UNITED NATIONS ORGANISATION and DOMINICA NATIONAL DAY by W.S.Stevens
The U.N,0. thought that;-if it operated through six organs or bodies
(General Assembly, Security Council, Economic & Social Council,Trustee-
ship and Sec retariat, with of course the famous subdivisions such as
THE I.L.O. UNESCO, WHO, FAO) it might do better than its predecessor-
the League of Nations. It declared it would do away wzth'the conditions
which led to disputes by concentrating on problems like poverty,ignorance
disease and lack of resources and skill.,
Well, its General Secretaries up to 'the present one (Kurt Waldheim)
have. had it tough with recalcitrant. World Leaders, U.N. Membership in-
creased in view of its insistence on big powers giving self-government
to colonies: each country having an equal vote regardless of .size.
It is out of this aspect of the work of the U.N.O. that independence,
was achieved even by territories with small populations.
Dominica :reached internal Self-government in association with Britain
one step more being needed to achieve full nationhood. The U.iB.O. An-
niversary, October 24, and Dominica National Day, November 3, come:.pretty
close to each other. UNO is bedevilled by what is happening in the world
today: different types of warfare -assassinations kidnapping. with
attendant cruelties and inhumanities; hit-and-run raids, guerilla war-
fare .., these things-UNO CAN NOT control. Racial warfare will be a pro-
blem as long as various races exist, though it may diminish. So I back
the Russian,Nobel prizewinning author, Sblzhonitsyn: "It is an immoral
institution, relying on the ,mercenary partiality of the majority while
neglecting the *freedom of others....." (Concluded on page six)
"NATIONS, LEADERS and COMMANDERS by E.C.Loblack
-When we read the Story of Nations by Lester B. Rogers, Pay Adams
and Walker Brown, we see that the 'Hitler War' has opened the eyes of
all the peoples of the world except we Dominicans, If President Roose-
velt and' Prime Minister Churchill could come back to'life on earth and
ome to Dominica, they would cry because all ,the effort they put into
drawing up the Atlantic Charter for all Nations, as far as Dominica is
"concerned, seems to be wasted. I believe that for the past 15 years
Dominican leaders have refused to accept the Atlantic Charter, despite
the sacrifices the nations' of the world made to put down other aggres-
sive nations: it has all been in vain.
Let us bring back our,minds to what was preached at the Botanical
Gardens on many Sundays: Black Power ideas about peoples property,
which preaching and ideas have now manifested themselves actively in.
Dominica,. We must now go back and think of the kind of hatred, eniry,.
ungodliness, jealousy of those who have then propagated. All these aru
now manifest in'Dominica.
Mussolini was Commander-in-Chief .in Italy, Hitler took command in
Germany; Mr. Churchill put the burden of the war on his shoulders for
vJc-ory'; Stalin did not allow Hitler to see the 'gate of Moscow. All'
these r'Ten were tra.-ied men with high brain, but I am afraid that those
who ta~e colonelship, cr-taincy and lieutenant rank in this country.are
without training and must be opportunists.
People from Guadeloupe who came to Domin-ica to see our Natioial Day
Celebrations, at a glance they saw that if wvr the masses of Dominica
do not make the type of-sacrifices that are required: for our life, it
mightn't be very long when parents will run away and leave tleir families
,and children, and might never see them uAtil resurrection day.
