The UN and the World Medical Association both require Guantanamo detainees to have access to independent medical advice and medical examinations when they need it. But they aren't getting it!

In response to this violation and a public plea by detainees, 150 doctors from around the world (including the U.S.) have published an open letter to President Obama urging him to correct this injustice. Support these doctors! Tell Obama to give Guantanamo detainees the medical attention they require.

Several detainees are engaged in a hunger strike -- it's their only means of bringing attention to their plight. In retaliation, military doctors are force-feeding them in a painful and abusive way.

The detainees are pleading for independent medical care because they say military doctors are compromising their duty to patients and putting their loyalty to their superiors first. They don't trust the military doctors, and without trust, acceptable medical care is impossible.

Please ask President Obama to provide independent medical examiners to Guantanamo detainees.
