3 More Cuban Political Prisoners Have Started a Hunger Strike

From the blog Uncomon Sence:

Three Cuban dissidents — the prisoners of conscience Eduardo Díaz Fleitas and Diosdado González Marrero, and independent journalist Guillermo "Coco" Fariñas — have started hunger strike protests against the Castro dictatorship and to demand freedom for Cuban political prisoners, according to the Twitter feed for the independent Cuban magazine Convivencia. The three man have been in prison since what is known as "Black Spring of 2003", when the regime cracked down on dissidents and arrested 75 men and gave them lengthy prison terms with bogus accusations.
