TO SIGHTS OF OPOITIC, by Androcles
"Tihe Prermier stated that he was very pleased when visitors saw no real signs of
opposition in this democratic state"' The foreGoing is taken from a re-port,
appearing in the "Dominica Chronicle" of 6th. larch, of a public meeting of the
ruling LeBlanc; party held in Roseau on 4th. March,
Jell, where do I start? Perhaps I can begin by stating that much the sae
can be said about'the Co~nunist-dominated states of Eastern Europe or of Franco's
Spain. Doubtless, the Premier thinks that opposition'only exists when a state of
near rebellion or revolution is in evidence. Poajibly he is comparing conditions
in-Dominica with those of, say, St, Kitts or Antigua, in which only a spark is
required to ignite a charged situation. If this is what he means by "no real sign,
of opposition", then his statement, as a statement of fact, may be allowed to sEanC-.
Another starting point can be the consideration that under no circumstances is
the absence of signs of opposition in a democratic state'a healthy sign or'one
bo be welcomed and the Premier should not boast bout it. Parenthetically, it m'-'
be conjectured that if visitors have indeed so expressed themselves to the Premier
it is evidence that they quickly and correctly evaluated the Premier's psychologi-
oal make-up and told him (perhaps as a preliminary sofening-up measure) that ]-,iu-.
of thing he is known to like to hear quite irrespective of whether or not it- is.
The absence of signs of opposition to an existing Government may be due to
one, or more of three main causesos (a) repression of an Opposition by the existing
Government ; (b) an abyssal. ignorance and lack of discrimination on the part of
theosa by whose votes at election time a Parliamen.try Opposition is not allowed to
marge and (c), often found in association with (b), a timidity of soul and lack
of will-power on the part of the minority to creotoe an opposition to the
Government. All of these factors are bad in thcmiselvos and are not to bo weL mlc
In Dominica factor (a) does not as yet exist, though chance remarks from
authoritative sources, indicate that its possibility at some future, diate is not; to
be dismissed. But. that (b) and (c) are the operative factors there can be no
doubt, in any discerning mind.
As everyone knows, a certain modicum of good sense is required for the operL-ti2.4-
of democracy, If you do not Ihve it, the democratic process produces the. most.
unusual and astounding results, one of these often being an opposition1eas Govern-
nont. If the Premier is boastful that his party was returned practically without
op-osition at the last General Elediori, he will have to justify the following
election ruses (I select only three out of a whole armoury of them-that X know of)
usod to induce the electorsi give the results desired and obtained:
TtQm I1. In one constituency the electorate was told that so corrupt was the
pro'-. .us Government that the Leader had stolen'a complete bulldozer, the property
of Government. (The successful party, however, did nothing about it when it oecaei
the Government of the country. .
.t-em 2. In another constituency the voters were warned that unless they
ret.rL'ied the Labour candidate, the area would be left in the cold in the event of
the Party winning the elections. (Among a developed people, this by itself would
have ensured the defeat of the Labour candidate.
Item 3, Voters in one electoral area were told that more had not beeoan ahl.vod
for that constituency in the previous -trm of the Party because the Opposition.
had opposed the schemes for that area I
It is not even necessary '-o mention additional ugji Unc!se used on the simple-
elcctorate. at election time, such as the policeman on duty at the polling' station
subtly pointing to his helmet as a reminder to those about to vote to cast their
votes for the hat, symbol of the winning Party.

A!IDIROCLES I have chosen just a' few
c-- :_ l-os of factor (b) to show the
kIinds of considerations upon which a
practically oppositionloss Government
was returned, Thus to a responsible
mind, thcro can be no pleasure in the
lack of an opposition so brought about-

numo2ical superiority of the Government

party and so, until quite recently,
there has existed nothing which could
be dignified with the title of an
opposition. This, too, is nothinI to
be happy'about by any citizen of
Don:inica...least of all the Premier of.
the State. For implicit in this state
of affairs is an erosion of moral qual-
ities issuing in duplicity, provarica-
tion, oven Machiavelaianism.
It is therefore in recognition of the
fact of.the dangers inherent in the
absence of an opposition party and the
near absence of a Parliamontary Opposi-
tion that some sections of the local
press have gallantly, though to the
scandal of some small-souled persons,
assunod the mantle of an opposition,
and I truly believe that when the poli-
tical history of this period comes
under Qnlightenod scrutiny the part
played by some sections of the local
pross in restraining an oppositionloss
Governcent will receive honourable

