In December 1969, John & Yoko bought billboard space to spread the message of peace and help forward the peace movement. Above are photos of one of the billboards, this one in Times Square, New York City. taken December 15 1969 There was also a full page advertisement taken out in an edition of the New York Times December 27,1969
"We’re trying to sell peace, like a product, you know, and sell it like people sell soap or soft drinks. And it’s the only way to get people aware that peace is possible, and it isn’t just inevitable to have violence. Not just war — all forms of violence."
Is it bad that my first thought was “this would be interesting to see on Mad Men?”
