We are a group of concerned Hong Kong residents who are raising money for independent testing of soil samples from at least five places around Hong Kong which have been heavily tear gassed.
In the absence of any government environmental impact assessments, health and safety assessments or even public information about the chemical composition of the tear gas being used, we would like to conduct independent testing so we can understand and advise people on the risks to their health as well as demand proper decontamination and advice from the government.
We are especially concerned about the health impacts on children, the elderly, and other vulnerable populations including our pets.
It costs $3000 HKD plus shipping to send one sample abroad for analysis. We are working with environmental consultants who are helping us with the sample collection and testing. Please help us raise enough funds for a minimum five samples
