Posted on the 17 October 2013 by Paul Phillips @sparkingtheleft

titlepieceA wonderful, moving animated video at the The Guardian’s website depicts what the hunger strike is like for detained Guantanamo Bay prisoners. It is based on the narratives of five released Gitmo prisoners who participated in the strikes and how they were brutalized by the Americans there.

Someday, we’ll look back at this era in American history and feel shame and regret for not doing more for the innocent men still being detained despite being cleared for release.

You must watch this short film.
