PA~i3TWO OMINCA HzRAL
Integrating The Immigrant
(Cont. from page 6)
But working-class prejudice hits the headlines. The
isolated cases of factories where men strike when faced with
a Jamaican workinate (a problem usually sorted out by the
Union), or the occasional outbreak of hooliganism, how-
ever slight the racial connection, always attract attention.
Official attitudes shape opinion. Last month a High Wy-
combe Valuation Officer rejected an appeal for lower rates
with 'every sympathy' on the grounds that 'having a col-
oured neighbour is an occupational hazard like living next
to a music teacher or a tenant with noisy animals.'
The insidious exclusiveness of suburban house-owners
is less spectacular than a racial brawl in a depressed urban
area, but a matter for equal concern. Willmot and Young
showed that in Woodford owner-occupiers feared working-
class neighbours would lower the potential value of t h e i r
houses. In the United States the phenomenon of white
exodus when and estate 'tips' in favour of negto h o u s e
owners is a recognized one. When colour is added tie
myth of social equality is blown sky high.
The human problems behind the housing problem are
worth examining for the light they shed on the nature of
working-class prejudice. In most of the great conurba-
tions-London, Liverpool, Birmingham and the rest-there
are areas of social transition which are receiving immigrants
of more than one kind. In London, places like Islington
and North Kensington are invaded by la r g e L. C. C.
blocks which bring in people from outside the borough, by
middle-class renovators who bring in, blue doors and coach-
ia m p s, and by Commonwealth immigrants who bring
strange faces, strange shops, strange tongues. A survey of
a similar area ofpre-Rent Act Liverpool b e a r s this 0ot.
'In close proximity, indeed often in adjacent houses, were
young married couples living in clean, well appointed flats
were found across the street from houses in which barely
furnished rooms were let at two pounds a week to families
who lived in fear of their landlords; prostitutes p a r a d 'e d
where middle-class women pushed their prams; shebeens
and clubs stood next door to the 'h o u s e s of prim old
ladies. .. ,
This trend has increased since the Rent Act. Ten-
sion arises from the co-existence of settled communities who
have owned or occupied the largish terraced houses for more
than a generation, and the comparatively mobile, m u 1 t i-
racial rooming house population. The old established in-
habitants who remain are often less successful or energetic
than their erstwhile neighbours now moved to new towns
and outer suburbs. Such people resent newcomers what
ever their origin.
Among newcomers coloured migrants are particularly
distinguishable and therefore particularly vulnerable. The
negro is seen as the ultimate outsider, while other strangers,
like Greeks and Maltese, are sometimes referred to as 'col-
oured.' Commonwealth immigrants share the tendency
of the new inhabitants of such 'transitional areas' to k e e p
themselves to themselves. Themselves as yet rootless, tend-
ing to move around in search of work, they are found in
the same districts as social misfits and others who d e s i r e
anonymity and obscurity or those whose social Ii v e s are
independent of where they live. Such areas are character-
istically lacking in social controls and community feeling.
In the areas where community action is most needed to re-
vitalise political and social life, local organizations are often
centrifugal or almost non-existent.
This is the problem which faces socialists and all those
who care for general welfare and social harmony. In the
areas described, the ultimate solution is large scale u r b a n
redevelopment. But new communities create their own
problems. The Slough Council of Social Service h a ve
recently appointed an American sociologist from the Uni-
versity of Georgia as their first full-time secretary. One or
his problems is the integration of Commonwealth immi-
Record-breaking Revolutionary Bicycle
The newly designed Moulton bicycle continued to command
the cycling scene in Britain wlen John Woodburn broke the Bri-
tish Road Records' Association Cardiff-to-London (158 miles)
record by 18- minutes recently, lowering the old record to 6 hours,
43 minutes, 29 seconds.
Woodburn used the revolutionary stock ,prung-fraine adapt-
ed for racing with the addition of lightvwigat wheels an d compon-
grants. rt Slough's social problems arise basically from
the fact that most of its 82,000 people have been attracted
there by the growth of industry in the. last twenty y e a r s.
There is abnormal pressure on housing and a lack of family
roots in the town. The immigrant population is a smalb
part of a much ,ider problem.
Local Labour Parties
The Labour Party itself is tackling the problem of
encouraging immigrants to exercise their rights as citizens
and play an active part in politics. Cntacc has been made
with the leaders of the immigrant communities and advice
is available for those local parties who wish to m a k e a
determined attempt to attract immigrant members. West
Indians have already fought and wo.s sats in locil elections,
and Dr. David Pitt fought 1-Hampstead for Labour in the
1959 General Election.
The local parties could do a great deal more. It is
in the interest of local p a r t i e s as well as the immigrants
themselves that the newcomers should be made aware of
their rights and persuaded to register as electors. The trust
of immigrants must be woa by investigating and taking up
cases of discrimination. This will undoubtedly increase
the Labour Patty's unpopularity with the prejudiced. But
the gains will balance the losses. Do local Labour parties
really fear those who plaster their committee rooms with the
crude 'nigger minstrel' caricature, 'Do me a favour, vote
Labour?' Prejudice should be fought whatever the short-
term consequences. (Venture)

