Watch Yasiin Bey Being Force-Fed In Dramatic Guantánamo Bay Torture Reenactment Video

By 07.08.13

Yasiin Bey is always less than conventional. While his music hasn’t really reached his classic Black On Both Sides levels in a while, he’s still pushing the envelope in other ways. Recently, he put himself through the force-feeding procedures Guantánamo Bay detainees go through twice a day in a four-minute film created by Human Rights organization Reprieve and award-winning director Asif Kapadia. As Ramadan begins, more than 100 hunger-strikers continue their protest and more than 40 of them are being force-fed in a manner similar to what’s seen here with Yasiin.

The video is disturbing and graphic – you may want to finish your bowl of Kix before watching – and you can tell just how painful the whole procedure is. In fact, after watching it, I’m still trying to process what I just saw.

Take a look and hear Bey’s passionate words after the process is over.
