Why?? Seaman is the one who said it. I'll stick with the guy who didn't plead guilty to stealing priceless, personal items from a dead guy for personal financial gain and notoriety.<quoted text>
Forget seamen, go back and read my post where lennon was quoted.
Late that November, Lennon spoke out on behalf of striking workers in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The strike was against Japan Foods Corporation, a subsidiary of the Japanese multinational Kikkoman, best known for its soy sauce. The US workers, primarily Japanese, were members of the Teamsters. In LA and San Francisco, they went on strike for higher wages. The shop steward of the LA local, Shinya Ono, persuaded John and Yoko to make a public statement addressed to the striking workers:
“We are with you in spirit. In this beautiful country where democracy is the very foundation of its constitution, it is sad that we have to still fight for equal rights and equal pay for the citizens. Boycott it must be, if it is the only way to bring justice and restore the dignity of the constitution for the sake of all citizens of the US and their children.
“Peace and love, John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
New York City, December, 1980.”
Doesn't sound like an "about face" to me.
