Vilks’ lecture gets go-ahead

Good news from Sweden, where Lars Vilks has been invited to have another go at giving his lecture at Uppsala University.

The first time he tried to deliver his lecture on freedom of expression and art, he was rudely interrupted by a handful of Islamists baying “Allahu akbar” (he isn’t). There were three arrests.

The Department of Philosophy’s director of studies, Rysiek Sliwinski said,

Violence and intimidation will not silence people at the university or elsewhere in society.
