ARTIFICES by Androcles

If the defeat of Labour in England exposed the sterility under certain
circumstances of public opinion polls, in Dominica it sent shock waves and
caused panic in the ranks of the ruling Labour Party and well it might
Coming so soon after the victory of the Freedom Party in Ceylon, it gave
twinges of discomfort in the hierarchy of the local Labour Party.
The public of Dominica clearly remembers one of the arguments used by
the local Labour Party in the election campaign of 1965. In England the
Labour Party had just won the General Election and we in Dominica were
told by the Labour Government in office here that if we wished to get the
utmost sympathy and financial consideration from England, our clear duty
was to vote for Labour. We did. Now the situation has been reversed and,
by parity of reasoning, we must locally get rid of Labour and put in a
non-Labour Government to deal and bargain with the new Conservative Govern-
ment which is now the lawful Government of England. Correct?
It was against this background of reasoning that the local Labour Govern-
ment went into shock when the news that even England had turned its back
on Labour was received. Actually, of course, it was only one more of the
several disasters which have beset the local Labour Government in very
recent times, casting gloomy shadows in its path.
At this point in time, something happened which has the population puzzled
and concerned. I have heard numerous persons come to the same conclusion and
"Fifty million Frenchmen cannot be wrong". A number of civil servants with
one non-civil servant as a decoy took to WIBS, Dominica, in panel discussion
to try their best to wipe out from the minds of listeners the gathering con-
viction that since the people of England had become disillusioned with Labour,
a similar fate awaited the local counterpart at the coming General Election.
It was the aim of the Civil Servants on the panel to show that it was
not disillusionment with Labour, but the racist antics of Enoch Powell, which
was responsible for Labour's defeat. Now this is a clear case of angels
fearing to tread since the pundits of England are still trying to make out
what went wrong with their sampling of public opinion and there has not yet
been suffient time to analyse completely the phenomenon.
There are many topics, perhaps of more immediate and certain relevance
to us, which could well form the subject of a panel discussion but are never
so treated. Incidentally, I understand that the failure of British Labour
at the polls was not allowed to come over WIBS until the panel discussion
was arranged. The question is: why is it that the topic of the results of
the British General Election is the one chosen for discussion with all its
unknowns, yet purely local debateable topics are never allowed? The answer,
of course, has already been given.
One more point. For better or for worse, the people of England have put
away Labour and returned a Conservative Government. We must acknowledge their
right to turn the Government of their choice and admire their sense of alter-
ation of Governments. But our relationsship with EnLland being what it is,
we should be prepared in our own interest to deal with any legitimate Govern-
ment of England; and it therefore seems to me to be the height of imprudence
to adopt a hostile and overcritical attitude towards the new Government of
England since there is a British listening post right in our midst in these
islands. And in any case ordinary fairplay suggests giving a man a chance to
show himself before condemning him. Consequently, it is only the desire to
prevent the defeat of Labour in England having a deleterious effect on the
thinking of local people about Labour which can to my mina explain the step
taken and the tone of some of the panelists of that discussion.
Meanwhile, local Labour will have to face up to the dilemma arising from
their original stand that: if it is to the interest of Dominica to have a
Labour Government when EnLland has a Labour Government, now that England
has a non-Labour Government, what type should we in Dominica have at this

From all accounts and appearances, the two existing political parties will
each contest every one of the 11 electoral seats at the coming General Elec-
A straight fight between the parties is the ideal and the electorate will
much prefer this. But already there are rumours that the weaker Party is
planning to plant a number of Independent candidates for the purpose and with
the object of vote-splitting. This is nothing new with that Party. This
tric:z was successfully practised way back in the 1961 Election as regards the
RoscaA South constituency. It is now being rumourod that the same stale old
trick, with the sane old tactics in the same constituency will again be played.
Thero is also news that the game will also be tried in the South-Eastern elec-
toral district (La Plaine, etc.) by one of Labour's henchmon.
"How art thou fallon:" is the thought which'coins "to rind when a onco-powor-
ful Party finds it necessary to plan this type of strategy in this Year of
Grace 1970. It is pretty obvious that it is in a bad way indeed if it has to
resort to practices and stunts long since discarded.
One glance at the results of the last General Election in 1966 shows that
there is no place for Independents. All but one lost their deposits on that
occasion and the mood to have no truck with Independent candidates is even
stronger today. The electorate of 1970 has been politically educated enough
to rocognise. that votes for Independents are votes wasted. They see even more
than this. They realise that in very many cases, Independents have an under-
standing with a Party having as its object the deflection of votes from the
othor Partyfthus frustrating the wish and the will of the majority of the
electorated 4 The classic local example of this was the case of Mr. Gerard
klinston, now Speaker of the House, in 1961. He stood as an Independent*candi-
date tatag enough votcs to eliminate Mr. Baron in favour of Mr. LeBlanc, the
present Premier. But when Election was over, the people learned that in fact
the effect of 'the independent candidature was to split the aggregate vote and
gain the success of -Ir, Lcalanc.
In the process, however, the voters of Roseau South, particularly those wh;o
voted for the Independent candidate, were made a nockery of. The electorate
of Douinica must administer a crushing defeat on anyone who attempts a vote-

