Subscribe to the Guardian HERE: bitly.com/UvkFpD
In March 2012, reports of a hunger strike at Guantánamo Bay, the US detention camp in Cuba, began to surface. Details were sketchy and were contradicted by statements from the US military. Now, using testimony from five detainees, this animated film reveals the daily brutality of life inside Guantánamo. Today there are 17 prisoners still on hunger strike, 16 of whom are being force-fed. Two are in hospital• Warning: contains scenes some viewers might find disturbing! In this Sunday's Observer read the extraordinary story of the making of Guantánamo Bay: The Hunger Strikes, plus an interview with David Morrissey about why he got involved

Watch Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) go through the Guantánamo Bay force feeding procedure here- ruvid.net/video/video-z6ACE-BBPRs.html

@Stephen Bailey if it was evident what they did then there would have been a trial, evidence for and against would have been presented. If you're right then there would have been a conviction, but there wasn't . Muslim or not the same concepts still apply: people are people and should be treated as such. A fair trial and just punishment aren't ment to only exist on paper, and if they're not put into practice then any concept of right or wrong within the law goes out the window. I never mentioned Obama or Trump; it's largely Congress handling these things. If you want my two cents then I'd give Obama credit for at least making an attempt to stop things like this, even if it fell flat. Not that my opinion on the character of the President has anything to do with this.

@Rusty World you don't have to be convicted to know that they're guilty. Those are very nice words written on paper which absolutely means nothing when you know a person is guilty.. It is evident what these people have done and they should stay there until they rot. By the way they got over there on their own let them try and get back on their own. So in "reality" they are guilty until proven innocent. There is no doubt what they did aiding and abetting America's enemies, at least with the anyone who has a brain and is not muslim. Those are the only two sets of people who can have any sympathy for these barbaric Savages. Oh it was under Obama that she lost her citizenship if you want to check it out. Trump is just following through on what was already done.
Rusty World

These people were never convicted. "Innocent until proven guilty" is the basis of the justice system and in this case they're innocent. Even if they were guilty cruel and unusual punishment is against the US constitution so even then it would be a double standard on the part of the American government.

For people who don't understand why this is wrong let me explain, secret courts and trials may start with "enemies of the state" but they never end there, this is because it creates power structures for people who want to, can exploit, this has been proven time and time again, I fear it may be too late but if you, the reader, don't try to stop these "black sites" it will just be a matter of time before you become interned in one too.

People get nasogastric tubes all the time at the hospital and they don’t have to be this way. You lube up a thin tube, insert threw the nostril, and advance the tube down as the patient sips on water until you get it to the stomach (we measure before hand from tip of the nose, to pinna of the ear, to xiphoid process, and that’s the length you go). You tilt the person’s chin to their chest to close off the windpipe and open up the esophagus. Then once it’s down, you keep the tube in place until the order is discontinued. Everyone I’ve talked to says it’s unpleasant and I always feel bad when I have to do the procedure on patients. But if you do it correctly, it’s placed in a matter of seconds. If you have an incompetent person performing the procedure, there’s choking, vomiting, blood and snot. How they are depicting ng tube insertion in this video is unnecessarily cruel. And wtf is up with jamming whole cans of tube feed down?! That’s gonna make someone puke! Everything about this is preforming it wrong to intentionally inflict pain.

Oh, like for example Murat Kurnaz, a german turk who wanted to study more about the Quran in Pakistan, where he then got arrested by the pakistani police, then delivered to an US Air Force Base in Afghanistan and then got sent, without a trial, directly to Guantanamo Bay and got tortured there for 5 years, for an assumption, without a trial. Just for being at the false place at the false time? This isn't something, a democraty does, Treating people without trial is something, dictators like Zedong or Hitler did that stuff and it should be a part of the past and not something, nowadays happening.
