This video is not for the faint of heart.

    As Ramadan begins, more than 100 hunger-strikers in Guantánamo Bay continue their protest. More than 40 of them are being force-fed. A leaked document sets out the military instructions, or standard operating procedure, for force-feeding detainees. In this four-minute film made by Human Rights organisation Reprieve and Bafta award-winning director Asif Kapadia, US actor and rapper Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), experiences the procedure.

Seeing this procedure visualized makes it that much more horrifying. I'm disgusted having watched that video, and I think that's the point of it.

I couldn't even make it through the video; it was horrifying.
