Cuba: Fariñas asks Chilean president to intervene at the UN for Cuban political prisoners

Cuban dissident Guillermo Fariñas has requested that Chilean President Sebastián Piñera to officially request that the United Nations convene a Security Council meeting to discuss Cuba’s human rights violations, and the plight of political prisoners.

President Fernando Lugo of Paraguay has volunteered his services to mediate with the Communist regime, as if there was any middle ground.

Fariñas is currently on hunger strike to call international attention to his cause. As you may recall, Osvaldo Zapata Tamayo died earlier this month from his hunger strike, after being tortured by the regime “excellent medical care” by being denied hydration.
