war is over

Over on the Imag­ine­Peace web­site, Yoko Ono invites you to down­load and share a poster declar­ing “War is Over (If You Want It)” in over 100 lan­guages — every­thing from Ara­bic and Afrikaans to Ger­manHin­diTibetan and Yid­dish. Those words were first made famous, of course, by Lennon and Ono’s 1971 Christmas/Vietnam War protest song. And though we’re not real­ly clos­er to achiev­ing world peace four decades lat­er, it’s some­thing we can cer­tain­ly aspire to.

All posters can be down­loaded in var­i­ous dif­fer­ent sizes, with the largest being 3000 x 4000. (Also find small ver­sions that can be loaded as wall­pa­per onto your smart phone.) Bet­ter yet, the posters are made avail­able under a Cre­ative Com­mons license. To get more of the back­sto­ry on John and Yoko’s peace ini­tia­tives, watch the clip below.
