 Notes
Abstract: 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.

RALLY



REACTION


None of the speak-
ers in the rally,
however, answered
the question which
was clearly on the
mind of the work-
ing people gather-
ed in Sam Sharpe
Square. The mood
of the people was
asking "What are
we to do to make
sure that reac-
tion's tricks and
plans to subvert
the elections are
defeated, and that
the will of the
people prevail?".


130,000 people in
Sam Sharpe Square
gave a clear mes-
sage: "We want to
move for ward to
defeat reaction in
the elections on
December 15. And
we want to move
forward beyond
that battle to
deal with imperia-
lism once and for
all".

The rally failed to
show a clear path
forward.

SUPPORT


THE WLL has receiv-
ed many letters,
telegrams and tele-
phone calls sup-
porting our stand
in the broadcast on
JBC on October 31
and RJR on November
7. In addition our
experience in dis-
tributing thousands
3f copies, particu-
larly in the coun-
try towns, shows
that the people
will support the
party that defends
the people against
the imperialists
and the big man.

The letters asked
for printed copies
of the broadcast
and for a re-broad-
cast which was done
on RJR on November
21. A brethren in
Kingston even vol-
unteered to raise


money for the re-
broadcast .
Another writer
praised the fact
that the broadcast
defended the poorer
class of people -
whether they be
PNP, JLP or no-
party. Some work-
ers did not totally
agree with what
Comrade Trevor Mun-
roe said but prais-
ed the "positive-
ness" of the broad-
cast.

The experience of
WLL comrades who
travelled through
the countryside
distributing the
broadcast is of
great value.

strong heart" be-
cause he knew that
this town had been
hit hardest by im-
perialist sabotage
in the tourist in-
dustry. He had to
go "with a strong
heart" because he
felt the people
might throw him out
saying that it was
"socialism cause

To his surprise,
while distributing
one vendor broke
out spontaneously
and said "Is CIA

ca'an get no money,
is dem a mash up
the country an' dem
a blame it pon the

started to sing
songs against Seaga
and was joined by
the vendors who
started to jig in
the market.

Another interesting
response came from
some youths in Mo-
Bay who said "they
don't deal with po-
litics". The WLL
brethren reasoned

ing that thousands

no homes because of
the capitalist. Af-
ter a while one
said "Never know is

of them took copies
for their community.

The comrade noted
that the JLP had a
big influence among
the poor peasants
in the hillside
districts but the
PNP was strong in
the towns. The
comrades distribut-
ed the broadcast to


JLP peasants and
higglers. In the

supporters said
"Although they de-

lessons from vietnam


VIETNAM's Ambassador to Cuba, Comrade
Hau Va: Lau, came to Jamaica recently to
express the solidarity of the Revolution-
ary Government and people of Vietnam
with the people and Government of Jamai-
ca.
During his time here, Comrade Ambassador
met with the Foreign Affairs Minister,
Mr. Dudley Thompson, and the Minister of
Mining, Mr. Horace Clarke. He also met
wepresentatives of the sugar workers.

At a talk on the UWI campus, put on by
the Union of Democratic Students, Com-
rade Vau Lau told of the imperialist
crimes against his country. How the
war, started by US imperialism's CIA,
destroyed many parts of their country
and murdered tens of thousands of Viet-
namese men, women and children.


Munn, about harass-
ment. The LIGUANEA
SOCIALIST MOVEMENT
also met the Com-
missioner of Pol-
ice. They told him
about the behaviour
of some members of
the police force at
a dance in the com-
munity. On the 23
October there was a
dance at 9 Confide-
nce View Lane. The
dance was going on
quite peacefully
until about 10 min-
utes to 1.
At this time, a


party of policemen
came into the dance.
In this group were
Constables Dyer and
Johnson from Matil-
das Corner Police
Station. Dyer or-
dered everyone to
leave the dance and
go home, because
the State of Emer-

after this, the
policemen let loose
some shots in the
dance. Luckily no
one was injured.

The Ambassador said the struggle was
successful because (a) It was guided by
a united, revolutionary Workers Party.
(b) The Party united Vietnamese workers,
small farmers, youth, middle class peo-
ple and sincere businessmen in the stru-
ggle to get US imperialism out of their
country. He said the youth were in the
forefront of the struggle, joining with
all the other sections of the Vietnamese
people. He also made special mention of
Vietnamese women. He said they played a
great part in the struggle.

(c) The third lesson was that the Viet-
namese people did not see their struggle
as just a Vietnam struggle. The Ambas-
sador said it was seen as part of the

133 Laid Off


UNI-PRINT, one of
the largest print-
eries in Jamaica,
has just laid off
133 of its work-
force of 183. The
major shareholders
in this printery
are the Ashenheim
and D & G families.

















