This video might be challenging for some viewers, because of the people of color, the rap-inspired chant, and its (quite reasonable!) support for the rights of the (innocent) Muslims who are hunger-striking.
I posted the video in accordance with the email I received:
The Peace Poets and Witness Against Torture have collaborated on a Hunger Strike Video [shown above] that WE NEED YOUR HELP posting, sharing & promoting. If you are on Facebook, please share directly from the
Witness Against Torture Page (& ‘like’ the page if you haven’t already).
