A talk with Farinas (Updated)

Miscelaneas de Cuba, a Sweden-based website run by ex-prisoner Oswaldo Alfonso, one of the 75 jailed in 2003, interviews another of the 75, Hector Palacios, who was released in 2006 and remains in Cuba.

In the audio, Palacios says he is on his way to Santa Clara to see Gullermo Farinas, and he and his colleagues will try at 1:00 p.m. to persuade him to end his hunger strike: “I believe we can save Coco Farinas…because he has already won.”

Update: A tweet from Yoani Sanchez at 1:50 p.m.: She is in Farinas’ hospital in Santa Clara with Hector Palacios, Gisela Delgado, Rene Gomez Manzano, Reinaldo Escobar, and pastor Mario de Taguayabon.
