Before I say anything else, this video is graphic and not for everybody’s eyes, so watch with caution. Rapper Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def, volunteered to be force fed under the same procedure as is the prisoners in Guantánamo Bay who have been on a hunger strike since February. This is to raise awareness as to what is actually going on in the prison and to get Obama to stop it for the Islamic fast of Ramadan. As of now there are 120 prisoners partaking in the hunger strike and 44 of them are being force fed under their will.
