Chemical Weapons

Maria and I were shot with an Israeli chemical stink cannon mounted on a truck today at the Friday Bi'lin demonstration.

showered, scrubbed with soap after, changed clothes.... still smell like awful. It smells like a chemical combination of shit, sewage, and death... but it sticks to your skin and all your clothes. We weren't so bothered with it at the demonstration (as the tear gas and the soldiers coming out to arrest people is more immediately bothersome), but afterward it is really really annoying.

A video of today's demonstration posted by Hiatham al Katib:

The BBC did an article on what it called "skunk"
