As hunger-strikers continue in protest at Guantánamo Bay, with Ramadan beginning, many of them are being force-fed, per a "leaked document" which lays out standard operating procedure for force-feeding detainees. 

Yasiin Bey (formerly-known as Mos Def) appears in this four-minute short film made by Human Rights organisation Reprieve and BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia, in order to show how exactly the force-feeding procedure happens. 

NOTE: This might be hard to watch for some of you.
