Charged with the murder on Feb. 26 of a
friendly American who came here to enjoy
our carnival festivities, Desmond Trotter
(20) and Roy Mason(.2) were placed
under arrest. Trotter who had recently
suffered acid burns when alleged to have
been making an explosive, is in hospital
under guard. Mason, who gave himself up
in the company of his lawyer Mr. Brian
Alleyne, 'has been remanded in custody,

Liberation Movements
and Crininality
Recently The Vincentlan. received a communication
from the National Joint Action Committee (NJAC) of
Trinidad condemning alleged denial of justice to Junior'
"Spirit" Cotte of the Black Liberation Action Com-
mittee (BLAC) of St. Vincent, who has been sentenced
to death for the murder of Acting Attorney General, Mr.
Cecil Rawle, last May..
NJAC claims that "the puppet Govemrment of St.
Vincent had no moral authority to take the life of any
Black man Involved in the struggle for the- Liberation of
hia people'. NJAC seems to be under a number of
misconceptions. (1) Whether you like It or not the
Government of St. Vincent was elected by the people of
St. Vincent according to the democratic procedures
under which the country operates. (2) The judicial
service is not subject to the domination of the poll-
ticians. (3) A mixed jury of 12 men and women and not
the Government found Cottle guilty. (4) Cottle had, and
used, the right to appeal against the verdict and the
reserved judgement of the West Indies Associated
CStates Court of Appeal is awaited. (5) The fact that
0 Cattle is Black cannot affect the course of justice. (6)

(Guest Editorial concluded from p.1)
There seems to be a growing teridency for radical
organisations to encourage or commit act; of criminality
in the name of liberation movements. Murder and k!d-
napping of Innocent people, hijacking of aeroplanes,
arson, robbery are all being undertaken by individuals
and groups for their own seltfsh ends, and then it is
sought to justify the actionS-by shouting "Liberation".
The true Liberation Movements of the World require
a way of life, not spasmodic vloienc against the weak,
defenoieipss or unsuspecting. The true Liberation
Movements have our utmost respect and sympathy, even
though somewhere in the struggle, unfortunately, tho
shedding of blood often becomes necessary. But we re-
gard it as an Insult and Infamous detraction from their
Ideals to associate dastardly acts with their motives.
There are doubtless a number of reasons for which
the hanging of Cottle could legitimately be condemned
by individuals or groups. For example disagreement with
capital punishment; knowledge that he was not given
the opportunity of a proper defence, If such knowledge
exists; knowledge that the iury: was "packed", agalpn
If such knowledge exists. None of these things is
claimed and we cannot agree with the implications that
his colour and the fact that he belongs to a "Liberation
Action Committee" entitle hlmmto exemtptionr from the
penalties of breaking the laws of his country.
The habit often adopted by criminals of jumplft 0f
the band-wagnemt movemernts a0d4 n eots is unfortunate*
The Rastafialan sect In Jamaica suffered badly from
this. While the uneaterprising attitudes bf the sect are
detrimental to aojwted economic principles, it is
essentially peaceful leather than violent. Certain of Its
outward facets wer6 adopted by the criminal element to
put the whole mov0'int in disrepute arid establish un-
scrupulous actlviikt8 withih Itsftlks.
No thinking plsdo can deny that much In our society
requires correction. The extrerde social and economic
disparities, Ite 41.otillsation, the musea of powbr, thie
scortm tigttIn aweere men and women i n various
aspects pof our *ts(i*tyl But the IAtiatltn .ti not be
corrected by murder or any other fitony. Neither Oin
the substitution of one prejudice for another help. Iit
the struggle.for the rights of man it must be remembered
that Justice is Absolute.

A royal palm alone
Leafless and 'branchless.
- Seen, but yet unknown...

Giftus R.

No one regards me now
Nor do they gaze at me;
Only a poet remembers
The once graceful palm tree.
In years alas gone by
I was a pillar of admiration
Swaying as I was photographed
By visitors from each nation
But now all beauty's gone,
And I have become old
So here I stand alone
First scorched, then wet and cold.
Children no longer gather
Nor do the sweet birds nestle
My life goes on no farther,
Ceasing without a rustle.
