Cuban Hunger Striker Rushed to Hospital
Luis Enrique Santos Caballero, a 42-year old Cuban democracy activist and former political prisoner, has been rushed to the hospital.
It is believed he is near death.
Santos has been on a hunger strike since May 24th, protesting his family's forced eviction from their home by the Castro regime.
He and his wife have been staying at the home of Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antunez," head of the Central Opposition Coalition, of which Santos is a member.
Pro-democracy activists have been holding demonstrations in support of Santos throughout the week.
