Dual citizenship demonstration outside Parliament on October 29

Tired of waiting? A German resident has called for a peaceful protest to speed up the process

Kirsten Kock from Germany is inviting foreigners living in Denmark, who like her wish to obtain Danish citizenship, to come to a peaceful demonstration.

The protest will take place on Thursday October 29 from 9 to 11 am in front of Christiansborg Slot, the seat of the Danish Parliament.

Kock is hoping the protest will lead to the government providing more information about the application process and the faster processing of individual cases.

The Venstre government recently passed changes to the current Danish dual citizenship law, which requires applicants to prove advanced Danish language skills and more self-sufficiency.
