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.

the struggle in zim
"AT THIS very moment, as I speak Lo you
here, armed struggle is being waged by
the liberation forces in Zimbabwe. Arm-
ed struggle will continue until the rei-
gns of power are in the hands of the pe-
ople of Zimbabwe."

"The same countries which have us under
colonial and imperialist oppression are
now trying to "engotiate a settlement".

So said Joseph Dube of the Patriotic
Front of Zimbabwe. Brother Dube is the
Front's representative to the Caribbean
Region. He is stationed in Cuba. Dur-
ing his recent visit to Jamaica, he spo-
ke about the stage of the struggle in
Zirbabwe at an African Liberation Day
(May 25) Rally. The Rally was organised
by the PNP Youth Organisation and the
African Caribbean Institute of Jamaica.

Final Victory
Bro Dube said: "Since when the American
government on the side of the oppressed?
How come they have a solution now; they
just trying to confuse the minds of the
people and lay them more open to the

"Behind the white minority in South Afr-
ica and Rhodesia stand all the transna-
tional corporations and their imperial-
ist governments, headed by that of the
United States. The armed struggle will
continue until final victory."

In the face of all these tricks of impe-
rialism coupled with the brutal oppres-
sion of the Zimbabwe people, the patrio-
tic forces have been uniting and moving
forward the struggle on the military and
political front.

The Zimbabwe African People's Union
(ZAPU) and the Zimbabwe African Nationa-
list Union (ZANU) have merged their pol-
itical and military forces.' There is
now one people's army. The Zimbabwe
working class operates as a vital part
of the patriotic forces and is organised
in the Zimbabwe Congress of Unions.
This body unites all trade unions.

Sociolist Support
Together with youth, women, peasants and
progressive intellectuals, they are
brought together in the Zimbabwe People's
Revolutionary Council (ZPRC). This is
the leader of the people's revolution in

Bro Dube made special reference to the


moral and material support given to the
struggle of the Zimbabwe people by soci-
alist and progressive Third World coun-
tries. He commended the solidarity of
the Jamaican people with the southern
African struggle as shown in Prime Min-
ister Manley's stand at the recent Mapu-
ta Conference in Mozambique. He spoke
about Comrade Fidel Castro's recent vis-
it to Africa and Cuba's support.

He also spoke of the principled friend-
ship and assistance of the Soviet Union
to the liberation struggle. "Mozambique
was transformed within 9 months with as-
sistance from the Soviet Union", Bro
Dube said.

Stating firmly what the Zimbabwe strug-
gle was about, Bro Dube said: "We are
dedicated freedom fighters. We do not
hate white people. We say that the
decision-making processes of the govern-
ment and the economy of Africa must be
in the hands of the masses of African
people. We are not fighting a race war,
we are fighting a system which you know
in the Caribbean too. We want to rid
our country of colonialism and imperial-
ism. This is why we are brothers in the


aa en

THE workers and delegates of the Univer.
sity are now asking whose side is Deput
Prime Minister David Coore on. They
want to know if he is on the side of th
workers or the management. Workers han
seen Mr Coore attack the bauxite work-
ers, implying that they are getting tco
much money.

The University Workers Union, UAWO, re-
cently served a 49 point claim on the
University management. After 6 meet-
ings, with the University unwilling tc
offer even one cent increase to the we(-
kers, the management under the guise seeking funds from Government wrote Min-
ister Coore for advice as to how much t
offer the workers.

Whose Inter.est?

What did Coore do? Instead of telling
the management to deal with the workers'
union seriously and offer a reasonable
wage increase to the workers, he took
the side of management and told them to
break off negotiations. Mr Coore knows
that if this is done the University wor
kers will fight for their rights. Yet
he is doing this at a time when over
3,000 students are taking exams. Whose
interest is Coore serving? Certainly
not the workers, students or the future

Wage Freege

The workers and their union have taker
the position that Coore's advice goes
against what Prime Minister Manley told
the trade unions. The Prime Mihister
said that normal trade union activities
and negotiations will continue.
What then is Coore getting at? Are tl.e

from our readers

Comrade Editor,

Right-wing Minister
Vivian Blake recen-
tly came out broad-
ly and expressed
the general wish of
the big people that
the progressive
wing in the govern-
ment be kicked out.

Blake claimed in
Parliament during
the budget debate
that there were
some groups who we -
re asking for the
destruction of the

private sector.
Blake said: "Gover-
nment will not use
the shortage of fo-
reign exchange to
force the manufact-
uring sector out of
business. Instead
it is getting the
money from where it
can, to keep the
manufacturer going.
Those who think th-
is is not the appr-
oach let them get
out and form their
own party."

