WAR IS OVER! Multilingual posters / postcards
Print & display in your window, school, workplace, car & elsewhere over the holiday season, and send as postcards to your friends.

We say it in so many ways, but we are one.
I love you!

If you don’t see your language here, then send us your translation of...

Happy Christmas from John & Yoko

...so we can make a poster for your language.


Dear Friends,

The WAR IS OVER! campaign was once a tiny seed, which spread and covered the Earth. John and I believed it helped many people to stop their wars.

Since then, every WAR IS OVER! campaign has impacted the world as powerfully as the first one.

Start yours tomorrow, and you will see that it spreads and covers the world very fast and, meanwhile, makes you a Small Pebble Person.

Small Pebble People are people who know that small pebbles, when they're dropped in the ocean, will immediately affect the ocean of the whole wide world.

Don't throw a big stone. It scares people and creates repercussions.

Just drop a small pebble.
We'll keep doing it. Together.
That's how the world gets changed...by Small Pebble People.
We change, and the world changes.

Happy Holidays.

I love you!

Yoko Ono Lennon


Thanks for all your comments and suggestions.
The response has been amazing.

We have been working round the clock, conversing on email with hundreds of kind and helpful contributors who have been helping us to continually refine each translation to closer define John & Yoko's original intention. Special thanks go to those from Oxford University, UK & the European Parliament in Brussels who have helped out enormously.

We now have translations in Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Belarus, Brazilian Portugese, Bulgarian, Burmese, Catalan, Cebuano-Bisaya, Chethlonian, Chinese-Simplified, Chinese-Traditional, Croatian, Cyrillic, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, Estonian, Farsi, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greek, Hawaiian, Hebrew, Hindi, Hiligaynon-Ilonggo, Hungarian, Icelandic, Ilokano, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Kamakawi, Khmer, Klingon, Korean, Latin, Latvian, Lithuanian, Lojban, Luxembourgish, Maltese, Marathi, Norwegian, Pangasinense, Polish, Portugese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovakian, Slovenian, South Sotho (South Africa), Spanish, Swedish, Swiss German (Rheintaler), Tagalog, Thai, Tok Pisin, Turkish, Ukranian, Urdu, Vasc, Waray-Waray & Welsh.

We still need some help with some of the non-Latin scripted languages, as they often don't copy and paste well, and the correct formatting & layout of these scripts can be very tricky to the uninitiated eye.

If there's any designers that have script fonts that look closer to the original (Franklin Gothic) and can email us a similarly laid-out 3000x4000 pixel pdf, that would be fantastic!

We received the Burmese translation this way - as a preformatted pdf file - so thrilling as we are especially concerned about the plight of Aung San Suu Kyi and the struggle in Burma, and have been campaigning for her release here.

We would particularly like to find Dari (persian), Pashto, Kurdish, Aramaic & Turkmen.

We're also looking out for Amharic, Assamese, Azerbaijani, Bengali, Bhojpuri, Cantonese/Yue, Fula/Fulfulde, Gan, Georgian, Gujarati, Hakka, Hausa, Igbo, Inuktitut, Javanese, Kannada, Madurese, Maithili, Malagasy, Malay, Malayalam, Marathi, Min, Nepali, Oriya, Oromo, Punjabi, Shona, Sindhi, Sinhalese, Sunda, Swahili, Tamil, Telugu, Tibetan, Uzbek, Wu, Xiang, Yoruba & Zhuang and many others.

We were very happy to receive Klingon, Chethlonian, Kamakawi and Lojban and welcome more esoteric submissions.

Also great to have Handsigns & Braille, Morse, Semaphore & Flags.

We hope this project will continue to evolve and grow worldwide in the spirit in which it was first intended by John & Yoko in 1968.

Yoko said:
"This is what we wanted to do, and did, in a way at the time.
John would have been delighted."
