Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) Force Fed Under Standard Guantanamo Bay Procedure

I've always been a huge fan of Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), from his music, to his acting, to his thought-provoking social views. He has teamed up with The Guardian to give us a shocking glimpse into the twice daily force feeding procedure used on Gitmo detainees on hunger strike. This is one of the most disturbing videos I've seen outside of Vice. Even though it was voluntary, I couldn't help feeling Yasiin's distress. My thoughts on it at this time are irrelevant. The important thing is that it gets people talking. Via The Guardian.
