Free Software Foundation president Richard Stallman (RMS) was in Denmark in May 2019.

After a visit to the beach in nearby Slettestrand the day before, RMS went to Aalborg, where he delivered his speech “Free software and your freedom”1 at Aalborg University (AAU), on May 6th.

The next day, he went on to Odense, where he gave his speech “The danger of mass surveillance” at Syddansk Universitet (the University of Southern Denmark, or SDU). Next, he headed on to Copenhagen, where he gave the following three speeches.

On May 8th, he was at the IT-Universitetet i København (IT University of Copenhagen, or ITU) to give his speech “Free Software and your freedom in computing,” to an audience of about three hundred people.

On May 10th, he gave his speech "Should we have more surveillance than the USSR?" at Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (the Technical University of Denmark, or DTU).

On the day after that, while still in Copenhagen, he visited the Danish-French School, which is the only school in Denmark that we are aware of to use free software exclusively.
