Today in 1969: The newly wed John Lennon and Yoko Ono-Lennon began their seven-day “bed-in for peace” against the Vietnam War in the presidential suite of the the Amsterdam Hilton in The Netherlands. Their doors were open to the media from 10am to 10pm. They invited all to think about and talk about creating peace.
Lennon said, quote “ Yoko and I are quite willing to be the world’s clowns, if by so doing it will do some good”.
