Abdulhadi Alkhawaja Painfully Force-Fed


He continues to hunger strike for justice.

by Stephen Lendman

May 1 marks his 83rd hunger striking day. At issue is justice denied him and all Bahrainis. One of the world's most ruthless dictatorships terrorizes them.

They resist courageously. Abdulhadi inspires them. He's now painfully force-fed against his will.

After being denied visitations for days, family members finally saw him Sunday in a prison hospital. His wife, Khadija , said he's weak but in good spirits.

He told her he's being drugged and force-fed through a nasoenteric tube. It reaches his stomach or small bowel through his nose.

Reports on force-feeding Guantanamo prisoners call it torture. Thickness of a finger inserted tubes through noses and throats abrasively draw blood. They also cause severe pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and shortness of breath.
