Tear gas cannisters about to land in the university of Thessaloniki. I can't think of many things worse than being tear gassed. Your lungs just stop drawing oxygen and for what seems like an eternity you feel that you'll never breathe again. The stinging eyes I can hack but the feeling that someone has just removed your lungs, is scary beyond belief.

I am not sure if i think that you are probably quite schocked with the frequent use of tear gas by the greek police compared to their counterparts in UK. The tear gas used in Greece is quite dangerous especially if you consider that a large quantity of the tear gas canisters are beyond their date of use. I would not be at all amazed if in 20 years a large number of riot policemen die from lung cancer or any other ilnessess related with the respiratory system.
