Ccm-menting upon the latest Watergate development- over Lond.on' s BBC
this week, a speaker said "'Mr. Nixon and his advisers have got hopelessly
out of touch with the real world". The .same aplies. in.a mini-way to Prem$-
ier Leblanc and his..advisers, as is exemplified by the latest puerility of
an editorial in the official party organ. This .,editorial^ proposes the abo-..-
lishment of the- present -Dominica -Civil -Service and. the. engagement of a Civil
Service, subservient to -the ruling party s interest na"contract basis'
renewableL-after each general -eTection". The edit r cited as can exanple
President Nyerere in Tanzania who overcame his shortage, of civil servants
by engaging non-Tanzanians on contract pending the training and education
of his own people." Tribalism-and illiteracy also caused Julius; Nyerere to
opt for the one-party state a- condition of affairs which in no way ap-
plies to Dominica. The whole idea is so palpably absurd for us that one can
only assume that. this-latest example of 'political banditry' is merely a
childish attempt to -intimidate any waver ers in the Civil Service Association
from supporting,,their executive in its fight against the undemocratic-
Civil Service Act which was signed last week by the Governor gazettedd, Oct.
18, 1973). Itis interesting that Mr. Leblanc s advisers come out with
this sort of taradiddle on the same day that the Public Seovice Internation-
al report vehemently on the terms of. the said Act to the Foreign & Common-
wealth Secretary and to the International Labour Organisation.
What Dominicans should realise is that the system whereby the public
service becomes dependent as an elective office is .the same system that is
in force in nearly all ,States in the U.S.A. Every three years the civil
servants or functionaries (from the chief of police to the/scavenger) are
liable to demotion or loss of job at the whim of-a newly-elected band of
politicians. The corruption, .nepotism and "pork-barreling" which results .
therefrom) has been documented over the last century in documents of the
courts of law, newspaper reports, and even detective novels,. and. has cul-'
minated in the reckless sand irresponsible lack of morality'and integrity
uncovered by the. senate investigation into the behaviour of the President
of the United States of America and the acts of his advisers. Impeachment
of MDiLI. Nixon is pending and is possible on the charge of "criminal conspir-
acy to defeat the. ends o'f Justice". Do we want such a thing to happen here?
As for the Educator's talk Of rebellion' 6,. "to be put down by force
at any cost" this is just sheer provoking nonsense which, should scare no
single peaceful Dominican from using- his rights of freedom of speech and -
assembly to defend those very rights, enshrined in .our .constitution and
now beimg threatened by little men in order that they can remain in power
until they die of old age surrounded by their ton-ton macoutes' and their'.
panoply of ower.. .

The name Israel signifies "He who

Holy Book pertaining to Israel and it
would take up much space in your small

some of them .'

The Rally being organised by the Dominica Civil Service Association
is a legitimate expression of concern, dissatisfaction and rejection of
the manner in which Government as an employer seeks to treat Civil Servants
who are not only employees of the State-but citizens as well.
A RALLY in. any form is an assembly, a getting together of persons for
some specific purpose usually to observe some significant occasion or to
dedicate themselves to the achievement of some specific goals in the future.
Rallies, public processions, protest-marches are all legitimate act-
ivities which citizens of a democratic state can participate in without
interference from any person whatsoever, as long as such rallies, public
processions or protests conform with the laws of the land pertaining to a
breach of the peace.
That a rally organised by the Civil Service Association is not an
illegal act is borne out by the fact that the Commissioner of Police has
raised no objection and has given official approval to the route proposed
by the Association for its procession through the streets of Roseau.
The selection of National Day for ,such a rally is significant in that
the rally is intended to focus attention on the erosion of the civil lib-
erties of public officers and other citizens of the State by the el-ected
representatives of the people. If National Day is intended to commemorate
national liberation from colonial rule and the assumption of full sovereign
authority over the internal affairs of the State by elected representatives
of the people of the State, then what bettor day is there but the said N1at-
ional Day for the people of the State to express their concern at the con-
duct of those elected representatives.
- The theory of the 'Divine Right of Kings' was buried with the beheaded
remains of Charles I of England ini 1649. Constitutional Democracy .ensures
that certain basic rights of the individual are safeguarded. The erosion of.
those rights is the severeost breach of the constitution which a Government
can .ever be guilty of. Any attempt therefore by any authority to interfere
with the right of the individual public officer to participate freely on a
non-working day in the legitimate activities of the only trade union which
can legally claim the right to represent his interest must be regarded as
a further encroachment on the rights of the individual of which the perpe-
trators of the Civil Service Act are guilty.
The Education Division and certain Heads of Schools, the Medical Divi-
sion and the Nursing authorities must understand that the participation by
teachers, nurses (and firemen as well) in National Day activities outside
their normal working hours is entirely voluntary and they should desist from
using threats in an attempt to coerce teachers and nurses to perform any duty
which they could not reasonably be expected to perform on a Saturday and on
public holidays.
The attendance at a parade at the Botanic Gardens or the serving of
refreshments at school on a public holiday is not a duty. The people of
Dominica must therefore frown on those public officers in high places who
seek to force teachers and other off-duty public officers to attend at their
posts on November 3rd unless such attendance is entirely voluntary. There
can be no question of duty since pay, at overtime rates, is not one of the
conditions for attendance.
On the other hand, the few public officers who willingly report for
any kind of special duty on this day when their union, the C.S.A., is pro-
testing this most repressive measure taken against them by Government, must
bow their heads in shame whenever they meet people in the streets, in ack-
nowledgment of their betrayal, their cowardice and their spinelessness.

