Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) Forced-Fed, Shows Support For Hunger-Striking Guantanamo Detainees [VIDEO]


In a powerful demonstration, Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) attempts to withstand force-feeding techniques that are currently used at Guantanamo.

This video might be difficult for some to watch, but I highly recommend you watch it. The demonstration proves to be too much for Yasiin and he cries out for them to stop inserting the tube.

Yasiin made the choice to stop the demonstration, but the detainees at Guantanamo don’t have a choice. Clearly, the treatment of the detainees and the living conditions are an inherent human rights issue, and Yasiin made a powerful move in bringing even more awareness to this issue.

Watch the video below…it’s quite emotional. When Yasiin breaks down in tears, I found myself shedding a few as well. Such a sad situation facing these Guantanamo detainees, who are currently on hunger-strike in attempt to fight for better living conditions.
