Today I wish to deal with another charge' which the Government, in
attempted justification of the Seditious and Undesirable Public.ations
Act, 1968, MkOQB against "the present run of newspaper publications"
in Dominica, viz. "that they are......calculated to damage the interests
and image of Dominica to its people and friends abroad". This will
give me the opportunity to recount acts of the Government which have
had as their principal damage the creation of a climate inimical to
investment from abroad.
What benefit could the newspapers have in damaging the interests and
image of Dominica? The present Government must learn that Dominica is
a. greater and more inclusive concept than that. of its Government of any
given moment. Thus those who write in the local papers are persons who,
by and large, have a wider and more permanent interest in the well-being
of this State than those who currently form its Government. It is silly,
therefore, to suggest that the activities of the writers in the local
papers are calculated to 4Smage the interests of Dominica. To a larger
extent than can be said of the members of the present Government, such
writers would, in fact, be damaging themselves since they hold a pos-i-
tion in the community nat dependent upon the whims, fancies and intell-
ectual shortcomings of the mass of voters.
The; Government should not expect the newspapers to suppress infbrm-
ation and comment on its wrongdoings. To provide information and to
comment on events is the very reason for the existence of newspapers
and writers. So unless the papers carry blatant untruths, they must
publish and comment upon local happenings, not excluding those relating
to Government.
If, however, in reporting events, the interests and image of Dominica
are injured, shall we blame the newspapers or those who caused the events?
A topical case is the passing of the Seditious and Undesirable Publi-
cations Act. I have no doubt at all that this has badly damaged our
image and our interest-s and, unless some clear wish to iuno this thing
is demonstrated by the community, will continue to do so for a long
time to come, In this case, could the newspapers have suppressed in-
formation and comment on the Act and thereby have failed to protect an
essential freedom on the ground that the image and interests of Dominica
would be injured? Does not clear thinking on the contrary indicate that
those who, in this matter, damaged our interests; are those who: conceived
and, despite popular protest, passed the law?
This is the point: the damage to the interests and image of Dominica
is occasioned, not by those who report and comment upon unhappy facts,
but by those who cause those facts. And this is what has been t;appening
here in recent times. As a matter of fact it iE because -he newspapers
of Dominica took up the Sedition law so strongly and so active.'-y that
the outside world is inclined to pardon us, having discerned that within
the country there exist fighters for freedom.
As stated earlier, there is no department of national life in which
the damage of bad government has been greater than in the field Df in-
vestment. Our Government, in spite of what some of the newspape-s have
been harping upon for some time, does not appea'. yet to realise, how
very sensitive investment is to tne local climate. For every one, con-
cern which will brave coming here through the attraction of the .on-
cessions of special Pioneer Status facilities, there are dozens irhich
will be chased away in a hostile investment climate.
Thus when the Premier makes a statement such as he is reported to
have made at Colihaut recently that the Sediticn law is meant for the
"big men", I don't know whether he realises whe t damage he is doing to
the investment climate. (Continued on page 4)