ON VIOLENCE -- AND HOPE by Parry Bellot,

The Industrial Revolution. The Triumph of early Christianity. The Begin-
nings of Democracy. The American Revolution, The Abolition of Slavery.
All these have at least two things in common: they were all deeply significant
in the history of mankind and they were all accompanied by violence. One does
not need to be an authority on history to appreciate that much of the important
social developments of our world contained violent activity of one sort of
another and invariably on a wide scale.
What we consider as significant or important in history almost always boils
down to that time when"a particular change in the social structure of the people
took place. Five examples are quoted above! there are many more. The operative
word is change, From time immemorial, change in every and any form has been a
fact of all life. Unfortunately, non-acceptance of or at least a reluctance to
change has also been a fact of life. The nature of man to date retains an inner
resentment of change so that when change comes as it must it is invariably
accompanied by much turmoil.
All this time ( say from the 1940's ) people all over the world are much
concerned with social prejudice but more important, racial injustice. Most
people want to correct the present predicament. But there is opposition as
there always is, and always will be, in any issue. Much as we are sorry that it
will occur like hurricanes and earthquakes it seems only reasonable to expect
much violence before the Race Revolution ( and other social changes ) comes to a
peaceful settlement. This appears to be what naturally occurs, using history as
Of course, there is no law that says history always repeats itself. In fact,
we have just been saying that anything is capable of change. So we should examine
. why violence is still a part of the protest scene, even in this enlightened age.
Simple. It almost always brings the sought after results. Again, much as I
regret it, this is what has happened in the past and continues to do so even in
modern times. Consider the evidence ....
1966 Watts ( Los Angeles ) Riots: U.S.Government and business immed-
iately moved in to improve negro housing and employment.
1968 "May Revolution" in France: student and Labour disruptions finally
overcame the old and outdated economic practices personified in
De Gaulle.
1969 Black Students appear with guns at two U.S. Universities: this is
followed by the Administration agreeing to start courses on Black
history and culture.
1969 Sir George William. University: students had requested 3rd party
investigation of racist professor, full investigation commenced
after computer damage.
1970 Japan student riots- under such upheaval the Prime Minister
eventually agrees to pressure the U,S,A, to hand back the island
Okinowa, occupied since 1945.
1970 Trinidad army revolt and riots: government then attaches priority
to schools and employment for the masses, better housing, and
reforming local government.
In all the above cases, it was the violent activity of those advocating change
which finally brought the desired results. Need wve say more ? Surely we can now
understand why violence is not usually rejected as a means to an end. It, or the
threat of it, always seems to work i Note too, that the changes mentioned above
all seem to have been for better.
There are other considerations relative to violence, many times violence is
not the means intended by those calling for a specific change. They might have
been simply and peacefully on strike, or having a "sit-in" ( i.e. refusing to
budge from some area ), or gathering to hear pro-change speeches, then something
occurs causing the group to get abruptly excited and emotional, hence paving the
way for spontaneous disturbances.
Trinidadians celebrated laAt ieek I~NVET IiI ASAPHANS
the lifting of their 11-weekl curfew.

