Vietnam Protest 1973


It isn't too well known, but in June 1973, John and Yoko went to Washington D.C. and participated in a protest against the Vietnam War (which was still going on). They also watched some of the Watergate hearings while they were there. As far as I know, this was the last time John and Yoko were seen together in public before their separation. Here is a photo I recently found of John and Yoko in D.C. with a woman named Kay Camp.

  1. I found this information on a same picture that says it was from the tiger cage demonstration, Washington, D.C., Summer 1977.

  2. Sorry for got to paste the link. They might have the date wrong? Seems like Lennon was busy raising Sean at that time?

  4. Yes that link has the wrong date and event. The date I got came from a new article where John and Yoko are wearing the same hats (just without the woman, Kay) and says how they are at a protest prior to the Watergate hearings. Their clothing and hair match the Watergate photos as well.
