10,000 Kites ~ Talking Kites
A Middle East Peace Process First
San Francisco - Sun., May 22, 2005 - Marina Green - 1-5 pm
(see photos on the beautiful waterfront grass, between the Presidio and Fort Mason)
Join Bay Area families and thousands worldwide -- side by side, Palestinians, Jews, everyone -- in a safe, child-friendly place. We will meet in good spirit and fly kites for freedom and security for all in the Middle East. We will send a message of strong support for the 45,000 Israeli and Palestinian families who have already registered for this action to fly tens of thousands of colored kites painted with messages of peace soaring on May 20th into the Holy Land skies -- north to south, east to west. IMAGINE 10,000 kites, and add yours.
Come fly your kite to
support 10,000 Palestinians and Israelis flying their kites
across borders and barriers of all kinds
this week in the Holy Land.
Bring your kites, friends, picnic lunch, and blankets
