By the establishment of a State of emergency
(renewed) Government loaded the dice heavily mi
its own favour in matters of propaganda. informa-

imagines holding a by-election without permission
for opposition public meetings? We know on good
authority that British officials take a poor view of el-
ections held under such conditions.lf su1h a hing

The outside world must be oQndering what sort of strange people
Dominicans must be when they hear that a State of Emergency exists eight
week~ or more after a. programtme assistant in the State-owned "Radio Dominid'
had been transferred to another post of lower grade and salary. That is
the impression, and the only impression which has been allowed to leak outt
from Dominica.
The facts are not, of course, quite so simple. The enthusiastic news
commentator, interviewer of youth and jazz buff, Daniel Caudeiron, joined
Radio Dominica because he. was interested in radio as a profession. His
ouQcess was immediate, and he became, as Papa Dee, a household name within
a year, not only in Dominica but also in the rest of the Eastern Caribbean.
It appears that his popularity posed a challenge of charisma to the Premiei
of Dominica who proceeded somewhat precipitously to act.
Without reference to the Public Service Commission Caudeiron was
issued from the Premier's Office a directive late on Pri ay afternoon,
June 7th, to terminate his work at Radio Dominica immediately; and report
to work as a clerk at the Clifton Dupigny Technical College on Tuesday
June 12th. The new job, as classified, was several grades lower and the
top salary lower than the minimum for his present job.
The issue was immediately taken up by the Civil Service Association.
The then Deputy Premier informed the officers of the.C.S.A. that the
Premier himself, as Minister responsible for broadcasting, would see them
on Tuesday morning (the Monday was a public holiday). They officially
registered a dispute according to the Trades Disputes Act requirement.
Messages were phoned, passed and written to the Premier that day by the
C.S.A. but no appointment could be obtained (the Premier claims that he is
always available), and the C.S.A. that night in General Meeting decided ,
that if they did not hear from him by 11 awm. the next day they would pro-
ceed to strike action. No answer.
In the meanwhile the youth of Roseau, devotees of Papa Dee, were try-
ing to organise a demonstration in his favour. The C.S.A. called the
strike, not on account of Caudeiron, but of the circumstances involved and
because they were refused the ppoDrtunity of -roper trade union negotiation
All essential services (hospital, fire service, doctors etc.) were informed
,that they were not, :'e.peat not, to strike.
After the walkout on the Wednesday, the C.S.A. officers succeeded in
seeing the Premier, whilst a crowd of young people demonstrated outs de
the Government Headquarters under the eyes of a posse of police armed with
riot batons (which were used on some unfortunates)). The alks with the
Premier (taped and later broadcast) were abortive. According to the tape-
recording the Premier stated that Caudeiron was only "seconded" and there
would be no loss of salary. It had not been drawn to his attention that
there would be loss of increments. In the meantime the three trade unions
and the Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce had declared a one-
day sympathetic strike (excepting the transport and loading of bananas).
The Defence Force was mobilised. All strikers, civil servants and indus-
trial workers alike, were instructed by their unions to stay quietly at
home and not provoke any incidents with police or defence force. Roseau
was as peaceful as a Sunday; beach and river picnics were the order of
the day.
On Friday the 15th the Emergency Powers Act was invoked, also the
Public Order Act. Regulations: were promulgated, allowing the State to rea-
trict the liberty of individuals, calling in all firearms and ammunition,
bombs and the like (:), requiring censorship of all news pertaining
to the State of Emergency and banning public meetings. On the Thursday
and Friday Premier Leblanc made three radio speeches telling Dominicans
about sinister plots, threats of violence and of a leaflet With subversive
ideas (given out to the demonstrating young people, and written by a small
group of intellectuals with Marxist views.) For a couple of days police-
men and defence force boys roamed about., armed to the teeth with automatic
weapons, bayonets and hand-guns. Leblanc's order to civil servants to go
tack to work by 8.00 a.m. on Friday 15th was largely ignored. (tonoldo 19)'

