Folkemødet (People’s Meeting) in Bornholm

-

Once a year in June, the entire political class in Denmark together with tens of thousands of citizens gather in Allinge, Bornholm, for the festival of democracy. It’s your chance to drink a beer with a minister, have a quick chat with the prime minister, and party with your member of Parliament. I have been to this festival five times in the past decade, and I can wholeheartedly say that it’s worth the trip. 

  • Rasmus Paludan (the far-right leader known for burning public religious books) has been banned from joining the festival of democracy by the Bornholm Police.
