On May 31, 1969 John Lennon and friends recorded the song "Give Peace a Chance" in a hotel room in Montreal. 50 years later and we STILL need to give peace a chance. The chorus of John's song has been sung in countless protests and rallies around the globe over the past 50 years. As long as people are wanting peace, it will keep being played and sung everywhere -- just like John Lennon wanted.
