(WASHINGTON, DC, 5/14/13) – Yesterday, the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) joined a coalition of 19 other civil liberties and human rights groups and health professionals in sending an open letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel requesting an end to the cruel practice of force-feeding hunger-striking prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. The coalition also called for an investigation into recent allegations of military retaliation against striking prisoners and related abuses.
