“We need a real press!”
Felix Strüning – 3. April 2012
CT-Interview with Lars Hedegaard on Mohammed cartoons, Denmark as a role model and one Million Euros
As a small country, Denmark is not very influential within the European Union. But ever since then there appeared the Mohammed cartoons, the country became the focus of international attention. Citizen Times Editor in Chief Felix Strüning spoke with the Dane Lars Hedegaard, president of the International Free Press Society, on developments in his country, the chances of a peaceful solution to the problem of Islam and what he would do with one million Euros.
Citizen Times: Mr. Hedegaard, six years ago, the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published the famous twelve Mohammed cartoons. Kurt Westergaard, one of the artists, still needs police protection. So, how is the mood in the Danish population right now?
Lars Hedegaard: There are some indications that parts of the public are getting tired and would dearly like to return to a state of “normality”. In early March the leading PC-paper Politiken even claimed that the debate over Islam and immigration is over – which is exactly what the paper would like to happen.

Round Three in the Trial of Lars Hedegaard
An interview with the Danish free speech advocate, who again goes on trial for insulting Islam.
by Ann Snyder – April 8, 2012
In Denmark, sticks and stones may break your bones, but insulting words will get you fined — to the tune of 5,000 kroner (or about $1,000). Article 266(b) of the Danish penal code, one of the more sweeping of the “hate speech” provisions, criminalizes, among other things, merely insulting groups of people due to their membership in enumerated protected classes.
On April 13, 2012, Lars Hedegaard — a journalist, historian, and president of the Danish Free Press Society – takes the appeal of his conviction under Article 266(b) to the Danish Supreme Court. Readers may recall that back in January of 2011, Hedegaard was tried and acquitted for remarks he made during a 2009 interview concerning sexual abuse within Muslim communities. (In a related story, Danish MP Jesper Langballe “confessed,” pleading guilty to violating Article 266(b) for remarks he made in support of Hedegaard.) But, in a strange twist, Hedegaard’s acquittal was appealed. He was retried on April 26, 2011, and convicted on May 3.
The Free Press Societies: Interview with Swedish Chairman Ingrid Carlqvist and International Chairman Lars Hedegaard
by Nicolai Sennels on February 6, 2012
The Swedish Free Press Society, Tryckfrihetssällskapet, was launched on January 31, 2012. The Swedish press is known for notoriously hiding facts and consequences concerning Islam, immigration and Muslim criminals (example: Swedish specialty: Pink pixellation of dark-skinned criminals and pixellated anonymization of wanted criminals).
People who want to meet to talk about such topics need severe police protection (Sweden: Launching the Swedish Free Press Society under police protection).
I have interviewed Lars Hedegaard, initiator and chairman of both the Free Press Society in Denmark and the International Free Press Society, and Ingrid Carlqvist, initiator of the new Swedish branch.

Hedegaard: Islamdebat lever i bedste velgående
Lars Hedegaard | 22. marts 2012
Det er altså svært at finde nogen fornuftig begrundelse for, at den tidligere så livlige debat nu skulle være forbi, siger Lars Hedegaard
En velsignet glæde har sænket sig over dagbladet Politiken. Søndag den 3. marts kunne organet triumferende meddele, at den vådeste drøm, der nogen sinde er blevet drømt i chefredaktørens hjørnekontor, er gået i opfyldelse: Debatten om islam, shariaen og den muslimske indvandring er død.
