Good morning meine damen und herren, this is the peace call.

John: what were really doing is sending out a message to the world, mainly to the

Youth, especially the youth or anybody really thats interested in protesting for

Peace, or protesting against any form of violence and we say everybodys getting a

Bit heavy or bit intellectual about it. everybodys talking about peace, but nobodys

Doing anything about it, except for a few people, and the things are, the grosvenor

Square marches in london. the end product of it was just newspaper stories about

Riots and fightings. and we did the bed event in amsterdam and the bag piece in vienna

Just to give people an idea, that theres many ways of protest and this is one of them.

And anybody could grow their hair for peace or give up a week of their holiday for

Peace or sit in a bag for peace, protest against peace anyway, but peacefully cause we

Think that peace is only got by peaceful methods and that to fight the establishment

With their own weapons is no good, because they always win and theyd been winning

For thousands of years. they know how to play the game violence and its easier for

Them when they can recognise you and shoot you. they dont know how to handle

Humour, peaceful humour and thats our message really.

Questioner: what do you think was the biggest success in history, about 300 years?

John: havent a clue.

Yoko: well, maybe its still yet to happen, you see. thats why were trying to do it. in

Other words, by very, very peaceful methods to bring peace, you know instead of

Peace through violence, thats what were trying to do and if we succeed in that,

Thats the biggest happening yet in the last 300 years, because its never been done and

Nobody has really tried it, you see. and thats what were trying to do.

Questioner: what would you do in case of a war?

John: how do you mean?

Questioner: what would you do immediately if you would wake up in the morning, read the newspapers and they would tell you england is in war with france?

John: Id die of fright.

Yoko: I dont think that should happen. you talk as if somethings going to happen

Aside of us. we are all in this you see. we are all in the same society and in the same

World and everything that happens to us is our responsibility, you know. like any

Violence going in the world is just a symbol of all the violent atmosphere that is in

The world, you see and when the nazism persecuted the jewish people that wasnt only

Hitler, who did it or germany, who did it, but just a symbol of everybody in the world

Who had the feeling for the persecution of jews, you see. so we share everything, so

Thats not gonna happen, if theres war suddenly, thats our fault, you know.

Questioner: so what do you think about the behaviour of austrian and germans during

The second world war? dont you think that theyre a little bit more responsible

Than the others?

John: no, not particularly.

Yoko: no, not particularly. no. the whole world, if the whole world was really

Aware of it and if the journalists and the communication media of those days were

Really aware of their responsibility as well and reported everything correct, you

Know, well, which is almost impossible, Im sure, but as much as possible and if the

Whole world was aware of their responsibility, it could have been stopped, Im sure.

John: well, we know that britain and a few other counties waited quite a long time

Before they made any decision about what to do. Im not quite sure of the facts, you

Know, but after czechoslovakia and things like that, they couldve stopped it earlier,

But they waited until its on the doorstep, you know, until it involves their money,

Their territory.

Questioner: theres a special type of petition that is vetoed by special contents ..

John: no. I dont think so because...

Questioner: hitler could have been voted by the french, for instance.

John: every nation will have a prototype. I think I was out talking to one of the

Austrian tv guys. I said can you name me one european country which hasnt sort of

Raped the world and he said austria actually was the only one that didnt attack

Anybody else. they were always on the defensive side, I dont know whether thats


Qustioner: but they were silent at the wrong moment...

John: okay, thats bad, I agree that silence is bad. but I mean there isnt one european

Country that hasnt had its hitler in one way or the other, including britain, in what

They did to india and south africa, you know.

Yoko: so lets so back to the future, you know. so thats why were here. we want to

Talk mainly to the young people all over the world, because those are the people

Who are going to be the next generation. theyre going to be the next world, you

Know, and we just want to say we are with them. were not preaching or anything like

That. we want to be with them and were with them and in our way, were just

Announcing that were open to all invitations or suggestions or anything to work

For the world peace, you see, and were doing it now, in our own way, which we think is

The best for us and also the young people have to realise that this is just as bad as

Before the second world war or right in the middle of it, you know, that everything,

All the violence that is happening in the world now are our responsibility and if we

Dont really realise it and immediately start something, action, you know, its going

To be bad, you know. and it will be exactly like you said. one morning, we find in the

Newspaper, find that the whole world is going to disappear, you know.

