In our preparation for a campaign against the the manufacture, sale, and shipment of US-made tear gas to anywhere in the world, including to those governments who are most violently repressing people’s movements, collecting stories of tear gas is one important step along the way!
If you’ve been tear gassed, share your story! If you’ve submitted your own writing, video, and/or image you will receive a link to your post via email once it is online.
If you haven’t yourself been tear gas but are committed to supporting democratic movements for social change and against state repression, please take a few minutes to help advance our campaign.