Dr. Mitchell of the Cape Divisional Council went on a record years

the government is quite desperately ernbarassed by milk 'surplusrs' in the
first twelve months after -Bremer bread' (containing skim milk powdat) was
discontinued, 370,600 gallons of skim milk went down the drain on the

There is, of course, unfortunately nothing unique about poverty such
as th;s, especially among the vast populations of Asia and Africa. But
there mi;t be a few countries indeed in which, on the one hand, that
poverty is less inevitable, or in wiach, on the other hand, state policy contri-
butes more to its aggravation.
In terms of productive potential, poverty in South Africa is totally
UNNECESSARY, and could immediately be alleviated and shortly be
abolished if the will were there to adopt the appropriate measures
In terms of material resources, South Africa is extremely well endowed.
Twenty years ago the Smuts Government appointed a Commission, with
distinguished personnel, to examine 'Fundamentals of Economic Policy in
the Union,' According to the Report, 'in many respects a natural basis
exists in the Union for manufacturing industries as it is well endowed with
raw materials, both.mineral and agricultural, has adequate and economic
power supply and possesses a considerable labour force suitable for indus
trial work provided proper training is made available.' Natural conditions
for agriculture, moreover, are 'best suited for the production of protective
foods-dairy products, meat, vegetables and fruit' rather than the cereals,
especially maize, in favour of which farming is now so heavily biased.
With a population adequate in numbers to supply the necessary labour
force, yet not excessive in relation to productive potential, it would seem
obvious that a successful attack on the spectre of want is merely a matter of
intelligent planning with that e d in view. The Commission itself indi-
cated the main outlines of such a plan. The diversion of an adequate
proportion of current training to the nonwhite population n is an obvious
priority. So is a due measure of redistribution of the current national in-!

U.N. Condemns Angola
By Eddie L. Madison, Jr.
CHICAGO-(ANP)-Before the 17th General Assembly
of the United Nations adjourned last week, it voted 57 to
14 for condemnation of Portugal's "colonial war" against
the people of Angola, its big African territory, and recom-
mended an arms embargo.
The resolution, pushed through by the big Afro-Asian
bloc which now comprises a majority in the world organiza-
tion, requested the Security Council "to take appropriate
measures, including sanctions, to force Portugal to cease its
alleged "severe repressive measures" and grant indepen-
dence to the Angolan people. The resolution received the
backing of Eastern bloc countries.
While the assembly earlier during this year's session
condemned Soul h Africa for its rigid apartheid policies, the
action recommended by the UN body against Portugal was
viewed as the toughest so far. On January 30, of th s year,
the Assembly asked the Council to keep the Angola ques
tion '"unctr constant review."
Meanwhile, observers have questioned the effectiveness
of economy c and diplomatic sanctions :mpused by the coun-
cil, since the United States, Britain, and France, all of which
voted against the resolution, c uld wield veto power. Other
negative vo'es ca.t in the assembly included: Austrahia.
Belgium, Canada, Italy, t uxernburg, Netherlands, New Zea-
laind Portugal, South Afr ca, Span and luikey. Tnere
were 18 abstentons.
The arms embargo provision of the resolution was directed at NATO
allies which various delegates have charged have been delivering arms to
Portugal. The United States has repeatedly denied any of its NATO
munitions wete being used for the "colonial war.'
Among its other provisions, the resolution,

determination and independence."

. Requested member states to deny Portugal any assistance which
could be used for "suppression" in Angola.
6. Reminded Portugal that.it had not implemented UN I resolutions
adopted in the past.
Portugal's delegate, Vasco Vieira Gatin, attacked the resolution, saying:
"We reject emphatically the unwarranted allegations it contains." He
asserted it was outrageous to suggest sanctions against his country when the
United Nations had taken no action against a country which had com-
mitted aggression-a reference to India's take-over of Portugese Goa just a
Garin pointed out that the draft contained no mention whatsoever of
the "terrorist activities" against Angolan authorities, or of outside help to
the rebels and offers to send volunteers.
Integrating The Immigrant
This article is not about the Immigration Bill, though
it will be necessary to mention it. It is a plea for s o c i a 1
action to break down the barriers which prevent the various
immigrant communities from playing a full part in the life
of Britain. Legislation against discrimination and incite-
ment to race hatred would raise the morale of the i m m i-
grants, provide a social norm for the country as a wh o le
and isolate those responsible for overtly racialist propaganda.
But legislation will be less e ffe c t i v e and possibly even
dangerous if it is not accompanied by an a tt a c k on the
material conditions and mental attitudes which give rise to
prejudice and encourage discrimination.
The job of central government and local authorities
would be clear enough even without the immigrants who,
excluding the I r i s h, make up about one percent of the
total population. The newcomers who crowd the already
decayed residential areas of London and the Midlands are
blamed for the inadequancies of an unplanned s o c i e t y.
Vigorous action is overdue, action to deal with high rents
and the housing shortage and to prevent the industrial pre-
mises and office blocks from crowding into the b o t t o m
right-hand corner of this island. The return of a .Labour 'Winners Of R.T ..