ANDROCLES (Continued) For any worthwhile investor looking for invest-
ment opportunitLes must clearly classify himself among the "big man"
in the context of Dominica and when he finds the Premier of the country
boasting of passing legislation for that particular category of persons,
the would-be foreig.n investor must reason that if such is tb' attitude
towards the "big men" of the .wemier's own country, what may it not be
to a stranger? Purse strings are therefore tightly drawn and eyes turned
in other directions. I personally know of many such cases.
Again, think of the Cadenas affair. The trusted, dedicated anti-
Communist attorney of an American investor of long standing in Dominica,
whose 'name rings mntal bells in world financial circles, is deported.
from the land at short notice and even request for a stay for a couple
of days during which to hand over to a successor is denied. Nobody, un-
like in previous cases of deportation, can imagine any reason for such
action, except to offer guesses at improper ones. To allay investment
fears, the government does not (can it?) give any indication of the
cause of the deportation, leaving it to the- rest of us to guess that
the location of our nuclear-powered reactor may be made known to the
Consider other Government attitudQs towards the bases of investment:
challenging the indefeasibility of Government-guaranteed Certificates
of Title to land; claiming private lands contiguous with beaches; expro-
priating road construction material off private lands; emphasising and
exacerbating class differences; a thinly-concealed disdain and dislike
of "capitalists" &c.&c.
'In the light of all this, who is dama#Lngthe image and interests of
Dominica: its Government or its press?
Now the great harm about this chasing away of foreign investment is'
that such investment would provide employment of the kind not readily
available here for our large army of annual school-leavers, par'ticularl:r
those who have no stomach for agricultural work. Thus many of our brigh-
ter young people are facing unemployment because of factors hostile to
foreign investment. But the curious thing about this policy is that
foreigners not in a position to initiate investment appear to have no
difficulties placed in their way in coming to Dominica. Thus it seems
that it is the "investment" element, not the "foreign" one, .which is
The Release's claim that newspapers in Dominica are. damaging the
country's interests and image "to its people and frien.-s abroad" is best
answered by considering the many violent reactions by Dominicans abroad
to the Government's latest outrage of the Sedition Act which have appear-
ed in the local press. In particular I wish to quote from an excellent
letter written from Canada by a young intelligent Dominican, Mr Hugh-
ward F. Pinard, which appeared in the "Dominica Herald'. of 31st August.
Mr Pinard wrote :"Believe it or not, actions like the one just taken
get wide publicity in the outside world, and bring serious repercussions
on the economic advancement of. the, island". This fron a son abroad.
As regards "its friends abroad", the incisive commer.t, of the Jamaic.
Gleaner was not based on the views of the Dominica press, but on a study
of the Sedition law itself, as is clear from the originality of the views
expressed by that paper.
It is thus manifestly clear beth from reason and from experience
that such damage as io done to the Dominica image and interests'arises,
from the action of Government' intrinsically and not from the newspa-
per reports or comments on them. Because of this, I qucte with approval
another section of young Pinard's letter (which I like, very much):
"Now more than ever,,, Dominica needs capable, uprighi. and dedicated
men to manage the business of Government and lead ut. on away from
the mire-of social, political and economic stagnatiorn".
While such sentiments prevail among our young Do7minicans, the. fut-re
seems assured.

Most goods can be produced much faster than they can be sold; advertised goods can be solid
much faster than goods unheard of by the public. Advertising in itself cannot actually

much easier.

Our poor situation is aggravating
in the Northern District of the State-
hood of Doninica. The Clifton Gov-
orneont School is in a dilapidated
state at pres.entj During those last
rainy days, before the Holidays started
children were sent back hone due to
flooring that was flooded with water;
isn't that a poor situation for our
children? And what will become of their
future? How can they regularly attend
their Classes, when the School is in a
very poor condition?..
Our head Teachorls patience is
exhausted and she decided after the'
expiration of the Midsunnor holiday,
she will not be returning to Clifton
School, because she was risking catch-
ing pneumonia at any tinel We are very
sorry should she be transferred, for
our children have made excellent pro-
gross with her nothing to complain.,
During the repent visit to the Schools
on July 24th by Top Officials, we were
eagerly awaiting them, for we believed
that they could solve our problems; but
lately we understood the Clifton School
was not programmed.
We dare say, that our Minister of
Education knows the condition is
disgraceful for what reason was it

