George Lakey speaking Monday, January 16, on Organizing for Equality–New Light from Scandinavia

Community organizer and nonviolent action trainer George Lakey will discuss his new book on how Scandinavians moved from a huge wealth gap to economic equality. The book, “Viking Economics,” was called “completely fascinating” by Bill McKibben for its desription of Scandinavian achievements in meeting the climate crisis. George Lakey is a nonviolent action trainer who cofounded the Movement for a New Society and Training for Change. His first arrest was for a civil rights sit-in and most recent was with Earth Quaker Action Team while protesting mountain top removal coal mining, in a nonviolent campaign that won. Lakey’s talk will be at the Resource Center for Nonviolence, 612 Ocean Street, Santa Cruz., at 7 pm. Donations $5-$15, all welcome.
