 Notes
Summary: Struggle was published first as a mimeographed newsletter in 1974 when the Workers Liberation League was formed. It was edited by Rupert Lewis and he continued as editor when Struggle became the organ of the Workers Party of Jamaica in 1978. In the 1980s editors included Elean Thomas, Elaine Wallace and Ben Brodie. The Workers Liberation League grew out of the political initiative of academics - Trevor Munroe, Rupert Lewis as well as Don Robotham, Derek Gordon who studied in the University of Chicago in the early 1970s and were connected to activists in the Black Panther Movement and African-American radicals in the Communist Party of the United States. The latter group formed the Paul Bogle League which brought together academics, working class and community activists who read and discussed Karl Marx’s Capital and Lenin’s political writings and sought to build on Jamaica’s radical traditions in the trade union movement and in the People’s National Party from the 1930s to the 1960s. The Paul Bogle League was also involved with the formation of the University and Allied Workers Union in the early 1970s and worked with the Independent Trade Union Action Council. Politically the Workers Liberation League gave critical support to Michael Manley’s democratic socialist program in the 1970s.

OffICIAL ORGAN OF THE WORKERS LIBERATION IAGUiE "E"23


EDITORIAL




ACT NOW
THE STATE of Emergency declared by the
Government has come not a minute too
soon. This action is bringing to light
a vast conspiracy by the enemies of
Jamaica to destabilize the country.


Side by side with their programme of
political violence the CIA and the local
reactionaries had embarked on a pro-
gramme of economic sabotage calculated
to wreck the economy and cause great
suffering to the working people. They
hoped this would make the people give
their support to the reactionaries.

The Government waited far too long be-
fore acting. Fear of upsetting the US
imperialists and the twenty one families
caused them to delay until it was almost
too late.

Now that they have acted, Mr. Manley and
his Cabinet must carry this matter
through to the end, taking the firmest
measures, without fear or favour, again-
st all the privileged law-breakers who
planned, aided and carried out this con-
spiracy.

Once they have got the situation under
control, the Government must resist any
policy which would bring more hardship
on the workers, take decisive action to
stop the economic sabotage and bring
about an immediate improvement in the
conditions of the masses.

There can be no wage freeze or other
discredited capitalist "solution" to the
crisis. If sacrifices are to be made,
the workers are ready, but this time,
the big capitalists must be made to
shoulder the burdens of the crisis they
have created.
*Anyone found guilty of pushing up pri-
ces beyond the controls, evading taxes
or sending money out of the country
must be locked up and their property
taken away from them.

*A massive reduction of rents must be
put into effect. The tenants must be
mobilized to enforce the new rent
Slaws.

*The Prime Minister must act immediate-
ly to reduce the JOS bus fares, espe-
cially fares for school children.

*Urgent efforts must be made to obtain
large quantities of low-priced canned
goods, milk and milk products and meat
products from the socialist countries.

SThe Land Reform to benefit the small
and landless farmers must be speeded
up. Idle land must be transferred to
the rural poor through tenants asso-
ciations and community councils with-
out further delay.

^ .


ON SATURDAY, June
19, the move was
made. Government
was at last satis-
fied that there
existed a well-
organised conspira-
cy to disrupt the
life of the whole
country.

In broadcasts to
the nation on
Declaration Day
(June 19), and a
speech in Parlia-
ment on Tuesday,
(June 22), Prime
Minister Manley
pointed out that
Government and the
security forces had
definite informa-
tion to prove that
the terror launched
on the working peo-
ple, the economic
hardship, was part
of a plan, and that
this plan would un-
fold even more
viciously.

In order to move
the plan into the
highest gear, a
series of incidents
were to be staged
to make it seem as
if persons connect-
ed with the Govern-
ment were involved
in reactionary vio-
lence and various
criminal activities.

Anti-communist hys-
teria would be
stepped up even
more, and the coun-
try's economy was
to be brought to a
state of collapse.

"In an atmosphere
where people are
led to believe that
the Government
threatens to wipe
out their democra-
tic rights...that
the Government is
responsible for the
slowing down of


business and subse-
quent unemployment,
it is easy for un-
scrupulous men to
mobilise the con-
stituency of tradi-
tional violence and
to rally more and
more people to the
cry that the solu-
tion to all of the
country's ills is
the use of the gun,
the bullet and
fire, and not the
ballot-box." (PM)

The State of Emer-
gency came almost
too late to stop
the plans. But be-
fore it was fully
four days old,
fourteen persons
had been locked up.
And the working
people began to
breathe a sigh of
relief.

