July 8, 2013

Awareness. A crazy thing, because once you have been made aware.. you can never “un-know it”

As Ramadan begins, more than 100 hunger strikers continue their silent protests in GuantánamoMore than 40 of them are being force-fed.

Via a leaked document which explains the military instructions to force feed, or “standard operating procedure”, for force-feeding detainees, Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) volunteered to undergo the procedure and make a shirt film. Below is the four-minute film made by Human Rights organisation Reprieve and BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia. You can never un-see or un-know this.

Warning: This video is extremely graphic and may be hard to watch for some.
