Reality of socialism rears its ugly head in Cuba

Orlando Zapata Tamayo died Feb. 23 after refusing food since December, the first Cuban victim of a hunger strike in 40 years. Imprisoned in 2003 for disrespecting authority, he was sentenced to 25 years for activism behind bars and was considered a “prisoner of conscience” by Amnesty International.
