Hunger strikers pledge to die in Guantanamo

More than 200 detainees in Guantanamo Bay are in their fifth week of a hunger strike, the Guardian has been told.

Statements from prisoners in the camp which were declassified by the US government on Wednesday reveal that the men are starving themselves in protest
at the conditions in the camp and at their alleged maltreatment - including
desecration of the Qur'an - by American guards.

Do you think we could divert the food they're not eating to people on the Gulf coast that really deserve it?
