Greenpeace Expedition: Activists Plant Signed Flag on North Pole

As per recent reports, it has been revealed that Greenpeace, a lobby group, has planted a flag at the North Pole in order to make Arctic as a global sanctuary, which should be protected from oil drilling.

Activists of the lobby group have planted the flag, which is having millions of signatures. While explaining the procedure by which they planted the flag, activists told that they planted a flag after making a hole in the ice and placed it on the seabed.

It has been found that the flag was containing as many as 2.7 million signatures. The signatures signify that the exploitation of the Arctic should be stopped. The flag has been planted near the place, where a Russian mini-submarine had planted a Russian flag in 2007.

"We're here to say this special area of the Arctic belongs to no person and no nation, that it is the common heritage of everyone on Earth", said Sami MP Josefina Skerk from Sweden.  The expedition has a support a number of personalities who belong to different fields.

One of the main aims of the expedition is to raise awareness about the effect that climate change, oil companies, shipping and industrial fishing is having on Arctic and it's high time to curb the same.
