Via Net for Cuba, a statement from Ramon Saul Sanchez, on his ninth day on hunger strike:
STATEMENT FROM RAM?N SAUL S?NCHEZ
My express Will and Determination:
I, Ram?n Sa?l S?nchez, prohibits that any person, entity or government institution including the paramedics, remove me from this site of the hunger strike, at the Monument of the Martyrs of the 2506 Brigade, to be transported to any hospital, clinic and or other location that provides medical services. This I ask in the event that I loose consciousness, I humbly ask that my will be respected in this prohibition and determination.
This prohibition will be instantly lifted in the event in which the President of the United States, or whom he designates, proves in writing or gives public Testimony that the United States government is willing to meet with the Commission that represents The Cuban Community.
Ram?n Sa?l S?nchez
