Video of my first tear gas experience. I added commentary to the footage I shot while checking out the scene at the latest protest on Mohammad Mahmoud St. in Cairo, Egypt. The tear gas really messed me up for a couple days. Next time, I’m bringing a gas mask. At the very least, a wet cloth doused in vinegar.

Here’s the latest on what started the protest:

“Over 1,000 people were injured on Wednesday after Egyptian security forces responded to protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square with tear gas and rubber bullets. The crackdown beganon Tuesday night after police reportedly beat and arrested family members of those killed during the eighteen-day uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak, at an event commemorating martyrs of the revolution. On Sunday, the family members had erupted in angry protest and hurled rocks at police vehicles after a judge in Cairo again postponed the trial of former interior minister Habib al-Adly and six of his aides.” - from The Nation.
