George Orwell

The Danish Free Press Society marks the 10 year anniversary of the publishing of the Mohammed cartoons with four international champions of freedom of expression

Trykkefrihedsselskabet markerer tiårsdagen for publiceringen af de tolv Muhammedtegninger ved at invitere fire prominente repræsentanter for ytringsfrihed.

De er blandt de mest veltalende og stålsatte forsvarere for det frie ord og kommer fra henholdsvis England, USA, Tyskland og Danmark.

Trykkefrihedsselskabet giver dig muligheden for at opleve dem på én eftermiddag:

Britiske Douglaus Murray, canadisk-amerikanske Mark Steyn, tyske Henryk Broder og endelig redaktøren bag den norske Muhammedkrise: Vebjørn Selbekk.

Konferencen arrangeres med støtte fra Kulturministeriet og Danmarksfonden.

Konferencen er udsolgt

 

NB: Flemming Rose har desværre måttet melde afbud. Det skyldes den generelle situation omkring JP/Politikens Hus i forbindelse med 10-året for offentliggørelse af Muhammed-tegningerne. Flemming Rose har sagt nej til flere ting.

Afbuddet er ikke udtryk for, at sikkerheden på Christiansborg ikke regnes for god nok, men bunder i bekymring for situationen omkring JP/Politikens hus.

 

In English:

They are among the most eloquent and staunch defenders of free speech and come from England, USA, Germany and Denmark.

The Danish Free Press Society gives you the opportunity to meet and hear them in one afternoon:

Douglas Murray: British writer, journalist and commentator and Associate Director of The Henry Jackson Society

Mark Steyn: Canadian-born American writer and commentator

Henryk Broder: German journalist, writer and commentator

Vebjørn Selbekk, Norwegian editor. In 2006 he became the symbol of the Norwegian part of the international cartoon crises when he reprinted the Jyllands-Posten cartoons.

The conference is organized with the support of The Danish Ministry of Culture and Danmarksfonden.

 

NB: Due to the general situation of the newspapers, Jyllands-Posten and Politiken on occasion of the ten year anniversary of the Muhammad cartoons Flemming Rose has had to cancel (among other events) his participation in this conference.
