From Bangkok to Kiev

Friends have written to say that right now, protesters in Bangkok and Kiev are being met with tear gas. We stand with the people: you have the right to be heard without being exposed to CS gas or any other chemical agent.

As a reminder, if you have been exposed, rinse your eyes and skin with cold water, discard exposed clothing as soon as is practical, and seek medical attention.

If you are pregnant or have other health concerns such as asthma, ask others for help, leave the area immediately and seek medical attention.

If you are able, help others who may be more prone to the effects to safely exit the area and get medical treatment.

Stay strong, stay safe.

Update on Turkey

Tear gas is being continuously used in Instanbul, so much so that other parts of the city are being impacted.

The most telling detail of the tragedy unfolding comes from the same article: that protesters are now writing their blood type on their forearms.

There are no words. This is not right. Citizens should be allowed to speak out without harm or fear.

America: stop the sales of this dangerous weapon! US companies should not be permitted to profit from this reckless abuse of authority. More and more often, tear gas is only used to suppress democracy and protect those illegitimately in power. Stop poisoning innocent civilians!
