Cuban Dissident Thanks Cuban Church for its Interest

The Cuban dissident Guillermo Fariñas thanked the archbishop of Havana for his pronouncement on the hunger strike, now underway for 55 days.

“We thank him for speaking out in a pubic manner about this conflict,” declared Fariñas, referring to the declaration of Cardinal Jaime Ortega published this week in the Catholic digital magazine New Word.

It is not common for a Cuban cardinal to reflect on the suffering of the Cuban people in any publication.  Many Catholics said they are afraid despite having lived through years of discrimination for being Catholic in Cuba.

The church in Cuban does not publish what happens every Sunday with the Ladies in White.
