The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent
Gareth O Connor

Joe Dillon, 32 County Sovereignty Movement • 13 May 2003

We are extremely concerned for the safety of Mr. Gareth O'Connor given the time lapse since his disappearance on Sunday [11 May]. Following extensive inquiries in the Armagh/Louth area we treat with suspicion the sinister involvement of the RUC/PSNI in delivering a message to Mr. O'Connor of a death threat by the Provisional IRA given that a similar threat was issued to a Belfast man a few days earlier from the same source.

We call on the RUC/PSNI to publicly clarify their position in relation to the substance behind such messages.

We again reiterate the call for anyone with information relating to Mr. O'Connor's whereabouts to come forward immediately either through a priest or solicitor to ensure his safe return to his family.

[Editor's Note: Gareth O Connor has been missing for 12 days, since May 11th.]

I have spent
many years of my life
in opposition, and
I rather like the role.
