Host Dick Gordon speaks with Carlos Warner, an attorney for 11 detainees held in Guantánamo Bay. He says as many as 130 have been on hunger strike since February, and they want the world to know their story. One of his clients made a lamp with scraps found inside the facility.

Fayiz Mohammad al Kandari, a Guantanamo Bay detainee on hunger strike, says he and other detainees made this lantern with bits of paper, cardboard and a water bottle inside the facility. “We made this lantern for those in the world who remember and pray for us during this time of suffering,” he told his attorneys. “Use it to bring peace to your heart.”
