Last Sunday, Nov.20, a bold step in
the realization of last August's
proposal at a seminar sponsored by
the Caribbean Council of Churches
took place: The Dominica Human RIghts
Committee was launched on S.M.AAground
A disappointingly small, though ob-
viously appreciative gathering of cai-
cerned citizens heard talks by TRon
Green (Importance of Human Rights to
Dominica), Gregory Rabess (Rights of
the Caribs) Brian Alleyne (Repressive
Legislation)and Charles Savarin on
Workers Rights.
The feature address was given by
Grenadian Barrister-Pariamentarian
Kenrick Raddix on Human violations in
the Region a vivid,blood chilling
accountt of treatment inflicted upon
himself and associates under the or-
ders of P.M.Gairy & Innocent Belmar.
He cited records from Duffus Report.

voiced fears that the root of that
connection was Fascism; he saw the
threat'as not being localized in
Grenada, but as extended to the entire

by Corporal Hansel Valerie, repres-
entative of the Royal D/ca PoliceFbrca
Chairing the'meeting was Brother
Egbobt Germain, Principal of S. M. A.
Who had his Hfmrau rights violated
when he was arrested whilst watching
as the Police "tear-gassed" a crowd
attempting to hold a meeting on the
Roseay River bed. (The case has been
postponed "tntil sometime in January
next year).

ica Human Rights Committee are:
