Fasting in solaridarity with Guillermo Fariñas

Bitacora Cubana reports that in Cuba a fasting chain in support of freedom of speech hero Guillermo Fariñas was started Thursday, March 23 by members of the Feminine Front Marta Abreu. This was repeated and continued at the heaquarters of various other organizations, including the Maceístas for Dignity, the Liberal Party of Cuba, Human Rights of Cuba, and closing the fasting chain on Monday, March 27 was the group Movement for Democracy.

Fariñas who has been on a hunger strike for more than 55 days was the unifying force for today's blogburst, to bring his plight to the light of the world. And it looks like he is having the same affect inside Cuba; unifying in solaridarity the various organizations, whose member do so at great personal risk.

En la unión está la fuerza. There is strenght in numbers.

Yet you read nothing about this man in the press. He's totally ignored. The press is more interested in reporting the U.S. govt. refusal to grant Castro the right to participate in the baseball competition and his interest in donating the proceeds to the victims of Katrina.
Then if something tragic happens to him he may get a brief report on the news. It's very sad.
