CONGOLIDATING IGNORANCE: SIRING DISCONTENT by Androcles
The calculated discourtesy of the present Dominica Government to Dr.
Cheddi Jagan, Leader of the Opposition in Guyana, is the talk of the wble
island this past week. Once again is shown the evil propensities of the
regime which the people of Dominica so mistakenly brought upon their
heads eighteen months ago. If the population of this island would be so
ill advised as to continue to have the Leblanc Government in office much
longer, there would be little left of the prestige and, let me add, the
economy of Dominica.
It has been anticipated that, in defence, the Government will state i
that DrJagan was not allowed into Dominica because he is a Marxist. To
this there, will be two replies: (i) that in the present Government of
Dominica there is at least one Marxist who, though not of- the intellectual
calibre of Dr.Jagan, is a Marxist for all that and (2) that the same Dr.
Jagan was allowed to come in and lecture in Dominica two years ago without
any ill effect on the; population. In fact, the harbouring of a certain
West Indian Marxist by the present.Governnment until he showed personal
political ambitions is the closest we have come to Marxism. So this ex-
cuse, too, is out.
The real reason why the Government banned the Jagan visit so discourt-
eously'(of which more later) is simply and entirely because one of the
public lectures Dr.Jagan was scheduled to give was on the subject of the
Grenada Declaration which is the other namc"for the Leblanc irrational
desire to take Dominica into-political uiioni with Guyana. It is well
known that Dr. Jagan is against the union and, therefore, would have given
the peobe of Dominica more fuel for their firo. Even in Europe on the
visit he. has just been making, Dr.Jagan was recounting the many and real
ills now reining in that unhappy land of Guyana. After he had given his
lecture in Dominica, the population would, as it were, have had it from
the horse's mouth, close-questiohing him if necessary. For the main
arguments against political union With Guyana have been widely publicised
in Dominica. Dr.Jagan would have been able to add to the long list of
reasons. This does not suit the regime.
$tb once again is shown the hyperisy of the Government which has (as
'we' now see) falsely stated that it wished the widest possible discussion
of -the Grenada Declaration. What could better assist such discussion
than the view of the Leader of the-Opposition of Guyana itself who, at
the same time that he was, dOnied entry into Dominica was being allowed
into St. Lucia to lecture on the same topic?
We see-'alsb in this another example of the long-practised policy of
the present regime to keep the people of Dominica in ignorance. This
satanic policy has worked in the past and ig the reason why up to now it
has proved so difficult to get sense into the heads of the masses. Why
not. let the-people know all sides of a question?-See how the Government
broadcast and re-broadcast excerpts from a pro-union address by Mr.Cosie
Harris at a meeting some time ago not even under-Government auspices.
But because it is feared that Dr. Jagan will open the very few eyes still
closed in this matter, the Government bahs his coming here. Incidentally,
I understand that-the Black Power Movement, in whose name the lecture of
Mr. Harris was n1nounce-d, has manfully expelled the convener who, for
reasons known only to himself, unauthorisedly used the Movement's aus-
pices for that public meeting.
Next we come to, the proprieties of the method of the ban. It was early
in December that Dr.Jagan offered the local Extra Mural Centre to lecture
on the: two topics. one of which was the Grenada Declaration. Some of the
members of the Extra-Mural Committee, so well-acquainted with the Govern-
ment's low ways, insisted that before accepting the offer Government
should be. asked to say whether it would allow Dr.Jagan in, even though
two years earlier it had let-him lecture here on his Marxism. Dr.Jagan
himself had writted to Government itiforming them of hi proposal to lecture
here and asking whether the e was anv objection. is now known that
the Government never replied to br. Jagan, Concluded on page 4)

