T HE GREAT CONVENTION by ANDROCLES
Thousands of Dominicans from every part of the island, at con-
siderable -sacrifice to themselves in cost and, in some cases, discom-
fort, ,travelled tb ea buthern point to hear the affairs of their
c-ountry discussed, ant analysed at the Dominica Freedom Party Conven-
tion held in Graid"Bay last Sunday. About 3,000 persons attended -
some' half listening outside, having failed to gain admittance to the
filled Hall of the new Canadian gift school. No reporter from Radio
Dominica attended, but a report from Freedom HQ reached the air on
Tuesday at noon, by arrangement,
.I would like to suggest that the organizers"of the Freedom Party
Convention now offer Radio Dominica their recordingsof the speeches
made on that great occasion, to give the whole State the opportunity
of listening to those high-standard and mind-opening talks by Mr.
Ronald Webster, the saviour of Anguilla; Mr. Jan Carew of world fame;
our silver-tongued Alvin Armantrading; popular Ed Scobie and the
others. The condition should be that there be no editing of the texts
of the tapes by Radio Dominica. If they do not accept on these terms,
once again we ..shall have ,proof of the Government's desire to stifle
knowledge .and truth,
I now give the text of a/Resolution unanimously passed by the
vast throng at the Convention, as moved by a Freedom member from
Portsmouth:-
WHEREAS the Opposition has never been allowed to present their
point of view 6n national matters to the people of Dominica on Radio
Dominica; and WHEREAS the Opposition represents not less than
45% of the voting population of Dominica; and WHEREAS it is essen-
tial and necessary for the understanding of matters pertaining to the
State that the populace be presented with all points of view; and
WHEREAS in spite of-various efforts to have time allotted to the
Opposition for expression of their views on matters of importance
to.the people of the State the Government has persistently refused
to allow the Opposition such time;
BE IT KNOWN that the people as represented by this Convention
wish to make known their indignation aria take a serious view of such
refusal; and.
BE IT RESOLVED that the Opposition once again requests of
Government time on Radio Dominica to present their views as regards.
matters affecting the welfare of the State.
S : *
It may be noted here that a distinguished guest present said he
had never seen such a big and animated gathering of people at any
annual convention or A.G.M.; and the same gentleman was amazed at
the great number of women who made it their business to attend
Three other vital resolutions moved and passed by a forest of
hands concerned the desperate state of the banana industry, the econ-
omic condition of Dominica, and controversial and unsatisfactory
legislation which blamed "most of the unrest and troubles in this
State...culminating in the stormy events of Dec.16th 1971" on bad,
rushed and vindictive legislation -- naming among other laws which
should be deleted or erased from the statute books of Dominica The
Seditious and Undesirable Publications Act; the Aliens Land Holding
Act; Roseau Market and Town Council Acts which helped to precipitate
a crisis; and others. There is, of course, more t say on these
matters. Meanwhile the resolutions are being forwarded to the
Government.
And for those who are interested in fine points of manners ahd
protocol, God Save The Queen was played and spontaneously sung by the
big gathering, who joined in the Dominica National Song afterwards
with the same zest and good will. (Continued ol page four)

A N D R CLE Cont. from p.2
To my mind, the greatest casualty
in the St.Mary's Academy issue has
been the prestige and reputation of
the Dominica students on the Mona
Cave Hill campuses of the Univere
sity of the West Indies.
Whenever the matter is discussed,
there is general agreement that'
the part played by those University
undergraduate (and at least .one
graduate prompting them on) has
been the silliest and most harmful
thing in the whole of this unfor-
tunate episode. For some reason,
many people expected a higher stain-
dard of thought and reasoning from
the University students. Now they
know better.
Even the Government-appointed
Committee of Enquiry did not take
the campuses seriously, particu4
larly their offer to giVe up their
studies to come and teach in a new
State-directed secondary school.
As one wit put it, these students
were offering to come anid teach
what we have sent them to learn
but which they have not yet learned,
Another thing which has unfavourably
impressed the public is the utter
disregard.for truth of some of
these people, Although they know
otherwise, they have continued to
base their stand on the untruth
that the troubles began when a pupil
was expelled for wearing an Afro
hair-style. People have also not
been impressed by the undergraduates

secondary education directed, not
as you would expect at the State
authorities which lay down educat~ri

of a private school aided from State
funds, I understand on good autho-
rity that the Academy with a
slightly larger number of pupils
cost us, the taxpayers, '$100',000
less ner annum than the Government-
owned'Grammer School, The view is
widespread that the attitude of the
campuses. is poor recognition indeed
for a contribution of this magnitude
on the part of the former St.Mary's

