Hunger strike at Guantánamo Bay—Close it down!

The U.S.  Government, often using the U.N. as a front its agenda, likes to complain about political prisoners in the Democratic People’s Republic of (North) Korea with its “gulag-like” conditions even though this country continues to operate a racist and oppressive prison at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba.

This Sunday the World Can’t Wait organization is trying to bring attention to this government’s refusal to close that U.S. prison and for those prisoners who are holding a hunger strike over the conditions they are forced to endure, years after the Iraq War is supposed to over.

Guantánamo foreign prisoners of war who have been stripped of all their human rights and treated as animals since this government considers them to be foreign fighters with no right to due process.

This government has stripped these prisoners of their human rights, since they are not U.S. citizens. This policy is not only a violation of human rights it is down-right racist. It seems to imply that non-U.S. citizens are some-how less human than those born in this country. That seems to be the only reason these people can be held without any trial or due process of law.
