Help the fight against police brutality!

You should definitely do this, but please be safe and knowledgeable about it! Here are some resources for how to safely film/photograph police brutality, as well as information on YOUR rights as you do so:

Please be aware that different states have different laws on the matter.  Check into them so you can know you specific laws, and what to expect if you film the police.  Also check with your state’s chapter of the ACLU; many of them have tips on this matter, and some have pocket foldouts of your rights that you can use to convince the police that no, you aren’t doing anything wrong.

Stay woke.

Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it.

Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed “why they don’t hire women.” If you take Kirkham’s account at its word, it actually gets way worse.

Hey guys I need your help spreading this on social media so our people in Ferguson can defend themselves from attacks from the police.

This is important to add. When constructing this make sure the elastic to secure the bottle to the top of your head does not puncture the plastic or if it does the rubber needs to cover it. Also, make sure you keep it tight to your head as the gas only needs a small cap and tear gas can irritate greatly in small concentrations. (it can be flammable in high concentrations.) I would recommend diving goggles for your eyes as well as doing your best to ensure the bottle fits tightly against your forehead, jaw, cheeks, and chin.  Also if you can make sure the elastic can be tightened and loosened, this will help with sealing out the tear gas.
