Goodbye Margrit Kennedy

It is with sadness and regret that Daily Pickings learned of the recent death of Margrit Kennedy. Her contribution to the debate on money, interest and sustainability is immeasurable. Her Interest and Inflation Free Money is a seminal work and she worked tirelessly to bring about fundamental change to the economic system.

A staunch supporter of Occupy and key instigator of Occupy Money, she will be missed by many. Through realising the changes she envisaged we can secure her legacy.

Goodbye Margrit Kennedy

Thank you for your kind notice about Margrit Kennedy's passing. The family is concerned that the funeral information has been made public. Here is a note from Margrit's husband:
Thanks for you kind words about my wife Margrit.
Can you please take the funeral details off your website immediately? We are having logistic problems with the amount of people who want to come and the funeral is really only meant for family and invited friends.
Thank you in advance
Declan Kennedy (her husband)

Arvind, emailed the folowing:
Very sad news and a great loss to our movement.
Her work raised my awareness about the nature of money. I learnt how "money" is being used to enslave working people (the 99%).
She leaves us a great legacy that can't be bought-up by the 1% and locked away, as they do with great work of Arts.