ON VIOLETGE -- AND HOPE. ( from page six. )
Often the ignition is provided by those on the other side of the fence, i.e.
the "authorities" who tend to "over-act" to protest, resulting in the protesters
not unreasonably becoming angry and reacting accordingly. ( Consider, for exam*
pie, a hypothetical D.G.S. headmaster calling in the Defence Force for some 6th
former protesting an expulsion they felt was unjustified...) There is much
evidence to suggest that this is what happened at the Sir George Williams Uni-
versity? the protesting students had been promised a hearing by the Administration
but for some unknown reason the latter changed their minds and instead ordered
riot police to clear the computer centre occupied by the students. ( Well, they
certainly did !!'! ) There are many other instances of large scale violence arising
simply because those in authority over-reacted, precipitating more violence
instead of checking it.
There is yet another defence for violence which paradoxically involves the
same reason why most oppose it- the expensive nature of violence. For instance,
when Blacks Aiot in the States destroying and rampaging property at least two
organizations feel the bite very hard: the U.S. Government and the insurance
companies. It costs both substantial amounts of money. So what do they do ?
If they have any brains, they simply forget their personal social prejudices
and make a concerted effort to elimiate the circumstances and conditions that
lead up to riots and rampage. And that is precisely what has happened in much
of the States. The U.S. Government and the insurance companies are among the
leaders in providing more and better job opportunities so long denied to Blacks;
in floating loans to help Blacks rebuild the slums, ghettoes, and eliminate
substandard living conditions that only proliferate riots. And so we see that
violence pays at least sometimes. Other examples could be given, all indicat-
Sing that for many just causes it requires the trouble and cost of violence
before the other-side will begin to listen.
However, as I have intimated earlier, violence is not inevitable. None of
us want it, and with the vast knowledge, communications and I dare say under-
standing of people and issues now available to all, there is no reason why
violence as a form of protest or a means of securing change should continue.
Surely at this 20th century level of civilisation we should be able to go
through the normal and inevitable changes of society without recourse to violence.
Such is my personal conviction and my hope.
And how do we avoid the violence ? Well, we cannot stop the change part of
it ( recall what we said earlier, that it is inevitable, indeed necessary for
survival witness nature ). What we can do is meet the change before the violent
stage is reached. It is not the protesters who can accomplish this it is the
persons or systems to whom the protest is directed.
Thus and this is the crunch the onus of responsibility for avoiding
violence lies only partially with those pressuring for change and mostly with
those who resist it It is those individuals, groups, and organizations who
are being challenged who must now talk and reason with their challengers before.
the situation becomes explosive. It is those in "authority" who must realise
that their traditional methods, policies and even attitudes are never guBCVF eed
perfect and hence subject to change if the suggested changeiis shown to be an
improvement; there must thus be a. willingness to liotan to the challengers ( and
of course, vice versa ). While we sympathise with the reluctance to change
( it is perhaps a human characteristic, a part of the emotion in man, but not
the reason in man ) we must all appreciate the logic of change and why we must
make every effort to satisfy the demands of change especially when it is
demanded along with reasons to back up the demand.
And so whcn the Black Power leaders in this and other societies make a point
of stating their reliance on violence as a last resort, they are only express-
ing their belief in a just cause and a willingness to use the effective methods
that have been employed from time immemorial ( read my opening aranr ah again ).

has -iven me belief that someone was determined to win the case so that he
could make Mr. Howell a mockery and a laughing-stock in this Island, through-
out the other West Indian Islands, and in the world.
But what a pity that the only Title Deed the Proreir found that was not a
legal one was the one 1k, Howell Shillingford had in his possession! Now, Ma-
dam Editor, It is my duty to inquire whether this sum of about $100,000 is to
be paid by every one of us in this State? I am a poor husband with a family of
five children and ny wife to support working for just over 3.00 per day shall
maho it doubtly hard for me to pay any extra cash on what'I am paying in the
shopS, and in the Stores to support my family. I regret very much that the
$100,000 cannot be paid'by the Premier and'his IMinisters only; for some of
them are drawing pension, for past services, and a regular monthly salary from
the State also high allouancos. Do they care what happens with the other peo-
ple in this Island?
IIadam, Editor, This 100,000 we all have to pay could be spent to build a
secondary school between Ilarigot and Portsmouth on one of the lovely hilltops
to cansoour expenses instead of sending out boys and girls to Roseau to the
Convent,, Wesley High School, and the Academy, they could remain and attend
this secondary school in the ITorth. The time to travel to this secondary
school might be one and a quarter of an hour to/from home every morning and-
afternoon; after other arrangements are made for the transport of these boys &
girls by Government and the truck owners -these boys and girls could sleep

