A peace sign with a heart of gold could break the hearts of the world if the people behind it decide to take the world on a ride, it’s claimed.
Read moreThe story has been posted to Reddit by the subreddit /r/worldnews and features a video from the 1970s that shows a sign with the words “peace” and “heart”.
The message, posted to the YouTube channel of the popular BBC news website, asks if people want to get involved in the peace movement.
“There are a number of reasons why this sign might be a problem,” one person writes.
“There are the risks of people thinking it is a peace sign.
It could be misinterpreted.
It may even break people’s hearts.”
The video goes on to explain that if people decide to sign the sign, they could also be a catalyst for violence and terrorism.
“We’ve all seen this before: the peace activist and his wife or girlfriend is killed.
It was a big mistake.
The same is true here,” it adds.
The peace sign could also put people off the peace.
“If you sign this, you’re essentially taking up arms against the peace,” one poster writes.
“Do not do this!
You will destroy the world,” another poster adds.”
You might even be responsible for someone else’s death,” one user adds.
A group called the Peace Movement says it would not support the sign.
“People should respect the sign and don’t sign it,” the group’s founder, Jonathan Fagan, told the BBC.
“It is a sign of peace and a symbol of hope.”
Fagan said the group would not take a stand on the sign if it is interpreted as a threat to people’s safety.
“No one is above the law,” he said.
“But the law applies to all of us and we have a right to act in a way that protects ourselves, our loved ones and our planet.”
“We’re all human, we’re all vulnerable, we have to take action.”