C. L. R. James -
"Party Politics in the W. I." $1.50
This important st'ldy of our political situation in these islands was
published by Vedic Enterprises Ltd. of San Juan, Trinidad, just before a
note of greeting arrived at the HFRALD office from C. L. R. James and his
wife, now safely established in North West London with their 40 pieces of
baggage (mainly books and papers).
It is important not only because of its opinions but because of its
warnings. The first part is largely a reprint of the paper "PNM Go
Forward" which was written by Mr. James when he broke off relations
with the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Hon. Dr. Williams.
Chaguaramas was a major issue in this break as the study reveals. But
stresses and strains over Federation came a close second, and underlying it
all was the vexed question of attitudes and principles, James indicates
clearly that the political leaders of the West Indies do not show enough
faith in their people, a conclusion shared by other reviewers of this work.
James realises how small the West Indian Islands are geopolitically,
yet how significant their contribution to world affairs might be. In order
to attain such stature, he states the view that they must be politically
organised. It is not sufficient for our citizens just to elect a Government:
they must be always watchful of that Government's deeds, and resist being
fooled. James is proud of being a West Indian, one of the underdeveloped
formerly colonial coloured peoples who are (through cducat:on, language
and way of hfc) a part of Western civilisation.; but while admitting that hi;
comp.txiots "still bear in their souls the shackles of slavery" he tries to point
out how powerful and fine a force the West Indian people coulld be, if'they
became aware of their potential, their history and their opportunities.
Of course James has his complaints and his grudges. He has :un into
many a political storm, the last hurricane having cast him ut, on the shores
of Britain. He slates W. I. politicians heavily for their self aggrandisement.
and aiso those who are merely yes-men bowing before their leaders. Look-
ing at the Federal collapse from a new perspective, James notes that "our
politicians are busy behaving as if nothing important has happened and
all we have to do now is to celebrate independence".
In his ruthless Part II analysis of those who "live by politics", James
does not spare the West Indian middle-class. If you want to avoid being
governed:by persons' who'behAve like "crabs in a: barrel', as James puts it,
try ro obtain a copy of this book: you will find the exercise of read ng it
both provoking and rewarding.

Tshome And Pan-African Politics
By Eddie L. Madison, Jr.
The unanimous endorsement of Congolese unity and
support of United Nations action in Katanga Province by
the Pan African Freedom Movement for East, Central and
Southern Africa (PAFMECSA) at a meeting held D.cember
28-31, seemed to dim any hopes of Moise Tshombe to don
the badge of Pan Africanism.
There had been reports from Tanganyika, headquarters of
PAFMECSA, and Northern Rhodesia that Tshombe controversi-
al Katanga leader, was renewing his search for Pan Africanist
respectability. Peter Mbiyu Koinange, secretary-general
of PAFMECSA, was successful in bringing Harry Nkumbula,
president of Northern Rhodesia's African National Con-
gress, back into the Pan African fold. Nkumbula's party
formed a coalition with Kenneth Kaunda's rival United
National Independence Party. Also, Kaunda accepted the
ANC's memLership in PAFMECSA.
It was further repoi ted that Kaunda, who also is curr-
ent chairman of PAFMECSA, hoped to unite separately Nor-
thern Rhodesia and the troubled Congo and simultaneously
achieve peaceful unification of the latter.
Nkumbula lost favor among Pan Africanists when he
fltrted with -ir Roy Welensky's notions of a "partnership"
in the Central African Federation The ANC L-ader also
had been criticized for his association with Tshombe, who
(was said to have largely financed Nkumbula's election
Some observers felt that Kaunda's theory was to get
Tshombe to turn his back on his friends of military con-
venience-Welensky and Prime Minister Hendrik F. Ver-
woerd of south Africa-mr the interest of African unity.
This feeling followed his apparent success with Nkumbula.
It might be noted that Prime Minister Lyrille Adoula of
the Central Congolesse government, L.eopoldville, is a
strong member of PAFMECSA.
However, still other observers said Tshombe and
Nkumbula saw the Northtrn Rhodesia-Congo tie-up in a
different tight. According to their speculations, Tsto.nbe
and Nkumbula see Kataing and Northern Rhodesia get-
-tg closer togetmerto forha o-67copper state-wwhicihwoufld
be the richest in Africa, and forgetting about the rest of the
Congo. Officials of Nkumbula's party argue that most of
th. people in Katanga have the same tribal origin as Nor-
thern Khodesians. The boundary cuts across Bemba and
ANC officials also point out that Tshombe himself is
a Lunda; his finance minister, J. B. Kibwe, is a Bemba of
Katanga, but their paramount chief lives in Northern Rho-
desia. They argue that there is greater tribal affinity and
common language between Northern Rhodesians and
Katangese, than between Katangese and Congolese.
Members of Kaunda's party have bitterly opposed
Tshcmbe. However, Kaunda apparently working on the
alleged unification plan, met with Tshombe and Nkum-
bula prior to the PAFMEC: A meeting at Leopoldville. The
trio met at the NortLern Rhodesian mining town of Kitwe,
near the Katanga border.
