Farinas, sticking with it

The German news agency DPA reports (in Spanish only) on a phone interview with hunger striker Guillermo Farinas in Santa Clara. Farinas said that an Interior Ministry officer visited him in the hospital yesterday to urge him to abandon his hunger strike. He declined, insisting on his demand that 26 dissidents be released from jail to attend to their health problems. The two ended up talking baseball, Farinas said.
