6th May, 197E6

My name is Cyril Valentine John,
brother to the Premier of Dominica,
Patrick John. I wish to make it
clear to the public that I am not
at all affiliated to Patrick neither
am I in his political activities; as
a matter of fact the Premier and I
are not on speaking terms; and that
I have no profit at all in his Prem-
I have emigrated to the United King.
dom a few years ago and constantly
continue to visit my home land as
often as I can.
I wish to make it. the public
that I want to be looked upon as an
ordinary citizen, a member of the
working class who invests in his
country. I would not like to be held
as a victim for Patrick's political
activities, please exclude me from
such matters. I am the Premierts
-brother of course but it is only by
name and no action.
In such circumstances I will subse-
quently support the Freedom Party
whenever I am in Dominica, and in
the United Kingdom,
I wish to assure Patrick John that
there is one thing he cannot do and
will never succeed in doing .is to
deport me from Dominica. I am a true
born Dominican and son of the soil,
the land of beauty which I so thor-
oughly enjoy.

Note: the above statement was handed
in to me just before the writer left
this country.- Editor.

In addition to the revolting pol-
lution that Roseau suffers from such
as rubbish and defecation on the
foreshore by the Post Office, resi-
dents, tourists land conservationists
were horrified to observe on Thursday
'hat resembled a white toil spill:
stretching from the Fort Young Hotel
to past the jetty.
Closer examination revealed that
it was caused by several cartons of

Freedom Party realists.see the cam-
ing of independence to most lands -
as a fact of life, but- (as chairman
Lennox pointed out in reference to
the Dominica constitution)it must
not be foisted on an unaware, un-
prepared or unwilling people:there
is provision for a referendum with
a two-thirds majority for or against,
The Freedom Party speakers insisted
on this referendum. Moreover they
want to know with. whoim they itigt as-
sociate afterwards and want no part
of the present local rulers in the
running of an independent Dominica.
Star Lestrade spoke third,pro-
claiming 1) A.G. Leo Austin must go
2) Radio Dominica must be revamped o
become part of a national reconstrue-
tion process to build citizenship,
rather than for "brain-bleaching" our
tomorrow's citizens; and 3) a full-
fledged inquiry into the affidavit
of Camella Francis. These,he said,are
prerequisites to Independence.
Alvin'Armantrading spoke with his
usual suave, civilised persuasiveness
Ard of course that old stalwart
Loblack had to have his say,however
brief. The meeting was then'opened
to the floorn the streets of Lagon,
and a young unat.1i speaker came for-
ward to deliver a stin~fppeech, aco-
.using Dominica's youth of irrespons-
ibility and indifference,especially
during the last election. He used
his vote, he said, and although he
lost out, at least he cast it in the
right direction., ,' An Inspiring sietin