CONSOLIDATING IGNORANCE: SIRING DISCONTENT by Androeles (fr.page 2)
The unofficial members of the Committee of the Extra-Mural Depart-
ment, U.W.I., continued to press for the Government's answer to the
question, but no one appeared to be in a position to give the information.
It was therefore assumed that Government had no objection to the visit,
for if there had been (it was reasoned) it would have been the easiest
and most natural thing to say quite simply that Dr. Jagan was not allow-
ed into Dominica. This step would not have absolved the Government of
the charge of wishing to keep the people in ignorance: at least there
would not have been the additional charge of studied discourtesy to a
On Wednesday,16th February, Dr. Jagan took plane for Dominica to
deliver the first df the two scheduled lectures. There occurred one of
those queer coincidences with which recent Dominica life has been re-
plete: Dr. Jagan found himself on the plane sitting next to Miss
Eugenia Charles, President of the Dominica Freedom Party and also a
member of the Extra-Mural Committee which, as such, had been pressing
.for a Government reply about permission for Dr. Jagan to visit.
Now her worst enemies people like Patrick John and Earl Leslie -.-
would not accuse Miss Charles of consorting with Marxism. This they can
find closer home, in their Party. So in a civilised manner, Miss Charles
and Dr. Jagan got conversing until the plane touched down at Melville
Hall airport when, to the g great consternation and national shame of
Miss Charles, the Immigration Officer solemnly informed Dr. Jagan that
he had been instructed by the Government to refuse him entry into Dom-
inica to deliver his lecture. Miss Charles, for the sake of the country's
name, tried but failed to get the matter reviewed, Immigration merely
adding that it-had been in possession of such instruction since December.
Dr. Jagan went back into the plane, to the shame and with the apology of
Miss Charles, and continued to his St .Lucia assignment two days earlier
than scheduled, while the radio stations and newspapers of the region
gave wide publicity to this doing-of a Ya-Hoo Government. Small wonder
that Dr. Jagan described some of the Caribbean leaders as confused in
their thinking, when he lectured subsequently in St. Vincent.
Dr. Jagan has been and, a great possibility, will again be the
Prime.Minister of Guyana, a country to which our miniscule -brained
Government is wishing to lead us into union. Suppose the people of Dom-
inica were so silly as to permit this, what would be the position of
Dominica in a union of which Dr. Jagan was once again head? Has this
very obvious possibility ever occurred to the celebrities in Government?
Dr. Jagan was calculatedly and with malice aforethought snubbed and
insulted by the Government of Dominica. Leblanc and his minions are
forever running to Guyana on one pretext or another. Dr. Jagan is leader
of a powerful Party which, like other such parties, has its strong-arm
wings. 'Their Leader has been unnecessarily ridiculed in Dominica. Who
can tell? i
THAT COASTAL ROAD TO PORTSMOUTH who thought of it first?
We are indebted to Miss Marion Peter for a copy of her address at
a debate in Portsmouth in 1952, the other debater being Colonel Strong
and the chairman Dr. Robinson. Stating that she did not favour the
Transinsular road as opposed to the construction of a Leeward coast road
from Portsmouth and the North right through to Roseau, so that the vil-
lages of Dublanc,Colihaut,Coulibistrie, Pointe Ronde etc. would benefit -
having an overland route for porterage of their products Miss Peter
outlined how it would also assist the people of Marigot,Wesley,Vieille
Case, Calib.ishie and further afield. Pointing out that a roadth St.
Joseph already then existed and that its continuation to Portsmouth would
cost far less than the "new"Transinsular Road contemplated, and for less
.money, Miss Peter sharply pointed out the disabilities to Doctors and
officials etc. travelling by seabaetween toasjier narrative proves that
the intention of a new road to Roseau was there long before 1957.

THOUGHTS ON WEST INDIAN UNITY by R.H.L. (Part II)
(concluded from last week's STAR)
Assuming that the island territories were prepared to swallow
their prTde and forget their rejection of any' degree-of external control
in return for a voice ih the conduct of the mainland government in much
the same way as the French overseas departments have, would this be per--
manently acceptable to Guyana?
'We have one interesting historical link with Guyana. It was in
Guyana that the settlement of the West Indies.had'its start. Thomas-
Warner went there first in 1604 before establishing the mother colony
of the British West 'Indies in St. Kitts. But that was long before the

It is clear from the history of all West Indian and other federal assoc-

To return to Mr. Louisis faith in some forr of collective agreement,

"rom the mini-States have gone down
there to celebrate too.
Last Saturday Abdul Malik (one-
time Michael X, former Black Power
leader in London) left for Guyana
where he and his family were guests
of the Guyanese Govt. during Repub-
lic events. Twelve hours after the
Maliks left their $00,00 house at
Arima (last Saturday) it was myster-
iously burned down.
On Feb.22, some three days later,
Trinidad Police unearthed the body