For Vivian Blake,

such a demand is
not unusual. In
the 1950s he was
among the group of
conservatives in
the PNP which suc-
cessfully schemed
to get out the pro-
gressive group of
Hart, Henry and the
two Hills from the
party. He no doubt
wants to try it ag-
ain. He stood with
those who worked to
turn the country
back at that time
and there is no
reason why he will
not try it again.

It is significant
that big manufact-
urer Vaz and others
of the opposition
party applauded
Blake and later in
his speech, Seaga
congratulated Blake
and made an appeal
for closer coopera-
tion between the
PNP (right wing)
and the JLP. It
seems they want to
collectively isola-
te the left in the-
ir bid for politic-
al survival

ismendi, General
Secretary of the
Communist Party in
Uruguay, recently
paid a visit to Ja-
maica. While here
he exchanged views
with the General
Secretary of the
Workers Liberation
League on the situ-
ation in Uruguay
and Jamaica.

In an interview
with Struggle Com-
rade Arismendi ex-
pressed solidarity COMRADE Rodney Ari-
with the people and smendi, General Se-

"In the present moment Jamaica is
part of the world anti-imperialist
struggle. It is a small country.
It's before the mouth of
imperialism. It has great problems
So the first thing is to strength-
en the anti-imperialist struggle
starting with what you've already
conquered. It is necessary to de-
velop organizations that will
strengthen this process and also
widen the range of those that
support socialism.

The fascist military seized power
in Uruguay in June 1973 just three
months before the Chilean coup.
The Uruguayan military backed by
American imperialism abolished the
constitution, Congress, all polit-
ical parties and tle trade union
movement. Urugual today has more
political prisoners per capita
than any other country in the wor-

Id. Uruguay has a population of
under 3 million. Comrade Aris-
mendi himself spent over a year
in prison before he was released
in 1975 due to a strong inter-
national campaign. Of the 6000
political prisoners who are serv-
ing indefinite prison sentences
there are 4300 Communists. 18%
of the political prisoners have
been women. 50,000 people have
been jailed since the coup. Com-
munist leaders have been tortured
and put in special prison camps.

One of the secretaries of the Comm-
unist party, Comrade Jaime Perez
has been brutally tortured.

Fighting back

But the communists are fighting back.
The Uruguayan CP, which was founded
57 years ago had a membership of
50,000 strong 78% of whom were
workers, before the coup. They are
now active in the underground. They
publish a weekly newspaper called
'Letter' and a monthly magazine cal-
led 'Analysis and Orientation.' They
have also been active in the strike
struggle which stepped up in 1976.
The Communist Youth, the trade union
movement and the Federation of
Students are also actively opposing
the fascist military.
In answering the question why should
Carter make declarations against the
fascist governments of Latin America,
Rodney Arismendi said that US
imperialism had not been able to con-
solidate fascism and that the politic
al base of the military rulers was
getting smaller. The anti-fascist
forces were gaining ground in Latin
America and the Carter administration
knows this. He said the US govern-
ment is intent on maintaining its
domination over Latin America and

realises that it cannot rely on
these military regimes which are
going to be overthrown.

He said that the U.S. had suffered
historic defeats particularly in
Vietnam. Moreover the socialist
countries, 'USSR and Cuba appear
before the world as peace forces
that defend national liberation
and democracy. After Watergate,
Vietnam and the CIA disclosures the
US government is intent on improving
their world image and retaking the
initiative in world politics.


The Carter adminis-
tration therefore
needs to say new
things before the
world in order to
change the image of
ithe US as the fath-
er of fascism in
Chile and Uruguay
and of the most
horrible tortures.

A look at the


THE 16th Congress of the All Union Cen-
tral Council of the Soviet Trade Unions
was held from March 21-25.

It was attended by Mr Chris Lawrence,
Secretary of the Independent Trade Union
Action Council and one of Jamaica's
early communists.

The Congress was attended by 5,000 dele-
cates from all branches of the country's
economy from the 15 republics of the
Soviet Union. Comrade L.I.Brezhnev,Gen-
eral Secretary of the Communist Party of
the Soviet Union, addressed the Congress.

In between sessions at the Congress del-
ecates visited a number of factories and
workplaces in Moscow. Mr Lawrence was
a-,ong a group which went to the "Savla"
watch and clock factory. They were met
by the Party representative in the fac-
tory, the Manager of the factory repre-
senting the Ministry under which the
factory falls and the Trade Union Secre-
tary of the Factory Committee. These
three workers form the management of the
factory. There are 11,000 workers em-
ployed, 90% of them women. Attached to
this factory, like most factories in the
Soviet Union, is a cultural centre. The-
re are also a cinema, hair-dressing par-
lour, barber shop and a technical school
for training workers for-the factory.
All workers receive a bonus on their
earnings at the end of the year and if
