On that Wonderful Cuban Healthcare

Guillermo Fariñas  is a doctor of psychology who one held  a government position as General Secretary of Healthcare Union Workers.   In 1995, when he smelled the stench of corruption and spoke out, he was imprisoned.  Now free, he is  in solidarity with other political prisoners, and is hunger striking to protest Cuba’s maltreatment and torture of these people.

Prayers for Guillermo Fariñas, whose self sacrifice follows  hunger striker, Orlando Zapata Tamayo, in shining the spotlight on abuses and corruption of the Castro regime.

Australian farmer victimized by bogus Climate Change agreement on Hunger Strike

Peter Spencer is not permitted to work his farm in order for the Australian government to meet Kyoto climate change standards.   His fight with the government over fair compensation began in 2005.   At the end of his rope, he commenced a hunger strike this month  (Dec 2009.)  The Australian media has finally stopped ignoring the plight of Spencer and other farmers like him.
