With the months-long hunger strike by detainees making the news, the detention facility at Guantanamo is once again back in the spotlight.
The hunger strike in Guantanamo has grown to more than half of the detainees there in the detention camp on the U.S. Army base in Cuba. At least 84 of the facility’s 166 detainees are now participating, protesting the conditions and their indefinite captivity. Detainees are refusing food, some of them since Feb. 10 following a search and confiscation of some of their belongings. The government has responded, force-feeding many of the detainees through tubes and 40 more medical personnel have been sent to assist with the effort. We will talk to: Carlos Warner, attorney with the Federal Public Defender of the Northern District of Ohio who is representing 11 Guantánamo detainees. David Schanzer professor at Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy and director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security at Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill. Laura Pitter, counterterrorism advisor for Human Rights Watch's US Program.

Chapter 2: Water Rights Dispute Between States
Texas has been suffering from a severe drought and rapidly growing Dallas-Fort Worth has found itself without an ample source of water. As a way to quench this thirst, the area has been looking to Oklahoma for help. Oklahomans have refused, given Oklahoma law prohibits sending water out-of-state. As a result Texans sought for relief through the Red River Compact, an agreement between Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas that Congress approved in 1980. The case reached the Supreme Court today where Texas argued the compact means they have a right to 25 percent of the water in question, a claim Oklahoma disputes. We talk to Erik Jaffe, Principle at Erik Jaffe PC and James McDonald, an associate at Williams & Connolly LLP.
Chapter 3: Texas Fertilizer Plant
As authorities and residents sift through clues in order to understand the massive explosion that occurred at the West Fertilizer Company in the town of West, Texas, last wednesday evening, there is still little insight into what may have caused the incident that killed 14 and injured 200. Nevertheless, some have attributed this lack of knowledge into the workplace conditions at this plant to a failure in workplace safety regulation. We talk to Tom O’Connor, Executive Director, National Council for Occupational Safety and Health.
Tonight on Political Gravity, your host Jane Hoffman has a couple of hot topics to discuss.
1) A mother of two, Sherry West, who lost both her children to gun violence over the last eighteen years, is in peril. Her thirteen month old son was shot in a stroller ride by two teens, just because she didn't have money to give them. That baby has now died. Jane will discuss the ridiculous gun violence in our country and how it seems to be getting worse. But is it really about guns?
2) Jane will be discussing the Guantanamo hunger fast which has been conducted by prisoners for over sixty-two days.
