Denmark's 'People's Meeting' gets new feel
Next month's People's Meeting (Folkemødet) on Bornholm is shaping up to be a departure from the cozy and informal affair of years past thanks to an increased police presence and an appearance from Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who plans to deliver a speech critical of Islam.
For the fifth year in a row, the island of Bornholm will for four days in June be transformed into a veritable who's who of Danish politics as it plays host to The People's Meeting, or Folkemødet.
Last year, the island hosted 22,000 daily participants, 2,141 events and nearly 700 journalists for four days of speeches, debates and interaction between Danish citizens and their elected officials.
