THE OPPOSITION WALKOUT by Androcles

Why did the Government reject the very sane and perfectly reasonable motion
of the Opposition that the second reading of the Bill relating to the concessions
t:b be given the Sunday Island Port Authority Company be postponed for ten days
to enable proper consideration to be given to the provisions of this far-reaching
law? I def; the usual protagonists of the LeBlanc. Government -- the "Dominica
Chronicle" and its contributors "Peter Simple" and "Tabou", certain clerics of
certain churches in Dominica (the Methodists excluded) and all Trhc hangers-on who
are benefitting or hope to benefit personally in one way or another from this
Government -- to give a satisfactory answer to this question. I also invite the
more educated persons in the villages to find out from their representatives in
the House of Assembly why they-.voted to turn down the motion. I want to know
whether everyone of the people's representatives must-at all times blindly follow
the antics of the LeBlanc Government, even to the detriment of their constituents'
interest? In fairness I may add that the representative from Portsmouth some-
times manfully takes Dis own line.
If ever superfluous proof were required of the immeasurable superiority in
sense of the Opposition over the Government you have it here.
Before I begin an analysis of the situation, I draw attention to a very import-
ant and enligdKaing point. MlrBrtce Robinson who represents the Company has 15b
his actions made it clear that he, too, is of a far superior mental order than'the
intellectual pygmies now governing us. Look at his attitudT6 to the Opposition.
He is willing, nay, anxious, to take it into his confidence. He giants the inter-
views the Opposition seeks and, no doubt, as far as it is politic, keeps it informed
of prospects and developments. Why? As an intelligent man Mr.Robinson realizes
that the Opposition of today is the Government of tomorrow and this particularly
when we are talking in concession-terms extending over thirty years. Mr.. Robinson
is also intelligent enough to realise th.t With the wealth of the island's brains,
at its disposal, the Opposition will have a useful contribution to make. It was
in order therefore, -I imagine, to give the Parliamentary Opposition a chance to
consult with the non-Parliamentary brains of the country that Mr. Henry brought
forward his motion for the postponement of debate for ten days. How different
from both Mr. Robinson and the Opposition was the conduct of the Government which
to its shame, must stand condemned before the bar of intelligence?
Now as to the facts not yet mentioned. The Bill makes provision for a number
of encouragement concessions proposed to be given to the Company for thirty years.
Very vital things are involved, including loss of revenue, the disposal of the
physical heritage of the country and the social and economic consequences of the
whole Cabrits project. The Opposition gets intimation of the contents of the
proposed legislation shortly before the meeting and therefore does not have the
time to give it the important consideration it deserves. As for the ordinary
citizen he does not get it t~L all before the meeting of the House at which it is
being discussed. Is it not therefore~nabii i1y reasonable and sensible that opportu-
nity be given to digest and carefully consider this most important matter before
the country-takes the final plunge? And a plunge to last thirty years? Among
other things, do we not require to ensure safeguards such that the distresses on
account of racialism our own people are now undergoing in England are not allowed
to creep in here in the area of the project.
Sh'rarm -ig-iAB superior intelligence, the Opposition had earlier taken the course
of asking Mr.BrIce Robinson, the representative of the Company, whether postpone-
ment of debate in the House for another 10 days would in any way inconvenience him.
Not at all, replied Mr.Robinson on behalf pf the Cprpany standing to gain. This.
fact was made kpown, to the Government, Yet in spite of this, the Government
refused to postpone the debate and using its huge majority threw out the Dpposi-
tion motion. The Opposition promptly walked out. I ask my countrymen to join
me in acclaiming this act of the Opposition.
Nost, consider two small-minded reasons given by. the Government for the
rejection of the motion. (concld. on page 4.)

