Fariñas Harrassed in Hospital

Remember him? The Cubanacan Press director? The independent journalist in Cuba in a hunger strike for SIX months in order to gain the right to freely access the Internet and use his email?

He's been IV fed for a while now and kept barely alive in a hospital. However, all that could end. Why? Because Fariñas is threatening to have the IV removed unless he is given a room where he can have visitors and a phone that works.

His mother tells EFE the story, in Spanish via El Nuevo Herald.
