Financial Literacy Month (November)
We are now approaching the mid-point of Financial Literacy Month - November. Finance Minister, Jim Flaherty launched “Financial Literacy Month” at a kick-off event at the Central YMCA on downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada on October 31, 2011. At this event Minister Flaherty is quoted as saying: “The issue of financial literacy means a great deal to me, and it certainly means a great deal to our Government.”
Market Watch published a news item about “Financial Literacy Month” titled “Financial Literacy Month Takes Flight.”
Among the blitzkrieg of events organized by the conventional economists who advocate “financial literacy” within their (the bankers’) orthodox, economic system of debt money are some events organized by usuryfree creatives during UsuryFree Week.
Since 2005, usuryfree creatives have been organizing events about “usuryfree financial literacy.” These events commonly begin on UsuryFree Day (November 13th) and continue during UsuryFree Week - ending on November 19th each year.
Now in 2011, UsuryFree Week already has a history of promoting “usuryfree financial literacy.” At some point in the not-too-distant future, we can proclaim November as “UsuryFree Month” - with events scheduled all over the world.
Elanah K. Mijosa, a usuryfree creative is quoted as saying: “The issue of usuryfree, financial literacy means a great deal to any debtor, and it certainly means a great deal to usuryfree creatives who advocate “Life Without Usury” as it was experienced in previous times.”
While the conventional economists focus on tips on how debtors can survive by “living with usury,” usuryfree creatives focus on exposing the lies, deceit and decpetion foisted upon the unsuspecting debtors about modern money creation while promoting “usuryfree living” as our, last, best hope for financial freedom with peace, prosperity and abundance for all.
The Knowledge Bureau has released the results of a poll about “financial literacy.” Details are posted in an article titled: “New poll finds Canadians worried about their Children's Financial Future.”
The Seventh Annual UsuryFree Day & Week will be celebrated on November 13th (UsuryFree Day) and for (UsuryFree Week) from November 13th to 19th, 2011.
Since the early 1980’s, my personal focus has been (a) to expose the lies, deceit and deception that by design surrounds our faltering and failing economic system of usury-based, debt money and (b) as part of the solution and as an active usuryfree creative, I advocate that we-the-people learn how to create and spend our own usuryfree community currencies to be used as a complement with our diminishing amounts of federal cash when we negotiate trades and/or exchanges for products and/or services that we need for our personal, family and business needs.
Now in 2011, with the advent of the "Occupy Wall Street" movement, more and more people are coming forth to recognize that a launching a usuryfree community currency in our respective, local communities is an integral part of solution-oriented ideas that help solve the many problems associated with the design flaw of usury.
At this time we are fast approaching the dates for the Seventh Annual UsuryFree Day & Week - from November 13th to 19th, 2011. In this regard, below is the details of a few timely events scheduled for November 2011:
1) In Kitchener, Ontario, Canada on November 12th the event is titled:
Towards a Peaceful Economy: Solutions for the 99%
2) In Toronto, Ontario, Canada on November 13th, 2011, we are celebrating our Seventh Annual UsuryFree Day. Our Seventh Annual UsuryFree Week follows from November 13th to 19th, 2011.
3) In Kingston, Ontario, Canada there is a meeting hosted by the Kingston Chapter of COMER (Committee on Monetary & Economic Reform), scheduled for the afternoon of November 20th, 2011, titled, “Achieving A Just Society.” For details contact Richard Priestman: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Notice of the "Seventh Annual UsuryFree Day & Week"
Here are a couple of relevant and timely songs to spread around. "Messages with music" is a great way to re-educate those who are ready and willing to be re-educated.
We've Got Your Number World Bankers by Terry Canady way back in 1985
Q-York's new song dedicated to "99 to 1" - Listen and share - the words are on the YouTube page. - I have always said that messages can be networked widely through "music with a message." I suggest that some songs be written about not only the problems associated with "usury" BUT also about the solution as offered by the usuryfree community currency movement.?
Enjoy this day and help to spread the details of our events by forwarding this email to your friends in cyberspace.