The people of Dominica can play their part by keeping their children
at home while the older students (potential civil servants) can decide not
to attend the official functions and come along to the Goodwill Parish Hall
to participate in the CoS.A. Rally which starts at 7,30 a..m. and goes on
all day to 6.00 p.m. C.A. SAVARIN,

SERVICES INTERNiATIONAL from 25-30 Holborn Viaduct,London E.C.I, and copied
to Mr. George Foggon, Overseas Labour Adviser Foreign & Commonwealth Ofice:
Dear Sir, We have been informed by our affiliated union, the Dominica Civil Ser-
vice Association, of. the introduction of the Civil Service Act 1973. On behalf of
the Public Services International, we wish to lodge the strongest complaint that
this Act contravenes, in several respects, Convention 387 of the International
Labour Organisation-, and is' therefore a. clear breacli of established industrial re-
lations practice.* The prohibition placed on certain members of the civil service
under Sections 12 and' 25 i*a, in our opinion, a clear breach of Articles 2 and 3 of
Convention 87. The'require eits placed on unions under Section 28 and Schedaule 4
are, in our opinion, an infringement of Article 3 of Convention 87.* Our Intor
national, which represents four and a half million employee in the: public service
throughout the free world, considers these branches of ILO Oonvention 87 to be of
auch a. serious naturoethat tib will lodge a formal complaint to the Committee" on
Freedom of Association of the ILO, with which we have formal recognition.'* "e ro-
grot having to take this step but wish to keep you informed before doing so.
Yours faithfully,
19th October, 1973' CA!RL U. FP-AITKEN,Gonoral Secretary.

A L L of DOMINICA will be coming to the Goodwill Parish Hall
Grounds on Satuvdy, November 3rd, 1973.
IT'S a whole day affair from 7.30 a.m. in the morning to 6.00
o'clock in the evening.
THE C.S.A. RALLY is the biggest coming-together.. of Dominica people.
THE PROGRAMME FOR THE DAY includes satirical performances from 8.00
a.m. to 9.00 a.m.;address by C.S.A. officials and invited guests from
9.00 a.m. to 11.00 a.m. and an afternoon of Calypso singing, steel band
playing, Swingstars grooving till 6.00 p'*mo

GASOLINE PRICES: fr. page one .!
All Big-3 Companies are economising -
no painting of tanker trucksreduded
maintenance, etc. etc. With reduced
gasoline, trucks will not run regular-
ly and maybe even the 14,000 gallons
of gasoline which government reserves
for essential services (GDC, Police &
Fire Services) may not be available to
them. Taxis will not run and tourists
may no4t come. Unemployment is increas-
ing by the hour, and soon crime will
increase even more .

And government ministers and civil.
servants sit back in their chairs and
say "bring gasoline in at our price
or Dominica will go without; the con-
sumsr cannot afford a whole 1-00 extra'"
Lot the consumers speak for them-
salves. If they do not speak up now
(aind even now one cannot buy gas) -
and tell. this government to pay heed
to the wants and desires of the com-
munity, then Dominica is finished in
yet another direction. Our backs are
to the wall"
