Hosts Sue Caumont and Jeff Beller welcome Elliot Adams a veteran, former Mayor, and former President of Veterans for Peace who has been on a hunger strike for nearly two months in protest to the US governments operation of Guantanamo Bay were the US says it is holding "enemy combatants". Elliot has taken to internet radio to get his message out since the mainstream media has neglected to cover the strike. Elliot explains why he feels they wont touch it.

Listen live Fridays at 8:00 PM ET only on Going Beyond Radio.

This from Mr. Adams:

Guantanamo is wrong morally and by all religions, by international law and by US law. It violates the Magna Carta, Common Law (the basis of our law), the United Nations Charter, the Nuremberg Principles, the Convention Against Torture, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. It also is an affront to what our founding fathers set out in the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, the dream and image of America as a place of justice, the things I grew up being told the US flag stood for, and even national security. How have we gotten to this low point?
