Fly Kites Not Drones Event On Hastings Seafront
Photographs from a fun event with a serious message
This event was on Hastings Seafront on the 17th of March 2019, hosted by Hastings Against War and Fly Kites Not Drones. It was great weather for it. Not lots of kites while I was there, but I couldn't stay for it all, plus it was a cold March Sunday!!! It was a great chance to be on the seafront on a windy day playing with kites, but it also had a serious side. These days when a lot of people in this country think of drones they think of toys with cameras on and stuff like that, but in many other countries the sort of drones they see the most are the military drones that kill people. Yes they have "approved" kill lists, but these machines will kill without warning. Controlled by people often on the other side of world sitting in nice warm offices, killing people as if they were playing a computer game. People deserve the right to a fair trial, no matter who they are!!!
