Yasiin Bey Demonstrates Force Feeding Procedure Used At Guantanamo Bay

Yasiin Bey breaks down in a video which shows the rapper undergoing a force feeding procedure conducted on detainees at Guantanamo Bay.

On June 15 in London, Yasiin Bey took part in a demonstration that briefly demonstrated the conditions select detainees at Guantanamo Bay, a detention camp located in Cuba, undergo on a daily basis.

The video of the demonstration was posted online this week via YouTube and shows the rapper taking part in a forced feeding procedure reportedly identical to the one conducted on 44 Guantanamo Bay detainees twice a day.

The video begins with a message that reads: “There are currently 120 detainees on hunger strike in Guantanamo Bay. 44 of them are being force fed against their will.” Yasiin then appears and announces that he is “here today to demonstrate the standard, operating procedure for force feeding detainees at Guantanamo Bay.”

The musician and Black Star member is then restrained in a chair using head, wrist, and leg restraints before a tube is placed through his nose and to the back of his throat.

Although it is a reported two-hour long procedure, Yasiin Bey underwent the force feeding for a little over a minute before confessing, “I really couldn’t take it.” Video of the force feeding procedure can be found below.

Not one to shy away from civil rights issues, Yasiin partnered with Center For Constitutional Rights and Communities United For Police Reform several months ago to release a PSA calling out the New York Police Department and its “stop-and-frisk” policy.

    anyone calling him a pussy bitch has never had a tube shoved down there naval cavity and throat. it creates the same illusion as water boarding where it feels like your drowning (in this case getting choked) besides i bet none of you sheep would volunteer.

    NEWSFLASH! Gitmo is closed. For about 2 years now, in fact. We can sit here and sympathize with the people there just like we can sympathize with POW's in the middle east, but there is a much bigger threat you dudes fail to see. Gitmo was closed down because it's no longer necessary. See, we passed this little bill called the "Patriot Act" which if you look it up, tells us that anyone, at any time could be called a "suspected terrorist". Once that happens, this bill states that the American constitution no longer applies. That being said, Gitmo is obsolete, and people are going to be getting force fed and water boarded all over this country. You won't hear Yasin Bey, or any of you jar heads speaking on that though....

    • Art Brooks

      Yup, the constitution can be used to wipe our asses pretty soon. This "Patriot" act, is just an excuse for the government to take away our civil rights any time they want. They got the public so gasses up and scared thru the bitch-ass TV, people just accept it...mindless fucken sheep.

    They are in the most maximum US prison for a reason. Just because so-and-so didn't murder a Humvee full of soldiers with bomb, it doesn't mean he didn't command people to burn and rape an entire town in Afghanistan, doesn't mean he didn't run guns through a network to the terrorists, or doesn't mean he provided them with intel, bomb making information, etc.

      Defrx that is a load of shit, at then end of the day governments are in a difficult position to keep there own country safe from a very dangerous and cowardly threat so if some people need to be obtained then so be it. You cant always play be the rules when at war with someone because the terrorists will use even more underhanded methods

    • DefRx

      You're so right, but that logic could be applied to yourself, or myself. You didn't kill anyone directly, but prove to me you didnt plan it, or where an accessory to it, or provided material support for it? Now please show your evidence to me in a secret military court, where your evidence can be dismissed out of hand and my evidence, proving your wrong doings is unavailable for you to defend yourself against because of state secrets and national security. Also your lawyer will be provided to you from a select list with the appropriate security clearance. We only need a 2/3 majority on this secret military jury to convict. I am sure selecting quoting of your emails, tweets, facebook, phone conversations could paint a very interesting picture of yourself. That's if we believe totally manufacturing evidence is out of the question.

    Real rap ..they in there for no reason ..i like mos def as a rapper...but he needs to leave this alone

