Cuban Law Student Remains Imprisoned, On Hunger Strike

Tuesday, September 9, 2014
On May 13, 2013, Yojaine Arce Sarmiento, a young Cuban law student, was arrested for delivering a speech on human rights in his hometown of Caimanera.

Arce Sarmiento, a democracy activist with the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU), is being held in a punishment cell in the Provincial Prison of Guantanamo, where he is currently on the 25th day of a hunger strike.

He is being denied any medical attention.

Needless to say, no charges -- or trial -- have been filed against him.

More "reform" you can't believe in.
