Dennis Galer Goodwin is a British man recognized by Guinness World Records as going on the world's longest hunger strike, lasting 385 days and ending in 1973.[1] Goodwin ate only water during his hunger strike, although he was fed orally through a tube by authorities. His hunger strike was in protest of his incarceration in Wakefield Prison in West Yorkshire, England after being accused of rape.
