US nonviolent revolutionary George Lakey toured England and Scotland in the first half of October, talking about his book Viking Economics: how the Scandinavians got it right – and how we can, too (reviewed in PN 2600–2601).

George toured Quaker meeting houses in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Huddersfield, London, Norwich, Nottingham and Sheffield, as well as universities in Oxford, Leeds and London.

He also addressed the Quaker Gender and Sexual Diversity Community on 13 October and the Quaker Activist Gathering on 14 October before flying back to the US for the last leg of his 18-month book tour.
