Tilmelding:

Søndag, d. 2. november er det præcis ti år siden det brutale mord på den hollandske provo og filmmand, Theo van Gogh fandt sted. En kriminel handling, der på sin egen ildevarslende måde markerede en ny tid for ytringsfriheden.

10 år efter gør Trykkefrihedsselskabet status med en international konference på Christiansborg.

Vi inviterer markante forfattere, journalister og politikere  - de fleste dødstruede - til at give deres bud på, hvad vej udviklingen er gået sidste mordet, og hvad vi kan gøre for at beskytte ytringsfriheden.

Hør oplæg af Daniel Pipes, Robert Redeker, Geert Wilders, Kurt Westergaard, Lars Vilks og Lars Hedegaard.

Konferencen er støttet økonomisk af Kulturministeriet og Middle East Forum og finder sted på Christiansborg.
