Seattle, Protest, and Tear Gas
Seattle police are prepared to use tear gas again to disperse May Day protesters. If you believe that we the people have the right to assemble, call the Seattle Police Department and the Seattle City Council members, and tell them why tear gas is a violation of constitutional rights and a danger to innocent bystanders. If you will be protesting this year, no matter the city, please stay peaceful, and help those around you. If tear gas is deployed, seek medical attention, even if you don’t feel the effects right away. It is a chemical weapon, and there is no such thing as safe use of tear gas. Please share and translate if you are able.
