On eighth day of hunger strike, Cuban activist Antunez vomiting blood

His hunger strike against the Castro regime is taking a heavy toll on Cuban activist Jorge Luis Perez Garcia, "Antunez."

Dissident Martha Beatriz Roque on Tuesday reported via email that Antunez that day had vomited blood and bile, as his body reacts to his decision to stop eating on Feb. 10.

Antunez started his hunger strike after Castro police and other goons on Feb. 5 broke into his home in Placetas, ransacked the place and stole many personal items. They also arrested Antunez.

He subsequently was arrested three more times in the next 10 days. The goons also did more damage to his home, including painting over anti-Castro slogans he had painted on the facade of his house.

Roque, who has had her own struggles with the dictatorship trying to besiege her in her home, on Tuesday posted on YouTube a video of Antunez narrating what happened during the first two raids on his home.
