At the Nobel Peace Prize offered to nominate residents of six Greek islands

Residents of a number of Greek islands which assisted refugees nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize according to The Guardian. We are talking about a population of Lesvos Kos Chios Samos Rhodes and Leros.

It is noted that the residents of the above-mentioned islands have met most of the 900000 refugees who arrived by sea in Europe last year. Part of the population particularly the fishermen left his job to deal with rescue workers.

At the international online community initiatives published a petition in support of the proposal which gained more than 295 thousand signatures of the required 500 thousand.

Since then over 507000 Syrians have requested asylum in European countries. By According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) more than 800 thousand people came to the the Old World through Greece and Turkey – among them 455000 Syrians and 186000 Afghans.
