War Is Over (If You Want It)

The following pictures are from John and Yoko's 1969 "War Is Over" campaign in which they put up huge billboards in eleven cities around the world, reading "WAR IS OVER! IF YOU WANT IT. Happy Christmas from John and Yoko". When John was asked how much the billboards had cost, he replied, "I don't know, but it's cheaper than somebody's life."

Hi,

I’d like to invite you to participate in my first group writing Project about the Beatles – The Beatles Top-Ten Moments. Please check the following post on my blog to understand what I’m talking about: http://www.thebeatlesworld.com/2006/08/17/33/

I’m sure this will be fun for every Beatles lover. I hope you join the project.

Thanks,

Helder Sanches
