Castro dictatorship denies delivery of food to ailing Cuban political prisoner

Opposition leader and human rights activist Sonia Garro has been held in prison for almost a year now without charges or trial. With her life in danger and her health failing, the Castro dictatorship in Cuba has now refused to allow her family members to deliver food to Garro.

Via SUPERPOLITICO (my translation):

SONIA GARRO IN DANGER!!!!! TYRANNY PROHIBITS HER FAMILY FROM DELIVERING FOOD!!!!

March 10, 2013

The Inter-American Commission for Human Rights (CIDH) is calling for "cautionary measures" to help Cuban opposition member Sonia Garro. CIDH considers the life and health of activist Sonia Garro to be in imminent danger. Garro, who is an activist with the Independent Afro Cuban Foundation and a Lady in White, was imprisoned on March 18th of last year and since then remains incarcerated at the Eastern Penitentiary for Women where she is constantly threatened. The Organization of American States (OAS) has determined that Sonia Garro's life and health are in imminent danger and has stated that the activist suffers from various illnesses. The organization also adds that because of an incident that took place in the prison, authorities suspended the delivery of food from her family members, which in her state of health, is her only source of sustenance. The organization called on the government of Cuba to adopt the necessary measures to guarantee the life and personal health of Sonia Garro.
