Alert: Updated Prisoners of Faith Campaign Pack: Sami Muhyideen Al Hajj – Al Jazeera Cameraman Close to Death

Sami Al Hajj has been detained without charge or trial at Guantanamo for the past five years. In January 2007, he began a hunger strike in a desperate protest against his unfair detention and the inhumane conditions he endures daily. His strike continues unabated till today. The US military police resorted to feeding him by force via a tube through his nose. He has lost nearly a fifth of his body weight, and has weakened to the extent that a team of American and British psychiatrists have recently issued warnings that he may become the fifth person at Guantanamo to take his own life. According to their report, he is suffering from severe depression and has lost the will to live. He needs immediate medical attention.

Sami Muhyideen Al Hajj needs all our support and duas (prayers). We urge you this Ramadan to write to relevant government authorities and strongly urge them to pressurize the American government to release him immediately.
