In a sombre video Yasiin Bey (nee Mos Def) linked up with The Guardian and human rights group Reprieve to film a video highlighting the treatment of Guantanamo Bay prisoners who are being force fed. Protesting against their detention without due process by holding a hunger strike, this is one amongst many acts against their will these detainees have to face.
In a leaked document to Al Jazeera titled Standard Operating Procedure: Medical Management of Detainees on Hunger Strike it details their treatment. Wearing the typical orange jumpsuit, arms and legs chained, Bey gets seated where his head, hands and feet are restrained and a lubricated tube is forced down his nostril.
This procedure happens twice a day to over 40 detainees and takes about two hours each time.
