Independent labor leader, Vladimir Morera Bacallao, is in critical condition pursuant to over 90 days on a hunger strike protesting his unjust imprisonment.
In November 2013, Morera Bacallao was sentenced to eight years in prison by the Castro regime for his independent organizing activities.
He's been recently transferred to the Orlando Milan Castro Hospital in Santa Clara.
"All of us, his family, are opposed to the hunger strike. But he asks us not to insist, to respect his decision. He wants to prove his innocence with his life," his wife, Vilma Morera Bacallo, told Diario de Cuba.
