An open letter to State Governors & Legislatures

No more tear gas

6 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Please eliminate the usage of tear gas, and decommission the supply of tear gas. The Chemical Weapons Convention and the 1925 Geneva Protocol ban the use of tear gas in warfare. How is it acceptable to continue to use tear gas on your own citizens? Our state has spent several months in PAUSE to reduce the spread of COVID-19, which attacks the human respiratory system. Tear gas also attacks human respiratory system. The hypocrisy is unreal. Did you know that there are public schools in NYC that did not even have hand soap in the bathrooms at the start of the coronavirus pandemic? Do you think it is justified to spend money on tear gas but not hand soap? Even without a global medical crisis, that is hypocritical. Stop tear gas-ing your citizens.