public statement that the absence of
an organized opposition in this State
is something to be happy'about. With
this view I cannot agree. And while
this attitude of the Premier's may ex-
plain acts like the effective failure
to consult with the Parliamentary
Opposition in vital matters like the
terms of licence to make use of our
natural resources issued to the Sunday
Island Port Authority, I think ho
should be reminded that at the last
count one-third of the eloctorato voted
for the then Opposition, and the best
third at that i.
If the Premier were xindeod committed"
by nature to democracy and if, mindful as.
he should be of the groat and obvious lacks
in his administration, he had really
wished to see improved the fundamental
bases of Dominica, he would rather be
regretting the absence of signs of opposi-
tion and regarding the situation in its.
true light -- a national tragedy.
T C!? CIjS P PETITION
TO the Hon,, o inistor for Homo Affairs
and TO WhOI IT. IAY CONCERN.
The humble petition of the Carib Council
of Dominica showoth as follows:-
eo wero invited by letter dated 27th
November, 1967 by the Hon. Minister to
attend upon Ier on Monday, the 4th December
at 10,00 am-Oo to hold discussions with the
Government on the matter of the ejection
of persons from the Carib Reserve, who,
in the view of tho Carib Council, had no
rjigt of residence within the Reserve.
At the conclusion of those discussions
the Govoernent issued a press release
implyin th thtthe-1 matter of concern was
the equality in rights of women, whereas
in truth the matter of concern was the
control of the Chief and Council over the
lands forming the Ros-rvo.
On the 2nd June, 1966, His Honour, The
Administrator, ir. G.C. Guy, had replied
to an earlier petition by the Carib com-
munity in part as follows:-
"In 1901 lr.S, ;oat demarcated 3,700 acres
SO land for.: Ohri uzso,-e A copy of the
map of this'land is attached. This
land the Government will continue to
hold in trist for the same purpose. Tho
Government, however, recognisos that-
individuals should be encouraged in
good farming practices and that the
best returns from the land can 1o got
by planting long term economic crops.,
those results can most readily be
obtained if farmers have title to the
land they cultivate,"
It is the strong conviction of the
Carib community that the a-sonce of ,indi-
vidual owmershlip is nrt the ioal obstacle
to the establishment of permancht crops;
but rather it is the lack of security of
tenure by the Caribs and the failure of
the Government' in its trust.

"Packing?" I asked curiously, and turned to dash up the stone steps, There
on the verandah stood Marna her tall body white against the crimson folds of

"Eaul", she cqlled; her voice wavered, "' I suppose you want to know what

Dear Madam, Cha&e is Healt

PROTESTER'S anger had gine down with the.

H. doesn't seem to be sure for whose
services (Anglican or Methodist) this
hymn was written. Why is he so sure
that Roman Catholics are responsible for
the change to the version that was sung'
at the funeral? Even if this is so, is
anything against Christian faith and
morals expressed in the version? Was
this change brought about by anti-ecumen-
ical motives? Was this change made in
these ecumenical days?
If he so strongly disapproves of
changing a hymn, he should make a proper
study of all hymns, for in whatever
church he worships.he will find versions
of hymns differing from the original.
To prove this I invite him to come to
the Presbytery to take a look wit h me
'at, a few hymnals including "Hynmns Ancient
and iodern.r' "The Methodist Hymnbook"',
and the '"Wstminster Hymnal". Hea could
then see who changed what0

livered at the Roseau Cathedral on Sundre

that Twriti&&such a letter is rendering
a.disservice to ecumenism, for those of
Roseau (and of Goodwill too) who heard
me can confirm my saying that all these
unimportant differences, all the apparent
hurtful things Testh.esterday should be
gathered or bundled as the "cockle" or
"zizanie" and thrown away or burnt.

