Six Cuba political prisoners plan fast to mark "black spring" anniversary

Six Cuban political prisoners this week called on the world to join them in fast and prayer from March 12 to March 31 to mark the seventh anniversary of the "black spring" crackdown, which concluded with their imprisonment.

In a statement, the prisoners say their demonstration is not for themselves but for all of Cuba. Their hope, their faith is that by joining together in common cause and common action, the day of Cuba's freedom will be nearer.

The six prisoners are:

Oscar Biscet González

Julio Gálvez Rodríguez

Ricardo González Alfonso

Normando Hernández González

Régis Iglesias Ramírez