The Prime Minister
has made it clear


that the State of
Emergency is aimed
at those who plan
and carry out the
destabilization of
our country. They
must be stopped.
One of the main
aims of the Emerg-
ency is to create
the atmosphere in
which the people of
Jamaica can freely
exercise their
right to choose the
political represen-
tative they want.


THE DESTABILIZIR


AT







LAST


WORKERS GIVE
WORKERS and clerical staff at Serv-Wel
Limited have contributed over $157 to
the fund for the victims of the Orange
Lane fire.

The workers sacrificed this money to
help their brothers and sisters at a
time when more than 30 workers were
being laid off by the Company's manage-
ment.
"To show our concern we are making a
contribution to those who suffered in
the Orange Lane fire."

"The mental and
physical strain is
becoming too much
to bear. We have
stood long for our
rights against in-
justice, but we
have stood alone,
with no help from
official quarters.
What is the use of
the Rent Board low-
ering the rent with
no effective way of
ensuring against
retaliation? Other
tenants have ex-
pressed sympathy
and try to keep up
our spirits. But
much cannot be done
by them without
going outside of
the law. We are
law-abidina citi-
zens.

So without the full
participation of
the tenants them-
selves, with the
best of intentions,
the law will be
meaningless.

"We therefore ask
that the rent res-
triction law be
speeded up and the
rent tribunals


seated in the com-
munities."

Up to this day, the
tenants have still
not received the
necessary "help
from official quar-
ters". More impor-
tantly, they re-
ceived no help from
the mass of tenants
in Waltham. The
little help they
got from a few pro-
gressive tenants
could not turn
their struggle into
a victory. All the
tenants in Waltlham
were deeply sad and
angry at the vicious
attacks on their


comrades. But
there was and still
is no unity between
tenants; no TENANTS
ASSOCIATION. Very
little can come out
of a few tenants at
a time fighting for
justice against the
landlords. Every
day in Waltham a
tenant is forced to
fight back. But he
is alone and usual-
ly loses.

Until tenants orga-
nize into progres-
sive tenants asso-
ciations in their
communities and un-
til the government
takes serious ac-


tions against the
landlords, there
will continue to be
cases like that at
17 Campbell's Blvd.

While recognizing
the small step
ahead, the tenants
stated that:

"The rent restric-
tion law will be
meaningless if the
power of the land-
lords is not brok-
en; if the power is
not given tenants

discussion organis-
ed by the Hanover
Progressive Move-
ment (HPM) on June
10 at the Lucea
Court House. The
topic of the dis-
cussion was "JAMAI-
CA NOW, AND THE WAY
FORWARD" Other
speakers were O.
Dunstan of Young
Jamaica and Rev.
Ernle Gordon. Mr.
McGrath, JLP care-
taker for Hanover,
was chairman of the
function.

Before a packed
Court House, con-
sisting of youths,
teachers, civil
servants, the MP
and Councillors for
the parish, Comrade
Munroe challenged
the representatives
of the JLP present
to "stop telling
the problems and
say what solutions
they had to offer".

He said that the
stated solution put
forward by the JLP
was to give greater
freedom to the im-
perialists and lo-
cal big capitalists
to exploit and op-


press the poor.

Turning to the dem-
ocratic socialist
view of the way
ahead, Comrade Mun-
roe said that demo-
cratic socialism
showed a sincere
desire to help the
people. In fact,
some things were
being done. But
the way in which
these things were
being done already
spelt failure for
the efforts, be-
cause democratic
socialism sought to
hold on to the ene-
mies of the people
while trying to
hold hands with the
people. This could
not work, he said,
and the present sit-
uation in which the
imperialists and
their local friends
were mashing up the
country was ample
proof of this.

Communists believed
that the country
needed to be united
against the imperi-
alists and local
big capitalists.
He called for deci-
sive economic and
political measures


to benefit the peo-
ple of the country
and for these mea-
sures to be aimed
against the enemies
of the people.
Firm action should
be taken, he said,
against all trait-
ors to the people
and country. They
should be locked
up.

"A strong left
movement, uniting
the people of our


country workers,
youth, farmers,
progressive middle
class must be
built. And in this
movement, the inde-
pendent party of
the working class
(communists) should
play an important
role. Only such a
movement can defeat
the plans of reac-
tion and move our
country forward at
this time."

