    Blackout TV: US media turn blind eye to Gitmo hunger strike



    Published on 25 Mar 2013

    The hunger strike among prisoners at Guantanamo Bay is into day 48 - but their plight's still struggling to garner wider attention. Lawyers say over 100 inmates are refusing food - and are concerned about their deteriorating health. Prison officials continue to downplay the protest, and there's little coverage in the U.S. media, as Marina Portnaya explains.


    Published on 23 Mar 2013

    The Guantanamo Bay hunger strike has gone beyond the critical 45 day mark, when doctors say the body is deprived of nutrition. Officials at the detention center in Cuba have acknowledged more detainees are joining the protest over alleged mistreatment. This comes amid a Pentagon request for 49 million dollars to build a new prison building and carry out renovations - despite a 4 year-old promise to shut it down. Gayane Chichakyan has more.

    Dead or free: Gitmo prisoners ready to starve to death...updates



    Published on 2 Apr 2013

    For 56 days now, dozens of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have taken part in a massive hunger strike. The reason for the refusal to eat is an effort to protest the treatment within the facility, and according to the prisoners' attorneys they are willing to lose their lives in the process. According to the US military, some of the captives have been force fed through feeding tubes, but still much of the details of the protest are shrouded in secrecy. Jason Leopold, lead investigative reporter with TruthOut, joins us with the latest.

    Pit of Hopelessness: Guantanamo grows tense, inmates suicidal



    Published on 22 Apr 2013

    More than a half of the detainees in Guantanamo Bay are now on hunger strike, according to the U.S. military. So far, 5 have been hospitalized at the prison camp, and 16 are being force-fed. And as RT's Gayane Chichyakyan explains, the fate of the hunger strikers has broad international implications...

    Force feeding at Gitmo branded 'torture' by UN - Obama forced to speak on Gitmo hunger strike



    Published on 2 May 2013

    Force-feeding inmates at the Guantanamo Bay prison is 'torture', and 'breaks international law.' That's how the United Nations labeled the treatment of detainees at the facility. As many as 23 prisoners are now being forced to eat through nasal tubes, as a mass hunger strike there nears the three-month mark.

    ---------------------

    Obama forced to speak on Gitmo hunger strike, and says it should be closed and is harming the US reputation:



    Published on 30 Apr 2013

    On Tuesday, President Barack Obama addressed his concerns for the Guantanamo Bay hunger strike and reiterated his goal of closing down the military detention facility. Obama said he doesn't want the individuals participating in the protest to die and new reports indicate that as many as 130 of the 166 prisoners detained there are refusing to eat. RT's Meghan Lopez brings us more on the situation in Cuba.

    100 Days of Hunger Strike: US no closer to Gitmo shutdown



    Published on 16 May 2013

    It's been exactly one hundred days since detainees at Guantanamo Bay camp started their hunger strike. The official number of inmates refusing food has been increasing on an almost daily basis - and has reached at least one hundred. Around thirty hunger- strikers are being subjected to force-feeding - a controversial tactic condemned by the UN and the international medical community as inhumane. And all those numbers are only likely to grow. Because what started as a strike against mistreatment has turned into a battle against indefinite detention and Washington's broken promises to close the prison at the center of America's War on Terror.

    Gitmo detainees demand justice through hunger




    Published on 3 Jun 2013

    It has been more than three months since detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility began participating in a massive hunger strike. Now 13 inmates involved in the protest have written a letter to their military doctors demanding better treatment and are requesting a non-military physician to assess their health. The detainees believe that their acts will lead to justice after nearly a decade of imprisonment. Human rights attorney David Remes, who represents several of the detainees, brings us more.

    About Time BBC reported on Guantanamo's asymmetric war as hunger strike continues

    It's high time the MSM does an investigation on Guantanamo. I have been posting updates in this thread mainly from RT and Channel four news. It's a shame the MSM are so silent. This appears to be a complete report.



    Guantanamo's asymmetric war as hunger strike continues

    Jonathan Beale visits "Camp Five" where the Guantanamo hunger strike started

    A hunger strike at at the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, which started with a handful of prisoners, has now become a mass protest with 103 out of the 166 detainees still held here taking part. On Wednesday night, the number of those detainees being "force-fed" rose to 41 - up from 38 just 24 hours ago. The protest began in February and has been growing for almost four months. Lawyers representing detainees say it was sparked by tougher prison searches.

    The US military, which runs the camp, says those searches uncovered various contraband items, including homemade weapons that have been used to attack prison guards. The detainees' lawyers claim that during those searches the Koran was mishandled - something the US military strongly deny.

    "Zac", the US military's "cultural adviser" who liaises with the prisoners, says it is a familiar tactic to attract the attention of the outside world. Prisoners, many of whom have been held here for more than a decade, most without charge, do not want to be forgotten.

    We were shown around empty cells and the communal areas of Camps Five and Six. On previous visits, we have been allowed to watch the detainees mingle together from a distance. Over the years, the harsh regime appeared to have been relaxed.

    Journalists who visit Guantanamo are still not allowed to identify or talk to the detainees. This time, though, we were kept well away from those being held. The nearest we came was during early-morning prayers when we were able to hear, but not see, them behind their heavy cell doors.

    Most prisoners are now locked up, on their own, for 22 hours a day. The old privileges of communal living are being denied to all but a few - around 20 of the so-called "compliant detainees".



    Guantanamo prisoner Shackles are called "humane restraints" and force-feeding is a banned word, too It was US President George W Bush's administration that invented a new language and new rules to justify Guantanamo's existence as a camp for "unlawful enemy combatants" - without the long-established rights of "prisoners of war" .

    'Enteral feeding' Though they now apply the Geneva Conventions at Guantanamo, old habits appear to die hard. So shackles used to restrain detainees are never called that. They are simply referred to as "humane restraints". Force-feeding is also a term that is avoided. Here it's called "enteral feeding".

    We were shown around the medical centre where some of those prisoners are fed nutritional supplements to ensure they survive and maintain a safe body weight. As with the camp guards, the medical staff did not want to be identified.

    Update: Day 150: Gitmo hunger strike continues amidst world's outrage

    Day 150: Gitmo hunger strike continues amidst world's outrage





    Published on 5 Jul 2013

    The hunger strike in Guantanamo detention facility enters its 150th day with prisoners accusing the guards of worsening treatment and abusive searches. Doctors urge to stop the force-feeding in the prison and more voices call to shut it down. The US government is fighting a legal effort to stop the force-feeding of hunger-striking detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Lawyers for several prisoners have appealed to a Washington court to intervene - but the administration says federal judges have no say on what happens at the camp. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/uxctic