Circumstances past and present urge one to consider the question, what bodies,
groups or other organizations 6arry weight or influence with the Governmenont of
our State; what groups,, if any, carry so nuch influence as to be able almost to
exQrt pressure on the Govornnent; in short, do we have any effective pressure
groups in this mini-stato of ours?
oPerhaps we night begin by pointing out what arc the standard, or if you liko,
mor'o oomaon groups that exercise pressure on govornnonts, or that are at least
so vibrant and powerful that a sensible government cannot afford to ignore them.
Trade Unions for one, can always be a potent and potentially upsetting force in
a country. Their memberships are generally'large and of the masses; they there-
fore "house" a large number of votes. Also, because of the nature of their
major weapon (the strike) they can do untold dama.o to a country's economy.
Then, perhaps we night say at the other end of the continuum, there is the
Employers' Federation. This body can also seriously affect a countryts oconomy
by its employment policy, its policy of (non-)conciliation and in other ways.
There is too, the Chamber of Commerce, in many countries a very respected and
powerful body which a sensible government, far front ignoring would invite for
consultation before the passing of a pros.ppF~ xo economic measure. The Chanber
of Comnnrce can have an even moro direction a country's economy than can an
employers federation. The'Chamber comprises the people that import and export,"
the people that fix prices, the people that run businesses. A knowledgeable
and able Chanber can havo considerable weight.
A potential force too, are big business concerns which contribute so large
share to a country's economic well-boing as to mako 'them important and
.otontially dangerous. Coming readily to mind are the bauxite companies of
Guyana and Jamaica. The pressure oxcrted by such bodies'is more often indirect
than direct. Our banana association is one such concern.
Lactly, we have political parties. Those, whoro they have good organisation
and leadership, can and usually are the most effective of pressure groups. The
very nature of a political party with its open and avowed aim of making itself
the next government, forces upon it the role of pressurizerr" or "pressure-
uongeor" if you prefer. I might add that where a political party (especially
one in opposition) joins forces with some or all of the pressure groups
contionod above, they can form a solid and perhaps unbeatable stream of
Alas, I cannot say that we have any really effective pressure group in
Dominica. One or two groups mny have a bit of influence with the government,
but our situation is unique. Can we really say that Trade Unions in this place
constitute an effective pressure group? Does the Govornnont allow the unions
to review proposed legislation to find out if anything in a proposed bill will
affect the unions too adversely for national comfort? Does the Government
consult with unions on natters of national econonie policy (oven wage'policy)?
Aro the unions thesolves aware of this aspectof their responsibility, or are
thoy simply incapable of fulfilling it (because of incorpotont leadership and
shortage of qualified'. people in their ranks)? Whatever may be the reason,
unions seem to have little influence on government actions.
Our Employors' Federation and Chanbor of Connorco are almost useless. What do
they do? Especially the Chambcr of Connorcoe, why does it'exist? Dominica for
one thing does not have a central economic planning unit, and secondly, has no
9cononist in the ninistries of finance and trade and industry whore they are
most needed. Especially in Dominica therefore, the role of the Chamber should
be oven greateror You seo,, cononically this place just drifts along with the
regional tide. The Government does not seem to understand the big issues of
the day, and coosee to hZarbour a natural bias against people like those who
comprise the Chanbor. In opite of all this our Chamber. just sits on its back
and accepts everything unconplainingly. Take Carifta (perhaps the biggest
economic dovelopmont to date). After Government signed the agroeeont they
found it necessary to impose a consumer tax and the poor people (Labour'Partyts
primary concern) found thencolves even poorer because their soft-drinks,
corned-beoof and so on were now more expensive with no corresponding rise in
*wages. (Continued on Pago Fifteen)

PRESSURE GROUP9 (Continued from Page Thirteen) Our Cha-bor of Comnerco has said
nothing on either Carifta, the "Consumer tax" or the increase in prices..of
oonsumer goods. So much for a potentially very powerful pressure group;,
Big business concerns. Perhaps the Dominica Banana Growers' Asso6iation can
be regarded that has an indirect influence on Go-voenrmont. After all, with our'
nono-crop (bananas) economic position, if the D.B.G.A.. does not have influence,
what will? ,'
Well, you might imagine our plight when not even our Opposition Party'carries
influence with the Governnent. Space does not pornit no to dwell on this, a
sorry state of affairs.
Doear people, pressure (or influence) groups have a useful function to
perform They make for more and better demonocracy. Through then, different
groups and groupings can mako themselves felt to a perhaps well-intentioned
but unwary government. The present Government is not accustomed to -pressure;
it has passed many bills which were easily accepted by us; we have been
apathetic, pacific and encouraging; the Governnoent kno this,. Well, they went
ahoad and passed the seditious act. Let ne be the first to place the blame
for the seditious act squarely on the shoulders o.t Dominicans (collectively).
