Cuban political prisoner Jorge Cervantes has been transferred to a hospital pursuant to a 16-day hunger strike.
Cervantes, 41, a member of the pro-democracy Christian Liberation Movement, began the hunger strike in protest of his unjust imprisonment.
He's accused of the "crime" of placing anti-government signs in public (Castro's) property (meaning anywhere on the island of Cuba).
His mother, Alba Garcia Verdecia, who was able to see him in the hospital, says he looks "nearly dead."
Let's pray that the world's attention doesn't come too late, as in the case of Orlando Zapata Tamayo.
The striking image below is an older picture of Cervantes pursuant to an attack by the Castro regime's thugs, which thrust asphalt upon him.
