ENGLAND: London:
INT
Mr J. Howgrove Ferguson (Observer newspaper) interview SOT
- Castro supporters in Haiti probably cannot read and write / people who can read and write probably would not like the Fidel Castro system / most communist-supporters in Haiti are poor and live in the countryside in great poverty and only know Castro as a kind of vague myth
- Castro more recently has said he has quite enough to do in Cuba without organising revolutions abroad / Haiti shares island of Hispaniola with Dominican Republic where left-wing democratic revolution has taken place, a more powerful country far more of interest to Castro
- A 'Castro'-style leader would need to come from Haiti's peasant majority but currently nobody who is strong enough to take over in Haiti / Duvalier is afraid of a coup d'etat from the elite in Haiti and has too much contempt for the poor people to worry about ordinary peasants
