In the little box (top right) you read the printed

of the KENYA IAILY NATION. He had prefaced those
words as follows: "already, there are developing
countries today in which new privileged classes
are springing up in place of the old alien colonial
privileged classes, with the difference that matters
Sre made worse by the illusion of self-goverment."
AS TO OUR OWN FRE&DOM FIGHTERS: despite the pee-

THE SEDITIOUS AND UNDESIRApLE PUWLICAlONS ACT COMMlENTARY No, 3

by Aaxdrocles
"10 -(1.) Except with his own consent,'no person shall be hindered in
the enjoyment of his freedom of expression, including freedom to. hold
opinions without interference, freedom to receive ideas and information
without interference, freedom to communicate ideas and information'with-
out interference (whether the communication be to the public. generally
or to any person or class of persons) and freedom from interference with
hi e correspondence."
Constitution of Dominica (1967)


Yet less than eighteen months later this Government so far goes con-
trary to the spirit of this Canst.itution that it proceeds; to negate, by
the Seditious and Undesirable Publications Act, 1968, the very provisions
enshrined in the Constitution and quoted above which protect this part'&'
icular fundamental human right, freedom of expression. No- wonder, then,
that when the lovable and trusting folk in the country parts first learn
of this through the Freedom Fighters, their first reaction ib one of dis-
belief. When, however, it is proved beyond doubt to them, a different
type of reaction, which it is not necessary to describe here;, replaces
disbelief. In particular, they take very badly the two following pro-
visions;
"6(6) The Postmaster or any Government officer authorisqd in that behalf
by the Minister may detain any postal packet suspected: to contain a pub-
lication the importance or issue of which is for the time being prohib-
ited, and may open and examine the packet and any such publication found
on such examination shall be forfeited and may be destroyed or otherwise
disposed of as the minister may direct."

S"8(6) The Court may, if it thinks fit, either before or after or without
service of the Vrohibition order in the Gazette or local newspaper, is-
sue a warrant authorising any member of the Police not below the rank of
sergeant and his assistants to break, enter and search either by day or
by night, any building or place specified in the order, and any enclosure,
room, box, receptacle or thing in such building or place, and to seize
and carry away every prohibited publication thore found, and to use such
force as may be necessary for the purpose."
The populace refuses to believe that in the absence, of some serious.
emergency like wtr, such powers can be provided by Governmvnt for use
when it decides to embark on some witch-hunt for books, newapaxers and
other publications. The people feel that they have been badly let down
for they did.not expect this of a Government from whom they had6. been led
to expect so much.
Let us examine some more of the provisions of this Act.
Section (3)(d) makes it a seditious intention "to incite amy person
or class of persons t9 commit unlawful violence or any crime ir. distur-
bance of the peace or any misdemeanor or felony." One asks; why elevate
to edition a crime, amply penally provided for already and recognised
by all as an unlawful act as far back as anyone carn remember? Thp nett
effect of these and similar provisions is to make sedition, formerly "
considered a very serious affair, one of the Commonr or garden variety of
crimes, not to be taken particularly seriously. Similarly with Bection
3(l)(e). This one, I fc0l, can be used with considerable effect against
Trade Unions in particular. It reads: (it is a seditious intention) "by
means of any false statement or wilful representation of tfcts or of the
motives or intentions of any person to create discontent amongst any of
Her Majesty's subjects". (Continued on page 4)