THOSE DAYS ARE GONE .(Autobiography)
by Chris Reiter
How I Go to the West Indies, Start School
and neet Now Friends: and If I Tell You Any iMore
You Wontt Have to Read This,
lThCn. I was thirteen years old, I left Canada, I loft 'my old hone; my old
school; 'ny relatives and ny friends to cone and live in the West Indies. Some
of then, I can assure you, were glad to be rid of no and I'll bet sonm Dominicabs
feel the sane way.
To be able to cone to the Wost Indies is a dream which never cones true to
nost people; fortunately, nino did.
Uhen my another and I arrived in Antigua aftcr four hours on a jet plane., we
want to .the Blue Waterse Hotel., where we rclaxoed, drinking and listening to the
sweot conbo music. (My father didn't cone as he was attending a University of
Toronto 6-week course. .In fact he didn't cone down until 5 weeks had dlapsod.)
That night I couldn't sleep for the breaking of the waves on the shore,and.ny
thoughts of what the next day would bring, kept racing through my mind keeping- M.
wide awake. --
NoI ot day, we went to St.Kitts where we.were to stay for about two months.
When I stopped of the plane (LIAT) into the dazzling sunlight, I perceived a -'
beautiful girl and her parents. I was noro interested in, the girl, so I didnnrt
worry about the parents. I found out later that we wore going to live at their
hro-ic duriLng *oub stay. .
"Oh boy I I thought, "An I going to have fun?"U
had a groat tine in St.Kitts, as I had predicted, with dancing, girls, fetcs-
.horso-back riding, basking in the sunshine and swinn-mng:in the'sea. I visitoed-the
fort.'on Brinstone Hill. Everybody treated no very woll. This, I thought, w-as
living it up'
About...a onth later, I was. invited to Novis to stay with sone friends for
about a week. This trip front S-tKitts to Nevis in the snall six-scater plane Iwas
za hair-iasing journey. I thought the world was coning to an end. Here (in Nlevis).
,another list of incidents and excitement, piled one on top of the other, left
imprints on my mind.
One incident astonished ne and it will astound you too, dear readers, Young
Charley Yarwood (5 years old, one of the people's sons that I was staying with),
stated that he could climb a coconut tree.,
"Surc'," I retorted, "a dwarf coconut tree, perhaps?V
He beckoned me and led no to a towering tree, 1 looked at it all.agape and
figured Charley was crazy to say he could climb up this tree But no, Charley
took his first slow stops up the tree, monkey fashion. Then, like a bullet but of
a gun, he shot up the tree and a f ow minutes later smiled an d waved down at no fro
the top. I stood there flabbergasted and dumbfounded. A puff of wind could have.
knockeo no over..
e011, I wasn't g.--:iin to let this little boy get the better of ne, so-I tried
to climb up the tree too, but to no avail. All my offortsa woro unrewarcdd -.nd
fruitless. What anguish 1 but what could I do about it? I couldn't climb up the
tree, so let's face it; he was better than I,
I also wont swimming and fishing in Nevis, and sightsooCint, then returned to
St\.Kitts and two weeks later cano, to Dominica.*
Don-inica fascinated ne. It still dbes. I had heyer seen such forest ain .
greenery and beauty before. It is an Snchanting island.
I went to school four days later at the St.Mnry's Acadony, and there I passed
my year. In the first torn of this school-year, I was lprosented with a i3rd
Honours" certificate for my good scholastic grades. This is because I have friends
who study and have good, clean fun. As far as I can s.oo, I stand to gain.
I an not sure of ny future profession. One thing I: want to be. is a good stu-
dent with a good standing in the school, and I an slowly achieving this. I will
always try to do my best, keeping in nind the saying:-
I"Man proposes, but God disposes."

THE NEWS that lan Smith's government has
hanged three Africans in Rhodesia in de-
fiance of the Queen's reprieve is nothing less
than cold blooded murder.
It is now abundantly clear that the Courts
of Rhhodesia support the Smith's regime and that
they will not brook interference of any sort
trom Britain, no matter how reasonable may the
approach or how valid the grounds.
It is high time that Mr. Harold Wilson
and his government stop the puerile attempts at
enforcing the feeblest of sanctions and do some-
thing positive to bring this murderous gover.-
men, to heel.
Now that the three men have been hanged,
despite Her Majesty's reprieve given on humani-
tarian grounds, there are cries for vengeance
from many parts of Africa, from other Common
wealth countries and perhaps from other nations.
This murderous act will in due course be
dealt with b1 Almighty God. but mankind has
a serious obligation to protect the liberty and
life of his weaker brother, and so every Kittitian,
every West Indian, in fact every right thinking
person should join in raising the cry, '"Down
with the Smith's Government".
If ever there was a time when the use'of
force was justifiable it is now. The cub has
slapped the lion but will there be any disciplin-
ary action taken? The answer to this will be
made known in the-coming weeks.
