The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent

Threat to Dissident...?

J.Doherty, Derry Branch Republican Forum • 13 April 2004

The advice given over the Easter weekend by a leading member of the Provisionals based upon the so called sightings of a leading loyalist on the West Bank of Derry is one that should not be rejected out of hand by the general nationalist community. The reason being that there have been other sightings on the City side of loyalists and strange car sightings in the Creggan, Ballymagroarty, and Rosemount.

These facts cannot be denied and support Mitchell McLaughlin's statement. Therefore the nationalist and republican community should be on their guard and make every precaution possible.

Against this background however there are underground rumours that a paramilitary grouping in Derry may carry out an attack against a leading 'dissident republican'and in the aftermath lay the blame at the door of Loyalist paramilitaries.

The Republican Forum in Derry requests someone from the Provisionals to make reference to this rumour and clarify the situation for the sake of all concerned.

The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent



All censorships exist to prevent any one from challenging current conceptions and existing institutions. All progress is initiated by challenging current conceptions, and executed by supplanting existing institutions. Consequently the first condition of progress is the removal of censorships.