AIIDROCLES (fr,P.P2) The first is that
the Governmnent -s often accused of dila-
torinoss and procrastination in public
matters and will therefore not be so
accused in this one, The valueless
quality of this reasoning is found in
the fact that the beneficiary of the
legislation was quite agreeable to a
po etponement of the passage of the law
to thirty days if necessary. The other
mini-minded reason advanced is that the
so-called CARIFTA agreement is just
around the corner and it is required
that tax exempt projects in each terri-
tory be declared within a very short
time if we are to get admission into
that body. Can you imagine Dr. Williams
of Trinidad cutting short his parliamen-
tary procedures, supposing he was in
process nf negotiation on a scheme has-
ing comparable economic. implications for
his country as S.I.P.A. is projected to
have here, merely because CARIFTA is
seeking a list? He would almost cer-
tainly do one of two things: either
call for a postponement of the CARIETA
meeting or else put the scheme on a
tentative basis, further information to
be supplied later. This is how a states
man behaves. And to manke the Dominica
stance more ridiculous is the the fact
that, without any possible doubt, the
other signatories to CARIFTA need
Dominica more, vastly more, than Domi-
nica needs that organization, certainly
as regards the immediate future, Do you
therefore see the political and econo-
mic consequences of representation by
pygmies
And now, what ane the protagonists
of "constructive" criticism of the
Government going to say in the face of
such a action? Note that by the frequency
of such pettinessos it is not a lapse
but an attitude, a habit of mind which
indicates such courses to this Govern-
mJ at. Where,I ask, is the scope for
"constructive" criticism when even the
Parlixamntary Opposition is not accorded
the opportunity and facility of con-
structively oriticising in a matter of
such vital concern to this and succeed-
ing generations? Will these protago-
nists of "constructive" criticism in
future keep their big mouths shut on
the question of the criticism .of Govern-

The conclusion is clear: we cannot
maLe headway in Dominica while so imp-
ortant an institution as Government is
in the control of these ..........

'A Blot on Society
Please permit ne space in your valu-i
able columns to express my views as I
notice the Society in which we are now
living is taking a turn for the worst,
My reasons for saying so, is based
ainply on what I witnessed'at the Court
House on Friday the 2/2/68. Though of
course I read with great delight the
descriptive extract given by JUSTE SI,
on the issue of last Saturday's Star
under his caption (A-SHORTT STORY BEPED
OT REAL LIFE).
After the foronan had pronounced in
qti.ot tones the words IOT GUILTY, dur-
ing the trial of Baynos Bontiff, in
response to this verdict. there was:an
irnnodiate outburst of hooliganism
around the procints of the Court House,
causing the administration of the court
to halt for about 15 minutes. After
,this chaos was abated, the accused was
ordered to leave the court, during
which tine I witnessed a joyful arowd
of about 2,000 in full blazing spirit
of savagery and hooliganisma arching
throuZgh the streets, starting from the
Court House.
This was in response of what do you
think Madam? This was in support of
the verdict given by the unique 9 man


V I E S


jury of this State. A man was on trial
for the murder of a prominent law en-
foronomnt officer of the State active
besides during the execution of his
duty. In places like England the indic
nont and verdict night have been very
different.
Such nob conduct reflects straight b,
on the society in which we live and
causes one to believe that the enforce-
ncnt of law and" order will not prevail
in this State. This scene I say should
never be witnos.sd in a State emerging
towards independence and civilization.

"You dot think Daddy go and drink rum and he cannot walk down?"
"Thatts what you will say; I khow you dontt care... Somebody's at the door, go

"Ay ay, dat very funny; what he doing so novw?

Mrs. Seawell was obviously anxious bout her husband's -,hereabouts. On her
n.1eZgiio ts advice, she left her fifteen-year-old daughter in charge of her younger

The second oldest of the children, a thirteen-year-old girl, really lazy but
rather adventurous, suggested,

"Is dat we will have to do; its's getting late."
"I ccning oo Mama," shouted one of the boys,

With that, Mother, children and neighbour set off for Green Hill. When they had
almost walked a mile without any signs of Mr. Seawell, the children began acting
timidly. What they did not realise was that their poor mother was jwst as worried
as they were afraid.

right up to Green Hill tonight," So, with a heavy heart, Mrs. Seawell started with
her train, back to the town, Very little was said; there was no time to lose.

At hone, they met several of the neighbours, who having heard the news had gath-
ored to find out what was taking place. While all this was going on, Audrey, a
rather studious girl who also belonged to the neighbourhood, had been too busy
reading Shakespeare, to take any note. She was very surprised therefore, when she
finally looked out and saw the uneasy group.
"WVhat's ,oin'- on?" she inquired.
"Mr.ISenwell dot come down yet; look de truck ready; dey going to look for him.
,tMy husband gone too."
Audrey (who liked nothing better than these exciting episodes) ran off without
another word and boarded the truck. There were. now eight other people on this man
hunt, and from them she learned of the previous happ6nings. The children giggled
restlessly and enjoyed the ride; the grown-ups were tense mad expectant. Audrey
hopel that nothing too serious was the matter, for she too found it fun, riding a
truck to Green Hill at th-t time of night. Was there any shadow of a comparison
between this and something in Shakespeare's "AS YOU LIIE IT?"

