Truth the mainstream media doesn't tell you about
John Lennon could have celebrated his 73rd birthday this October 9th.
On 18 September 2004, in London, Yoko Ono awarded Vanunu a peace prize founded in memory of and in the spirit of John Lennon's "Give Me Some Truth" released in 1971:
"I'm sick and tired of hearing things from uptight short sided narrow minded hypocrites all I want is the truth, just give me some truth. I’ve had enough of reading things by neurotic psychotic pigheaded politicians all I want is the truth, just give me some truth."-John Lennon
Every year since I first met Vanunu, in 2005, I have never wished him a "happy birthday" but his FINAL birthday [Oct. 13] denied the RIGHT to leave the "only democracy in the Middle East" with decades more in full freedom and good health.
I asked Vanunu, "Did you know the Beatles and Bob Dylan" because I am nine months older than he and both had been major influences on our generation.
