John Lennon and Yoko Ono attended the Peace Festival in Toronto on Dec. 16, 1969. As part of their new campaign against the war in Vietnam, they place stark black-and-white billboards in eleven international cities proclaiming “WAR IS OVER!” and then, in smaller type, “If You Want It. Happy Christmas From John And Yoko.”
WE remember when they did this. It just doesn’t seem like it was 48 years ago. How many of you remember it? And for our younger friends, how many of you have heard about it?