ANDROCLES (Continued) I can easily imagine a Trade Union leader talk-
ing to his members about some unfeeling and obstinate employer and being
S9 carried away as to "misrepresent" this employer's motives or intentions.
Do we really associate sedition with such everyday petty happenings?
Again, take Section 3(l)(f) which makes it a seditious intention "by
means of any false statement or wilful misrepresentation of facts or of
the motives or intentions of any person to promote feelings of ill-will
or hostility between different classes or races of Her Majesty's subjects".
Suppose a speaker kept to true statements, did not misrepresent the facts,
but from these drew unpalatable conclusions about the motivess and int-
entions" of this "any person" which, he claimed, were harmful to some
class of persons. Do you know that according to this law, the speaker
may be convicted for misrepresenting the motives and intentions of the
other person? The only slight difficulty, of course, is to establish
beyond doubt what were the latter's motives and intentions (see. Commen-
tary No.1).
It is interesting to se from Section 3(l)(g) that Government officers
have been promoted to a new grade of sacred untouchables in that it has
become sedition to assault them and not only this, but also to destroy
property. It is sedition "to advocate, teach, or defend the duty, nec-
essity or propriety of the unlawful assaulting or killing of any officer
of organised government or of the unlawful destruction of property"k.
So that if I, in anger, break your gate, I have committed sedition. I
suppose readers are by now suitably impressed.
I have said. before that much information is gleaned by looking close-
ly at some of the provisions in the original draft Bill before the Gov-
ernment was forced to. withdraw a few of them under public pressure.
Take, for example,-Section 6(1) of the original draft Bill:
"The Minister may, in his absolute discretion, by order published in
the Gazette or by notice served on the editor or publisher or prop-
rietor of any newspaper prohibit the importationinto the State or
the issue of any publication or part of a publication the import-
ation or issue of which is, in his opinion, contrary to the public.
interest......."
Don't you notice, as I do, how much verbiage is used in the above to
conceal the true intention? It is not importation of publications that
the law is. after. As a matter of fact, the draftsman gives his hand
away by associating importation of publications with editor, publisher
and proprietor when in fact he should have been referring to bookseller s
or importers generally, since editors etc. do not much concern themselves
with the importation of publications. But the main intention of getting
at local editors, publishers and newspaper proprietors is only thinly
veiled and much of the verbiage is intended to. cover up the three words
"or the issue". It is the issue not the importation, of publications
that.is the real object of this most unhappy and unsatisfactory exercise.
as anyone can clearly see. Incidentally, this ruse is preserved in the
amendment of this Section as finally passed.

When first we practise to deceive."

"What accident did Boland have," Murphy asked Nurse James
"Too many questions," she remarked, "Are you a doctor?"
"'Hbw did it happen?"
-I said it was an accident," she repeated.
"You can trust me," he assured her and drew closer so that the patients
.rPound might not hear. "I hope you're not mixed up in this," he contin-
ued, "They might soon wynt to pay you to keep your mouth shut."
She no-dded-. "You're something more than. a genius or a prophet," she re-
marked pathetically, "that's too late now,"
"VWat you mean?"
"'a.y've already increased my salary."
"Whit for?"
"Well," she replied, a bit roused, "Doctor said T have to keep my
mouth shut, and he was paying me, for that,"
"Wh' struck Boland?" he asked, "And you know something? You'll have.
to try and keep your mouth shut because if you allow anything to leak
out, b3t your life they'll soon have you lying on some mortuary slab."
`I :.-aven't told anyone else but you."
"Why did Dr kraithwaite strike him?" She was silent. "Good heavens,
aren't you afraid?"
'I im but I can't show it."
"Whir?"
"'Thc patients might suspect some malpractice is going on. Anyway, I
am so Qelieve now that he's been transferred to the Male Ward,"
Thoer Murphy said sympathetically, "Child, I'm awfully sorry for you.
You don'-s, think you should call the police? .... but-why did he have to
'do all that"'
don't know," Nurse James replied casually, "he said Boland was
getting; too far with his investigations."
"Di<. he ever talk to you about money?"
The niur.e pondered for a while, then said: "He did speak about money but
not of his."
"01' vt.o se?"
"EHe said he expected io get some money that Lulu had for him and that
if he succeeds he will give me a further increment on my salary," she.
said feanlEssly.
Muv phr was well satisfied with this piece of evidence, which checked
with he Ibank manager's accounts, the cheque made out in Lulu's name,
the a. mount it was made out for, and the fact that it was cashed the szIe
day. .inc. the only problem he had up his sleeve now was to get hold of
the w.'ness to thb cheque endorsement, Jack Bernard. Before ending his
social: diplomatic discourse to the nurse he moved to the wall where a
pieEe of bread wi s lying on the floor. He picked it up and peered at
.t, turning it oier and over, and yelled, "This can encourage a lot of
flij.,'" ':e walked back to her with the bread in his hand and still look-
ing I all gver said, "Well I must leave you now but before I do I must
waw you ;o keep clear of that girl, Lulu. I believe she's a dirty
tra.p. Sie might implicate you quite easily."
'She tcld me che made a good pull froir the bank manager."
Although iULrphy Pnew about this, he tactfully replied, "Oh yes, I heard
so. How much?"
"Fifteen thouFand dollars,."
r es, I heard that .... but tell me, what's become of this fellow
Jack .. where cloes he live now?"
"I -:r.'t know where he lives but I know he's Lulu's man...she told me

