Londoners go on hunger strike for Shaker Aamer

A group of politicians and celebrities are set to go on a hunger strike in support of Guantanamo prisoner Shaker Aamer. It's hoped the fast will help raise awareness of the plight of the last British detainee at Guantanamo Bay who is expected to be reunited with his Wandsworth-based family later this month. Andy Worthington from the group 'We Stand with Shaker' has been speaking to London Live News about the 'Fast for Shaker' campaign.
