Morning guys! I have something different on the blog today. On the 24th of September Manifeest will organize the biggest Bed In on the Leidseplein in Amsterdam. Remember the iconic Bed In of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1969? Well, it’s like that one (only bigger) and everyone can join! Including you.
If you are around my age (let’s say 20-ish), your mum and dad have probably told you the story about Yoko and John’s iconic ‘Bed In’ Honeymoon. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, here’s what happened:
The famous couple’s honeymoon wasn’t at all like what you would expect. They decided to use all the media attention they got from their marriage for something way more important: a week-long ‘Bed In’ for Peace. On March 25, 1969, John and Yoko took residence in the presidential suite at the Hilton hotel in Amsterdam. They then invited the global press into their room to discuss peace for 12 hours everyday.
So let’s pretend we’re all Yoko and John and join Manifeests ‘Bed In‘ on the 24th of September.
“Instead of going out and fight and make war or something like that, we should just stay in bed — everybody should just stay in bed and enjoy summer.” – Yoko Ono
