(Pari I) DOMIN ICA RE V VI SITED by Pierre Lucette
As a-lover of Dominica for twelve years, having forged strong links
with many people here, and being a Wopt Indian myself(a journalist, a
teacher, a radio producer) I think that I have broadly the right to .6om-
municlte some of nmy reflections on revisiting your island, .
Several people here consider Ua*-i ique as a successful island (much
more so than Dominica) on the road. t' progress and prosperity, and dream
about leading Dominica on to a sdmilOir standard: Martinique with more than
20,000 cars, numerous 20-floor buildings, large roads and highways, hotels,
cinemas, ballrooms, schools, two university faculties, prostitutes, police
shooting at.workmen, murderers, ktidnppers, high speed, marijuana, bread-
fruit at 50 cents, avocados at 60 cents, social security and many other
"luxuries"; evoa the hope for 70,000'young people under 18 to expatriate
themselves to Prance if they want to.-earn a living.; dying banana and sugar
industries, and more than 70% of the necessary goods imported! Progress
and prosperity; a sparkling rutila.i-. face under the tropical sun, but with
so many cracks: Martinique* .
It was 18 months'since my last trip to your island, and do you know
the first shock I got, going around and liming along the streets? You have
only a very few white people here d. Dominica belongs to Dominicans. I
imagine that some readera-cre lifting up their eyebrows starting, to think
that'I am a'racist black power brother." Better light the lantern right
aw*p. If I went~ so far in the aboQe reflection, it is because every day
at home in Martinique I see -gew whife: invaders, and in the shortest, time
they fill their cash-boxes with enormous profits which they export swiftly
with the help of the government, an 4pl-ying on the naivete6" and sensi tli
of a pleasure-loving population.
Lo since the 17th century, Martinique has been bleeding and one can ask
oneself how somebodycan3 survi- givi -h-wn ood wthoi g -
things to recor.atitute his balance. a4ad well being,
But you in Dominica have a place of your own, so green, so rich It
natural beauty, and it is a mug& for each of you to cherish your mountain-'
ous forests, your soil and rivers, and tolpreserve them all. Don't imagine
that I want to keep Dominica from the road of progress, but you should think
deeply before you choose to introduce here industries and new ways of
living, which will victimize you if ypu do not handle them very carefully.
Progress is a right for all of us, but only if it does not change our bal-
ance and modify our personality.
In this aearoh for an identity, I saw that some of your young people
cover their head with knit caps (tams). Let us- be frank; this kind of "bon-
net" is too hot for our climate, our sunny climate; if young people think
they must wear a hat to advertise their new personality, they have to think
about it more deeply; it would be vpry interesting to have reports done by
some medical specialist to know how TAny people suffer from headaches and
how many Phensics have been sold sipce the introduction of that kind of hat
here.. I do appreciate all the different Afro haircuts and combing ways,
but some young people think that siace they are Afro-combed, they can dis.
pense with having their hair clean.! Is it necessary to let them remember
that Africans, even when they paint their body and hairs with mud, are clean,
people? It is good that our young people conib Afro, but in so doing, have
they preserved their joy of living?' I have seen so many and faces around -
town, and the laughs are so rare, I did not even see a happy-looking crowd
of fans jumping up during Jimmy Clifffs tunes outside Palm Grove. Is it
old style to jump in front of a nigfi club? Or is it lack of money and lack
of employment the whole answer to tht4 gloom? Those aggressive and gloomy
faces, are they part of the new identity of the young Dominicans?
I heard about some racialist eygnts and attitudes; most of them do not
seem to be justified, and are evidently behaviour of a few freaks who do not
seem to know a dammed word about &eritude. (Concluded on tage 7)

motion of censure of the Speaker in the Hoii6seof Assemribly: last. Wednepda
21st August. .. .- :'-
The meeting got off to :,a late 4t4rt, wi-tht eptepty, Speaker (Hon.
Cleve Tavernier) in the chairi.- t. Was evident-hat'Mr. R', OP. :Armour-. wag
expected on the opposition side of the House Chamber; his-seat was removed
from the Government side .- and transferred to*the 'opposite side. .Mr.
Armour, however, strolled: in -rather late, and occupied the ,vacant seat o0
Mr. C. Tavernier (Deputy Speaker), :uch to the annoyance of QGoernmeit mel-
bers.' (During .the. morning; intermission, Mr -Armour dramatically moved his
seat from the opposition s.d.e' tp its usual..place ) :- ..- - -
'Later on in the proceedings, Poemiier Patrick John objected to 'U.,
Armour seating on the Govtj. :ide of the House., arguing that he was no long-
er a member :of Government since, he -as no longer a Labour Party Member,. .;He
,was referred, to as "the delinquent back-benchero". Mr.Armour, in defence,
insisted that he had every right to sit on. the Government side, arguing
/that when he was elected, his constituents Voted him into that position.
He further insisted that there should. be a general election to decide on
the matter. -Mr. Armour remained on thp-Government back-bench.. throughout
the session. .The two Government members, almost came to blows during the
stormy. verbal battle, '
.* .*
Speaking-- on thea censure motion, Mr. John claimed that he, "could not
defend the Speaker!' but -went -on-. to. 4ap a .striiig of accusations on Mr.
Armpour, He "revealed" that Mr,..Armour, as Minister of Conmunication ana
-Wo rtks in-the-late --i ti-es, --acaed-n-ti w-resten sC- was
permitted to increase rates even. whep there was no justification for such
an increase. (This in fact was no revelation, since the Freedom Party and
Mr. W.S. Stevens exposed that irregularity during the 1970 campaign. Oddly
enough, Mr. John .and his colleagues defended Mr. .Armour then.)
The PREMIER went on to list the many assets (land & building) of the
Armour family* (Strangely enough, the opposition has frequently pointed out
that situation; and again Mr. John a;d his: fellow-miinisters and party cam-
paigners then defended Mr. Armour.)
Mr. John repeated in the House on Wednesday what the opposition had
exposed long ago. He tried to show .ow Mr. Aimour was involved in r ey
controversial financial deals while je was a Minister. 'Among -those met ion-
ed were: a $10Q,000, duty refund to the Douglas faftihy p'f Portsmouth for the
construction of the ARBIElEE cinema. (The opposition exposed this, irregui
clarity long ago, and Mr. John and hii colleagues defended Mr, Armour then);
.that Mr. .Armour rented a Government Rouse at the Morne for $120.00, while
his Canefield House was rented. out t4 v. Government contractor for an exho'Xbi-
tant sum.' (This was also nothing new, -The opposition frequently said thcis
publicly, but again, Mr. Armour waa defended. by Mr. John and. Labour,._arty
colleagues);reception of a CODBB.' lo1n by the Armour family, even, when as
/a member of the House of .Assembly, .h. was not entitled to'such a loan.
4h* l. Ohn went onto make the mi4ounded. political point, that as a re-
sult of the $300,000 loan obtained b b ihe Armour family, the small farmers
-who needed the money would not b.e able .to get it. The fallacy of the argu-
ment was exposed by the Hon, Third N minated Member.
,It was also confirmed by the Premier that opposition charges of favour-
itism in the allocation of lots at Cqefiel-dn were true; the issue was raised
by 1r. Ekin- Henry- -in. the House in-1968. (Again, Mr. John and his party
colleagues ,had defended Mr. Armour on thh harge}.
One wonders what revelations are yet to be made.
