Do not wear contact lenses if you are in a situation where you may be tear-gassed. When I went through basic training, we were warned that there was a possibility the tear gas they were using could melt contact lenses.
why is this still happening why the fuck is this still happening what the fuck is wrong with everything
Hi, my name is NAME. I live in PLACE, and I am a constituent of ELECTED OFFICIAL. I am calling because the police department of Ferguson, Missouri is using federally funded weapons against unarmed American citizens in a reckless, inappropriate, and unlawful manner. I am calling to request immediate action to protect the people of Ferguson and to fully investigate the Ferguson Police Department’s actions, including the killing of Michael Brown and the subsequent abuse of protestors and arrest of journalists and elected officials. I believe that all civil rights and civil liberties, including the right to free speech and lawful assembly, are very important, and I hope that ELECTED OFFICIAL agrees with me. Thank you for your time.
You can use this handy form (http://hq-salsa.wiredforchange.com/o/5950/getLocal.jsp) from the League of Women Voters to identify your elected officials. I am going to call my U.S. senators and congressmen and the president’s office. If you can’t call, you can e-mail, but I’ve been told phone calls count more.
Sometimes when you call they ask some questions about who you are or where you live, but it’s really painless usually. And, call even if you think your rep is an asshole — whoever answers the phone is trained to be polite. If they get enough calls, they usually wind up listening at some point.
in my experience emailing is not always so great. i’ve gotten replies that basically said “thank you for your email in SUPPORT of *thing i don’t actually support*” buy hey idk ??
This is a fund set up for the people who have been arrested while protesting in Ferguson. Please donate if you can and share widely. This is concrete action we can take to support the people of Ferguson. Also please call your local representative and let them know you do not agree with what’s happening. Here’s a script and a way to find the contact info for your local reps.
Please signal boost.
