Tear gas campaign launched
War Resisters League is launching a campaign to end the use of tear gas and related chemical weapons used (and exported) by various states. WRL sees this focus as a way to link many empowered struggles, as well as to expand what is conventionally thought of as “anti-war” work. Most importantly, they aim to hold the campaign accountable by taking direct leadership from communities that are hit hardest by militarization. People struggling in the Global South, the U.S.'s more than 2 million incarcerated, and people of color and poor communities most harshly policed worldwide.
