Johnny Keenan, of Offaly Good Vibes (and ‘Broadsheet on the Telly‘ fame) writes:
Last month the world stood together to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of ‘the war to end all wars’. Ironically today we have more wars and more mass killing than ever before.
In 1969 when Vietnam war was at its height. John Lennon and Yoko Ono decided to publicise peace. It was an artistic humanist and active project that they would work at for 3 years.
Starting with a bed-in for peace on their honeymoon in a hotel room in Amsterdam with a simple and subtle message in a song ‘Give Peace a Chance’.
They took to the streets of cities all across America affirming ‘Power To The People’. Then hit home the message in 1972 with a massive worldwide billboard campaign ‘ War Is Over! (if you want)’ followed by arguably the ultimate Xmas song.
John & Yoko were two informed intelligent and idyllic people who saw the world for what it is. A planet run by corporate greed against human need. They gave their money and time for the greater good.
Offaly Good Vibes will be sending a message from the heart of Ireland tomorrow, Saturday, December, 8, the 38th anniversary of John Lennon’s death
This is positive vibe for all the family and is run to raise much needed funds for Midlands Simon Community.