In a very short while, the first house was sighted, So Mr.Seawell had not even
been on his way to town Now for the inquiries.

All through the village went the group until they came to an elderly man, a
vegetarian. He had apparently been to bed drunk, for he seoemd to think it was
Satuirdcay, when it was actually 11.00 p.m. on Friday. He kept saying that the same
afternoon he had seen Mr.Seawoll quite sober and that he had loft for home, carrying
two stems of sugar cane on his shoulder, Mrs, Seawell, however, knew that her
husband had been home the day before with the two sugar sane stems. The company
then left the old man.and proceeded to another house.
To this last house, Audrey and the children did not go. Their sharp eyes had
caught sight of a pile of sugar cane, which had obviously been'collected for trans-
portation, probably to a sugar-rill. On this they went to workputting as much as
they could into the truck. They pretended to be listening for the rest of the
company(s findings. After a41, -.what was there to be so boastlyexcited about?
Green .Hill was still in Don inica .
Ihoro at last, they had got some good news. The man they sought had last been
seen at his friends house, just a few yards away. The group had now gained
entrance to the house outside of-which lay two ether stems of sugar cane bound to-
gether. Lying on the floor, stretched out to his full length, was Mr. Soawel with
a blanket around him and a pillow beneath his head.
11Depuis hier moi ca tphono; moi ca 'phone, eux pas ca comprendre moi."
These were the first words uttered by him when his wife finally succeeded in
waking him. Everybody laughed.
"You were too drunk to be understand by anyone, least of a11 on the telephone,'
Audrey commented cheekily.
i"ho, mo? Is not drunk I did drunk non, I did too tired to walk ddwn, but I
just decide to stay."
While the adults said goodbye and thank you to the host, I.rSeawells son carried
the two stems of sugar cane to add them to those already on the truck. His sister
was laughing with Audrey, who was considered quite impertinent by everyone but her-
solf.
'"E2 boh oui boy exclaimed his mother, "You didn't -care if your father had,
died self, but is cane ypu looking for to full your guts "
"But Ha, he alive; is only drunk he drunk..."
"Yes I put in Mr. Soawell, "what the hell all ya care about mo? Since all-you
get food is all, I can die now, is not all-you business."
His own daughter answered, UTell.we do' want rum to kill you; Is that why we

A MORNING IN THE GARDEITS
It was a glorious morning in early March, The dew still hung on each grass-
blade and leaf, making rainbow tapestries that defy description, as the awakening
sunbeans stole into the heart of each round,crystal drop and settled there. A beau-
tiful bird-chorus filled the earth with-riotous melody as the happy-hearted songsterf'
flitted front tree to tree as if saying TGood morning' to thei- neighbours. The sun
rose up higher and higher with all its golden majesty and drenched the sleeping
town with its translucent sheen.
I. wandered through the sun-filled confines of the village until I came to the
Botanical Gardens. It's a Jovely place, sweet-scented, filled to the over-flowing
with fragrant herbs and colourful bushes (especially the pointsettas, which dotted
the green ground here and there, splashing their vivid colour everywhere). But
regardless of the overpowering, and oaerwhelning olour (red), there was a buoyancy
in ny footsteps, mingled with an upraised feeling, as though I had suddenly discov-
eroc gold; (and gold I did discover),'in the brilliant rays of the awakening sun,
which shed its streaming rays'upon me, I felt light-hearted and glad, walking thrc'
that enbalned, enchanted tine, -- enchanted, eabalmed only to those'who feel and
.respond to the vibrant chords of nature --.
Then out of my happy and wonderful feeling, a discordant cry arose:- "Helas I
sa yo kay dee poe say nagyion sala, Yo ka anee veenee aypee chway pool say moon l-
an station; lere anyon weefay yp nann yo ka dee say mal noon fer yo. Gay yo... I
I looked and saw two small boys, between the qges 8 -10, dragging a big crocus
bag behind them. At the wonants words (she was one of the labourers at the Botani-
cal Garderns) the boys began running, dragging the bag behind them. -Absurdly,. I
wanted to hugh, but to give a bit of a'cliriax (none of then,neither wonan nor boys)
had-yet noted ny presences- I chuckled, andt taking my notebook and with pen uprais-
ed : called out, "Hey you I Stop I "
Well, talk'about letting fall a ton of bricks I My voice, being something to be
reckoned with, those poor boys gave one, wild, fearful, uncobprohending look in the
direction of that booing voice, and seeing ne, with pencil.still upraised, took to
their heels, forgetting their ill-begottened gain. Honest, I couldhear their pant

