This is a support site for Lars Hedegaard, who last Tuesday narrowly survived an assassination attempt at his home in Copenhagen, Denmark. Much more will be online here soon, including lates news, articles by friends and allies, a video section and (not least) a "What can I do?" to support Lars and freedom.
Lars is currently in a safe, undisclosed location protected by the Danish police. He has the following message to friends, supporters, opponents and enemies:
Thank you for the hundreds of Facebook messages and mails I have received since a lunatic tried to bump me off two days ago.
I'm in fine shape and hope to return to a semblance of normal life and work pretty soon.
Meanwhile I can only repeat what I have already said to one of the Danish dailies: I would rather die than shut up.
They may kill us but there will always be people determined to stand up for our most precious right — the right of free expression.
Thank you to the hundreds who have joined our Free Press Society or taken out subscriptions to Dispatch International over the past 48 hours.
We are all in this together and if we stay together, they can never break us.
– Lars Hedegaard
