CAIR Action Alert #694
Urge Pentagon to End Forced Feeding of Guantanamo Hunger Strike Prisoners
(WASHINGTON, DC, 5/14/13) – Yesterday, the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) joined a coalition of 19 other civil liberties and human rights groups and health professionals in sending an open letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel requesting an end to the cruel practice of force-feeding hunger-striking prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. The coalition also called for an investigation into recent allegations of military retaliation against striking prisoners and related abuses.
At least 100 of the 166 prisoners are on hunger strike, many who have already been approved for release, with 29 men being force-fed against their will. Some of the men have been detained up to 11 years without charge or trial. Many prisoners are on strike and believe they will die in Guantanamo.