ACCIDENT TO POLICEMAN

Another. YView of -rPEAK BROTHER SPEAK
by Marie Davis Pienme

I would like to share in the'compli-
ments showered on Mr. CaudeironA the
Playwright, and the members of the
cast for a very good stage performance
of the play 'Speak Brother Speak", but
in doing so I would think it remis
on my part if I did not comment on
the relativity of the play to our pre- .
sent-day trend of thought. The following
were my observations.
We saw in the play the main character,
a very able performer (Mr.Lenn6x Royer)
speaking to his Black brothers, trying
to reach out td them to join forces
with him in fighting their cause Black
Identity. Buit despite his dynamism and
strong views on the matter, the end'
all was a confusion of ideas because of
the stumbling block that existed the
level of'intelligence of those hlack
brothers. For some of them this cause
meant aggressiveness towards the whites;
for others it me.nt idly standing round
the fouri corners, free love, indulging
in pot, and simply doing their own
thihg.
How true to life is this today, where
in a contusion of idea ie are stripping
ourselves bare of all that can help us
to gain our Black identity whilst
holding oi to the superficial things in
order to be different. If we only paused
to ask ourselves in what way should ue
be different, iould the answer not be
in human achievement, which is the
product of: thought applied to work
thereby efiabling us to compete with the
white maan
The play again takes us to a scene
where we see a white dance instructor
tecidhing the Black brothers some dancing
techniques, but eventually what happens.?
-the Black brothers are left to do their
own thing as the ihite instructor loaves
in disgust because he could not get them
to discipline their minds and body to
achieve the high standard that ia--re-
quired. How true is this in todayts
thinking, .when we so freely accept and
imbibe all the substandard things imw
ported from outside and reject that
which would lend richness to our own
creations.
We again see in the play the Black'
brothers, in their confusion of ideas,
regarding Christianity as not being
relevant but on the other hand wor-
shipping an African idl .

My little experience can help you to understand why'somo people keep drawing
and painting pictures all through their lives, and why, as children, we have
such a.lively interest in drawing. As most of us girw uhp and learn what life
really is about,,, we find it less exciting and we w. only interested'in drawing

in innocent childhood.

"POVERTY IS MY SICKNESS, FATHER:" From BOUZAILALELA
(Parish Bulletin)
This was the answer to my question: "What is the matter with you?".
I found her sitting on her bed in the little house that she rented for
three dollars a month. The house was ee'aen feet wide by twelve feet
long. Five children of primary school age lived with her. Four of
these children and a bigger one living with someone else were of the
same father, but the man didn't seem to know that these children
existed.
"Why don't you take him to court for child maintenance?" I asked.
"Ah Father;" she replied "Where then will I live? How will I be able
to walk on the streets? How will I be able to go to work if I get a job?
He will kill me, 'he had said so my name is written on his peri-knife.
See Father, (and-she pulled off her nightie from her shoulder) seer'the
wound on my back, he gave it to me. I know he will kill me. I prefer
to suffer now than to take him to court.
"Father, I have neither front nor back, no one to stand by me or
for me. I can hardly speak Ehglish, and can neither read nor write, I
have only one old cutlass in the corner to help me, I used to workeon
the roads, now there is no work, and even if there was how can I work
with this asthma? One person whom I thought could help is our parlia-
mentary representative, but he is just a hollow 'poteau pourri...
"What do you mean by this ma'am?" I interrupted.
"Well father, if you lean on a rotten post it crumbles, and you fall
with it, it is too weak to support your weight. He sent me to Simon,
to Patrick John, to Armour. I went to the building, but Armour was
always too busy to see me. I know that Patrick John will understand me,
but I still Ieed someone to back me. So I am just there 'a la miserit
corde de Dieu'. Father, I have asthma, I have it bad, you can hear
how I am breathing, my back and my chest seem to become one sometimes,
but Father, M REAL SICKNESS IS POVERTY".
The woman said many other things, things to make one's heart break.
What I said to her and did to her and gave her will remain my secret,
but it brought a certain amount of comfort to her, and she asked God
to blesp me. I wish to say that this is far from an isolated case in
that island of ours.., there are many people like 'this who live right
in the middle of all of us. Many of them call on the priests, as this
lady did, and I know that the priests, white or black alike do a lot
to help them, do more than anybody else, the only thing is that THEY
.IEVER BLOW THEIR OWN TRUMPET, The amount of good that is being done by
priests, nuns and brothers in Dominica will never be known by, any
except Almighty God.
BLACK BROTHERS of Dominica, you are concerned about freeiig BLACK
PEOPLE, you sell 'accras' and 'pudding' on the streets to 1iAberate
blacks from Rhodesia. Do you realise that there is a place called
Salisbury in Dominica too? and that BLACK people live there? You want
to go to Mozambique, to South Africa. Just take a close look at those
who are suffering right under our noses, not from the white man, but
from BLACKS like themselves. WHY DON'T YOU SELL YOUR ACCRAS.TO HELP
THEM? TO FREE THEM?...
Instead, you want to ramsack those who are doing something for them..
The cry of this unfortunate lady, one of many, is ringing in my ears,
as it should in yours..."POVERTY IS MY SICKiESS"...
by Father Edward Alexander.
