Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a series of leaflets criticizing the leader of North Korea being sent into the country via helium balloon!

AFP reports that over the course of the last three days a group of activists called Fighters for Free North Korea—including many people who’ve in fact defected from North Korea—have gone about sending leaflets across the border from South Korea. The leaflets, held beneath balloons, contain exclamations such as “Launch a merciless blow of fire to the nuclear maniac Kim Jong-Un!” and “We want Kim Jong-Un’s head!”


This is, though, apparently just the start. The group told AFP that it plans to launch “10 million leaflets over the next three months.” Maybe they should team up with the Google Loon guys.
