Ten Days of Peace for John and George, a 10-day individual peace promotion opportunity, will begin at a George Harrison Public Remembrance on Thursday, November 29 starting at 6:00 PM at Harrison's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star.
Ten days later, fans of Lennon, Harrison and the Beatles will gather at a John Lennon Public Remembrance on Saturday, December 8 starting at 2:00 PM at Lennon's star at the same location.The special guest speaker at both public remembrances will be Chris Carter, radio host of Breakfast With The Beatles.
Event organizer and longtime peace activist Jerry Rubin says, "This ten day peace promotion endeavor and the two public remembrances for John Lennon and George Harrison is a real opportunity for people to do a little something extra each day to further the dream of peace that John and George fervently believed in."
Rubin points out, "People can think globally and act locally. They can think of ways to promote peace and understanding in their families, in their schools, and in their communities, even within themselves personally." Rubin reminds people that, "This peace promotion opportunity is truly a simple grassroots endeavor. It's hoped that Lennon, Harrison, and Beatles fans will take it upon themselves to help promote and publicize it in any and every creative way they can."
George and John's stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame are located in front of the Capitol Records Tower Building at 1750 N. Vine Street. For further information call Jerry Rubin at the Alliance for Survival at 310-399-1000, or e-mail JerryPeaceActivistRubin@earthlink.net.
