Anti-Koran film to be discussed
COPENHAGEN — A Danish press-freedom group has invited a Dutch lawmaker to talk about an anti-Koran film he made that sparked angry street protests in Muslim countries earlier this year.
Geert Wilders will appear in Copenhagen on June 1 to talk about the movie and share his thoughts on free speech, said the Free Press Society of 2004.
Lars Hedegaard, president of the society, said the invitation to Mr. Wilders should not be viewed as a provocation against the Muslim world, but rather as a way to address the debate on the right to speak freely.
Mr. Wilders' film “Fitna,” which appeared on the Internet on March 27, links terror attacks to texts from the Koran, Islam’s holy book.

Yesterday, residents set putrid piles of garbage ablaze, some of them blocking streets.
The trash problem — the result of Naples’ dumps being full — has been blamed on years of weak governance and organized crime.