  • FCK MOS DEF

    It's not a hunger strike because they're not allowed to use the same water fountains as white folk. It's not to protest "unfair treatment". The only possible way to martyr (actually think about the ramification of that word, MARTYR) yourself in Gitmo is starving. I wonder how Yasiin would feel if he lived in Afghanistan, and one of his friends there came to his neighborhood, lit his mom on fire, raped and shot his sisters in the face in front of him, enslave his friends into an army, kill the ones who don't, then poison all your wells of water and burn your home and slay your livestock - your means of living. F_CK YOU, Mos Def. You wouldn't dare have the balls to go to Afghanistan and meet with a REAL victim face to face to hear their story. You're going to defend slavers, mass murderers and rapists. Yasiin is a spoiled rich little princess who has nothing better to do with his time but defend rapist warlords, while the rest of us work hard for a living with the hope that we can avoid these aholes flying planes into Times Square and murdering our friends and family. He thinks this these are some kind of victims locked up that need a champion. So for the stupid dick that says, "you're an embarrassment if you think every Guantanamo Bay detainee is a terrorist." Leave the house, dipshiat. Turn off the internet. Come outside and get your ass kicked by life, instead of taking the word of your ignorant entertainers you idolize as all-knowing gods. He's another spoiled brat from Brooklyn who's had his ego stroked enough he thinks he's the ideal to follow. Yeah, "everyone in Gitmo is innocent because Mos Def told me so". Is it possible you fans could be even more retarded? Educate yourself for real, instead of all your Loose Change movies on YouTube.

    • Art Brooks

      ..."slavers, mass murderers and rapists". So U're talking about white people, right. Nah, Mos Def (fuck that sissy name he using now) ain't defending white people in this vid.

    • DefRx

      I don't believe it because Mos Def told me so... I believe it because Jimmy Carter has made a statement saying so, Carter still works for the US government on humanitarian issues where tact is needed. I also believe it because it is what official US government reports released by Reuters have confirmed. What proof do we have that these people are terrorist masterminds? (Anonymous government sources citing secret evidence does not count.) Read a book, hell just read wikipedia, learn the facts. Being hard on the streets has nothing to do with the domestic and international legal frameworks we are taught we live under. If you want the the streets to be the arbiter of law, then you are an anarchist, which is fine, but that is not society as it is structured in the present day.

Read up on the subject, you might be surprised. And learn something. Thirdly, he stopped it because he couldn't take it. That was partly the point - imagine what the full procedure is like. Pretty awful, and a complete failure of human rights on a par with any countries you 'Murica loving patriots could care to name. Again, well done Mos/Yasiin.

    Big up to Yasiin for doing this. The main problem with the so-called terrorists of Guantanamo they are only suspects and not convicts. The US had enough time to figure out if their imprisonment is right. If so, send them to a prison, and don't treat them like animals. But if they are not guilty pay them a 'refund', say sorry and let the fuck out them. Btw as a European I see the US as the main terrorist who provoke wars and interlope just to get more oil for more cars that destroys nature and to provide the lobby of armaments industry.

    • yea

      First: The leader in making clean energy is Bhutan. Second: I'm not mad cuz US saved me from nazis because I'm from Eastern Europe and the Soviet 'saved' me (while they occupied the land) Third: You can't find Arab countries even on a map so you better shut the fuck up with your cynic shit. Fourth: 'Nobody cares what you see' means you didn't understand a word from my post. Fifth: Who cares about two buildings? US destroyed Iraq, tried to occupy Afghanistan to control drug business, US attacked Vietnam, Korea, Grenada just to make the lobby stronger. US murdered millions with A-bombs in Japan, trained bin Laden, overlook the genocide in the Caucasus to make Putin overlook the war on the Middle East, and so on. So get back to Obama's asshole and find the Nobel peace prize.

The American borders are always open for folks to EXIT.

      "Reuters reported the official list included 78 names.[2] A further 17 captives have been repatriated or transferred since President Obama took office." "By May 2011, 600 detainees had been released.[27] Most of the men have been released without charges or transferred to facilities in their home countries." "According to former U.S. president Jimmy Carter, about half have been cleared for release, yet have little prospect of ever obtaining their freedom." "As of June 2013, 46 captives (in addition to 2 who were deceased) were designated to be detained indefinitely, because the government said the prisoners were too dangerous to transfer and there was insufficient admissible evidence to try them" Sources: Wikipedia & Reuters

      "WHO GIVES A FCUK WHAT HAPPENS TO CONVICTED TERRORISTS?

      Accused not convicted

    • Adam Hussein

      The vast majority of people in Guantanamo are not convicted, they are indefiniately detained. Ones that have been convicted have been done so using secret military courts and secret evidence. That is not law, thats just bullshit. The reason Guantanamo exists is to keep these people in legal limbo where they are not convicted or due to stand trial and there is no evidence to secure a conviction but unnamed government officials are convinced they are a threat to global security. I believe more than half of the people in Guantanamo have been cleared for release however there is no mechanism available to deport or rehome these people due to the grandstanding in congress.

      I thought Guantanomo detainees weren't necessarily convicted of anything, just suspected of it. This is an interesting though. If everyone's on hunger strike, is it better to force-feed them or just let them starve?