Part Two THE WOLVES by Alsid Joseph of Loubiere.
The boys dispersed silently, each with his own thoughts. There ,w.re
no questions. Joe had told them that everything depended.on speed, they
were to be back quickly to reinforce Joe and John. If all went well,
they would escape in the jeep. They took up their positions and waited.
It was a long wait, with the sun shining brightly, the sweat pouring
down their faces and chests in rivulets; then the signal was given.
The jeep was coming.
Peter and Frank, as was expected, spotted it first and relayed the
message to Joe, who in turn relayed it to the rest of the gang. The
jeep was moving laboriously up the steep road. As soon as it passed them,
Peter and Frank rolled over their stone which had been loosened. It was
a big stone and it hit the road with a loud thud. It lay across the
road but the boys did not see it. They were already running to join the.
rest of the gang......
When the signal was- given Joe whistled and a young lady stgped
into the road. She was immaculately dLressea in a yellow shirt ari a tight,
short skirt. Her hair was dishevelled, thus hiding most of her face;
moreover, there was a pair of dark sun-glasses over her eyes. $he had
on lipstick and looked very sophisticated but, in reality, the lady was
a boy. It was Mark, whose job it was to stop the jeep.
He stood in the middle of the road, his hands held high above his head.
He was waving them nervously while he danced up and down in a crazy man-
ner. As Mark saw the jeep coming, he put a terrified expression on his
face. The driver saw him and braked sharply to avoid hitting him.
"What.....what..?" he cried, but Mark did not gibe him a chance to
speak.
"An acciffent, an acicient." he screamed in a high-pitched voice.
"Come! Come!" he continued, "over there," he was pointing to the: north.
The; driver opened his door and got out while the guard on the left did
the same. Judge Maddox, also at the fromt, did not move.. The men were
puzzled and dumbfounded. The other guard in the back of the. jeep mada
as if to come out and Joe nudged John and said:
"Now, brother, Time to move; take the one at the front, I'll take the
other one."
The two boys dashed from their cover. Their faces were covered with
masks made of black handkerchiefs. The rear guard saw Joe coming and
screamed. At the same time he trieCd to level his rifle, but Joe was.
too fast for him. He grabbed the rifle, pushed it aside and gave the
man a solid blow on the jaWo The man staggered but did not fall. In-
stead, he swung his rifle butt and it caught Joe on the head. Simult-
aneously, the guard.kicked Joe right in the stomach. Joe- staggered and
fell forward; but as he fell, he managed to get his powerful arms asr-
ound his man. Joe exerted pressure and heard the man's ribs creak, then
crack, while the man screamed for all he was worth. Meanwhile, John
had already disarmed the other guard, but the rest of the policemen were
streaming out of the jeep. Soon, Joe and his friend found themselves in
a situation toodifficult for them. They found them seIves fighting ag-
ainst four trained policemen.
They tried all the tricks they knew to keep the copi at bay, ,but weze4
unsuccessful. The cops were angry and there is nobody more vexed than
an angry cop. Batons began swinging up and down. Joe grabbed a staff
from a cop and began fencing with another while two others circled him.
Then, he felt somebody's back against his and knew it ka.a John's. No-
body but John would think of something like that. They were fighting
for their lives, these two boys. Mark was lying on the ground,, his
pretty, girlish face a bloody mess. Joe kicked a cop in the g'2oin and
heard the man's wailing scream end on a sharp note a.Es a baton descend-
ed on his skull. Then the fighting was over, for the boys detailed to
roll the, stones had joined in the fight. But their job was not over;