FIVE members of the SOUTH WEST ST. AN-
DREW CITIZENS ASSOCIATION (SWSACA) were
recently discharged by the Courts from
a charge of criminal libel brought ag-
ainst them by JLP Senator Pearnel
Charles.

Judge Ian Forte did not call on them to
give their defense. He said that the
prosecution had not presented any case
for them to answer. Judge Forte said,
further, that the evidence of the poli-
ce officer was unworthy of such high-
ranking police officers.

Following the dismissal of the SWSACA
members, the SWSACA General Secretary,
Ben Munroe, gave certain information to
the news media. This information had
been given to the Government and was to
come out in the Court case when SWSACA
gave their defense.

rhe SWSACA General Secretary said that
in January 1975 he was approached by
the well-known terrorist, Claudie Mos-
sop, and asked to work for Edward Sea-
ga. Munroe said that he had first met
Mossop while they were both in the Gen-
eral Penitentiary. Mossop thought that
because Ben Munroe had been denied bail
he would be against the Michael Manley
Government and so would be willing to
work for Seaga against the governing
party.

Ben Munroe said that Mossop told him
that since Seaga had taken over the
JLP he was supported by some of the
richest and most powerful capitalists
in the United States of America. Mos-
sop said that these capitalists had
made $25 million available to Seaga and
nore money was to come when elections
were called.


SWSACA says



BRING THEMTO TRIAL


Ben Munroe said that Mossop asked him
to meet with Seaga and told him of a
plan the JLP leaders had to train an
army of gunmen to launch terror on
front-line PNP supporters. Mossop said
that they would go after 2000 PNP sup-
porters. Without these people, the PNP
would not be able to fight an election.

This plan was to be carried out direct-
ly by the trained gunmen, called "Free-
dom Fighters". Ben Munroe said that
Mossop told him that Rasta youth, who
did not defend politics would be broug-
ht into this army of terrorists. They
were to be told that they were not
fighting politics, but revolution, Mos-
sop said.

The SWSACA General Secretary said that
apart from this, Mossop said that the
plan also included organising economic
sabotage. The Jamaican economy was to
be smashed up and as things got harder
for the working people, Seaga was to
play the role of a prophet in Parlia-
ment, warning of doom and that the Gov-
ernment couldn't manage the country.
The plan was to use this to turn the
people against the Manley Government and
so bring it down.

Munroe said he told Mossop that he would
work with Seaga. But he turned over a
document with all that he had been told
to Governmentofficials. After this,
Munroe said, he got several messages
from Pearnel Charles asking that he meet
him. Munroe said that Charles sent to
say that if he was worried about money,
that was no problem. He (Charles) could
give him money, a house and a car.

ends abroad who
will stop at no-
thing to turn back
the struggle for
democracy and so-
cialism, as they
tried in Angola.

But they were de-
feated by the Ango-
lan people. The
only way that they
will be defeated in
Jamaica is if the
small people unite
and organise them-
selves to beat back
these enemies.

The first public

wOrld Repression in the


affairs Caribbean


POLITICAL repression of progressive peo-
ple outside of the ruling party continu-
es in Guyana. The WLL has already con-
demned this in relation to the trial of
Eusi Kwayana for publishing Dayclean,
organ of the Working Peopls's Alliance.
These attacks weaken the unity of the
progressive forces in Guyana which can-
not be brought together under one party.

The WLL also protests the frame-up of
Arnold Rampersad, a leading People's
Progressive Party activist. Rampersad,
a taxi driver, father of five children
and a popular member of the PPP, goes on
trial in Georgetown for the murder of a
policeman, James Henry, on July 18, 1974.
He has been awaiting trial for over 2
years.


Eampersad has constantly been subjected
to police harrassment. This is the
third time he has been charged with mur-
der. While in prison Rampersad was in-
vited to join the People's National Con-
gress (Burnham) and leave the People's
Progressive Party (Jagan).


dominica
DESMOND TROTTER is a political prisoner
in Dominica who was also framed on a
murder charge. Due to international
protest Trotter was saved from the gal-
lows and sentenced to life imprisonment.
The struggle is now to free Trotter.

November 20 marked 2h years since his
imprisonment. A rally to be held in
Dominica in support of his freedom was
banned by the government and Dr Walter
Rodney who was to have addressed the
rally was banned from entering the coun-
try.
The WLL urges all fair-minded people to
sign the petition being circulated for
the freedom of Trotter or to send cables
to: Premier Patrick John, Government
Headquarters, Rouseau, Dominica.


grenada
ON DECEMBER 7 the people of Grenada go
to the polls to choose a new government.
The radical New Jewel Movement has link-
ed up with the other opposition parties
to throw out the corrupt and repressive
Gairy government. NJM is putting up 8
candidates.


