C I V IL -R E S IS T A NY:C E by a Special Correspondent (fr. p. 1)
S We would hope that every member of the Dominican community, in
every village, country district,. aid town, . 'prepared to play a part
in" the coming struggle. There are those who feel that such a confront-
a.tion, in which one side or the other must lose face, must be avoided
at all costs. It is up to these people,-'if they are sincere in their be-
lief, to-attempt to speak to those individuals on both sides who can
affect the conduct of affairs. When attempts have been made to mediate,
if it becomes plain that no, satisfactory settlement has come about and the
conflict cannot be avoided, people must reflect on the meaning of a gen-
eral strike and the changes which must come about as a result of it.They
must remember that in a democratic society, the people's voice must be
heard. Elections are. one way of making .opinions known; but you must not
think that they are the only lawful way. Strike action is a meaningful
and lawful way of voicing the opinions of the workers.
Prepare for a strike as you would for a hurricane. Shops may be
closed for some time, power and water may be affected. Accept the sacri-
fice as part of your duty as a citizen. You will need to provide:
(1) Enough food in the house for a few weeks.
(2) Supplies of staple foods (flour, beans, oil etc.)
(3) Candles, kerosene, cooking gas or charcoal, light bulbs, batteries,
first-aid kit.
(4) Cash in hand to cover emergencies and expenses.
(5) A full tank of gasoline for the car and an extra supply in case
of shortage.
(6) Drugs which any member of the family may need.
(7) A supply of books from the public library.
During a strike, observe these rules of good conduct:
(1) Be peaceful and reasonable at all times. As the President of the
C.S.A. has said, do not provoke the Police or Defence Force personnel
who are, after all, our friends, relatives and compatriots.
(2) Where it is necessary to be out after dark, move by twos. If you
are threatened or harassed., have a witness. Note all the details names,
numbers, time, place* Contact your lawyer, your union and your employer.
Make no statement before your lawyer arrives, As soon as you can, write
dovjn all the facts of the case as you know them.
(3) Keep informed Attend meetings, read the papers. listen to the
Radio News on all stations.
(4) a) Remain quietly at home with your family: do your exercises,
odd jobs, gardening reading, listening to music, enjoyingyour children,
,entertaia! g your friends perhaps to an 'old-fashioned' Dominican-style
party. (b) Pay all those long-neglected social calls especially to those
in need of moral support. (c) Go to the seaside or the country bathe
,in the river, catch cyrique and meet old friends, (d) Go to Church.
If you are supporting a strike, be prepared to give real support by
(1) Obeying the instructions of your union or association.
(8) Keeping your children at home, properly supervised. If teachers are
striking, give them your support.
('a) Wobk actively to keep up morale of fellow citizens by means of friend-
ly encouragement.
(4) Attend all union meetings and if you can, volunteer your help in union
activities.
(5) Boycott all Government offices, functions and services: Schools,
Public Library, Gov't HQ offices, Cocktail parties, Roseau Market,
Radio Dominica. Get in your stocks of vegetables and provisions
early, and arrange to sell your goods outside the 1-mile limit.
Urge business concerns to with-draw advertising from Radio Dominica;
listen only to midday news. Use the essential services Hospital,
Fire Service, Police and Courts, only where necessary. It would be
advisable that community organizations should arrange to provide
emergency services if it becomes necessary to close the regular ones.

tour of the Low CoAst housing, Area and had
the privilege. :of .going through some of
these houses being constructed by private
enterprise and I must admit though modern
in atyle they were not Very comfortable
as all the amenities were squeezed into a
small area making the houses extremely
hot. All the houses were of the same
style and I-was told that they could not'
be made more spacious as the people could
not afford to pay more for them The
monthly rental of those houses complete
with land ranged between $J 21 and $J 40

they became owners.. Ue were taken though

deterrent in this exroise hias .been the

outward repairs and the occupier for the

To assist further : -in' reducing'the
housing problem the government has given
attention to the placing of agricultural
based factories in the rural areas so that
the people of those areas* may find employ-
ment there and so lessen the influx of the
people to the city. .
The role of Education'has been consider-
ed vital-jih the scheme of things and Gov-
ornment has been oxamiiing its Education
programme and gearing it' t'meet the needs
of the society. The Goverhmant"realises
that the wealth of the country 'lies in its

