Cuban political prisoner Ariel Sigler Amaya has been left an invalid by his more than seven years in the Castro gulag. He is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.
They have broken his body, but try as they might, Sigler's captors have not quashed his spirit, they have not stamped out his will to fight the injustice and cruelty the Castro dictatorship's very existence represents.
Sigler's health condition is precarious, but his brother tells Radio Martí this week that Sigler is laying on the line what little of his health is left to protest the regime's lies.
Juan Francisco Sigler Amaya said his brother has decided to refuse any medical care, included needed medications, until he is transferred to a Havana hospital closer to his family, as the government had earlier promised. And if there is no response to his demand, Ariel is prepared to begin a hunger strike.