"T :"- E SCENE IN JAMAICA by a Toar:-gassed-Corres-

Hobby Sinpson had niet with the cnnity of West Indian" when, in "Captain.s Story",
he wrote of the danger stunning front the high emotionalism and easy inflannability
of Wost Indian crmrds, but ind"aod, West Indians do. not seoo able to lose. They
cannot accept defeat manfully, taking in stride the glorious vicissitudes of the
gentlonanly game When defeat uaimes its odious head, it is not with anger,
accusation, violence, anything -- and in the fourth day of the Second Test match
of the current M.C.C.- West Indies series, the hooligans of Sabino Park saw defeat
sharing then in the face and they could not take it.,
Some of the connentators remarked that the crowd was annoyed at Butcher's dis-
missal and at the condition of the wicket generally. Peter Bailey seemed almost
convinced that the wicket was so badly prepared that the crowd just could hot take
it an4 more and gave vent to their feelings in the bottlo-tLrowing epidode. I
think he has missed the point. The bottles began coning because with Butcherts
dismissal, many nonbers of the crowd saw one of their last-hopes gone and the
spectre.of defeat dangle nore menacingly above their heads.
This is only part of the cause. We have to look at the nan who in ny opinion,
was the principal (though innocent) cause of the rioting Jiaaican umpire Douglas
Sang-Hue. He had long been in disfavour with his hone crowd. We can go as far
back as 1965 to the first Test Match between Australia and W.I. Sobers was given
caught at slip By Sinpson and did not appear pleased with the decision. This was
all the cbowd needed to vocally vent their spleen against the umpire, who happened
to be Douglas Sang-iue. More or less the same people go to see cricket and (at
least in these matches) th6y do not forget easily. On the fir-b day of the Second
Test in the current series, readers will remeobor that Edrich was bowled off "no-
ball" front Griffith. The umpire was Douglas. Eang-Hue and the crowd was terribly
disappointed (perhaps understandably) and went on to heap abuse on this "daun
Chinoy-man 1 Most of the people who cane to Sabina Park on Saturday (the thirds
day) did.so mainly to see Sobers bat (Sobers is a real favourite with Jacaicans;
perhaps second in this respect only to late Sir Frank; Sobers has only to appear-
for the crowd to go wild). Well, there was Sobers facing the first ball front
Snow; he got struck on the pad, the fieldsnon appealed and the finger that went
up was that of Douglas Sang-Hue. Overwhelmingly disappointed, the people could not
have cared less about the fairness (or otherwise) of the decision it was Sang-Hue
there at fault again and they let him have a barrage-of verbal accusations. It
was here that the chants "We want Sang-Hue" began. (Boar in nind that one had to
be anong the masses to appreciate what was really happening not %n sone closed-
up air-conditioned broadcasting or press booth).
On Monday West Indies were really facing Cefeat and Dutcher fished at once on
the leg-side; Parks fell in bringing off a brilliant catch as clear as day to
everyone on the ground (except perhaps to those on the 'grounds' where the bottle-
throwing actually began.) Butcher hardly waited for the umpire's finger the
finger of Douglas Sang-Huo. The explosion had been boiling for too long it had
to burst out and this controversial catch.allowed by SangHue was enough to spark
it off. To make natters -.orse, Sang Hue hesitated for a second or two before de-
ciding. One bottle cane; two bottles. six, eight then Cowdrey (later joined by
Gravonoy) bravely went up to the fence an.d stood amidst falling bottles trying to
quell the crowd, The riot was still in its nascent stage and in my view could
have been choked off by one nan Gary Sobers (who was at the wicket at the tine).
I kept feeling that he was the nan with all the influence on the ground; the nan
whon the crowd admired and almost adored, but while Cowdrey and Graveney wore
trying :their hopeless best to still'the mob and the rest of the English teua went
out removing broken pieces of glass, Sobers stood looking on. I cantt help
believing that if the riot had to be stopped in the early stages, it could be done
not by the English cricketers, by alien officials in coat and tie, or by armod
policcmn,, but by their own hero and idol Sobers himself.
Little could be done; the cricketers took to the pavillion and the police took
over. Separated by a fence from the violent sections of the crowd, they theosolveLu
could do little. More bottles nore boxing. Abbut fifty policenent stood in
line around the fence. More bottles more boxing. (concluded on back page)
