On Friday, The Guardian reported the deaths of at least 37 Egyptian prisoners, who were tear gassed in a police van after being locked in for several hours in sweltering heat. Please read the original article, and share widely with friends. Tear gas is deadly, and we’ve seen time and again those who claim it is safe if used properly don’t even follow their own made up safety rules: i.e., don’t use in enclosed spaces. The perpetrators deserve to be brought to justice, as do the producers of this weapon.
Ban tear gas now!
