The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent
Motion passed, Fianna Éireann Ard-Fheis

June 22 2003

"That this Ard Fheis of Na Fianna Éireann deplores the recent and continuing censorship of Republican views.

We note in particular the campaign being carried out by the Andersonstown News against The Blanket website. The Andersonstown News has threatened legal action against any publication which criticises it and has intimidated a website and a newspaper which carried the views of Anthony McIntyre, a Republican ex-POW who disagrees with the Good Friday Agreement and the views of Provisional Sinn Féin.

Na Fianna Éireann wishes to make known our condemnation of this censorship, it has no place in the politics of Republicanism. We send our support to Anthony McIntyre and the Blanket Website and affirm our belief in the right to free expression among all sections of Republicanism in Ireland".

The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent



Intellectual freedom is essential to human society. Freedom of thought is the only guarantee against an infection of people by mass myths, which, in the hands of treacherous hypocrites and demagogues, can be transformed into bloody dictatorships.
- Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov
