after the state of emer-

'"Te people who have
been saying that instead

the people. 4
But this is where the
Dominica situation is par-
ticularly instructive. How,
indeed, was the security
of the people threatened?
And is it still so after
more than a month of
emergency law?
To quote Mr. Le Blanc
who quoted from a paper
published by the Move-
ment for a New Domi-
qica, the threat to public
aOfgTy lay in tih s'ifc
sentence "The govern-
ment and their functisn-
aries (the Police) seem to
forget or are unable to
assess the kind of revolu-
tionary violence the peo-
pie are capable ot."
There has not been,
however, any outbreak of
violence before the state
of emergency was de-
clared, or since. Domini-
cans have quietly and
conscientiously gone about

And, as it to scoff .,i
the government's haste to

in his two-hour ruling ths

'- M Y, PEAR iR]ADER" ,. T ... John Spector
On':A 4gst' 2nd,' the'. STAR published an account by me of the events
leading up to the Stat,_ of Emergency. A factual account, each fact
'checked wi'-th', parties, or (in the case of the Premier)
checked with the recorded apes of interviews and speeches. What came
South .was c0,Ar 'the. diecttive' for the transfer of Caudeiron was issued
on the direc,t instructions of the Premier, who publicly claimed res-
ponsibility.' T1e, procedure. adopted was in- no way in accordance with the
Regulations (whether those of the old General Orders or those promulgat-
ed by the Public Service Commission on January 9, 1973 which we.e, how-
ever not .gazetted until after the transfer on June 28, 1973 nearly
six months afterwards). As far as correct procedure involving a trade
uhion dispute with Civil Service management -was concerned, owing to the
initial mistaken use of authority, the chain of command was unclear and
the'Pr .nier in taped discussion promised that a proper "grievance pro-
.cedure"'vould be agreed with the unions and management (despite the fact
that politicians 'are supposed, under British Parliamentary usage, to
have no control.-over-civil servants,, our Constitution (sections 76-78)
gives "advise and consent" powers to the Premier: these make nonsense of
clause 76 .(12) which reads: 'The Public'Service Commission shall, in
the exer&.ise of its functions under this constitution, not be subject to
the direction or control of .any other person or authority').
I quote all this additional material since the ruling party's organ
has chosen to write a lot of "',-called "facts" talking about the C.S.A.
saying "rules and regulations are made to follow and -obey. Those who
violate must accept the consequencess" (sic). A hundred and fifty years
ago there were "rules and regulations" for slaves, here in Dominica -
yet Balla, Jgcko and the "rest are now heroes., A hundred years .ago wages,
working hours and conditions of work for labur 'were sub-human; now,
thanks to trade unions, who.set the pace first (at great sacrifice for
their leaders) in Europe and America, conditions of work, especially for
white collar workers, are cushy by comparison with the past. However,
the 'gains can only be maintained by eternal vigilance. An injustice has
been corrected, partially, thanks to the leaders of the C.S.A. two of
whom have lost their jobs; perhaps they may lose their pensions (which
would be small, anyhow); certainly they will be unlikely to get any con-
siderable gratuity. The original officer involved has now got a'higher
grade job and can still pursue his creative arts outside working;:hours.
Radio Dominica is a shadow of its former self. Attempts are being made
to emasculate the C.S.A. by the employers. Punitive financial measures..
against the'strikers, have been announced.
Victimization of officials (elected and unpaid) of a union and of strikers
on this ocale smacks of the 1920s, 'n .any civilized country such victimization
would be immediately take up by Government and the Homo Secretary would appoint
a Tribunal to investigate, Perhaps the Ministers of Finance and Home Affairs
.(who are. both supposed to be active trade unionists) will take up this case -
even though the employer in the case both as executor and adviser'. is their boss
--,the Premier.. '
On the question 'of pensions and other remuneratidns, they should..bear in
mind the precedent created'by thePremier in which'throoe Iinisters were dismissed
'in 1970, yet without -a; help from any trade union, they received gratuities of
a very generous natre --which probably accounts for their non-alignment to the
Civil Rights struggle of the.'Freedom Party.
Noto until poor (v'ey poor) Dominica gets a government which puts a 'moral
,basis into its politics, realisetg the vast. responsibilities of its power -A.nd
puts the wellbeing' of ALL persons in the State before its.'individual and personal
wellbeing will we, the'ordinary .people of this gentle and 15eaceful island, be

eleven years. During the last decade it
has enjoyed a significant level of indus-
In order to get a true picture of Jam-
aica, may I bringyour minds back to 1952*
Two decades ago Jamaica w as primarily an
agricultural economy and depended on the
production and export of sugar, rum, ban-
anas, cocoa and spices for the major por-
tion of her income* The amount" of indust~
was then limited and the Tourist Industry
Was just beginning to have an effect.With
little capital resources available local-
ly at that time, Jamaica's industrial ar-
chitects had to attract outside capital
from overseas industrialists to get real
industrial development under way. Like
many other developing nations'seeking
development'capital, incentive legislatiac
was enacted, and to further attract new
industries Government also set aside 300
acres of land outside Kinpgton which the
Jamaica Industrial Development Corporation
(JIDC') (a Statutory Govt. Board)developed
into an industrial estate'where such vital
utilities as power, light, water and com-
munications were provided. The efforts
of this Board were directed to the encour-
agement of labour intensive industries
which were to. supply Jamaica's basic needs
of food, clothing and shelter and above
all, jobs. Some 200 industries now op-
erate with over 1400'registered factories
and provide employment for approximately
46,000 workers. This continuing growth
of' industry has done much to build Jam-
aica's image as one of *the economically
most-progressive and fastest developing
nations (for its size in the world today),
Let us now examine this. growth vis-a-
vis the people. A tour of Jamaica enabled
us to see for'ourselv6s'the great indus-
trial boom taking place." We first visited
the Ewarton Baujite Worls, one of the
country's. major industries (Jamaica being
the world's largest producer of bauxite).
The topsoil is removed and the bauxite is
dug out until limestone is reached. The
rich alumina is then extracted from the
bauxite by a very'interesting process and
shipped to Canada, Norway, U.S.A,,Sweden
and other countries to be smelted into
aluminium,.. We were informed that one of
the most expensive imported commodities
used in extracting the alumina is caustic

Sbe 'recycled' five'times before the sup-
ply-is replieished. On querying the
possibility of smelting alumiia in Jam-
aica, we were told that it would be too
costly because of lack of low-cost elec-
tric power required to manufacture alu-
minium at economic prices. Bauxite Ind-
.ustry emploa a very large percentage
of Jamiica's population. Skills have been
improved through the Company's traininS
programmes. The Company has acqui-ed
49,000 acres for bauxite reserves,plant,
