Guillermo Fariñas’ condition is worsening

According to the #OZT blog, Licet Zamora, the spokesperson for Guillermo Fariñas, is reporting that the dissident feels he is close to death. Pain from a blood clot on his neck is becoming unbearable and Fariñas is finding it difficult to stand.

Fariñas: "Tell her that I am about to depart"

posted on Monday, June 28, 2010

The situation of the opposition activist is dire.

Licet Zamora, the spokesperson for Guillermo Fariñas has told one of the members of our team, on a follow-up call, that Fariñas is convinced that he is going to die. “When I called this morning to monitor his situation, I heard him saying to someone next to him: ‘Tell her that I am about to depart.”

He is “suffering enormously, [from the] raging pain caused by a clot in his neck, his whole body aches, and it is hard [for him] to stand it. He tells me: ‘I want to die to end this situation’” stated Zamora. Fariñas has been in a hunger and thirst strike for more than four months.

“In spite the fact that the medical teams is battling to save the life of Guillermo Fariñas, they have no much hope because this is his [hunger] strike number 23, and his [body] is [virtually][…] collapsed” added Zamora. The rest of the support team to the opposition activist doesn’t have “much hope” either of Fariñas surviving this hunger strike.

Doctors have found a clot in the opposition activist’s left carotid artery. “He continues to be completely inflamed, although even more on his neck and the left arm shows a protrusion, among other inflammations.” Doctors have inclined his bed on a 45º angle “to prevent the clot from flowing [up] in his bloodstream and lodge itself in his head, lungs or heart because if it happened, he could not overcome the thrombosis.”

The medical team has performed multiple tests, and it is awaiting the results to “determine what kind of antibiotics they are going to administer to him at this moment” stated Zamora.

    Of course, it would be foolish to wait for the Church to say or do something. After all, it would conflict with their cowtowing and bootlicking.