CULTUI


S 'RASTAMAN VIBRATIONS- a review


BOB MARLEY is probably, at this time,
Jamaica's most well known artiste, na-
tionally ,and internationally. Any new
recording by him must therefore be re-
cognized as an important addition to
Jamaica's cultural life. RASTAMAN
VIBRATIONS, his latest L.P., reflects
many of the positive and negative poli-
tical trends amongst Rastafari in
Jamaica today.

Musically, this is not Bob's best L.P.
Catch a Fire, Burnin', and Natty Dread,
while all experimenting with electrical
sound effects, managed to retain the
rock-solid drums and base, which are the
heart of reggae. "Johnny Was", on the
new L.P., for example, is not reggae but
a straight rhythm and blues number. No-
thing is wrong with rhythm and blues a
product of the black ghettoes and urban
oppression in the USA but Bob's use of
it is not very successful. This is not
to say that there are not musically
pleasing tunes on the L.P. "Crazy Bald-
head", and "Who the Cap Fit", not to


THE FOLLOWING letter was sent by the
Independent Trade Union Action Council
to the Minister of Foreign Affairs,
Dudley Thompson, calling on the
Jamaican government to actively pro-
test the atrocities of the fascist
Chilean government against political
prisoners and trade unionists being
held in Chile.

Dear Sir,

It is with the greatest urgency and a
demand for the strongest international
solidarity among all anti-fascist for-
ces, that we take this medium to draw
your attention to the continued savagery
and the mountainous amount of extermina-
tion of trade unionists and political
prisoners that are being carried out by
the military junta of Chile. In addi-
tion to the above several detainees who
have not been exterminated just simply
disappeared.

Information of these continued attroci-
ties have just reached us by cable from
the International Trade Union Solidarity
Committee with Chile. Also contained in
the information are plans by the junta


mention "Rat Race", would satisfy the
heart of any sound system follower.

The lyrics of many of the recordings al-
so do not come up to past standards. In
"Positive Vibration" Bob sings: "You
just can't live that negative way.'..make
way for the positive day". This "posi-
tive day" is supposed to come through
the Rastaman's positive vibrations.
This doesn't help at all to guide the
mass of our people out of exploitation
and is a far cry from "Revolution" on
the Natty Dread L.P., where Bob sings:
"It takes a revolution, to make a solu-
tion, too much confusion, so much frus-
tration".

In "Rat Race", Bob sings: "Rasta don't
work for no CIA". This is a good indi-
cation of the rising consciousness of
our people to the threat from the CIA
and United States imperialism. But does
Rasta work for the struggle against the
CIA? Bob does not make this clear. One
is left to wonder if he is saying that
Rastafari are somehow apart from this
"Rat Race" between exploiters and ex-
ploited, going on beneath them.

In "Crazy Baldhead" this thought also
lingers. It is clear that Bob is refer-
ring to the local capitalist and imper-
ialists who "look pon me with scorn,
then you eat up all my corn". However,
some Rastafari interpret "Baldhead" to
mean anyone capitalist, worker, unem-
ployed youth who is not a dreadlock.

In this sense, the imperialists could
use the "Baldhead" concept to create un-
natural divisions among poor people -
"dreadlocks versus the rest". This can
only help the imperialists to continue
dividing and ruling our nation and must
be struggled against.


to exterminate the following detainees:
Victor Diaz, Mario Zamorano, Jorge
Munoz, Bernada Araya, Hernan Monteale-
grie, Dolores Carvajal, Jaime Donato and
Eloy Ramirez.

We are calling upon the Jamaican Govern-
ment through your Ministry to use your
high and respected offices in the de-
fense of human rights and the taking of
positive steps in the OAS Assembly and
the UNO Assembly to save the lives of
all detainees and also to secure their
immediate release.

As you are aware of the junta's contin-
ued flagrant transgression of all Resol-
utions of the United Nations General
Assembly and the Human Rights Commission
Reports, which all express the concern
of the peoples of the world and their
repudiation of the barbaric repression
of the Chilean people by the Pinochet's
Junta, any positive action by the
Jamaica Government can save the lives of
all those Chilean citizens condemned by
fascism.
Chris. Laurence

I.T.A.C.


In "War" we see the revolutionary side
of Bob and of Rastafari, reflecting the
growing anti-imperialist consciousness
of Jamaican working people. Bob chants:

"UNTIL THE IGNOBLE AND UNHAPPY REGIME
THAT NOW HOLD OUR BROTHERS IN ANGOLA, IN
MOZAMBIQUE, SOUTH AFRICA, IN SUB-HUMAN
BONDAGE, HAVE BEEN TOPPLED, UTTERLY DES-
TROYED, EVERYWHERE IS WAR."

