i’ve seen a lot of people reblogging news from ferguson, wondering if the situation has changed at all. the answer is YES—massively! so i thought i would compile some updates, courtesy of alderman antonio french (who, less than 24 hours ago, was being [wrongfully] held in jail for alleged unlawful assembly). the time right now is 4:20AM CST, august 15th.

yesterday afternoon—thursday, august 14th—ferguson & stl police were taken out of control of ferguson and replaced with MO highway patrol, led by captain ron johnson, who grew up in the area. his first order of business was to order police to remove their masks and cease violent tactics.

orange cones replaced tanks, the police line vanished, not a drop of tear gas was in sight and families felt safe enough to have their young people out protesting with them. without the fear tactics and police intimidation, people came out in droves to support ferguson.

the discussion of mike brown cannot end here. the relief is palpable and the decrease of tension under johnson’s excellent leadership is a huge mercy, but justice has not been served yet. now, hopefully, citizens will get to work together with the legal system for swift and transparent justice for mike brown & the countless other black men & women across the nation who have been unlawfully treated, and in many cases died, at the hands of police. let all of us use the alleviated atmosphere to focus the conversation, focus the nation. #mikebrown

About the teargas, I don’t know if anyone already said it, but in Brazil we were putting vinegar on tissues and breathing on it (ppl started getting stopped/arrested for carrying vinegar), it kinda cuts the effect of the teargas, how it burns the throat and doesn’t allow you to breath. ive seen ppl saying about the don’t rub your eyes part, that’s really important too.

i used to put it in a tissue on my wrist so they wouldn’t stop me for being with my face covered, cause they do it here, i don’t know if they’re doing in ferguson

This helps a lot. Also, when the teargas would hit us in Pakistan, we’d avoid vaseline, mineral oil, oil-based sunscreen or moisturizers on our skin because it only worsened the burning/irritation. Don’t use those. Do not swallow the phlegm/mucus, if you feel any. Blow it out/cough it out. Don’t let it stay in. Do not rub your skin.

I’m also seeing people out in beaters/less-covering and I completely understand that August is not a month where we’d like to cover ourselves with clothes but in this situation under armed warfare, please wear jackets when you’re out. The chemical doesn’t cling on your skin then and will stick to the fabric. Focus on breathing, like everyone says, stay calm. Inhale, exhale.

Smear lime juice on the scarf covering your nose and mouth. You’ll breathe better when hit. Or smash charcoal and dip your bandana/scarf in water and rub the charcoal over it. Cover your mouth/nose with this. Do not wash your face with water. It increases the effect of the tear gas.

First the cops said Mike Brown stole candy from a store. Then the store denied any such thing happened. Then the cops claimed Brown was trying to wrestle the gun from the cop in the car…despite the fact all the witnesses claim he was several feet away from the car and never near it.

IMO, by the time the Ferguson cops are done, they’ll have claimed Brown also shot Lincoln, JFK, Biggie and Tupac.

This is a collection of Tweets from military veterans reacting to the police response in Ferguson. 

And if this shit doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will.
