Before we get any further, we should warn you that this video above isn’t pretty to look at, in fact, far from it. Yasiin Bey, in cooperation with Reprieve, a human rights organization dedicated to the treatment of prisoners, reenacts the standard operating procedure for force-feeding prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. Or more accurately, the procedure is reenacted on him. It’s not a pretty look at all, excruciating in fact, and makes you wonder if the US government has really stopped the use of torture.

The Guantanamo prison camp, establish by the Bush Administration after 9/11, was created so that the US government could imprison terror subjects without having to follow American laws. Despite Obama’s calls that the camp will close, it is still open, and detainees are still held without the promise of a trial. About 100 of the 120 detainees are hunger-striking, and 40 are subjected to this force-feeding procedure.
