A Patriot to Freedom
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
Orlando Zapata Tamayo is more than a martyr for a just cause. He is, and shall forever be, a patriot to freedom. Guillermo "Coco" Fariñas knows this all too well and has been on hunger strike since the death of his friend and colleague.
Reports are that Fariñas' health has deteriorated and may very well die as a result of his hunger strike. When asked if he was willing to die as a result of this hunger strike, he stated there are times when one must die for what is right.
What an incredible human being. Coco Fariñas is a humble, peaceful warrior for that which is most important to man: liberty.
Please keep Guillermo Coco Fariñas in your thoughts and prayers. And may God bless him and grant him that which he so selflessly gives his life so that others may have.
