Cuba: Political prisoners continue hunger strikes

Via Uncommon Sense:

3 Cuban political prisoners on lengthy hunger strikes

Thanks to a so-called "reform" by the Castro dictatorships, many -- but not all -- Cuban dissidents have been allowed to travel overseas. Some of them, like blogger Yoani Sanchez, are starting to return.

But nothing has really changed, for they are returning to a Cuba where the repression of the regime's opponents is as virulent and violent as ever, to a Cuba where anti-regime activists are willing to lay their lives on the line in the name of freedom.

Three such activists are named Enrique Figuerola Miranda, Wilber Parada and Roberto Hernández, members of the Patriotic Union of Cuba, one of the most active opposition groups on the island.

Figuerola has been on hunger strike for more than 30 days, and Parada and Hernández are also on hunger strike to protest their continued imprisonment under some of the worst conditions imaginable.

Quoting a dispatch from UNPACU leader Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia, Pedazos de la Isla has more details on the three prisoners, as well as other UNPACU actvisits suffering the brunt of Castroite repression.
