FERGUSON, MO. (KMOX) - Even though there was no tear gas Thursday night, some advice is being given to protestors from a source very familiar with tear gas.

It came from some Palestinians on Twitter, giving advice to protestors in Ferguson.

One Palestinian woman tweeted, “when I used to get tear gassed I would remind myself this pain will pass so I wouldn’t collapse, it Helps.”

She went on to say always make sure to run against the wind and don’t rub your eyes.

There is even advice from a Palestinian doctor from East Jerusalem who co-founded Physicians for Palestine. He also suggested those affected don’t wash their eyes.

Another man advised protestors to keep close to the police.
