Fly Kites Not Drones INTERNATIONAL week of action – an ‘uplifting’ campaign for all ages, to raise awareness about the use of armed drones, and moreover to show solidarity with civilians (especially children) living under the threat of armed drones.

The campaign was started by young people in Afghanistan who are now too afraid to play in the open, to take part in their most loved past time of kite flying, because of the threat from armed drones.

This week of action coincides with the Persian New Year, Nao Roz, which takes place on the 21st March and is a traditional time of year for kite running.
