There are currently 120 prisoners at the extra-legal concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay.

106 of these prisoners are on hunger-strike, 44 of them are being force-fed against their will, in contravention of international human rights law.

As the hunger-strike passes the 150 days mark and the Muslim holy day of Ramadan approaches, US actor and rapper Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), experiences the procedure of force-feeding.
