Spain Offers Help to Fariñas
The Spanish ambassador in Havana, Manuel Cacho, personally reiterated the offer of an airplane. Fariñas turned it down again, saying it “would be a shame to waste the gas on that.”

Spain offered an air ambulance. Fariñas said he would only accept it if he were allowed to return.

Alicia Hernández, the dissident’s mother, told the press that Fariñas talked with the political consel at the Spanish embassy in Havana, Carlos Pérez-Desoy, to whom he explained “that I would not leave to become an exile and neither would I leave to return.” The dissident asked the Spanish government to offer the air ambulance to the political prisoners who are ill.
