Happy Birthday John

    A Special News Feature from Beatles News  Thursday, March 30, 2017 

























There's no finer way to celebrate John Lennon's birthday than to support some of the good causes that he and Yoko Ono dedicated themselves to when John was with us, and that Yoko continues to support.


Amnesty International

The Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights organization started in 1961, the same year that John and the Beatles started to make an impact in Hamburg and Liverpool. Human rights were at the heart of many of the campaigns led by John and Yoko in the late 1960s and 1970s.


Amnesty International helping in Kyrgyzstan

Yoko continues to be an ardent supporter of Amnesty International. In 2007, Amnesty and Yoko collaborated on the album "Instant Karma" that featured multiple musicians performing John Lennon songs to raise money for Amnesty's "Save Darfur" campaign. The album is being reissued in celebration of John Lennon's birthday.


Imagine Peace

Yoko Ono runs a very interesting website called "Imagine Peace" that presents news about many different good causes that Yoko supports. It is updated very regularly and features links to projects and charities dear to Yoko's heart that honor the spirit of John Lennon.

On the Imagine Peace web site, Yoko says, "let's work together to save this planet. Since destiny is created by first imaging what destiny we want for ourselves, we should Imagine Peace in a big way with total conviction."
