HAVANA TIMES, March 15 — Cuban dissident Guillermo Fariñas has become a public figure thanks to a hunger strike he is waging over the demand for the release of a group of political prisoners the government describes as mercenaries.
While the countries of the European Union have again taken the side of a Cuban dissident, the island’s officials say they will not give in to blackmail.
What is your opinion?
Are fundamental human rights being violated in Cuba?
Do you believe that the hunger strike in which Fariñas is willing to die is a legitimate instrument of struggle?
Do you consider Fariñas a part of the convinced opposition or stubbornly suicidal?
Can someone call themself a dissident if they receive payments from the United States government?
Do you think this is part of a media campaign organized from the United States?
