BEATLES RADIO - FAB4RADIO * LENNON PEACE
John Lennon Peace Wall, Prague, Czech Republic.
TheLennon Wall or John Lennon Peace Wall, is a wall in Prague, Czech Republic. Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles songs.
In 1988, the wall was a source of irritation for the communist regime of Gustáv Husak. Young Czechs
would write grievances on the wall and in a report of the time this led
to a clash between hundreds of students and security police on the
nearby Charles Bridge.
The movement these students followed was described ironically as
"Lennonism" and Czech authorities described these people variously as
alcoholics, mentally deranged, sociopathic, and agents of Western capitalism.
The wall continuously undergoes change and the original portrait of
Lennon is long lost under layers of new paint. Even when the wall was
repainted by some authorities, on the second day it was again full of
poems and flowers. Today, the wall represents a symbol of youth ideals
such as love and peace.
The wall is owned by the Knights of Malta, who allowed the graffiti to continue on the wall, and is located at Velkopřevorské náměstí (Grand Priory Square)
