I'm Fasting to Highlight the Plight of the Guantánamo Hunger Strikers
For the last week I have been fasting in solidarity with the men on hunger strike in the US prison at Guantánamo Bay, forgoing all food and taking only liquids. I began day one thinking about a book I had recently read: former detainee Ahmed Errachidi's The General . Errachidi had worked as a chef in London for 18 years but was sold for a bounty to US forces after he travelled to Pakistan.
