The horrors of Guantanamo Bay force feeding standard procedure has been brought to light when hip hop icon Mos Def, now Yasiin Bey, volunteered himself to be subjected to force-feeding conducted on Guantanamo Bay prisoners who attempt to go on hunger-strike. The video, produced by the human rights organization Reprieve, was released on Monday, July 8.

"I'm here today to demonstrate the standard operating procedure for force-feeding detainees at Guantanamo Bay," said Yasiin Bey.

For authenticity, anonymous medical volunteers performed the standard operating procedure on Bey, who wore a prison issue orange jumpsuit and was chained, shackled, tied down, clamped, and fastened.

A difficult procedure to witness, the medical personel forced a thick plastic tube up Yasiin Bey's nostrils, prompting an agonizing series of screams and cries from Bey. The overwhelming sense of torture is amplified with Bey's repeated pleas to end the procedure. Finally, Yasiin Bey breaks down and cries.

When the demonstration was completed, Yasiin Bey tried his best to describe all the sensations and emotions he experienced from the terrifying procedure.

"The tube.. the first part is not that bad but then you get this burning... this burning. It starts to be really unbearable, it feels like something is getting into your brain and down the back of your throat. I really couldn't take it."

The bold video was released by human rights organization Reprieve and is intended to rally support for the 106 Guantanamo Bay prisoners that are practicing a hunger strike. According to Politico reports, 45 inmates are currently being force fed in the same manner Yasiin Bey was.

Among the opponents against force-feeding standard operating procedure include federal judge Gladys Kessler.

"It is perfectly clear from the statements of detainees, as well as statements from the organizations just cited, that force-feeding is a painful, humiliating and degrading process," said U.S. District Court Judge Gladys Kessler.
