Imprisoned Labor Leader in Grave Condition

Thursday, March 20, 2014
Independent labor leader, Vladimir Morera Bacallao, is in grave condition pursuant to a 70-day hunger strike protesting his unjust imprisonment.

Last year, Morera Bacallao was handed an 8-year prison sentence stemming from his activism with the Federation of Independent Cuban Workers (CTIC).

He is currently under intensive care in an isolated wing of the Hospital Arnaldo Milian Castro in Santa Clara.