The NJM is demanding in its programme a
lowering of the cost of living and an
end to exploitative profits and monopol-
ies. The NJM also demands that loans be
made available to small businessmen and
fishermen who are discriminated against
at the banks.
The NJM newspaper, although banned by
Gairy, is widely circulated throughout
Grenada.


st. vincent_
IN St. Vincent another progressive per-
son, Junior "Spirit" Cottle, was senten-
ced to 15 years imprisonment on a charge
of shooting at a policeman.

Junior Cottle is a member of the Youlou
United Liberation Movement of St. Vin-
cent. As in the case of Comrade Ramper-
sad of Guyana and Desmond Trotter of Do-
minica, efforts have been made to sil-
ence Junior Cottle.

Freedom, organ of YULIMO, reports that
in spite of years of imprisonment and
illness, Cottle am by his courage, his
refusal to be broken and his great ideo-
logical development" set an example in
the struggle for freedom in St. Vincent.

WORK



FOR



THE PNP



TO WIN

UP UNTIL now the JLP seem to be every-
where in the election campaign. Their
posters are posted up on almost every
lamp post. Their signs are painted up
all over the road. New jeeps, new Maz-
das and new Toyotas, especially in King-
ston, are driving around broadcasting
for the JLP all the time. On the radio
every minute you hear their bell ring-
Lng, their slogans "Freedom" and "Hi-
up". In the s'e'zer almost every day
you read news of their meetings in the
country districts. Every day there are
reports of the propaganda Seaga is
spreading amongst the country people.
Every day there is another Gleaner ad-
vertisement of yet another capitalist on
the so-called Action Team.

Anybody with sense can see that Seaga
has more money to spend in this election
than he knows what to do with. Just one
of those half-page Gleaner ads cost ab-
out $500. Just one of those radio
broadcasts on Sunday afternoon cost ab-
out $250 to get the time on the air and
to advertise the broadcast. Every sin-
gle one of those Freedom ads on the ra-
dio cost about $20 and there are at
least 30 every day that is at least
5600 each single day Seaga is spending
to get those ads on the air.
And what about the thousands of $2 bills
that were given out to hundreds of peo-
ple in Central Kingston just to register


lib

Mach'l l!!


and the tens of thousands cf dollars
that are already being handed out in the
country parts?

Seaga's campaign is costing millions and
millions of dollars. The rich people
all over the island, even those who gave
PNP money in 1972, have decided that
Seaga is their man, that they must put
in Seaga and that they must give him all
the money he needs to beat Manley and
the PNP.

The big man is not giving away all this
money the same money he gets from the
workers' labour, the same money he hides
away when workers ask for a wage in-
crease. The big man is not giving away
this money to help the poor or to "free
up" Jamaica. He is giving this money to
Seaga for one thing and one thing alone:
to put Seaga in to protect him against
the small man, to stamp out the struggle
for rights and justice.


WORK HARDER
Progressive forces cannot afford to sit
down and say "Seaga can't win". The
hardship on the mass of the people is
very great and many of our brothers and
sisters are still willing to sell their
birthright.

Nor can we sit down and criticise the
PNP that "they are not working hard" or
that "no one sees the candidate".

PROGRESSIVE FORCES, PARTICULARLY THE
YOUTH, INSIDE THE WLL, OUTSIDE THE WLL -
ALL OVER ALL OF US HAVE TO DO WHATEVER
WE CAN TO GET THE PNP RE-ELECTED AND TO
PUSH THEM FORWARD. Sitting one side and
criticising the PNP campaign is not
going to help.

Each and every comrade has to go to the
people next door, on his street, in his
community and at his workplace and show
them why, regardless of party, it is in
the interest of the small man to keep
out Seaga and the capitalists.

Each and every comrade must go to his


youth club, his citizens' association,
his trade union section, staff associa.
tion, student organisation, sports clul
and get them to discuss the election, b
understand that this election is not a
struggle of comrade against Labourite
but a struggle between the rich and th
poor and that all of us are bound to
suffer if Seaga and the big people ar-
ound him take over the government. We
have to beat down the argument that ta
king about the coming elections in the
club is politics and that the union or
the association should "leave out poli-
tics". We have to show that whatever
the organisation, so long as it repre-
sents the small man, if Seaga gets in,
it is going to mean even less rights
than they have now, more problems, mov
roadblocks to progress.

Each and every comrade has to go to th
constituency office and make the PNP
know that they have to work harder and
then HELP THEM TO WORK HARDER.

This is not a struggle of Labourite a-
ainst comrade; this is a struggle of
rich against poor, of Seaga, imperial:-
and the big man against the masses.

Only the unity of the masses and the
activity of progressive forces can de
feat the oppressor.
