Yoko Ono asks fans to recreate iconic ‘bed-in for peace’

It's exactly 40 years since Ono and John Lennon's peaceful demonstrations

Yoko Ono has sent a message to fans asking them to recreate her and John Lennon‘s ‘bed-in for peace’.

The original bed-in took place at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel from March 25-31, 1969, and saw Lennon and Ono demonstrate against the Vietnam War by inviting journalists into their hotel room to talk about peace.

Another weeklong protest took place at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal from May 26 – June 2.

Posting on Imaginepeace.com, Ono asked fans to recreate the famous demonstrations and send in their pictures or stories to the website for publication.
