The fight for free speech

Reader comment on item: Once considered anti-Islam, senior scholar says he's now in the middle

Dear Daniel,

We are facing exactly the same problem here in Denmark. Myself and many others have written an open letter to the Attorney General in Denmark protesting his case against Lars Hedegaard, Chairman of the Free Press Association and Jesper Langballe, a member of Parliament for the People's Party. They are accused under the absurd law against racisme, wich we are trying to abolish completely on the basis that if one begins to prosecute free speech, the country will turn into a dictatorship soon with laws against even thought.