they had to find and beat Judge--Maddox. They found him in the jeep,
together with the girl, a Government employee. He was kneeling, his
hands'tcovering his face while huge drops of tears rolled down his cheeks.
Judg6e.Maddox 'was praying something he had never done before in his
life'. He was;praying to a God he had previously believed to be dead,
and...as he pra yed, Maddox wished that he was never born. When he saw the.
masked men approaching he became. hysterical.
"Lord, Lord!" he screamed, "Help me, Lord. Save me, Lord: Lord., I be-
lieve;,in You. I repent of my sins. Lord I love You' Lord....I...I..
. .Lordc' Lord." His voice became a shattering escendo, a profound plea
for mercy.
"Judge Maddox!" shouted Joe angrily, "Get out,. I said get out." But
Maddox did not move. Instead, he waBs calling on the Virgin Mary.
"Virgin Mary, Holy Mary," he repeater', "Mother of God' Sweet Jesus..,,
..Holy Mary...." Joe could take no more. The girl was sitting there
paralysed with fear. There was sheer terror in her eyes. As Joe reached
in and yanked Maddox right out of the jecp,; she fainted.
Maddox lurched forward and landed on his face. Joe moved back and
punched him in the face with a left. Then he used his'right, and soon
he was using his left and' right' fists methodically. As he hit Maddox,
he rnnemebered when Maddox had sided with the school authorities when
they had kicked him out of school. When he remembered that Maddox had
given him a year in the penitentiary, he saw red and punched harder.
Soon, the stumping began. Maddox was held upright while one member at
a time went a few.steps away, took a running speed and landed feet .first
on Maddox. It was a brutal ordeal. Maddox lost consciousness, but still
the stumping continued. The Wolves experienced a perverted sense of ec-
stasy. Then, suddenly, there was an ear-splitting sound. It was' a po-
liceman's whistle.
One of the cops had regained consciousness' and had blown his whistle.
The Wolves were shocked into immobility, then Joe, the Boss, took over.
"John, he said, "knock out that sonofabitch. The rest of you, clear.
the road of these curs." As he spoke, Joe jumped behind the wheel,
dragged the girl out, and laid her down on the sidewalk.
"Frank, James, Albert," he called. -"Come with me. We have'to clear
the road of that stone. The rest of you have exactly two -minutes to
oatch up with us; then we move. Okay?"
Everything looked okay, then Joe got the surprise of his lif). A pri-
soan truck had just stopped before the stone they were supposed toi move
and on board were not prisoners but Defence Force men who had been camp-
ing at Portsmouth. Joe braked the jeep, reversed, and had turned around
before the soldiers realized what had happened. He collected the rest
of his men and race towards the other stone. As soon as they reached
it, the boys jumped out and desperately tried to push it aside., The
soldiers had alroad:r cleared theirs, They could hear- the truck coming.
Then, the road was learned and they were, moving. The road was lousy.
There were too many pot-holes and tool many sharp corners. Joe was ,a
good driver but the jeep was swerving precariously. He could hear the
truck roaring behind" them and he pressed down on the accelerator. They
sped forward and we:?e soon well ahead of the truck; but the soldiers had
walkie-talkies and ivould wire Roseau for help. It was only then that
the idea occurred to Joe.
The Layou river, -;he Layou river, he prayed. Let us reach'the Layou
river. God, he tho'ight, what a mess. The boy on his left suddenly
shouted: "Speed it 'tp, Joel Speed it up, man." 'So Joe speeded up..
Soon, the Layou b'bidge was- in sight and then they had reached it.
"John," shouted Joe, "take the money and all of you run for cover as
soon as I stop, oka;r'?"
Joe stopped'suddcinly and the boys' bailed out. Joe put the jeep back
in gear, presse:1 on the.accelerator and jumped out.

The Boycott

iN the Caribbean there is a tendency to substitute
Cabinet government for parliamentary government.
Constitutionally the majority of the territories have
reached cabinet status and have developed a party
system of government. The Cabinet system with gov.
ernment majorities in the General Assembly and in
the Senate, has resulted in heads of government in
several territories adopting the attitude that sovereign
power lies in the cabinet and that parliamentary ap-
proval is only a formality, with the Opposition
ignored or treated with scant respect.

There are occasions when the Opposition has
contributed to this attitude. The adoption of the b6y-
cott, as a means of protest prevents the Opposition
from playing the effective role it should in Parliament.

D URING lengthy boycotts, the Government con-
ducting the business of the state in Parliament
has no opportunity to listen to the voice of the minor-
ity. There are occasions when the electorate is so
misguided that it fails to return an effective Opposi-
tion. On these occasions the country is done a dis-
service and democracy abused.
