The walk is not a part of the conference, but a gathering of Haukur’s friends and family. Everyone is welcome to join us. We will walk from Hlemmur to Austurvöllur and visit some of the places related to Haukur personally and activism in Reykjavik. Our guide on the tour is Lárus Páll Birgisson, aka Lalli the Paramedic. The walk starts at the Police Station at Hlemmur at 15:45.
Lalli the Paramedic is a pacifist and one of the best known anti-war advocates in Iceland. He became acquainted with Haukur on an internet forum on religion but the first time they met in person was at Kárahnjúkar. Although they did not agree on religious matters they had a lot in common. Most significantly they detested imperialism and warmongers. They also shared a love for Icelandic nature and went hiking together.
Lalli has twice been prosecuted for peaceful demonstrations against the military policy of the USA and NATO.
