While filming the Occupy Wall Street peaceful protest for a documentary I am working on, I was pepper sprayed by SFPD without warning. I was immediately blinded, and because it was raining, the pepper spray kept running into my eyes from my hair keeping me blinded for nearly an hour. Protesters guided me to safety multiple times as the police apparently were surging at the crowd. They also secured my gear and secured it in my backpack. Street medics treated me and hustled me several blocks away to safety. Eventually I was able to open my eyes again and interviewed myself.
