Lars Hedegaard Head of Free Press Society steps down

Author and debater Lars Hedegaard announced today that he is stepping down after nine years as the head of Trykkefrihedsselskabet, the Free Press Society.

“A captain shouldn’t abandon a sinking ship,” Hedegaard told Jyllands-Posten newspaper. “But Trykkefrihedsselskabet is not taking on water. On the contrary, it is sailing strong, leaving many accomplishments in its wake while many more wait on the horizon.”
