controversial issues of the day, then we are indeed
being forced into a position of resigning ourselves to the whims of polit-
icians (and their powerful backers) who could choose to. rule by fear aid
terror; and we are fop@gd to sit upon a timb-bomb that sooner or later
will explode with horrible consequences when "caged". men are impelled
to assert their independence of power-hungry tyrants.
How can we fail to see the clear link between our former British
masters and our present Black "rulers", when the primary strategy of the
British, designedito subjugate a "foreign" people, persists and is exploit-
-'ad (even more ruthlessly and overtly) by our self-appointed "Governors" ?
It is somewhat discouraging that the Civil Service Association failed
to take up. up the challenge that.I laid at its feet on more than one occas-
ion. I hope though, that now that an offensive has been launched against
j.at old colonial regulation prohibiting civil servants from publicly ex-
pressing views on controversial political issues, the C.S.A. will take up
the fight from there. The C.S.A. should make it clear to Government (any
Government), that it will defend its members against arbitrary reprisals
&.aa result of the Dec ember 16th protest. It should further challenge the
the constitutionality of the General Orders regulation in the Courts.

Poem THDIGS TO BE RIGHTED by Alfred C. Leevy
In this short span
On this terrestrial globe,
So many things to be righted'.
The time to do the task seems never to be there.
One little moment spent
In righting an omission or commission,
One such moment that lends
A transient feeling of contentment,
Is but a'trifling part
Of the pile that stands
Formidable, forbidding,-frightful.
The purpose then is clear:
The meaning stands so naked, stripped and bare.
The span presupposes repetition.
The dust must time and again
Throw up the essence;
The essence must seek the vibrant matter.
The creature comes again renewed, refreshed.
His challenge still stares him in the face.
...myriad lessons to be learnt.
I hear the child of the dying man say,
"His prayer for mercy has given release."
No, simple child, the words of simple faith
May not frustrate the appointed cycle.
The parting is the prelude to renewal.
I hear the tankee drawl,
"How many dollars are you worth?"
No, nescient neighbour, the value of the man
Resides in what we call the abstract,
Not in the perishable trappings.
The abstract provides the wherewithal
To scale down the gigantic pile.
He who sees a world doomed
'To final destruction,
Fails to discern the essence
Though he beholds the form.
Obsession with the form shuts out the light.
The wheels of materialism rotate
With rasping, grinding cacophony,
Dro~ming the voice of peace and love.
The creature comes again renewed, refreshed,
To lessen the colossal pile.
Hurrah'. I hear him shout from the housetop,
"Down with racism, greed, politics, nationalism
And all that crap;
Away with T V sets, the motor car, the washing machine,
The atom bomb and the damned computer,
and give me my beloved brother."
