Fly Kites - Not Drones

The Fly Kites Not Drones campaign takes place annually around the time of the Afghan New Year (Nao Roz) on 21 March, in solidarity with Afghans living under constant threat of armed drones.

The campaign was launched in the UK by Voices for Creative Nonviolence, moved by reports from Afghanistan of children frightened to play outside and fly kites under the clear blue sky, for fear of a drone strike.

For Afghans kite flying stands for freedom. It was forbidden under the Taliban.