"War" is the best thing on this L.P. and
worth the money for itself alone. This
is the side of Bob Marley and of all our
artistes that we should encourage. It
not only recognizes oppression and suf-
feration, but goes one step further. It
says "until freedom from imperialism and
apartheid come, no peace for the imper-
ialists and racists".

We look forward to greater works devel-
oping the anti-imperialist consciousness
of our people from Bob and the Wailers
and all progressive Jamaican artistes.

nised according to certain definite
principles it is a party in name only YET WHILE THE PARTY RANK AND FILE IS IN
and cannot really help the revolutionary THE DARK THE CAPITALISTS INSIDE THE


struggle.

Amongst these DEMOCRATIC CENTRALISM is
the main principle. This principle re-
cognises that it is the labour of the
masses not the money of the capitalist
which builds up society and that it is
the struggles of the oppressed people
not the helping hand of this or that
leader which brings progress. Because
of this the party must be organised to
make sure that the best sons and daught-
ers of the working people, their views
and their activity, are not just there
inside the party but actually control
and direct the objectives of the Commun-
ist party and the drawing up of the plan
of action to achieve these objectives.

This cannot be in the capitalist parties
because the capitalists are always
afraid of the masses getting out of
hand, out of "their" hands. They always
try to control the people. The capital-
ist political parties, however progres-
sive, cannot allow the party rank and

ABOUT THE IMPORTANT DECISIONS AND MAKE.
THEIR VOICE HEARD IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS
LONG BEFORE THE PARTY MEMBERS EVEN KNOW
WHAT IS GOING ON. IN SUCH PARTIES
WHILST THE LEADER MIGHT LISTEN TO THE
OPINION OF THE PARTY MEMBER AT ELECTION
TIME, EVERY DAY AND EVERY WEEK THE
CAPITALISTS ARE BUSY MAKING SURE THAT
THE PARTY LEADER DOES NOT STEP TOO FAR
OUT OF LINE. Because the capitalist is
the one who counts in such parties, the
ordinary member has to follow blindly -
he does not and cannot know what is
really going on; he eventually gets fed
up, stops going to party meetings or
loses interest in working for the party.

The principle of the Communist party is
totally different from this. The line
of march of the party as a whole is de-
cided by the party as a whole not by
the leader and a few big capitalists be-
hind closed doors. What the party's
aims are, what the party policy is, how
the party is going to deal with the dif-
ferent social classes in the society,
what other parties or groups the party
is goino to ally with or to fight again-


st,.who is going to lead the party, who
is going to be thrown out of the lead-*
ership, what are the rules which all I
members of the party from top to bot-
tom must follow these are matters
which the Commmunist party principle of
democratic centralism places firmly in
the hands of the party and ultimately in
its supreme body the party congress.
For this reason, the congress of the
Communist party and the preparations for
the congress is always a serious busin-
ess. From weeks before, sometimes
months, every party group and every
party committee must get copies of the
various resolutions, proposals and nomi-
nations to study and to discuss. Before
the congress and at the congress every
party group and every party committee
has the right and duty to put forward
open criticisms of what the party is
doing and of how this or that leader is
performing; to propose changes in the
policy of the party and to debate the
resolutions which are to guide the
party. Not only at congress but in each
party group and party committee EVERY
MAN HAS A VOICE AND A VOTE; NO MAN IS
ABOVE CRITICISM. THIS IS THE DEMOCRACY
OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY.

Where does the Centralism come in?
Once the talking is over, once the
vote has been taken, because every
member has played a part in coming to
a decision EVERYBODY, INCLUDING THE
MINORITY MUST FALL IN LINE. IF THERE
IS A DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN THE VIEWS
OF THE PARTY COMMITTEE AT THE LOWER
LEVEL AND THE COMMITTEE AT THE HIGHER
LEVEL, THEN THE LOWER COMMITTEE. MUST
FALL IN LINE ALSO. NO-ONE IS ALLOWED
TO MARCH OUT OF STEP IN THE COMMUNIST
PARTY.

The member who is dragging his foot
or who is grumbling in disagreement
after a decision is taken or who is
trying to stir up opposition to
agreed policy such a member is
hurting the unity and discipline of
the party, helping the capitalist
and has to be kicked out of the
party.

This is why the communist party and
its members are totally united and
totally disciplined whilst the cap-
italist parties are always disunited
and always indisciplined.