EDITORIAL: "Politipgl ET erenoy" (concluded from front page)
Here is the key to Mr. Bradshaw's key-note speech: the whole exercise
(including the sharply worded cable sent to the Foreign and Cormonwealth
Secretary) was directed to save the name of "Labour" for future election
in the Associated States, to wipe out the impression "Labour Ca Lose".
Many supposed Conservative views and likely actions were suggested ftom
heated imaginations such as: "this law ... will place in the hands
of (the UK) Government a wide variety of legal tools with which advers-
ity and poverty can make life in Britain untenable for onr people to
bear'.; "that substantial numbers of our nationals may be forced to re-
turn to, us embittered, disgruntled, disillusioned, penniless and unem-
Distortions of fact in the speeches included the inference that Enoch
Powell was a power in the British Government (he is, of course, still
a back-bencher since he was dismissed from the Shadow Cabinet two years
ago after publicly airing his personal, objectionable views on immig-
rants); but it was noted that Nigel Fisher (friend of the West Indies)
was excluded from the Government; a further inference that no more
development aid or grants would be forthcoming; and many other shadowy
suppositions of Tory meanness intended to puff up the depleted name of
long-entrenched Caribbean Labour Parties.
And what solution was offered (besides veiled references to sending
UK nationals home)? The remedy was "political unity", leading to indep-
endence. Robert Bradshaw already has a committee drafting a constit-
ution and this will of course solve all their ills, including the poss-
ibility that the ruling labour parties might find themselves in oppos-
ition for a change. Curiously enough the word Federation was not raised,
Freedom of Movement between the islands was not raised. What is aimed
at is the consolidation by 'unity' of.Labour Party power in these be-
nighted islands.
Some fats for the RepoQd: The Immigration Act of 1962 set the quota
for Commonwealth immigrants at 50,000 a year. Commonwealth Immigrants
include Indians and Pakistanis whose religions and social customs differ
greatly from those of the English (West Indians generally have the same
religion and customs). The number of Indians and Pakistanis greatly
exceeds the number of West Indians (there were 1U million Commonwealth
immigrants in 1968 in UK). Since the Act, nearly 400,000 immigrants
have entered Britain. Most of these immigrants are needed by the U.K.
for semi-skilled and manual work. It is estimated that there are 45,000
West Indians from the Associated States and Montserrat now working in
Britain. They are better educated, more adapted and more skilled than
any Indian or Pakistani immigrant. They are needed by British Industry
and Services, which will find room for many more such West Indians.

It is notified for general infor-
mation that a Postal Agency to
serve the people of Tranto, Dip-
per and Mopo (villages neal Castle
Bruce) will be established at
Tranto on Wednesday, 15th July,,97Q,
Business will be conducted at the

H.E. the Governor, Mr. Stevens and
a number of distinguished visitors
joined parents and friends of the
young pupils in seeing a fine dis-
play of work on Thursday last.
Right through from Reception to
the woodwork shop of Mr Peters,
the children's shows were versatile
and imaginative, with a fine use of
colour Civics was prominently feat-
ured; Class III emphasised the im-
portance of fishing and bananas; IV
pinpointed coconuts and carnival;
and citrus had a good spread in III.
The teachers and children are much
to be praised. We especially enjoyed
the steelband made of limes and the
matchbox castle.

In Britain, a volunteer army of no-
torists was mobilisod to plant sono
12,000 young trees at selected sites
all over the country. The planters,
over 6000 of them, each contributed Z1
for local council' to buy suitable
trees to enhance'neighbourhoods and
landscapes: oatl,, chestnuts, poplars,
limes, rouans~ sycanores, beech and
elms. On a few sites the professional
aelp of forestry experts was needed,,
but in the main the contributors all
planted the trees themselves, in a
countrywide operation extending front
the north of Scotland to the Isle of
Wight off the coast of southern England.
Trees grow slowly. The men who
Laid out the parks which make such
peaceful settings for so many of
3ritain's stately hones only saw sap-
lings where later generations would
enjoy wide-branched trees. They
planted for their great-grandchildren.
And the 'Chief beneficiaries of this
tree-planting weekend will be future
generations. But already in this Con-
servation Year of 1970 the saplings
are extending roots and shoots, a posi-
tive reflection of the realisation of
beauty and 'the need to invest in it,
