“Tear Gas” and “Smoke Bombs” Revealed to be Expired and Damaging to Health
Security forces have been consistent with their extreme use of tear gas. What bewildered me most was the effects it had on the demonstrators. Extreme symptoms like seizure-like palpitations, vommiting, extreme burning sensation in lungs and entire chest area are just to name a few. Long term effects are still unknown. All that is known is that is it extremely damaging to one’s health. About a month ago, I was at a march that ended in security forces attacking us with live ammunition and “tear gas”. I inhaled a small amount and was able to flee. This small amount began to make it hard to breathe. I also felt the muscles in my chest stiffen. It was painful. Since then, I have had a persistent cough. Here is a document revealing that the “smoke bombs” are expired:
