#OpFergusonDefending Yourself Against Tear Gas
The following tips are to be exercised only for defense purposes and in the event of police/government officials using tear gas in peaceful protests. Never incite violence.
Items You Will Need
Painter’s/Dust Mask found in hardware stores
Eye Protection found in hardware stores
Water Spray Bottle make sure washed of any cleaning solution [transcriber’s note: see comment below suggesting only a new bottle]
Liquid Antacid any in liquid form such as Maalox or Mylanta
Helping Yourself And Others
After using the liquid antacid and water method on yourself, hold up your spray bottle and start shouting for people to come towards your voice for help. Spray their face and mouth.
If you are wearing eye protection or a mask, be proactive and kick the canister away from the crowd. If you can kick it down a gutter, or douse it with water, you can minimize its impact.
Stay peaceful. Peaceful protest is the only way to be take seriously and to be truly heard.
Know Your Enemy
Tear gas is a non-lethal chemical weapon that stimulates the corneal nerves in the eyes to cause tearing, pain, and even blindness. Tear gas works by irritationg mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, mouth, and lungs, and causes crying sneezing, coughing, difficulty breathing, pain in the eyes, temporary blindness, etc.
Tear Gas Relief (Liquid Antacid and Water — LAW)
Be prepared for exposure. Tear gas is a particulate, not a real gas, so painter’s/dust masks help.
"Greeks have become skilled at choosing the right protective gear. Maalox is a must."— Aris Messinis/AFP
Find a good size spray bottle and wash well. [transcriber’s note: see comment below suggesting only a new bottle]
Fill half of the spray bottle with liquid antacid (Maalox).
Fill the remaining half of bottle with water.
When exposed spray your eyes and mouth, then swallow.
Also effective as a pepper spray remedyA University of California San Fansisco-based study has found that topical application of antacids “for capsasin-induced pain is effective.Particularely in early treatment or exposure to refined capsasin.”
