FLY KITES NOT DRONES: Protest at LA Drone Expo!

 

This SAT. December 13th, the UAVSA is holding their first "Drone Expo" in Los Angeles.

The UAVSA is the first and biggest commercial drone association in the world. The UAVSA claims to protect civilians private property, but their work serves to mainstream drones into society and mask their true identities in war and surveillance.

Drones are slowly creeping into our neighborhoods and our streets. The LAPD was recently gifted 2 surveillance drones, after they were rejected by the people of Seattle, and a drone was recently found and photographed crashed on the street during the peaceful protests in DTLA following the Darren Wilson No Indictment decision.

The drones are here, now is the time to get them out!

Send a message to the UAVSA, LAPD, and the World! All drones are a violation! No drones in L.A.!

CODEPINK will join the Drone-Free LAPD. No Drones, LA coalition in standing up against Drone lobbyists. We will fly kites in front of the LA Sports Arena to send a visual statement to L.A.: Whose streets? Our streets!

    Just to be clear, you're against loud, flying electric weed whackers covered in christmas lights with a flight time of around 10 - 15 minutes, but you're totally ok with cell phones, which have a battery life of hours upon hours, have high definition cameras with zoom capability, and direct uplink access to the internet? That seems a little backwards.

    So what is wrong with using a drone? Kites can do the same thing.

    Kites are not more moral than drones, and are often used as weapons in symbolic combat: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fighter_kite
