Ramadan starts tomorrow, Tuesday July 9th and there are currently 120 detainees at Guantanamo Bay acting under a hunger strike. Among acts against those on strikes, 40 of them are being force-fed. Now, Mos Def is volunteering to go through the same force-feeding procedure to show people what exactly it is that they are going through. President Obama has been urged to stop the procedure by Islamic community leaders. The government currently has plans to alter its procedure by issuing the force feeding at night.
Mos Def connects with Human Rights Organisation Reprieve and Bafta Award winning director Asif Kapadia to give us an unprecedented look into what occurs during the procedure.
