“Celebrities” fasting in support of Guantanamo prisoners in no danger of dying unfortunately.

Roger Waters – Widespread disappointment registered at prospect of continued life.

​Celebrities are fasting in support of Guantanamo Bay prisoners who are being “left at death’s door” by a new Trump administration policy towards protesting detainees.

Since the camp was established on the US naval base on Cuba, prisoners have protested both their treatment and incarceration by launching hunger strikes. Under the administration of Barack Obama, who vowed to close the prison, military guards force-fed prisoners before their weight dropped dramatically.

Yet lawyers say under a new approach adopted by the Trump administration, prisoners on hunger strike are being allowed to physically deteriorate considerably further, as prison authorities engage in a game of “chicken” with the inmates.
