American press hides away (for Obama) news about the Guantanamo concentration camp hunger strike now in its second month

ss2005-05-17image$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ The US propaganda system sure aids out in assisting the US government and US military in their continued torture of people who have been convicted of no crime, as is the case with many of the POWs (‘detainees’) held by the Pentagon on Cuban territory in its concentration camp placed there. Actually, these hunger strikes have been going on at Guantanamo for over a decade now, with the compliant US big corporate press hiding this fact away from the American public…

‘Hunger strikes have been a fixture at Guantanamo since shortly after it opened in January 2002. The largest one began in the summer of 2005 and reached a peak of around 131 prisoners, when the facility held about 500 detainees. The U.S. military broke the protest by strapping detainees down and force-feeding them a liquid nutrient mix to prevent them from starving themselves to death. As of Monday, the U.S. was feeding eight of the 21 prisoners on strike, Durand said.’ (…Taken from ABC reportage- US Says Hunger Strike Grows to 21 at Guantanamo)
