Two More Cuban Political Prisoners Taken to Hospitals

Orlando Fundora Álvarez, member of the group of 75, from the black spring arrests in 2003, who had been on hunger strike since March 10, has been transported to Alta Habana hospital. This has been confirmed by his son Victoriano Simil Triana.

Cuban political prisoner Eduardo Díaz Fleitas was hospitalized today, suffering the effects of a fast he started to commemorate this week's seventh anniversary of the "black spring" crackdown, according to the online magazine Convivencia's Twitter feed.

Díaz, who in 2003 was sentenced to 21 years in prison, was being treated for dehydration and hypoglycemia.

Late last month and earlier this month, Díaz was one of several political prisoners who went on hunger strike after the death of political prisoner Orlando Zapata Tamayo. They called off the protest after supporters expressed concern about their health.
