Imagine Peace

This poster has appeared opposite Dalston Junction station.

If you can’t read the two small words underneath, it just says “love, yoko 2022”

  1. Indeed. Ties in with the rendition of Lennon’s ‘Give Peace a Chance’ at the Mayor’s Trafalgar Square Ukraine solidarity rally on Saturday afternoon.

    However, the rather bland sentiments of that song, famous though it is, are completely outclassed by ‘Nobody Wins a War’ by calypsonian Tobago Crusoe. That was sung at The Tabernacle arts centre the same evening and gained Crusoe prolonged applause. Although not a new song, every line of it is up-to-the-minute relevant – well worth listening to.

    And here’s a coincidence: Crusoe sang classic calypso in the two Paddington Bear films; Voldymyr Zelensky was the voice of Paddington in the Ukrainian version of those two films. Paddington was, of course, a resident of RBKC, ostensibly living a few minutes walk from the Tabernacle.
