    Default Mos takes one for the detainees

    What do you all think of this?

    "Rapper-actor Yasiin Bey, aka Mos Def, has released a video of his being force-fed in protest of a procedure the U.S. government has administered to dozens of Guantanamo Bay prisoners. His voluntary feeding was orchestrated and recorded by the human rights group Reprieve and Bafta. It shows Bey, 39, dressed in an orange prison jump suit and shackled to a chair while a feeding tube is pushed through his nose and into his body. He was subject to the “standard operating procedure” for force-feeding detainees in the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba..."



    "More than 100 prisoners have been on a hunger strike for several months, and 45 of them are being forcibly fed through a “nasogastric tube,” according to the Justice Department. With the start of the Islamic observance Ramadan today, in which Muslims worldwide fast for a month, increased scrutiny is being placed on the practice of forcing detainees to ingest liquid nutrients despite their fast. Bey, born Dante Smith in Brooklyn, N.Y., is also Muslim."

    That was very hard to watch. In my opinion, they shouldn't force feed people who don't want to eat. Force feeding to a form of torture. Seriously? Pushing a tube in an individual's nose to feed them?

    Keep them alive for the money.

    We already know they do foul shit at guantanamo. Remember when they said 'we're gonna shut it down'? Lol.

    These kind of protests are meaningless if you don't look at the big picture. Vote for one politician over another, protest a logging company, campaign against government approved human torture; these are meaningless cosmetic changes that effectively change nothing.

    I agree. It's messed up that this shit goes on in the first place & I give him props for attempting to endure it. But unfortunately... He just did that for absolutely no reason cause I can guarantee you somebody is getting food juice pumped up their nose as we speak. SMH

    I haven't seen the whole thing yet. Though I bet it beats getting a head chopped off and used as a bowling ball, after a capture in some areas, sugar.
