I am happy to be in Copenhagen again.
It is always a pleasure to return to this wonderful city – the home of my good friend and fellow freedom fighter, the Danish hero Lars Hedegaard.
It is always a privilege to be in the capital of the brave Danish people.
And it is always an honor to be a guest of your great organization.
The Danish Free Press Society is a beacon of light. For Denmark, for Scandinavia, for the whole of Europe, and for the entire West. Your staunch defense of civil liberties, such as freedom of speech, serves as an inspiration for many, including myself and my party.
On a moment like this, when the free world is in mortal danger, an organization such as the Danish Free Press Society is needed more than ever.
Exactly ten years ago, today, my fellow countryman Van Gogh fell as a martyr of free speech.
I remember that morning very well. The press came to my office to ask for a reaction, but hardly anyone could believe that what had happened was really true. We all realized that the Netherlands would never be the same again. Unfortunately few lessons have been learned since that horrible day in 2004.

Wilders believes the religion of Islam is violent and dangerous, and because he has said so, publicly and persistently, he has had to forfeit a normal life. November 4 marks exactly 10 years Wilders has lived under police protection.
