The Blanket

Response to "You Were A Provo, Too"
George R Young


I`m wondering what the last five words of your letter, "until you saw the light", actually mean. Does it mean that you think Anthony (and I don`t know who Anthony actually is) has lost his commitment to an ultimate Republican victory, or that by no longer being an active PIRA member he has achieved some form of divinity, or do you REALLY mean that people who have worked and fought for a cause have no right to voice an opinion on certain unfortunate incidents which may have occurred throughout the struggle. Isn`t that what we have been criticising the BRITS for doing for the last 40 years?
