Over 100 men are on the fifth week of a hunger strike at Guantanamo.
More than half of the 166 men imprisoned there have been "Cleared for Release" by U.S. authorities. Not charged with any crime of terrorism or violence, they linger in the prison because of the Obama administration's and Congress' callous disregard for their basic legal and human rights.
They are peacefully protesting worsening prison conditions, religious provocation, and the crushing reality that after 11 years in indefinite detention, there is no end in sight to their suffering.
The mainstream media needs to bring this to light so the American public can put on the pressure to close Guantanamo now.
