@ats_eoph @SOToxicology The 25th Conference of State Parties #CSP25 of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons @OPCW started today in The Hague. Will #CSP25 address the escalation of #teargas use world-wide ?
Under the Chemical Weapons Convention, riot control agents, including tear gas and pepper weapons, are categorized as chemical weapons. The CWC bans the use of riot control agents in warfare, but allows their use by member states for domestic law enforcement.
While member states are required to declare which types of riot control agents they use, the CWC does not list any rules or limitations on their domestic use, leaving this to member states.

Dear @realDonaldTrump @DHSgov @VP @attorneygeneral & @PortlandPolice:

GREAT NEWS! PORTLAND - US GRAFFITI PROBLEM SOLVED!
Legal Scholars confirm #1stAmendment right to the commons grants citizens UNLIMITED USE of public areas for #freespeech using REMOVABLE SIGNS! (thread!) Image
Apparently, since 1789 #USCitizens have had the constitutional right to use public property nationwide to post REMOVABLE political (non-commercial) speech!
And thanks to the precedent set by flags on overpasses after 9/11 & #BrownvCalTrans, this extends to freeways! (cont.) Image
The ramifications of this are HUGE! For Portland & Federal Govt. No messy, time-consuming clean-up! Say Goodbye! to strenuous clubbing, stinky #teargas, crowd-control & endless litigation! Say #Hello! to #Art, more interesting commutes & good old Civic Participation! (cont.) Image

🔵 EXPERT WAY TO RESPOND TO TEAR GAS

Former Nuclear, Biological, Chemical Defense Specialist in the US Marine Corps shows step by step, how to protect yourself from #TearGas. (A very fine powder.) #PortlandProtest #BlackLivesMatter #1A #WallAgainstTrump

1. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE. You're grinding the powder particles into your tear ducts, mucous membranes and micro abrasions.
#PortlandProtest #BlackLivesMatter #1A #WallAgainstTrump
2. GET TO A WELL VENTILATED AREA. You need fresh air to make the powder get off of you. Flap your arms. Keep trying to open your eyes to reduce the amount of sufferings. Move away from the wind. Move to the least contaminated area. #PortlandProtest #BlackLivesMatter #1A

Some of the riot control muntions that were used on protestors tonight, including some type of chemical smoke and CS gas (tear gas). #portland #PortlandProtest #portlandprotests #PortlandOregon #PortlandOR #oregon #BLMprotest #PDXprotests #PDX #munitions #Teargas #clypiancoverage Image
Here’s another canister of CS gas from tonight. Protestors were unsure as to what caused the canister to split as it did. Image
This canister was also used today in #portland. It is a Multi-Port Distraction Device which reads BORTAC on the side. BORTAC is the U.S. Border Patrol Tactical Unit—essentially CBP’s SWAT team. BORTAC is usually deployed for missions like apprehending int’l drug traffickers.

I am a 49 year old mother with a Masters in Education and I just got gassed by my own government. We were peaceful. I think I stood in the middle of the gas for longer than i should have... #wallofmoms #PortlandMoms #PortlandProtest #Teargas #BLM
because I just couldn’t comprehend that the smoke in the air and those canisters rolling on the ground toward my feet were tear gas. My government wouldn’t take away my right to protest. My government would not attack a group of loud chanting moms with tear gas...I was wrong.
It was painful. My eyes burned, my skin burned, it was hard to breathe from the pain in my throat and chest. A stranger took pity on me and gave me his pair of ski goggles. That helped my eyes a little but not completely. I can’t believe I now live in a nation ...

CS1: CS + 5% silica gel
CS2: CS is microencapsulated with 5% silicone

Friday night (7/10) at the Justice Center in Portland. About 150 people in the park. Updates may be more infrequent tonight due to the the general chill vibes. #blacklivesmatter    #pdx #portlandoregon #oregon #blm #acab #portland #justicecenter
For tonight’s protest support there is @Bitchwitch20 with pizza, OHSU for medical stuff, and of course Riot Ribs. The Witches have brought lots of Pepsi cans, possibly topical. #blacklivesmatter #pdx #portlandoregon #oregon #blm #acab #portland #justicecenter

In downtown Portland Oregon on July 4th. Here we have the customary flag burning at the previous home of the elk statue in front of the Justice Center. #Portlandprotest #blacklivesmatter  #PDXprotests #pdx #portlandoregon #blm #4thofJuly #portland
So many fireworks in just the 20 minutes I’ve been here. Some folks in the crowd definitely are against the fireworks, either due to safety or cause they freak people out into thinking it’s a flashbang or gunfire. #Portlandprotest #fireworks #blm #blacklivesmatter #4thofJuly #pdx
Right now it’s about 500-750 people here in front of the Justice Center just chilling with some folks lighting fireworks. #Portlandprotest #blacklivesmatter  #PDXprotests #pdx #portlandoregon #blm #acab #4thofJuly #portland #Fireworks

Good morning. I’ve been President of the @ULPDX for 5 years and 3 months. Who wants to help me name all of the PPB chiefs and acting chiefs who have made these same comments to me during that time?
I’ll start. First, there was Chief Larry O’dea. I thought he was someone I could work with. 😬
Then he retired in June 2016 while under criminal investigation for shooting a friend during a camping trip. oregonlive.com/portland/2018/…
Who was the next PPB Chief?

A short thread:

1/ There is a question of whether #TearGas could increase longer term susceptibility to #covid19 from the damaging effects on the respiratory system.

The author cites a study (next tweet) which suggests this may be possible.

npr.org/sections/healt…
2/
In this prospective cohort study, the risk of developing a viral respiratory illness was significantly higher after exposure to the riot control agent CS, & increased w/ the exposure dose as well.

pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25003867/ Image
3/ @lisalsong wrote a great piece on this topic in @propublica.

In a conversation we had, the question came up: what about people who were not protesting but had tear gas exposure as it seeped into their homes?