Daniel Caudeiron (Derck Walcott excep-

less than outstanding in his portrayal
of CORPORAL LESTRADE (evie that name

a well-cast link. Diniel's' acting and

Friday, August 3, 1973 THE Z T A R Page ine
(acnt. from p 2.) THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORX. ,... JOHN SPECtI R
A holiday was enjoyed by all, except the essential services, the
SSermanent Seqretaries and the strike-breakers at Radio Dominicca (who haA
to get the services of a British electronics enineeer working on the Police
Communications; network-to work the transmitters): one should perhaps add
to the list --Premier Leblanc, who stated over the radio "this is: like
the Gestapo, qnd people no more have any freedom".
On Thursday 21st June a special general meeting of the C.S.A. decided
to return to work the next day, having" exhausted all reasonable approach-
es to management", so that negotiations between Management and Association
could be resumed: a team of officials appointed by government were to meet
the C.S.A. members. These negotiations were brought to an abrupt end by
an- anouncomewit .1te team that they were not authorized to negotiate.
The strikers returned to their desks to receive letters from their depart-
mental heads telling them that their salaries.would be cut (unless a
reasonable explanation of their absiene was forthcoming).
Earlier, 'notices-had been served on'the three officers of the C.S.A.
The President (Chief Forestry Officer, Christopher Maximea), the
General Secretary Charles Savarin, and the Accountant General Osborne
Symes putting them under virtual house arrest. The General Strike had,
in the meantime, been called off. The three officers of the C.S.A. challenged the
constitutionality of the Order' in the Supreme Court. The Defence Force was stood
down.. Dominicans remained' calm
T he following week' Mr."Justice Renwick heard the case for the government, and
the three applicants cases were put during the week ending July 13th. On the fol.
lowing Tuesday the learned Judge delivered his verdict the Emergency Order was
constitutional, the house arrest and censorship were unconstitutional. The ban *
on public meeting; due to expire on June 30th was re-imposed" until July 17th. The
three civil servants under house arrest returned to their desks, got tremendous
welcomes from thqir colleagues and shortly afterwards were presented with letters
by policemen telling them-that the "house arrest" had been re-imposed I Also re-
imposed was the censorship. ..
'On July 12th the Ilouse of Assembly met, and Premier Leblano suddenly declared
an extension of the State of Emergency until August 15th. The next day Minister
of Finance and Development Ronald' Armour resigned his ministerial post (which also
included the job of Deputy Premier).
So, dear readers, why was a State of Emergency declared and then.further ex-
tended? Why was all the" fuss made? Why did Leblanc take it upon himself to trans-
fer one single individual" in the civil service? He now says "I wash my hands of
it; it is a matter for the 'Public Service Commission" -- what have they done to
improve the situation? Tothiig I Why?
There would be one good reason why there is an emergency. The fact that the
Treasury is empty. The cupboard is bare. All the Revenue has been swallowed up,
and it is only halfway through the year. I understand that the commercial banks
were nota.position to lend the Government money to pay the civil servants for
June on its:; own recognizance"- they had to get further guarantee for the overdraftl
That could be one good'reason.
Another good reason is that a by-election is due ext. month in the north-oast-
ern district (and a local government by-election in. Roseau). Public meetings are,
of course banned --but reports have it that meetings by other parties than the "
official opposition (The Freedom Party) are being held. A.General Election is not
to be ruled out either, especially since the ruling party's newspaper has announced
this week that government is increasing minimum wages for-daily paid workers (by
law) "effective Ioveboer Ist, 1973". A. snap election before Christmas ??
It appears, then, that anything goes. Kill the economy. Victimize the civil.
servants. Lie like hello Saddle private business with wages that are uneconomic,
Create more unemployment" DBlame the "Capitalist bosses" for the unemployment.
Blame the Banks for allowinL them overdrafts. Bring the whole country down around
their heads in such a colossal catastrophe that they hope no-one will notice who
made the mess in the first place. Then use your force"and violence to saddle the
poor little island with a dictatorship. Is that what we want.?
