Fly Kites Not Drones

17 March, 2014
Saturday 22nd March,
Castle Park, 12-2pm
Kite flying, children’s area, info on drones and entertainment.
Join us in a weekend of solidarity happening across the UK with Afghans who celebrate New Year on the 21st March, and who face uncertainty and the probable escalation in conflict during the renegotiation of the international presence within Afghanistan.
Kite flying has become synonymous with Afghanistan as a well loved pursuit which was banned under the Taliban, now Afghans are more used to the presence of UK and US armed and surveillance drones flying overhead. In the last 5 years there have been 547 UK drone strikes on Afghanistan, which is now the “drone capital” of the world.
We are encouraging concerned citizens, peace groups and those from the Muslim and Afghan community to fly kites in solidarity with Afghans who now have to live under the mental pressure and physical destruction which British and American drones now inflict upon Afghanistan…
‘Fly Kites Not Drones’ Action Saturday 22nd March | 12-2pm | Castle Park
Join us for this creative mass kite flying action in solidarity with Afghans during their New Year and to demonstrate our opposition to drone warfare. Learn about Britain’s armed drones being used in Afghanistan and the effects on children.
There’ll be kites to fly, a children’s area to make kites and messages for children in Afghanistan, plus music and fire eating entertainment!
