Aid groups create huge peace sign of life jackets on Greek isle

A photo released by Greenpeace and taken on January 1, 2016 on the Greek island of Lesbos shows a peace sign created from over 3,000 discarded refugee life jackets, calling for safe passage to those fleeing war, poverty and oppressionRights groups briefly transformed a mountain of discarded life jackets used by refugees who crossed the Aegean Sea into a huge peace sign on the hills of the Greek island of Lesbos. The giant symbol, which was made out of around 3,000 flourescent orange life jackets, was created on a hillside overlooking the 10-kilometre (six mile) stretch of water between the island’s northern shores and the Turkish coastline, the Greenpeace website said. It was formed on New Year’s Day by around 100 volunteers from Greenpeace, Doctors Without Borders, Sea-Watch and the Dutch Refugee Boat Foundation as well as the local community group, Starfish.