Questioner: I agree with you, but dont you see, I mean, its a fact that by through your

Behaviour, I think its okay, but for a lot of people, through your behaviour, to get

Suspicious. they dont think that this can be correct, people sitting under a

Tablecloth protesting against wars. they dont think...

Yoko: okay, before they criticise us, you know, and if they want to criticise us, okay,

Go ahead, and they should do it in their own way, but do something, you know.

Questioner: so everybody should throw out his part of hitler out of his soul, then?

John: yes, yes, we all have it in us. in a way, were saying we want peace and were

Staying in bed for peace, but Im as violent as the next man, and Im sure yoko is just as

Violent just as well. were violent people, you know. I prefer myself when Im non-

Violent. I prefer me friends when theyre non-violent. it just makes for easier living

And if we have to have violence, lets channel it, you know.

I dont know how, you know, theres other people can work out how to channel it, or

Give them somewhere to play and kill each other or something. but I dont want to be

Involved in their violence. I prefer to live in peace, you know.

Yoko: all you need is courage, you know. you can just go out in the street now and

Take off all your clothes and just say peace you know and youll be in the news you

See. just courage and if everybody gets courage and of course they would,

Because they would think all right maybe this is a little bit embarrassing thing to do,

But look at john and yoko theyre doing worse, so I can do it, you know.

Thats all were trying to do, you see.

Questioner: so youre putting courage, also, into the world?

John: we hope so.

Yoko: I hope so.

John: okay.

Stay in bed!

John: look theres a fly flitting around. just makes you laugh.

Yoko: what time is it?

John: whats the time?

Yoko: what?

John: 9:30.good morning. I was saying about bagism,you see, you get in this bag and you

Jump out the window. next thing you know, you got a policeman on your head. you want tea?

Yoko: you know what I want, john?

John: what; what, what, what. oh, give us a chance! you want one before I do. yes, our

Name got round a lot. could I have room service, please. do you want toast?

Yoko: just tea. which do you want, coffee or tea?

Visitor: yeah, if you dont mind. thank you very much.

John: I thought you were giving

Visitor: bye, bye. bye, bye. no, no.

John: I sort of was under that impression. she gave us the dog and then went away. very nice.

Yoko: its rather sort of really swinging though. dont you think so?

John: the thought of the long haired beatle in the 19th century sanctuary. please

Stop this nonsense. go home. we dont like people like you. go to a doctor to be

Normal, you get this? go to a doctor to be normal. were seeing a psychiatrist today,

So maybe hell fix us up then. bloody marvellous. we dont get through on some level,

As you notice. was under marijuana. beautiful, beautiful. keep smoking. nothing illegal

Beautiful, beautiful. hey, those kids are as hard as the real press.

Yoko: yes, amazing.

John: amazing. theyre just as tough as the real press. very sexy. its a boy, its a boy.

Questioner: why are you staying in bed for 7 days?

John: ah, because...

Questioner: well, first of all, let me say congratulations on your marriage and that

In dutch is gefiliciteerd met je getrouw.

John: oh, dank u wel, oh, chocolat!

Questioner: how about explaining this mission you are on at this moment!

John: well, you start...

Yoko: well, because we thought of this idea about staying in bed for 7 days for

Protest against violence in the world.

Questioner: did you think of its geographical situation as being the centre of europe?

John: no, I didnt realise, is it? oh, fantastic! it was magic then, you see, cause the way...

Questioner: well, they call it the centre of europe. its an advertising campaign for an


John: okay, well give us a free ticket and well be all right.

Various people: stand up! bend over towards us.

Stand up on your knees, maybe. turn up, turn up on your knees.

As soon as we can ......(unhearable) ....but we need you here

John: so, anyway a policeman came in and an elephant jumped on me head, so I said
