Download the John Lennon/Yoko Ono “War is Over (If You Want It)” Poster in 100+ Languages

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.
