Hunger Striker Expelled by Force from Santa Clara Hospital / Katia Sonia

Hunger Striker Expelled by Force from Santa Clara Hospital / Katia Sonia
Katia Sonia, Translator: Unstated

Rolando Ferrer Espinosa, who has been on a hunger strike since September
28th under the motto "Let the impunity cease," was expelled by force
from the University of Arnaldo Mil?n Castro of Santa Clara Hospital on
the afternoon of October 31 while two dozen opponents were detained and
beaten.

Ferrer Espinoza contacted this reporter by telephone from his home and
declared that he was carried by more than ten military members who
forced him into a wheelchair and took him at a vertigo-inducing pace to
an ambulance that took him to his house.

He also denounced that Julio Batista Columbi? — who was his companion —
was beaten in his presence and that, at the time of the conversation, he
suffered a high fever after that administered to him intramuscularly 2
ampules of 500 mg of dipyrone and an ibuprofen tablet 400 mg orally.

Similarly, Ferrer Espinosa confirmed his position as a striker and his
concern for the fate of the detainees and of Alcides Rodriguez-Rivera,
another striker who remained hospitalized. He also expressed his thanks
for the concern and support of the National Executive Committee of the
Independent and Democratic Cuba Party and activists in the city of Santa
Clara.

Rolando Ferrer Espinosa lives at Calle 1ra # 25 y Base de Transporte de
Comercio, on the Carretera Central [Central Highway] Banda Esperanza at
km 295, El Hueco, Las Minas Santa Clara.
