Activist Force-Fed in Solidarity with Prisoners

An activist on day 80 of a hunger strike has undergone nasal tube feeding in front of the Oakland State Building, in order to depict the forced feeding of inmates at Guantanamo Bay. The action draws parallels between the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and inmates in California prisons who carried out a 60-day hunger strike this year over solitary confinement policies. Christopher Martinez reports from Oakland.
