Gavage – Guantanamo Bay

Guantanamo Bay has become the worlds most infamous detention center. Force Feeding has become the latest form of which the machine tries to submit its inmates. This short film explores that grueling procedure.

Most of the inmates at Guantanamo Bay are kept there without trial. The only way left to protest is to go on hunger strike. Some may argue it is essential to feed them via force feeding or a tube to keep them alive. Do the inmates desire to live anymore hence the strikes. What is a man to live for without his freedom.

Personal Choice

This is the story of 2000 Capetonians protesting against the prohibition of marijuana on 4 May 2013.
Prohibition is a harmful law that makes criminals out of people who choose to use a drug that affects only themselves and no-one else. Prohibition is the doctrine that allows and encourages the police to arrest people for marijuana possession, use, growing and sale. Arrest, forced court appearances and imprisonment are violent, unethical acts that do clear harm to people’s lives, unlike the use of marijuana, which harms no one. Whether you are for or against marijuana on a personal level, it should not be up to any person to forbid any substance from another person. The only person you may make that choice for is yourself.

Bulgaria economy at point of no return

Published on Feb 19, 2013
An analyst says the unfortunate situation in Bulgaria is due to decades of massive state spending which has defied good economics and devastated the country’s financial system past the point of no return. The comment comes as several thousand people took to the streets across Bulgaria on Tuesday to protest against the right-wing government of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov. Earlier on Monday, Bulgaria’s unpopular finance minister, Simeon Djankov, was removed from office after protests over high electricity bills snowballed into anti-government demonstrations.

“We’ve lived through communism and remember the personality cult towards (the dictator) Todor Zhivkov. But what we have now surpasses it — it’s Boyko for breakfast, Boyko for lunch, Boyko for dinner, while people don’t have anything to eat. We’re fed up,” a protester was quoted as saying. Press TV has conducted an interview with economic expert Rollin Amore to further discuss the issue.
