One year ago today, Cuban pro-democracy activist and political prisoner, Orlando Zapata Tamayo, died pursuant to an 85-day hunger strike.
He died demanding that his fundamental human rights -- and those of all Cubans -- be recognized and respected.
His selfless and ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten.
