COMMONWEALTH CAR IBBEAI
COMMUNITY *
Georgetown Accord Signed
A document, The Georgetown Accord,
is being signed today by all the partici-
pants in the Commonwealth Caribbean
talks with the possible exception of Mont-
serrat and Antigua. The Accord agrees
that the m o r e developed countries
(M.D.Cs) -will form a Commonwealth Car-
ibbean Community by August Ist, 1973.
(which date will be .kept as a West Indian
holiday) and that the less developed counr
tries(L.1.Cs), the Associated States,may be
phased into the community by May 1.,74.
Briefly this means the unification or pre-
sent common services, a united front 'in
dealings economicand diplomatic with the
rest of the world, and a common external
tariff with equalised fiscal incentives for
investment from outside, The LDCis
have bargained for greater.. jindus-
trial advantage ( W al E )

WHY THEY SUPPORT THEM . John Spector
To return to that question raised last week "why do sections of
the Dominica middle class now support the Labour, Leblanc or Shoe Party?"
I-think the operative word is'noW'. Those who join a.party which has
stated idealistic aims in its early days when the struggle for recogni-
tion is on,,are in a very different category from those who climb on the
band-wagon after the party has undergone considerable metamorphosis.
The early joiners, and. this particularly applies to intellectuals may
genuinely. feel that the poor and underprivileged. have had a..shab.yQsocial
dea.,, ^ha1a a t aw e reformers they will
b'e helping to change society and improve the lot of the majority. Some
of the best and most selfless members of the British Labour Party came
into this category, for they had nothing to gain and very often something
,.to! lose by their stand. None of the early Labour ,joiners in Dominica can
be estimated to have rallied beside the founders for this reason. In
fact, the middle clase, or the bourgeoisie as it is so often mispronoun-
cedly called, shunned the Party in its early days and almost every joiner
was & peasant, an underemployed or workless perbO'n, a person eager to
have a membership card because he was going to migrate to Britain and
felt it would be a key to Labour friendships there, .r an advantage-taker.
One oa two of those advantage-takers had the shrewdness to see that the
movement, so honestly started, --mld. grow, change its structure and
give them opportunities. Moreover a'e. word 'Labour' which is a password
or nickname. for almost all political' parties in the Caribbean, was then
beginning to become popular
It is also true to say that the Trade Union movement is bound by
its, very nature to support an early Labour Party. "A fair days pay
for a fair day's work" is, a maxim of both. The Trade Union joiners did
not therefore come under the categories; named above, save insofat as
its members were working-class peiar.s engaged in a battle for existence.
Alas, despite the ascendance 'of the so-called Labour Party in this land,
the. samne persons or their younger generations are still engaged in a
bitter struggle fol existence, for a roof over their heads and for
,,secuity- -- while the main industry, bananas, artificially. propped,
trembles in the balance.
And the biggest irony of all is; that a new dug-in ruling class has
been established with the biggest incomes for the least possible work.
The se people have come to tqa s.. wiLhisome-..of the- old middle c.lass. It
*is like'"'Gaorge 'Orewll satire. "All men are equal, but some are more.
equal than others."
The people about whom my reader inquired have one trait in common.
It is a curious sort of loyalty. They will support the Party they have
embraced even when it does wrong or harmful things, out of sheer self-
interest. That, and not the fact they are middle-class., is what makes
them different from the rest of us.

A bouquet for the Deputy Premier who seems, with the aid of Robert
*Bradshaw, Bramble and others to be putting up a fight for the LDCs against
the MDCs in Guyana. The Caribbean Economic Community idea. should
certainly be pressed forward, but not on the original terms of second-class
partnership. I trust that the Hon, Minister is conducting himself at
the Gonference with dignity and maturity, rather than the schoolboyish
giggling manner which he sometimes puts on in our own House of Represent-
atives. If only we had a Speaker who refused to put up with the bad
manners of the Ministers of Finance and Home Affairs, the affairs cf
the House would be worth broadcasting. As it is the gentlemen concerned
often turn the deliberations of that 'august assembly' into a farce.
When it meets next week to amend the The. Finance Act 1973 by exempt-
ing some of the spouses of Dominicans who are 'non-belongers' from the
$500 fine for- daring to marry a. born Dominican, I hope that someone will
point out that the whole business of reducing UK citizens to 'alien status'
is unconstit u tional (despite the wrong and absurd fact that an English
Government did not see fit to exclude the Associated. States from the
Immigration Act): two wrongs never..made a right. (concl p. 6)

DICTATORS AND THE PRESS
(Early this month the Inter uanorican Press Association Committooee on Freedom
of the Press mot in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Primo Ministor IIichael Manloy said
then that he gSav Press Freedom his outright support. This article is from
the Swiss Press Review).
It is the old problem again. One of the first things that dictators
do when they come to power is to control the press. They can't stand
criticism especially criticism which is shared with their subjects.
Critical journalists they describe as saboteurs, as people who want to
prevent the great tasks of national reconstruction which they usually
reckon they are about to achieve.
On the whole., they have absolute, power; so they find it relatively
easy to abolish the free, press. They can't suppress all criticismn, but
they can suppress the kind of criticism which gets printed and spread .
around the country on paper.
When they have done this, however, they often find that they have
to return to the criticisms which appears- in the foreign press --some of
it available in their own countries. The classic response to this the
one which has been used by the Communist countries for several generations
is quite simply to ban- foreign newspapers, or at least those which are
critical. In Eastern Europe and the; Soviet Union, you can buy, for
example, a. British newspaper on a newss:tand sometimes --put only the
Morning Star, the organ of the Communist Party, which is hardly, read at
all in Great. Britain. The. same is t'ue of all the Conmmunist newspapers
of the Western European countries.
This is the most effective and the most rational way to go) about
suppressing foreign press criticism. Its effect is of course limited,
because it does not treat the criticism at source., But Soviet leaders and
other communists are sophisticated enough to know that this is impossible.
Not so, other less experienced dictators, like Amin of Uganda.. They
nourish the thought that they can go right to the asurce of the criticism
and get rid of it there. They are so obsessed with their own absolute
power that they cannot understand why there should be other governments'
whidh do not possess this absolute power and harbour no wish to possess
it. They fail to realise that a Western European government is in no)
position to stop the press of its country from criticising them, even if
there ware :any wish to stop it,
The. latest example of this comes indeed from Uganda. President
Amin does not like the tone of the Sunday Telegraph, one of the British
newspapers still available in his country, at least to a limited degree.
He consider himself insulted by this respectable organ qf British public
opinion. So he starts thre.atoning: both the British Government in
general, and the Sunday Telegraph in particular, He says that if the
paper doesn't stop criticising him the few British remaining in Uganda
will have an even harder time of it. than they have had so far. "They
(the people who write in the. Sunday Te.legraph) should kno-t that they are
putting the; British personnel in Uganda into a very difficult situation.
The Uganca Goverarnt may take action".
Thereis no doubt an- expectancy on Amin;s part, based perhaps on his
happy experiences. in this respect in Uganda itself, that !the Sunday
Telegraph, and perhaps other British and European newspapers into the
bargain, will stop criticising him when they hear what he says. He
compounds his threats by saying that quite soon the ban on tourists in
gaenda will be lifted, but that if the criticism continues British
tourists will be; excluded from the general relaxation.
Amin, like other dictators, will have to learn the hard way that the
only way of stemming adverse criticism from abroad is; to stop the .news-
papers in question being sold in Uganda. He can't get. at the. critics
themselves unless they are foolish enough to go to Uganda while he is
still in power. And every time he tries to get at them from his residence
in Kampala he. will merely provoke more criticism and more derision.