training are seen as an -iitegral part of
the battle against unemploymo6at, government-
has consequently extended its training and

opinion that there'should be the same
kind of interpretive dances all through
the islands, far from that, but how-
ever, I do think that perhaps Mr.Rox
Nettleford 'could be encouraged to come
to Dominica during -the summer vacation
to give soine 'sumimeri classes to our"
various dance groups and other'persons
who may be interested. These groups
could be trained in the mere basic
techniques w hih could be put into our
national danced, thio belair and other
folk dances- and bring them to the level
of stage p6ttb-tancies. Part of the'
National'Sweepstake fund could boe uded
for financing theses classes. I am'of
the opihioh-rightly or wrongly that 'wi
concentrate tobouch on the citing
of discs of medio-e quality rather
than trying to reach a high standard
in the cultural field. _
I will nowF turn my thoughts to thae
Conference Sessions. At these Sessions-,
the delegates spoke strongly against
racialism. 'They" 'wre of the opinion
that we itn the 'Iest Indies should try
to overcome the idea of dwelling in
the past-'and seeking self pity, but
instead each island should try to
build up the best that can be found

others. ''We need it was said,'good
Statesmanship and Leadership, people
who put their country first rather
than themselves. They spoke strongly
against' that spirit of suspicion that
is present in the Leaders of today.
The subject of Trade Unions was also
brought upanid' the delegates expressed
regret that the officers of Trade
Unions do' not take time off to gd 'into

OUR WOMEN DRIVERS Hugh Lawrence
It is quite a while now since I
intended writing some sort of con-
gratulation to our women drivers.
When I read in your last issue
John Spector's article and also
some extracts from Ernest Merrils I
writings, I felt impelled to do so.
Very often we learn of car acci-
dents being caused mostly by male.
drivers, and hardly hear of any
such things by female drivers. I
remember a few years ago. three
families went up to the Eastern
District on a picnic; the husbands
drove up, but by late afternoon
the wives had to drive back home:.
It is really a wonderful sign that,
so many women can handle the wheel.
I always believe that the men do
all the hard drinking and care less
how they get home. Let's say:-

CIVIL RESISTANCE (fr.pages 1 and 2)
If a strike is called, that strike
depends on public support for its suc-
cess. If the people are firm in their
convictions of what is right for Dom-
inica, and are solidly behind their
leaders, the objectives of the strike
must eventually be met. In the event
of a successful strike no one can law-
fully be victimised.
When the strike is over, a .sense of
fair play must be shown by everyone.
Do not victimise or enact revenge on
anyone unjustly. Justice must be done
and those who have done wrong must be
judged by the Courts, and by the vote
of the people. Remember that we are
members: of a small society and that in
the long run we must learn to live, .
love and learn In fellowship together.


STAR INTERVIEW WITH CSA PRESIDEiNT
,(from page five)
STAR: What would you like to add
before we end this interview?
MAXIMEA: I would like to express
sincere gratitude to the thousands of
people all over the Island at all
levels who have shown that they can't
easily be fooled, that they are pre-
pared to make sacrifices to uphold
sound principles. Special thanks to
the STAR, the HERALD and the CHRONICLE.
for their support; to those foreign
newspapers, correspondents, radios etc.
who have assisted in whatever way they
could; and to our Solicitors without
whose assistance -- who'knows where
Symes, Savarin, Maximea (and many
others) would be, to-day?

CARRIBEAN CONSERVATION TO MEET .-ERE
On. September 28 at the Sisserou Hotel,
the Caribbean Cohaervation Association
will hold its regional get-together.
Hand-picked locals will be invited to
an open meeting; members of the Dom-
inica Conservation Society will'no
doubt play their part.
Britain has just made a grant of .
$142,094 for a forestry survey in this
Island.
Meanwhile, the man who knows most
about forests and conservation in the
State Mr. Christopher C. Maximea
whose interview with the STAR on CSA
matters is printed on -pages 5 & 6 -
has been compulsorily 'retired' and
cut off temporarily (we hope) from
being of fullest service to the Dom-
inica community in the subject for
which he was trained and qualified.
