REPORT: The Guantanamo Prisoner Hunger Strikes and Protests: February 2002-August 2005

This report chronicles the history of prisoner protests at the detention center at Guantánamo Bay Naval Station from February 2002 to August 2005 based upon the information known to date. An important aspect of this history is the U.S. military’s efforts to conceal the scope and significance of the widespread prisoner protests. Our country cannot afford to detain prisoners beyond the rule of law and without judicial oversight. Prisoners are now prepared to die in an effort to receive a fair hearing and humane treatment.
