Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) Demonstrates Standard Guantánamo Bay Force-Feeding procedure – video

Guantánamo Bay continues to be a hot button topic even after President Obama made a promise to shut it down during his campaign 5 years ago. Throughout those 5 years not only has it remained open, but it has remained a controversial point of discussion through accusations of torture, inhumane treatments, etc. Today these issues continue to surface as more than 100 hunger-strikers in Guantánamo Bay continue their protest an more than 40 of them being force-fed.

Human Rights organization Reprieve, Bafta award-winning director Asif Kapadia, and  actor/rapper Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) made this four-minute film, based on actual leaked documents that lay out the military instructions, or standard operating procedure, for force-feeding detainees
