Guantanamo: hunger strikers in critical state
President Obama has declared a fair judicial process for every detainee held in Guantánamo Bay prison camp. Over 100 Guantánamo inmates are currently on hunger strike - some of them for over three months - including former British resident Shaker Aamer. Having been detained without trial indefinitely, with no sign of release despite being approved for transfer out of the camp years ago, Shaker told his family he believes he will die in the camp.
