Many had never heard of Cuban political prisoner Orlando Zapata Tamayo until his death after a lengthy hunger strike.

Please do not let that same anonymity happen to political prisoner Julián Antonio Moné Borrero, who has been on hunger strike since July 2 demanding his release from jail.

The world's attention, now but not later, may be enough to save his life.

From Cuba, the independent CIHPRESS news agency has an interview, en español, with Moné.
